Easy Apple Sausage Puffs

Apple Sausage Puffs - Farmgirl Follies

And the winner of Family Iron Chef: Battle Apples is …


She made Apple Sausage Puffs. They were mighty tasty. Everything is always tasty at these family affairs. We know how to cook up the secret ingredient and tantalize the taste buds. It’s always hard to choose a favorite, but we don’t mind going back for seconds just to be sure …


Apple dishes included everything from quesadillas to fruit salad to meatballs. We enjoyed apple sweet potato soup and German bierocks and apple cheddar popovers and more. No one leaves these things hungry, believe me.


Usually, no one’s in a hurry to leave at all. There’s a lot a chit-chattin’ that goes on before and after the eatin’. No matter that snow flurries were flying. There are discussions to be had and gossip to be shared and stories to swap. It was a lovely evening.

Next month’s challenge? You’ll never guess.

She chose Cheerios.

If you happen to have some cool and tasty ideas, send them my way! For now, I leave you with the winning recipe, courtesy the cute little blonde that cooks in my kitchen.



Apple Sausage Puffs

1 package Jimmy Dean bulk sausage

2 oz. cream cheese

1 apple, finely chopped

2 pkgs. crescent roll dough

Brown sausage. Drain. Add sausage to crumbled cream cheese and apples. Combine.

Place one tablespoon sausage mixture on crescent triangle. Roll and curve ends. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until crescents are nicely browned and insides are bubbly.

P.S. You could use other cheeses, swap apples for pears and add pecans — the possibilities are endless. The taste is delicious. Have fun experimenting!

And P.S. You might want to make a double batch!

    Those dinner rolls look mighty tasty too! Cheerios. You can ground them up add a bit of sugar and butter for a pie crust. It’s like the graham cracker crust only with the cheerios. Also, use the ground up cheerios as you would dry bread crumbs as a coating for chicken and things.
