Tailgate Menu Number Three + Weekend

Our football game last week fell on Thursday night- which means dinner tailgate!
I made probably the biggest hit I have ever made for the tailgate and it was by far the most simple thing- ever! 

Enter Crescent Sausage Bites!

I ended up dividing these up and saving a handful to keep at home. All of the bites at the tailgate were eaten, and we heated them up for breakfast the next morning. I think they were even better the second day! I am not a big sausage person, but these are simply amazing with the cream cheese. And what's better than crescent rolls?!

1 lb. hot sausage (pork or turkey)
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
2 packages crescent rolls
Dash salt & ground black pepper

-Brown sausage; drain. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Blend in cream cheese until the cream cheese is melted.
-Unroll one package of crescent rolls and place on a baking sheet- {I covered mine with foil to make it easy to wrap up later}. Press the seams together to seal them. Spread the sausage mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough, and leave about a 1/2-inch border along each edge.
-Unroll the second package of crescent rolls and place on top of the sausage mixture. Press seams together again and the edges together to seal. 
-Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until crescent roll dough is golden brown.
-Use a pizza cutter to slice into small squares.

Other things we had at our tailgate-
-Buffalo Chicken Wings
-Freshly popped popcorn in personal bags {found at Hobby Lobby}

We were so excited that Weeks got to meet Mr. Wolf! He was so cute looking at him. To be honest, I think he was a little scared! Please check out his football Babylegs socks- they got a lot of attention. So cute.

Since a weeknight game left us with the whole rest of the weekend, we were able to attend a wedding at home. Nothing beats this view!

This poor guy had his 6 month checkup last week and was left with a high fever from his shots. He has always done fine so I'm thinking it was the flu shot this time. It was pitiful and I was terrified. He's always such a trooper, even when he doesn't feel well. 

Sunday morning breakfast at home...

And our little guy was feeling much better and let us know splashing around in his bath tub!

Hope your week is off to a great start ;)

That appetizer looks so simple but YUM. I think it will be a big hit the next time we gather with friends for a game!

Poor Weeks with his fever, but thank goodness he sprung back in no time! He is getting to be such a big boy - so handsome!

Those crescent sausage bites look so tasty! I've been needing inspiration for tailgate food this weekend, think I may just add these to the list! Glad you're little guy is feeling much better.

Those sausage bites are the perfect football addition - although they look SERIOUSLY addicting!
