Cheesy Garlic Crescents

Cheesy Garlic Crescents ~ Buttery Crescents stuffed with cheese and brushed with garlic butter via

I’m not going to lie. These happened by accident. Total and complete, “Oh Crap I haven nothing to go with this Crock Pot Italian Sausage Spaghetti!”

I thought I was totally on top of things when I had the crock pot rockin’ and supper was going to be done and then I started thinking oh I should probably get some bread going to have as a side. So I went diggin’ in my freezer for my trustee bread sticks I always throw in when I’m in a pinch, but that’s right I grabbed the Sourdough ones and the hubs didn’t like ’em. Into the garbage they went. I wasn’t a big fan either.

Then the head went into the fridge and I saw crescent rolls. Oh you are a lifesaver Crescent Rolls. Then I started dreaming of butter and garlic because who doesn’t dream of that? That’s when I spied the string cheese. LIGHT BULB!

Crescent rolls brushed with butter and garlic, then stuff a piece of string cheese in the middle, roll em up and then butter the tops. Heaven. Genius. I’m so smart right? Now don’t tell me you have been doing this forever. Just let me bask in the moment for a bit ok?

Mmmmhmmm thanks.

Let’s just say when the sis-in-law came over and I said I wasn’t sure about these because it was a experiment, after one bite her eyes lit up and she said I could experiment anytime I wanted!

    I’ve never done it with string cheese in the middle, but this is definitely one of the best ways to serve crescent rolls! I usually add a bit of fresh grated parm right at the end 😉 I am so craving these right now! 🙂
