Updated October 10, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 24 cocktail-size smoked link sausages (from 14-oz package)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can or bottle (12 oz) Pilsner beer
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse (kosher or sea) salt
  • Yellow mustard, from a squeeze bottle

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle lengthwise into 3 narrow triangles. Place 1 sausage on shortest side of each triangle. Roll up, rolling to opposite point.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tablespoon of the beer with whisk until thoroughly blended; set aside.
  • 4
    In large microwavable bowl, microwave remaining beer uncovered on High 1 minute 45 seconds or until hot. Slowly add baking soda, stirring until baking soda is completely dissolved. Using metal tongs, dip each rolled crescent, one at a time, into beer and baking soda mixture. Remove, and place on cooling rack. Let stand at room temperature about 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Brush crescents with beer and egg mixture, and sprinkle with coarse salt. Carefully place on cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are deep golden brown. Cool 2 minutes. On each, squeeze 1 line of mustard crosswise and 3 lines lengthwise to make laces of football. Serve warm.

  • Adding baking soda to the beer helps transform the crescent into a pretzel.
  • Serve with your favorite cheese dip for a fun twist.
