Thanksgiving Delight - Cranberry Goat Cheese & Cheddar Crescent Sausage Balls

My mom would make these every holiday morning, especially when we had guests coming over. I tried to make them one year when my home was the host location for a family gathering. Let's just say, I was glad my mom came over before the crowd did. I have made some since then (getting better with my cooking...lol) for just a breakfast meal at my home and I will say they were delicious. 

My dearest Artney Walker of My Pretty Brown Fit has a recipe for some sausage balls that will definitely be the highlight of your appetizers for the family gatherings this holiday season. You can also find this delicious recipe on her website.  She was so nice that she even attached a coupon for the Pillsbury Original Crescents in her recipe. :-) 

I'm definitely making these Thursday morning!! 

1 lb of spicy sausage
1 cup  of reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz candied cranberry goat cheese (found at Publix)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp of parsley, chopped
2 tbsps of all-purpose flour
1 can of Pillsbury Original Crescents 

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 15x10x1 inch pan with foil; spray with cooking pray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix sausage, cheddar cheese, candied cranberry goat cheese, and parsley; mix well using hands or spoon.
  3. Unroll crescent dough on surface; dust each side with 1 tablespoon of flour.
