Stuffed Crescent Rolls Recipe

Try this cheesy, garlic twist on a classic roll!


  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 8 pieces string cheese
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp minced fresh basil


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with silicone mat or 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.


Made more than you can eat? Throw those rolls in a freezer ziplock bag, press out all the air and they are freezer ready! Don't have ziplock bags? Popping them in a freezer safe container with a lid also works! Mark the date with a sharpie and you’re all set. When you’re ready to eat, thaw in the fridge or microwave then reheat in the microwave or oven until the rolls are warm and the cheese is melted. Gobble these stuffed crescent rolls up within a month to keep them tasting their very best! Somehow we don’t see them lasting that long, though! 

And there you have it… the BEST stuffed crescent roll recipe ever! This recipe is seriously so easy, even your kids could make it! In fact… why don’t you go put your feet up and let them get to baking! 😉
