Tonight I want to share with you all a fabulous appetizer for the Super Bowl. (I am not cooking since no one in my family was home for dinner!  Eggs were the meal of choice here!) We call them "bones".  That doesn't sound so good, does it? Actually, they are Sausage Crescents. We call them bones because they kind of look like bones! They are without fail, the most popular hors d'oeuvre at any party.  And they are so easy!  The combination of ingredients totally works and this is truly a case where the sum of the parts is so much better then the individual ingredients! Try them! You won't be disappointed...

Sausage Crescents (Bones)

2 Packages Jones Precooked Sausages
2 Packages Crescent Rolls(I use the reduced fat, they have no trans fats)
2 tblsp butter melted
Parmesan Cheese(freshly grated)

Open can of crescent rolls, separate into rectangles.(do not divide into triangles) With rolling pin or fingers, press out perforations for triangles and leave as a rectangle.(you will have 4 per can)  Working with 1 rectangle at a time, brush with melted butter, sprinkle generously with oregano and parm cheese.
 Place sausage line on end of crescent roll and cover with crescent. Cut crescent to fit each sausage link. Repeat until all crescents are used.  Slice each link/crescent into 5 pieces and place on cookie sheet.

Freeze for 1 hour (or put right in oven) and then place in freezer bags until needed.  When ready to bake place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.  Not only do these taste delicious, they smell wonderful!!   

Now do you see why we call them bones?!! :)
