Biscuit & Gravy Sausage Dippers

Life gets busy, it gets hectic, it gets messy….literally at times.  So one morning, while cleaning the house up in a hurry for unexpected company, my boys were just about begging me for biscuits and gravy.  I had zero time for that nonsense, but the “mom-guilt” was setting in.  Scanning my fridge and pantry I found a few staples that I could conjure up into their breakfast favorite; my fingers were crossed at least.

Whelp, all I can say in conclusion is that THIS is the way I may always make them “biscuits and gravy” from here on out.  It was quick, virtually no cleanup, and no mess with having young boys try and cut their biscuits with a fork, dropping crumbs on the ground, gravy dribbles across the table…sausage grease on the stove, flour on the counter…nope!  Just baked and rolled sausage crescent in hand with a gravy dipping sauce.  Oh the obviousness that’s been in my house this entire time…

*For a “crustier” baked dough, simply brush a bit of egg wash (1 egg+ 1 Tbsp water) overtop the prepared sausage crescents prior to baking.

**You can also add cheese and/or scrambled eggs, cooked bacon, jalapenos etc. to this prior to rolling up and baking.

The Starting Lineup

  • 1 package crescent roll dough
  • 8 sausage links (precooked/ready-to-eat)
  • Cream gravy (homemade or packet, ‘Pioneer’ brand makes a pretty good one)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Lay out the perforated triangles of crescent roll dough onto your baking sheet and place a sausage link, horizontally, at the widest end of the triangle.  Roll the sausage and dough up towards the point, making sure there’s about 1-2″ in between each one.

Place in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the dough puffs up and turns a beautiful golden brown.

Serve with a cup of warm peppered, cream gravy to dip into and some fresh fruit!  Enjoy!

Toddler Crescent Roll Pizza

Despite this recipe’s title, everyone can enjoy these, but they were concocted with lil ones in mind.  I have two toddlers of my own and the youngest still has yet to get his molars in…making it hard to chew some foods, Friday night pizza being one of them.

After opening a can of crescent rolls one day I noticed the triangular shape and I also just happened to have some pizza like toppings on hand.  I tried it, it worked.  Wonderfully might I add!  My boys (then only 2 & 1) ate it up with no problem!  We’re talking a one-year-old with little to no teeth!

You can add WHATEVER toppings you like as well.  Sneak in some veggies, add sausage or fun cheeses, you can even make this a dessert pizza with Nutella and sliced strawberries or bananas.  The options are endless!!

So if you have some youngin’s, first time eaters or are just searching through your pantry for somethig quick and easy, give these a go!

The Starting Lineup

  • 1 roll crescent dough
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • 1 package pepperoni
  • 1 mozzarella/cheddar cheese 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (or according to crescent roll package instructions).

On a baking sheet, lay out the crescent rolls and flatten with your fingertips just slightly.  You want to push the dough out just a bit so the “slice” is wider.  *Be brave when opening those dang delicious crescent rolls.  If  there’s one thing in this world that scares me, its opening one of those!*POW*…I shudder…


Next, place about 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce onto each triangular slice.  Spread with the back of a spoon to cover.

Next top with the shredded cheese of your choice.  Follow that with your kiddos favorite toppings and then a bit more of that yummy cheese!

  


Pop these into your preheated oven for 10-12 minutes and you’re done!

Allow them to cool for just a minute for those tiny mouths, but I guarantee these will be an easy lil guy & gal crowd pleaser in your home!!
