Need a bread idea for dinner tonight? How 'bout some cheesy garlic rolls? They're so easy and wonderfully delicious. Too bad it only makes eight. A double recipe would be twice as nice!
Here's what you need:
1 tube Pillsbury crescent rolls (8-ct)
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Shredded colby/jack cheese
Dried parsley flakes
Real bacon bits (optional)
A length of thread or dental floss, about 12" long
Preheat the oven to 375, then spread out some wax paper on the counter and then open the tube
of rolls and open them out flat. Next, brush the pieces with the melted butter.
Sprinkle a light layer of garlic powder and parsley flakes. Then top with the shredded cheese (not too much or you won't be able to roll them up later). I know it looks like the pieces are separated in the picture. They're not supposed to be, I should have actually lightly pressed the perforations together to make it easier to roll up afterward.
Now you can add a small sprinkling of bacon if you want.
Now roll up the bread again. Use your length of thread or dental floss (unflavored please, not mint) and slide underneath and up then cross the threads over (see picture below). Pull to cut through the bread to make a small pinwheel. It might be easier to get 8 equal pieces if you cut the whole roll in half, then cut both of those in half, then each of those in half to get eight pinwheels. I just eyeballed it and cut it as I went along the length of the roll.
Place on a greased cookie sheet or in a greased pan that is about 8x11" so there's room for them to expand.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Now GOBBLE THEM UP!
If you want these to be even easier to make, just use a sharp knife to slice through the perforations in the dough before adding the toppings so that you can roll up the individual triangles when you're done and place them on a greased cookie sheet for baking.
