Quick Fixes

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Who doesn't love them? But sometimes... you can get a little sick of them. They're usually on sale so I've got a few "quick fix" recipes to spin these into something you'll barely recognize!

1. Garlic twists! Take the Crescent Rolls out of the tin and lay them out flat. Sprinkle the dough with garlic and onion powder (you dont want to coat these! Use 1 teaspoon of each and you should be good) Take a knife or a pizza cutter and cut the dough into long 1/2" thin strips. Take two strips and twist them together and lay on a sheet pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden brown.

2. Pigs in a Blanket, Mom style! My mom always made pigs in a blanket this way, so here's my take on it. Use cocktail sausages (all beef is best, but whatever works!). Roll the crescent rolls out on a flat surface and cut each "triangle" into three pieces. Wrap each cocktail sausage in one piece of crescent roll and set on a greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until crescent roll is light brown. Serve with yellow mustard - delish!
