DT-TTT Holiday Sausage Rolls

DT-TTT Holiday Sausage Rolls

Dawn Thompson, Donahue, IA, served these delicious rolls at a TTT Party last year. After enjoying one high-fat roll. I immdeiately asked her for the recipe so I could revise the recipe in The Healthy Exchanges Way to share with everyone. Besides, I wanted to savor more then just one! My way, I could have three.

Serves 12 (3 each)

8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1 teaspoon JO's Sausage Seasoning
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 (8-ounce) package Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese
1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Remove from heat. Stir in JO's Sausage Seasoning and parsley flakes. In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese with a spoon until soft. Add browned meat. Mix well to combine. Unroll crescent rolls and place on large working surface. Press well to seal perfoations. Evenly spread cream cheese mixture over dough. Roll as for jelly roll starting at long side. Place on large cutting board and freeze for 20 minutes or until firm. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut firmed dough into 1/4-inch pieces to form 36 rolls. Place rolls on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Place cookie sheets on wire racks to cool 5 minutes. Remove rolls from cookie sheets. Continue cooling or serve warm.

HINT: 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon ground sage, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder can be used instead of JO's Sausage Seasoning.
