Recipe: Quickie garlic and herb crescent rolls

by Julie Snyder

crescent rollsHere's a perfect roll to serve with Thanksgiving dinner when you don't have the opportunity to Grandma's Refrigerator Rolls. Their subtle, comforting flavor goes well with the different flavors on the table. Their light texture doesn't fill you up like more dense breads and rolls can.

They're easy to make, and you can easily double the recipe. You won't even need to butter the rolls because they taste that great all by themselves!

Quickie garlic and herb crescent rolls

Prep time: 5 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes | Yield: 12 servings


• 1 pop-can crescent rolls
• 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
• 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic & herb no-salt seasoning
• 2 teaspoons finely chopped chives


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, seasoning, and chives. Blend well with fork or spoon.

Open the pop can. Unroll each crescent roll and lay it flat on a work surface. Spread about a teaspoon of the butter mixture over each of the triangles of dough. Starting from the bottom of the triangle, roll into a crescent. Place on cookie or baking sheet.

Repeat with each roll. Bake until nicely browned and cooked throughout, about 11-13 minutes.

Cook's note

If you don't have a garlic-herb seasoning salt, you can use 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt. For added flavor, sprinkle with a small amount of Parmesan cheese.
