  • 1 pound pork sausage

  • Fry sausage, onion, green chiles, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a skillet on top of the stove. Drain if needed.
  • Add cream cheese and cook until melted.  Spread one can of the crescent rolls in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and crimping openings in dough together to make a flat bottom. Add sausage and creamed mixture on top.  Sprinkle on shredded cheddar cheese.  Spread the other can of crescent rolls on top crimping edges together.
  • Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until top is nicely browned.  Slice into pieces with a knife or use a pizza cutter to slice.  I made about 20 pieces but I sliced some larger than others
