Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a muffin pan with 12 holes with cooking spray. Set aside.
On your work surface, roll out your grand or regular crescent dough.
Make sure all of the seams are all gone. There should just be one large piece of dough.
Slice into 12 squares. Either 6 x 2 for grands and 4 x 3 for regular.
Place each square into each muffin hole.
Next, place some cooked sausage or bacon on top of each square inside each muffin cup.
