This quick fix is a great little snack.. party nosh or even a great side for a spaghetti supper....
I had Crescent Rolls to use... and some cheese I needed to use... and a recipe was born.. I hope you enjoy it!
I used 1 can and set the balls in a circle, not quite touching each other.. so they baked and expanded into a pretty ring.... I have a great non-stick baking sheet... so it was fairly easy to slide it off onto a plate...
If you don't have a really good non-stick baking sheet... you can also just place the balls on a baking sheet and after baking them.. arrange them on a plate.
These are great party snacks... if I'm making a lot of them.. I definitely would just bake them in a row ans serve them separately and not as a "pull-apart ring".
A little cheese goes a long way.. as you can see in the picture.. some cheese ran out during baking... ther was still plenty of cheese on the inside.. so no worries.
You could also cut up small pieces of thin sliced pepperoni and place them in the balls as well.
You could use biscuits instead of Crescent Roll dough.. but these are very light and flaky... just wonderful!
Don't worry about them looking a bit lumpy when you roll them.. they will bake out beautifully into these lovely buns.
Try it.. you'll love them!
Recipe: Super Easy Mozzarella Buns
All you need:
1 can Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Mozzarella cheese,cut into 8 1-inch squares
All you have to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Unroll the dough and separate into triangles as you would if you were making crescent rolls.
Place 1 piece of mozzarella on the wide end of hte triangle and roll up like you would a crescent roll. Now fold the ends inward and gently roll the crescent dough into a ball. Repeat with the remaining triangles.
Put the grated Parmesan cheese into a shallow bowl. Sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian Seasoning. Mix it together.
Take a pastry brush and brush the melted butter on a ball and then roll it in the Parmesan cheese mixture. Place it on the baking sheet. (See tips).
Repeat with the remaining balls. Lightly sprinkle them with some more Italian seasoning.
Bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
If you baked them in a circle.. carefully slide them onto a serving plate.. or just place them on a serving plate.
