I was ‘fridge diving’ when I came across a tube of crescent roll dough. I had already forgotten why I had originally purchased it. Well, didn’t matter because I knew then that with just a few more ingredients I could spruce them up to go with that night’s spaghetti. These garlic-cheese crescent rolls are proof that it doesn’t take much to make plain into … well, not plain!
You can use any spices and cheese you desire. You don’t have to make garlic-cheese crescent rolls exactly like the recipe. I like to substitute smoky chipotle powder for the spices for a nice southwestern, lightly spicy, variation. Creole seasoning and Old Bay make for a totally interesting twist that pair well with jambalaya or shrimp dishes. Go crazy with it!
Also try my chipotle garlic cheese bread.
