Cheesey Garlic Crescent Rolls

Man oh man oh man!

I do...I do LOVE crescent rolls.  Dress them up with cheese and they're absolutely irresistible!

I'm wild about this simple recipe.  If you are having company and want to serve a special bread dish...this is it!! 

Add garlic powder and a few herbs to melted butter...spread over crescent rolls, wrapping a piece of cheese in the center of each...OHHHH MY!! 


And did you know crescent rolls come in packages of 4 as well as 8?  Makes it perfect for hubby and me just to enjoy the pkg. of 4.

I used 1 piece of string cheese, cutting it into 4 pieces for a half size portion. 

PERFECT!! 

These rolls take minutes to prepare...and won't take but minutes to be devoured either!

My friend Loy of Grandma Loy's Kitchen allowed me to share this recipe in my second cookbook, Love at First Bite.  

These are so easy and so tasty.  Enjoy every mouth-melting bite!
Guest-worthy!!


CHEESEY GARLIC CRESCENT ROLLS 

1 (8-count) tube refrigerated crescent rolls
3 Tb. butter
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
sprinkles of oregano or basil, optional
8 - 1/4" sticks cheese (string, cheddar, your choice) 
(I cut 1 string cheese into 4 pieces) 

Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheet with foil. Melt butter; add garlic powder and other spices, if using. Let stand for 10 minutes allowing flavors to blend. Brush each triangle liberally with melted garlic butter. Place a 'stick' of cheese along the large end of the triangle.  Roll triangle from large to small end, wrapping the cheese inside the dough.  Repeat with remaining dough.  Brush each roll with garlic butter.  Bake 12 - 14 minutes. Remove from oven and brush rolls with any remaining garlic butter. 

Yield: 8 rolls
