Midterms are finally over. Hallelujah.
This past week was what I liked to call “hell week”. First, midterms all week. Also, school from 9ish-12ish everyday, work from 12:30-6 after that, and then go home, study, and go to sleep.
Needless, to say, I did not eat healthy or work out all week. Partly because I didn’t have time and partly because I was feeling sorry for myself.
Because normally my work day and school day only goes from 6:30-12ish. Which gives me plenty of time to do homework, clean, make dinner, and exercise.
I’m kind of a princess aren’t I?
But this week should be much, much better, and it’s only a four day week because this coming weekend is Nevada Day (Thanks Nevada!) And my mom is coming to see me!!! Needless to say, I’m excited. SO EXCITED.
Plus I got to make these delicious roll ups for dinner this weekend. Like I said, I normally cook healthy. But on the weekends I like to have more fun with my cooking by making whatever I want.
The normal schedule is dinner out on Friday, easy meal/breakfast for dinner Saturday night, nice Sunday night dinner. Anyone else have these kinds of traditions? It’s what my mom does at home too! Some things never change, even if you move away 😉
Anyways, about these cream cheese sausage roll ups. It’s one of B’s faves and it’s a family recipe. His brother sent it to me and I adapted it just a tad. And thus, Brandon was a very, very happy man 🙂
P.S. These taste kind of like biscuits and gravy, which is one of my favorites! Luckily, these are easier!
P.P.S. These are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
1-2 package(s) refrigerated croissant dough (cresent roll dough)
1 lb. breakfast sausage, regular
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. mustard powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
First, prepare by opening the roll(s) of dough. Spread it out so that it is flat. Preheat the oven to 350* F.
Brown the sausage in a pan. Drain fat.
Add cream cheese, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Mix together.
(I know, it’s not very pretty. But it’s delicious!)
Place about 3 Tbs. of mixture into each triangle (for 1 package dough) or 1-2 Tbs. of mixture into each triangle (for 2 packages of dough). (I like it better with less filling, so next time I will use 2 rolls of dough. If you like lots of filling though, go for 1 package :)) Roll them up around the dough and place on greased baking sheets. Some of them were messy because Brandon and I had an important rerun of The Office to get to, and the commercial break was over!
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve these babies! Yum!
They’re even kind of pretty rolled up and baked (in my opinion).
I would serve them with orange juice. Just my opinion.
You could even make them mini for appetizers!
Because that’s what I would do.
Have a great week everyone! And if this is your hell week, good luck my friend.
