Are you guys ready for the ultimate, WOW FACTOR cheese stuffed crescent rolls recipe…using canned crescents and string cheese?? Yes. Yes you are. Trust me on this one.
In case you missed it on Instagram, I'm off to Hawaii tomorrow! Can you believe it?! My dad is turning 60 so my family is meeting up for a big hurrah with him. It may be bad timing, seeing as how we are closing on a house the week we get back…but it's Hawaii! Packing our house can wait! Twist my arm!
Since I'm busy soaking up the sun, I enlisted the help of some fabulous guest posters this week. Last week we introduced you to Amanda from The Chunky Chef, who shared her TO DIE FOR slow cooker tomato basil soup recipe with us. Because she loves us, she's back today sharing her Cheese-Stuffed Crescent Rolls Recipe. Yeah. Cheese. Stuffed inside a crescent roll. I know, right?? This week we asked her to share the perfect side…cheese stuffed crescent rolls! These garlic and herb rolls take those canned crescents that we all know and love, and elevates them to a whole new level. You'll die at how easy they are. But don't take my word for it, take it away, Amanda!
Here's how you make these bad boys:
- 2 (8 oz) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
- 8 pieces of string cheese, halved across
- 4 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 tsp minced fresh parsley
- 1 tsp minced fresh basil
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine melted butter with Italian seasoning, garlic, parsley and basil.
- Unroll crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Brush with garlic butter mixture, reserving some to brush on tops of assembled rolls. Place halved string cheese at widest end, and roll up (tucking in the edges to seal).
- Brush tops with more garlic butter.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
And that's it!
Ohhhhhh so garlicky, so full of herb flavor, soooooo cheesy!! And very simple to make as well! When you roll the crescents, just roll them up like you would normally, tucking in the edges (don't want that cheesy goodness to all melt out!). I like to place mine on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and don't forget to brush with plenty of the butter mixture. These are a show-stopper for sure!!
