Air fryer recipes are so easy to do and a healthy alternative if you want something still crispy without it being soaked up in oil. These air fryer mini crescent dogs by Pillsbury on YouTube only requires 2 ingredients to make and such a great snack for the kids and family. I didn’t realize how much I use my air fryer ever since they became more popular in the past few years. It saves me so much time in the kitchen because I wouldn’t have to turn on big oven. Also, it saves me electricity because it cooks so much faster in the air fryer too. Plus, using canned crescent rolls for anything speeds up the process of cooking instead of making the dough from scratch. The canned crescent rolls already have a natural buttery and savory taste so that’s why it I love using them. It’s honestly a cooking hack.
First, the 8-inch round of cooking parchment paper to place on the bottom of the air fryer. Unroll the crescent roll dough from the can and separate into 8 triangles. Cut each of the triangle into 3 more triangles. Then, place the sausage on the shortest side of each triangle and roll.
Next, set the air fryer to 325F and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the crescent tops are light brown. Flip on the other side and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Serve warm.
Overall, I would make these in a heartbeat because they are pigs in the blanket. They’re a good snack to make for game nights or midday snack. I think they are so cute and mini so they’re easy to eat with dipping sauce.
