Last week I made these Cheesy-Stuffed Garlic Butter Crescents as a little afternoon snack and mama-mia were they good. Carbs and cheese, ya’ll! This is almost like a stuffed crust pizza minus the pizza part.

This recipe is one of the ‘repeat offenders’ at my house because you use store bought crescent roll dough, cheese sticks and melted butter, spiked with fresh garlic and italian seasoning. So so simple to throw together that my 8 year old knows how to do this 99% on her own.

Delicious as a snack, great to throw into school lunches, the perfect accompaniment for a holiday dinner and obviously the ultimate cheesy garlic bread for your spaghetti or lasagna night.

Basically, it’s a yummy situation that you want to be a part of. That is all. Enjoy your long Thanksgiving weekend!

Below, I’m sharing some photos of the process (so simple!) but be sure to read through and print the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

    Crescent rolls are the best base for an easy meal. I’ll have to try your version. We love then with pepperoni wrapped up too ????

    These were so quick, easy and tasty! They were just the thing to accompany the soup I pulled out to the freezer for dinner on Thanksgiving Eve. My family was grateful to have warm cheesy rolls to go with a boring soup. 🙂

    I really enjoy your blog and can’t wait to make your snickerdoodles and cheesy crescents. Also, your family isn’t adorable!
