Don't Call It A Recipe, Just Call It Delicious

I really admire food bloggers who can look in their fridge or pantry and come up with a fabulous, unique, delicious recipe on the fly. I am not one of those people. In fact, I am almost embarrassed to call this a "recipe" at all!

I made these a few days ago when I was messing around before heading to a pal's for dinner. I didn't want to show up empty handed, but I didn't want to go to the market to buy anything, either. So I rummaged through the fridge and came up with the following:


A can of crescent rolls. Shredded mozzarella cheese. And jarred minced garlic.

I could work with that! So here's what I did...

First I rolled out the crescent rolls on an ungreased baking sheet - eight total. I microwaved about two tablespoons of butter til it was melty and lightly drizzled it over each triangle of dough. Then I spooned a bit of garlic over each triangle and used the back of the spoon to cover it fully. I seasoned each triangle with fresh ground pepper and salt and then sprinkled half of them with the shredded cheese - I couldn't decide which would taste better, plain garlic or garlic/cheese, so I made both!


Per the instructions on the crescent roll tin, I baked them at 350 for 12 minutes - they came out hot and bubbling, and my apartment immediately smelled amazing! Mmmmmm.


Important note: I used jarred garlic because that's what I had and I was lazy, but if you can, I urge you to use fresh garlic and chop it yourself. I am not a huge fan of jarred garlic - I think it tastes metallic sometimes - but fresh garlic in this would be phenomenal! I'll use fresh next time for sure.


That's it, really! Nothing groundbreaking but I thought I'd share anyway :) I love crescent rolls beause they are so versatile (remember when I made chocolate/peanut butter rolls?) Let me know if you make them!
