I was ‘fridge diving’ when I came across a tube of crescent roll dough. I had already forgotten why I had originally purchased it. For all I knew, I was probably going to make chicken salad crescent sandwiches. Well, it 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 dinner. These garlic-cheese crescent rolls are proof that it doesn’t take much to make plain into … well, not plain! These were the perfect rolls for to go along with my easy pasta dish, perfect for sopping up any sauce on the plate!
You can use any spices and cheese you desire. Whatever you think might go together best. 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 and Old Bay seasonings make for a totally interesting twists that pair well with shrimp dishes. Go crazy with it!
Impress everyone. Use a huge basting brush to brush these rolls. No point in messing around. Plus, it’s great for the grill!
Also try my chipotle garlic cheese bread.
