When we were growing up, our mom always made rolls on Sundays to serve with Sunday dinner. I don’t think that there is anything better than warm bread to go with any meal!
I love making our homemade 30 Minute Dinner Rolls, but let’s be honest . . . sometimes you don’t even have 30 minutes to spare! Which is where these little Parmesan Crescent Roll-Ups come in handy!
The shortcut that makes these rolls so easy is that you use a package of refrigerated crescent roll dough. But instead of rolling them up in the traditional way, I rolled them up more like a cinnamon roll.
Ingredients needed for Parmesan Crescent Rolls
- 1 tube refrigerated crescent dough
- 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- Garlic powder, oregano, and thyme to taste
How to make Parmesan Crescent Rolls
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Pour half of the melted butter into the bottom of a 8×8″ baking pan.
- Roll out the tube of dough and pinch all the seams together so that you have one sheet of dough (sometimes you can also buy a sheet of crescent dough – if your store has this available, I would totally recommend it!).
- Sprinkle half of the Parmesan cheese all over the dough. Lightly sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, and thyme on the dough as desired.
- Roll up the dough length-wise (like a long, skinny tube) and using a sharp knife, carefully slice the dough into 1″ pieces. You should get 8-9 pieces.
- Place the dough slices into the prepared pan. Using a basting brush, brush remaining butter on top of rolls. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese on top of rolls as well (I used a little bigger pan than 8×8″ – if your rolls are touching before they bake, it’s totally fine).
- Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the tops of the rolls start to turn golden.
What kind of Parmesan cheese should I use?
For this recipe, I recommend using freshly shredded Parmesan cheese – I like to buy it from the deli at the grocery store and shred it myself.
You can buy pre-shredded Parmesan cheese and use it in this recipe, but I feel that the pre-shredded cheese doesn’t melt as nice as freshly shredded cheese does.
If you want, you could also use the powdered grated Parmesan cheese. It will have a completely different flavor and texture, but I think that it would still be delicious! If you try it, leave a comment below and let us know!
