Units Scale
  • 1 can croissants or crescent squares
  • 1 pound sausage, casings removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 375F and lightly grease a rectangular casserole or baking dish.
  2. Unroll your croissants and cover the bottom of your pan with the dough. Trim off the excess of the roll and save it for the top.
  3. Cook your sausage over medium heat in a large skillet, breaking it up with your wooden spoon as it cooks. While it's cooking, add the cumin, crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper, and stir it through evenly.
  4. Once your sausage is cooked through, add the cream cheese to the skillet, and stir as it melts to combine it with the sausage.
  5. Add your sausage cream cheese mixture to your casserole dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar evenly over the sausage, then cover the whole thing with another layer of your croissant dough. If you have any excess, trim it off.
  6. Bake the whole thing for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is browned.
  7. Allow this to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting into squares.
