Those infamous crescent rolls at the dinner table…they evoke fond memories of meals with your family. Although they aren’t my favorite inclusion at the dinner table, the pre-made crescent rolls make an excellent base for some nifty creations. I like to take each triangle and roll them in seasonings and cheese, add a little bit of chopped garlic and onion inside, roll them into a ball, and bake! They become so light and moist…and it only takes a few minutes to prepare! In the words of my father, “how did you make these from scratch so fast?!” Make these rolls, your family will be impressed, and it’ll be our little secret ;)
1 tube of crescent rolls
1 ½ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese (grated)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
3-4 tablespoons mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced onion
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl, add the oregano, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
In another small bowl, add the minced garlic and onion. Mix to combine.
Open the container of crescent rolls. Taking one of the triangles, press in into the parmesan cheese mixture on both sides. Laying it flat in your hand, put some of the minced garlic/onion mixture on it. Then top with a big pinch of the mozzarella cheese. Bring the corners of the triangle together so it forms a mini pouch. Roll into a ball and place the ball into one of the mini muffin tin openings. Repeat for the rest of the triangles.
Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake until golden brown, about 13 minutes.
Remove the muffin tin from the oven and the little rolls should pop right out.
