Ingredients for Hawaiian Popper Crescent Rolls' cream cheese filling.

This is such a fun and easy recipe. The part that takes the most time, of course, is the deseeding of the jalapenos. A lot of folks think a jalapeno’s spicy heat comes from it’s seeds, but it really comes from the membrane that holds the seeds. So make sure you use plastic food prep gloves and remove those membranes with your knife too!

To make the prep portion of this recipe go more quickly, I also unwrap all the crescent rolls first, fill each with cream cheese, then the cocktail sausage. Assembly line style. Then, I roll each one up!

Washing Popper Crescent Rolls with olive oil and sprinkling with poppyseeds before baking.

A little olive oil and poppy seeds on the tops are just a fun way to finish these gems. The oil ensures the crescents turn a nice golden brown while baking and hold the poppy seeds in place.
