Recipe Tips:

  • Cooking Sausage – After cooking the sausage make sure to drain to remove any excess grease. You can even use the sausage crumbles that are already cooked to save time.
  • Crescent Dough – Press the crescent roll dough completely in the bottom of the baking pan. This ensures that every bite has all the layers.
  • Soggy Bottom – If you have a problem with the bottom layer not cooking completely, you may need to cover with aluminum foil. This allows the top to not burn while cooking all the way through.
