1 pound roll of hot breakfast sausage (as in mild or hot-hot)
1 (8 oz) package of softened cream cheese
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg, beaten
2 T. poppyseeds
Preheat oven to 350º.  Brown meat until it's finely crumbled and cooked.  Drain and put in bowl and mix in cream cheese until well-blended.  Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into rectangles, pressing together the center seam to seal.  Spoon sausage mixture down center of rectangle.  Starting at the long end of rectangle, roll into log pressing seams together when done.  Pinch ends shut.  Finish other rolls and brush all with egg.  Sprinkle poppyseeds lightly over tops and bake for 25 minutes or until deep golden brown.  Slice into one-inch pieces and serve hot!
