Hash Brown Sausage Cups



By far the most popular recipe was the Crescent Bacon-Cheese Tartlets.  Though, I have to thank everyone that commented on my Reuben Rolls!  Thinking about how to tweak the Crescent Bacon-Cheese Tartlet recipe, I decided to go with sausage.  This is actually a mini version of a hash brown casserole.  I like the idea of using a little leftover sausage, peppers and potatoes to make a new breakfast treat.  Instead of making the mini-muffin cups, I made a larger version in a regular size muffin pan.  My version is meant more for breakfast rather than an appetizer.

After you look over the recipe, be sure to leave a comment to be entered in the Creative Creations Giveaway.  Thanks to Pillsbury for providing me with free crescent rolls to try out their recipe!  Now, we want to do the same for you.  Pillsbury is providing a Creative Creations gift pack through MyBlogSpark.  The gift includes 2 VIP coupons (valid in U.S. only) and some holiday serving platters.  If you left a comment on the last post, you’ll get an extra entry.  And, if you’re a follower of my blog, you’ll also get an extra entry there too!  Hurry though, all entries must be made by midnight, December 22, 2009. (This contest has ended - the winner was Karin!)

Hash Brown Sausage Cups

1 pkg Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Rolls

1 egg, beaten

2 tablespoons sour cream

1/2 cup sausage, browned & drained

1/4 cup chopped green & red peppers

1 tablespoon chopped onion

1/4 cup cooked, diced potatoes

salt & pepper to taste

1/4 cup cheddar cheese

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Unroll crescent rolls.  Press two triangles together at the seams to form a square.  Press each square into the muffin pan.  Mix egg and sour cream together.  Spoon about two teaspoons of egg mixture into bottom of each roll.  Combine sausage, peppers, onion and potatoes.  Spoon a heaping tablespoon of sausage mixture into each roll.  Top with remaining egg mixture.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper, if desired.  Top with cheddar cheese.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 4.
