Sausage Cream Cheese Purses

I started making these sausage cream cheese purses long before I started weight watchers, and they were wildly popular with my husband, so I had to figure out a way to make them WW friendly! They are so delicious and I think if you let yourself, you can easily forget that you're even on a weight loss journey. Ok, get a pen and paper, because this recipe is a doozie!

Sausage Cream Cheese Purses

1 Roll of Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls

1/2 Package of Fat Free Cream Cheese (4oz)

1/2 Roll of Turkey Sausage

Makes: 8 purses

Brown your sausage in a skillet and sprinkle on your favorite seasoning. I like to use italian seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes, because The Flowers like the heat! Once the sausage is browned, stir it in with your room temperature cream cheese. Put one spoonful of the sausage and cheese mixture at the big end of the crescent roll and roll it together. Repeat for the 7 other rolls. Bake at 365 or 375 for 10-15 minutes depending on how your oven works and how brown you prefer your rolls.

Now that I've modified it to be 5 Weight Watchers Points per purse, we like to eat this for a quick and easy dinner during the week. These were also the perfect appetizer for the Four Fat Chicks weekend in Dallas party. Of course if you need more than than 8 purses, double the recipe and enjoy!
