Breakfast is the meal a lot of us seem to bypass even though we all know it is the most important meal of the day. The biggest reason a lot of us pass it up is because the mornings are so busy. So a breakfast that is quick, and can even be made ahead, is the solution.
Queue these sausage pockets. They can be made really fast – or the day before for a quick morning reheating. They are also a great option for freezer cooking. Just freeze them on a baking sheet, and then store in freezer bags. When reheating from a frozen state, I recommend reheating them in the oven though for better texture.
Cook the sausage in a large skillet on medium heat until browned & cooked through. Mix in the cream cheese until well combined.
Turn off the heat & stir in the cheddar cheese & seasoning if you are using it.
Make 8 rectangles out of the 2 cans of crescent rolls by pressing together 2 triangle cuts for each rectangle. Spoon a dollop of the sausage mixture in the middle of each, and pull up the corners to the middle, giving it a slight twist and pinching all the edges closed.
