2/5/18 Update:
I made these yesterday for Super Bowl with store bought puff pastry instead of crescent roll.  DO IT!!!  Amazing!  Just few minor changes to the above recipe:
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Poke holes all over the puff pastry with a fork before rolling up the cocktail link
If you don't want to use Dijon mustard on the crescent roll/puff pastry, serve it on the side for dipping.
