Sausage and Cheese Turnovers

I found this recipe over at Cindy's blog. I thought they sounded interesting and different and I have been meaning to try out a homemade crescent dough recipe. I had planned on making her version, but I read(after arriving home from the store) that it needed mashed potato flakes, so I found another recipe for the crescent dough.

Sausage and Cheese Turnovers-shared from What's for dinner?
1 lb italian sausage, casings removed
1.5 cups reduced fat shredded cheese
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened.
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt(this was omitted)
1 recipe for crescent rolls

Crumble and brown sausage, drain. Mix together garlic, sausage, cheeses, and pepper. I found the easiest was to use my hands to mix it.

Divide dough into seven portions. Roll out into a square or a circle in my case. Cut into sections. I had some in squares and some in triangles, whatever is easier for you. Place 1 tbsp of sausage mix in center of dough. Flatten and fold dough over. Make sure to seal the edges. Place on cookie sheet in 350 degree oven for 15-18 mins.

**We loved this recipe! K only wishes tomorrow wasn't Friday or lent, he asked if he could have them for lunch on saturday or even for breakfast. We will definitely be making them again. I think it would work very well with other fillings such as eggs or fruit.
