Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls

I just found this at Plain Chicken and having decided to fix Crescent Rolls for Thanksgiving this year, I am going to do half of them this way...it looks so good!
Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls - string cheese, butter, garlic seasoning and refrigerated crescent rolls - great with pasta or as an appetizer served with warm pasta sauce!

Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rollsCheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls - great with pasta or as a snack with warm spaghetti sauce
  • 4 pieces mozzarella string cheese (light is fine)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp garlic bread seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine melted butter and garlic bread seasoning. Set aside.

Separate crescent dough into 8 rolls. Cut string cheese in half.

Brush half of the butter on top of crescent rolls. Place one half of string cheese on the long end of each crescent roll. Roll up and place on baking sheet. Brush rolls with remaining butter.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until rolls are golden brown.
