French fried onions aren't just for green bean casserole. Sprinkle them onto crescent roll dough before rolling up and you'll end up with a crunchy treat inside flaky pastry. —Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1-1/3 cups french-fried onions, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Do not preheat air fryer. Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles. Sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons onions. Roll up each from the wide end. Curve ends down to form crescents.
  2. In batches, place crescents in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Beat egg and water; brush over dough. Sprinkle with remaining onions. Cook at 325° until golden brown, 7-8 minutes. Serve warm.
