These go together in a snap and offer up a “finger-licking good taste!”
2 (8 ounce)
cans refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
fully cooked cocktail smoked sausage links
red pepper, sweet or hot
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Separate each dough into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle lengthwise into thirds.
Place sausage on shortest side and roll to opposite points.
Bake on un-greased cookie sheet until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Using a potato peeler, gouge the end of each sausage to create a nail bed then, using a paring knife, cut a piece of the pepper into a fingernail shape and place in the bed of the sausage to create a human-looking finger tip.
Serve hot or cold with your favorite condiments.
Culinary Correspondent Laura Kurella's now decades-long journey into the world of food began after the sudden loss of her father who, though appearing healthy, fell dead into her arms when he was just 58 and she still a teen.
"His death taught me - the hard way - that something I thought innocuous – food – can kill you!"
Channeling her pain into a purpose, Laura learned to use her grief to help guide others toward food that benefits – not burdens – the body. "And, in the midst of doing so, I found my life's calling."
Today, Laura is a wife, mother, grandmother, journalist, author and speaker who uses her education in Natural Medicine to create food that makes us feel good.
Her recipes, food styling, photography and content appear in her award-winning newspaper column, Vitality Cuisine, and also in many other news outlets - including here, on the Food Channel.
"Looking back," she said, "I never thought that losing my dad would ever lead to a life that could help others. It is a blessing for something so uplifting to come from such a loss. I am very thankful to God for not only guiding me through that great loss but also for using it to lead me to a life that makes a positive difference in the lives of others – and also lets me live peacefully in a log cabin in the Northwoods!"
Laura is the 2018 recipient of the Michigan Press Association's award for Best Columnist. Her column also eared a Best Feature award from the Hoosier State Press Association in 2009.
