1 lb of Sage flavored sausage
1 sweet Vidalia (or large yellow) onion, diced
4 tbs flour
2 cups milk
8 oz cream cheese, softened and cubed
salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1 package Pillsbury Crescent rolls
1 package Pillsbury Golden Layers Flaky Biscuitsor try my 7UP Biscuit Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a large, deep skillet cook crumbled sausage over medium heat until browned.
Drain all grease except about 1 tsp. and add diced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large sauce pot heat milk over medium low heat and whisk in flour.
Cook and constantly stir for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened.
Then add cream cheese and stir until melted and well combined.
Add salt and pepper to taste. I love me some pepper so I add lots of cracked black pepper!
Pour sausage mixture into gravy and mix well.
Grease a 9X13 baking dish, then spread out flat sheet of crescent roll.
Pour sausage gravy onto the crescent sheet and spread to cover.
Top with flaky biscuit dough, spaced evenly on top.
Bake for 20-22 minutes at 350 degrees until biscuits are golden brown on top.
* Some people have commented that they bake the crescent roll bottom for about 5 minutes before putting the gravy on. This gives you a crunchier “more done” crust.
