I think we can all agree that garlic bread is really, really great. There’s just not a lot to argue with there – buttery garlic flavor with a little carb crunch… yum. So imagine you took those great things and combined them with the irresistibly soft doughiness of a crescent roll. Oh, and also the pull of some warm, melty cheese. Heaven, right? It’s all here in these Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls which take five ingredients and fifteen minutes of your time.
Now, I am happy to eat a crescent roll plain, but there’s so much fun stuff you can do with them. Case in point, these garlicky rolls. They’re buttery and cheesy in all the right ways and they’re so easy to make. They take mayyyybe five minutes of your time and the oven does the rest of the work.
You start by unrolling and separating the crescent dough and brushing each triangle with a tantalizing mixture of melted butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning…
… before topping each section of dough with a half stick of mozzarella string cheese.
Roll ’em up and brush them with more of the butter-garlic mixture and then they bake.
That oven time only takes ten minutes but it’s enough time to melt that mozzarella to maximum cheese pull status and for the garlic-herb butter to soak into the pillowy dough of the crescent roll. They’re the only dinner roll you’ll ever need.
