  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened, cut into pieces
  • 1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • Sliced green onions, if desired
  • Fresh parsley sprigs, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sausage, onion and garlic; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Drain. Add sauerkraut and cream cheese; mix until cheese is slightly melted.
