Recipe Information
Delicious and easy

Sheila Kosko

Serves/Makes:4 logs

  • 1 lb (.5 kg). sausage (any flavor)
  • 1 8oz. block cream cheese
  • 2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
  • garlic powder
  • poppy seeds
  • Fry sausage, crumbling it as it cooks; drain well.
  • Mix sausage and cream cheese in a bowl until well incorporated.
  • Take rolls out but only separate them into large rectangles, pressing triangle seams together. You should end up with 2 rectangles per package.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over all 4 rectangles.
  • Sprinkle each lightly with garlic powder.
  • Roll each into a log.
  • Slightly moisten top of each roll with water.
  • Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  • Freeze logs until firm enough to slice (about 15 minutes).
  • Slice logs into about 3/4" pieces.
  • Place on cookie sheet (poppy seeds up).
  • Bake at 350 degrees (175 C.) for about 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.
  • Enjoy!
These are a total party pleaser and a great make-ahead appetizer as you can freeze the logs until you're ready. I advise you at least double this recipe for a large crowd...They dissapear in no time! They really are Delicious!
