Cajun Pork Soutache

Perfect for supper or party food.


  • 1 pound Jimmie Dean sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 egg, beaten


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Brown sausage and drain.  Add onion, celery, bell pepper, garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

Add cream cheese, green onion, and Tony’s.  Stir until cream cheese is melted.  

Unroll crescent roll dough onto baking sheet.  Press seams together to form one large rectangle.  Cut 10 slits evenly on each side about 2” in length.  Spoon meat mixture down the center of the dough.  Starting at one end of the dough wrap it diagonally across the meat mixture.  Do the same thing with the corresponding slit on the other side.  Continue until you have “braided” all of the strips. 

Brush the dough with the beaten egg.  Bake for 20-23 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
