  • 1/4 cup mustard

Instructions

Warm up your oven: First, heat your oven up to 375°F (190°C). Put parchment paper on a baking sheet or lightly grease it to keep things from sticking.

Get the dough ready: Take the crescent roll dough out of the can and roll it out on a clean surface. Cut the dough into triangles along the small holes.

To cut the dough, use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut each triangle into three smaller triangles. This will make dough pieces that are just the right size to wrap around the little sausages.

The sausages should be wrapped. Put a small sausage on the wide end of each triangle of dough and roll it up towards the narrow end. Make sure that the dough overlaps a little so that it stays wrapped while it bakes.

Place on baking sheet: Put each wrapped sausage on the baking sheet that has been prepared, leaving a little space between them so that they cook evenly.
