Sausage Pillows

This recipe is fun to make and great for presentation. I took the traditional "chicken" recipe and swapped it for turkey sausage. It was better than the chicken by far. Now I would like to try this recipe with crab and that will for sure be the best. Shredded crab meat with a little lemon juice and lemon zest. I can taste it now - crab pillows!!

Sausage Pillows
  • 1 lb turkey sausage, cooked
  • 6 oz of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 -4 tablespoons green onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 box seasoned stuffing mix (crushed into crumbs )
  • 1 stick melted butter
Cream sauce
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • 1/2 cup milk
In large bowl, mix together cream cheese, green onion, mushrooms, 2 Tbsp butter, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in sausage and set aside. Open crescent rolls and carefully unroll dough. May want sprinkle flour on both sides to avoid sticking. Separate each tube into 4 rectangles. Seal seam in center of each rectangle. Place one heaping spoonful of sausage mixture on half of each rectangle. Fold over other half of roll dough and seal edges, creating a pillow. Dip each pillow in melted butter and then stuffing mix. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with cream sauce.

For cream sauce - combine ingredients in sauce pan and cook over medium heat until heated through.
