  • Place 1 mini sausage on each triangle dough and roll it up

Note – 2 containers of crescent rolls yield 48 skinny triangles. Most packages of cocktail franks have about 35 pieces. You have options! If you’re feeding a crowd, use 2 packages of cocktail franks and freeze any left over. Or only make 1 container of crescent rolls which will yield 24 pieces.

Step 6 – Bake until golden brown

Step 7 – Whisk mustard, brown sugar, whiskey, and Worcestershire Sauce until completely blended

Step 8 – Serve with Mustard Whiskey Sauce

What If I Don’t Have Crescent Dough?

You can use buttery puff pastry, pizza dough, or pie crust, just be aware that the baking time may need to be adjusted.


Can I Use An Egg Wash Instead Of Melted Butter?

Yes you can. Slightly whisk one room temperature large egg in a small bowl.

What Brand Of Whiskey Can I Use?

My favorite is Jack Daniels but you can use your favorite whiskey or bourbon.
