Sausage, Herb, and Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

I had been perusing through Paula Deen's Family Cookbook, and I came across this appetizer. Sausage and cream cheese wrapped in a flaky crescent roll, and only 5 ingredients? I was sold. Any way to dress up crescent rolls gets 2 thumbs up in my book. These are best served warm, but still taste great at room temperature, and are easily portable!

4-oz (1/2 of an 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
2 tsp chopped fresh sage
1/2-lb breakfast sausage (Used spicy hot sausage roll)
1/4 tsp hot sauce (Used Frank's Red Hot sauce)
8-oz tube refrigerated crescent rolls

1. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese and chopped sage until well mixed.
2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage until cooked through, 5-7 minutes, breaking it up with a fork as you go.
3. Stir in hot sauce. Let cool.
4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
5. Remove the crescent roll dough from the tube and open the dough triangles so they lie flat.
5. Spread cream cheese over each triangle.
6. Top each triangle with an even layer of sausage.
7. Roll the dough into a crescent according to package directions, and transfer to a baking sheet.
8. Bake until golden, about 12-15 minutes.
9. Serve warm or at room temperature.
