ROLY-POLY BREAKFAST BALLS
1/2 lb. Ground sausage
1 8-count pkg. Crescent rolls
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
16 slices Bacon
In a skillet, brown sausage until thoroughly cooked. Drain and pat with a paper towel to get rid of any excess grease. (This step may be done the night before. Refrigerate cooked and drained sausage in a covered container.)
Remove crescent roll dough from package and spread each piece on a sheet of wax paper.
Place one spoonful of cooked sausage and one spoonful of grated cheese in the center of each piece of dough.
Roll dough into a ball and place on a cookie sheet. Bake according to package directions.
Optional – for an extra special breakfast, decorate the cooked breakfast balls with faces, using small pieces of vegetables or fruit. You might even try adding a bacon bow tie when you serve the breakfast balls. ; For each bow tie take two pieces of bacon, fold and twist together in the shape of a bow, and then cook in the microwave until very crisp.
