Stuffed Crescent Rolls Ingredients:

  • Can Crescent Rolls– crescent rolls are a pre-made pastry dough similar to a dense croissant. They can usually be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store near the cinnamon rolls, and come in a tube shape can.
  • Mozzarella String Cheese– string cheese melts very well but also helps hold the shape of the dinner rolls and makes rolling them way easier!
  • Butter– salted or unsalted can be used.
  • Finely Minced Garlic
  • Italian Seasoning-a blend of basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, and garlic powder. It can be found premixed in the spice section of most grocery stores.
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese

Substitutions & Variations:

  • Try Pizza Rolls, for a fun twist. Simply add a bit of marinara sauce and pepperoni slices.
  • Try adding a layer of different cheeses! Before adding the string cheese, add a sprinkle of shredded cheese such a cheddar, gouda, or pepper jack.

How to Make Stuffed Crescent Rolls:

  • Prepare Crescent Rolls– Preheat oven to 375F. Unroll crescent roll dough and cut along the pre-made seams so that you have 8 triangles. In a microwave or small saucepan, melt butter. Stir minced garlic & Italian seasoning into melted butter. Using a basting brush, brush unrolled crescent dough with a light layer of butter mixture. (Leave some butter for the tops!)

  • Add Cheese & Roll– Cut each string cheese in half width-wise so you have 8 pieces. Place one piece of cheese at the large end of a crescent dough, fold edges over cheese, and roll (like you would a burrito). Pinch the corners closed. Repeat this process with remaining cheese and dough.

  • Butter & Bake– Place crescent rolls seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush the tops with a layer of butter. Bake 12-16 minutes until golden brown. Brush the tops with a bit more garlic butter and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.
