Happy new year!

Remember when I shared that insanely cheesy Garlic Crack Bread with all of you last month? Well, I have another recipe up my sleeve that will warm your heart and clog our lovely arteries with equally unapologetic fervor–the perfect way to start the new year in my book. Reader, please to make the acquaintance of these Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls! Trust me, this is going to be one fast friendship you won’t want to miss in 2016!

I don’t know about your holiday traditions, but the table at holiday dinners (especially this past Christmas) is always something of a battle zone in our family. The number of innovative chefs in our family is skyrocketing as our numbers continue to expand–thank goodness for food-savvy in-laws!–but this also means more jostling elbows and flying forks with which to wrangle when it comes to getting food on my plate. Fortunately, I’ve come up with a great system for winning our annual food fights, and it’s this…

Channeling my inner Katniss Everdeen. Muahahaha. May the brussel sprouts be ever in my favor!

A second (perhaps slightly less worrisome) alternative is to make all of the best food at home and consume as much of it as you’d like before bringing it over to share. That may or may not have been the case when it comes to these Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls. Shhh!

I first tried them at Thanksgiving, when one of my cousins brought out a tray as pre-dinner tasters. They’re exactly what they sound like: oozing, melty mozzarrella cheese wrapped in a warm blanket of crescent roll, butter, and garlic. How could I not recreate them on my own?

Fortunately, I was hosting an end-of-year holiday party for my friends a few weeks back at my place, which meant that I had a chance to flex my foodie muscles and test out my theory. Since my friend and I were making food for 18 in a single afternoon, speed was of the essence and my mind immediately flew to these cheesy rolls. After browsing a few different recipes, I decided to wing it (as one does) and go with my gut. A bit of garlic here, some melted butter there, rolling cheese, slather slather slather, and then…

Pardon my French, but holy hot damn…these were amazing!!

But then again, what did you expect from an appetizer called cheesy garlic crescent rolls anyway, right?

I felt like a true Asian cook by the end of the whole experience, because in retrospect I have no idea how much of what or when I put in wherever. Whoops? I recall there being a lot of throwing things around at random and my being all like “OH, this is goooood”….but I can see now why my mom and aunts can’t teach me how to cook now. If you’ve ever cooked in the kitchen with somebody who says “just put in enough salt” or “oh, about this much” without actually showing you how much they actually mean, you know exactly what I mean. And now I’m turning into that person. Shame on me.

So good though. Seriously. Make these if you can follow my approximations!

All you really need for this “recipe” are: two cans of prepackaged crescent roll dough, mozzarrella cheese sticks, butter, garlic, and a bit of dried basil if you have it. I’d stick with real butter, because butter comes in sticks (ha ha), but also because I recently converted to butter from margarine and oh MY. Excuse the tangent, but do you remember how you felt the first time you watched Interstellar?

Yeah, butter is basically as good as Christopher Nolan.

Prepare to have your taste buds blown–sending these rolls and my love to you and your families for the new year!

Cheesy Garlic Crescent Rolls for #SundaySupper

These cheesy garlic crescent rolls are perfectly flaky and incredibly easy to make using prepared refrigerated crescent roll dough! All you need to add is butter, garlic, dried basil, and mozzarrella cheese for the most raved-over holiday appetizer ever.


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 (8 oz.) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 8 mozzarrella cheese sticks, cut in half horizontally


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, garlic, and basil. Set aside.
  3. Separate your refrigerated crescent roll dough into triangles. Brush a generous amount of garlic butter mixture over the first triangle, then place a mozzarrella cheese stick half along the wide edge of it.
  4. Begin rolling the dough until you reach the smallest end. Fold in the sides of the dough so that the cheese stick is completely covered.
  5. Place crescent rolls two inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 9-11 minutes, until rolls turn golden. Serve while cheese is melty!
