Here's a deliciously easy way to dress up a tube of crescent roll dough. These golden bites are one of our favorite recipes—and they're a nice addition to any buffet. We like them so much, I usually triple the recipe. —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. Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles. Sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons onions. Roll up each from the wide end; place on an ungreased foil-lined baking sheet. Curve ends down to form crescents.
  2. Beat the egg and water; brush over dough. Sprinkle with remaining onions. Bake at 400° until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.
