TIPS FOR MAKING SAUSAGE CRESCENT RING:

  • Use 1 to 2 jalapeños depending on how much heat you enjoy. Keep seeds for an additional kick. We prefer to dice 2 jalapeños, keeping only the seeds from just one of the jalapeños so we get more jalapeño flavor and less heat.
  • The egg wash topping is optional in this recipe but it really adds a beautiful golden color to the crescent ring.
  • If you are sensitive to fresh garlic, just use a generous teaspoon of garlic powder.

Lay a large piece of parchment paper on a large baking sheet. Place a bowl in the center. Open the cans of crescent dough and unroll the dough. Separate into sections of 2, the sections should consist of two triangle pieces forming the shape of a rectangle. Take each rectangle and place on opposite sides of the center bowl. Check to be sure each piece is touching the bottom of the bowl so the circle is equal. Scoop sausage mixture evenly surrounding the bowl.
