Sausage-Cheese Pastry "Nests"

Another lovely appetizer recipe from the kitchen of my dear friend. 

As with the dried plum roll-ups, use a can of refrigerated crescent roll dough (I believe puff-pastry dough would also work).  Cut each triangle of dough into half as shown above.

Use any fully-cooked sausage for this recipe and slick it into 1/2-inch rounds.  (We used Trader Joe's Turkey Kielbasa sausage.) Roll the dough around the sausage round.

Form a bit of a "nest" with the dough.

Then fill with shredded cheese (we used cheddar, but you can vary the cheese based on what you have and/or what goes best with the type of sausage you're using).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (we didn't...and we subsequently scrubbed this baking sheet for a very long time.)  Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese is melted and the dough is golden brown--approximately 12-15 minutes.

Serve warm.

(Again, I was simply a spectator of this recipe and didn't write down amounts and methods. But you'll need a can of crescent roll dough (or puff-pastry dough), a link of fully-cooked sausage, and shredded cheese.)
