Try It Tuesday

This Sunday was “Waffle Home” at church (this is basically when you invite a friend to your Lifegroup and also bring food! Because, we Baptists love our potlucks). I wanted something easy and tasty. Then I remembered a dear family friend made a yummy dish at our annual New Year’s Eve  party, and I searched the interwebs for the recipe! I found it super quick–thanks, Pinterest!

Here’s what you need:

1 lb. sausage (pork or turkey–whichever you like!)

1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese

2 pkgs crescent rolls

Salt and pepper (just a dash or so)

 

 

First, brown the sausage and drain. Sprinkle a dash of salt and pepper. Then, add in the cream cheese and stir until the cheese is melted.

 

After that, unroll one package of crescent rolls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Be sure to push the seams of the rolls together to seal them. Next, spread the sausage mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough. Leave about a 1/2-inch border around the sides.

Finally, unroll the other crescents on top of the sausage mixture, pressing the edges together to seal.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until crescent roll dough is golden brown. Then, cut into small squares and enjoy! I used a pizza cutter and it worked wonders!

OH. EM. GEE. This was soooooo good! I’m pretty sure I ate about six little squares and could’ve eaten more if I didn’t have to share with my Lifegroup-ha! I will absolutely, definitely be making these again!

My Favorite Things {To Eat}

Merry Monday before Christmas!

With the big day only a tad over 48 hours away, you’re probably starting to think about what you’re going to take to your many family functions. If you don’t want to actually bring something, I’ve got some great suggestions for you! Every year I look forward to this season because its when the best of the best foods come around my house. And my family does not skimp when it comes to holiday eating!

Here’s my Top Four Favorite Holiday Treats!

 

#4. Jalapeno Poppers

Full disclosure: my dad makes these almost exclusively in the summertime. However, we are preparing for Ultra Feast on New Year’s Eve and he has already said that these are totes on the menu. I am SO excited! The poppers may seem a little extreme, given that they’re made with a crazy-hot pepper, but they’re actually not as spicy as you might think. The cream cheese really helps to mellow out the kick! Plus, the peppers are wrapped in bacon. And everything is better with bacon! Get the recipe here!

 

#3. Fruit Pizza

We haven’t had this dessert is sooooooo long! It used to be a staple for our New Year’s Eve partay’s, but sadly, its gone away. I’m hoping to revive it this year! Its a pretty simple recipe. All you need is sugar cookie dough (you can even use store bought!), cream cheese, powdered sugar, and your favorite fruits! Get the stats here!

 

#2. Chili Cheese Dip

I love this dip because its always a home run when there’s a lot of people and its super simple to make! Its perfect for the colder months and can be tailored to fit your tastes! You add or subtract just about anything from this recipe and its still awesome! Get some ideas for your own creation at this site!

 

#1. Peanut Butter Ball

My sister found this recipe on Pinterest and I have never before been so thankful for the internet. This sweet dip takes two of my favorite foods: peanut butter and chocolate and makes them edible with a spoon. (Well, I guess you could eat peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon, but this is SO much better!) Again, its a super simple recipe that looks like you’ve spent all day making, so you can totes impress your in-laws! This dip is good with sugar cookies, graham crackers, and apple slices!

 

 

Happy eating!
