Cheesy-Stuffed Garlic Butter Crescents

IMG_0500I’m away on vay-cay-shee-on-nay at the Oregon coast. Holla! I love a good vacation….except when my baby doesn’t sleep. Then it’s just torture.

Nonetheless, I’m thoroughly enjoying my time away from the big cit-ay.

So last week I made these as a little afternoon snack and mama-mia were they good. Carbs and cheese, ya’ll! This is almost like a stuffed crust pizza minus the pizza part. With a whole lots of garlic butter involved too.

Basically, this is just a yummy situation that you want to be a part of. That is all. Enjoy your long weekend! Here’s how to make these Cheesy-Stuffed Garlic Bread Crescents.

  5. Um, did you just say the words ‘cheese’, ‘butter’ and ‘garlic’ in the same sentence? Yes please.

  7. These seem too easy to look so good. Can hardly wait to try them. I love your recipes. As others mentioned.. Loved garlic and cheese.

    Youaskedwhat wedidthis long weekend? I don’t qualify for a prize but here goes. My grandson went to pay football in Ireland. On Saturday we watched him and his team play called the Pride from an American military high school . This was the finals and my grandson’s team won despite the fact that they only practised American football 4 times. We went to a restaurant here in Winnipeg, MB which streamed the game on an 11 foot screen. Many parents and friends were there. Since most of the kids are new Canadians or quite poor, the parents could not join the boys. It was so exciting to actually be able to watch the game live..
    On Sunday we went to see a Winnipeg Goldeyes game. They played a Fargo , ND team. We lost, but it was a lovely day and the game was close. On Monday,we went to the airport to pickup th boys. I was interviewed for TV and was so emotional that I was crying with pride. Then we went to my daughter’s home and had pizza that my granddaughter and her husband had bought on the way home. It was a grand weekend.. Tomorrow my grandson starts school and we all return to reality. But the memories will keep me warm this winter… You know what the winters are like in Manitoba!

  8. I went to my 40th high school reunion in Aiken SC on Friday. I spent the rest of the long weekend helping my parents as they are 86 and 87 and need extra help right now since a recent illness for my wonderful dad. I have a hard copy that came to NY after I left for SC. I would always welcome an extra to share with my son.

  9. I decided to cook some special dinners for my family that i normally wouldn’t have time for. Grilled some beautiful ribeyes that were out of this world! Spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and spending time with my family. Sad the summer is over and the kids are returning to school, I always miss them like crazy even though they drive me nuts when there home all day LOL

  10. Uuum, I basically had a quiet weekend. My daughter and I went to lunch on sunday and did a little shopping. Moday was a very quiet day with my cooking me a hamburger (on the stove). Just too much trouble to open up my big grill just to cook one hamburger. I can’t wait to try the Cheesy-stuffed garlic butter crescents. I just happen to have everything in my refrigerator so i intend to try this recipe TODAY. I would be thrilled to win one of the cookbooks. Recipes are my hobby. I love to read them and try a lot of them. So, here’s hoping I am a winner. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  11. I went fabric shopping with my mom – always fun. Then to my brothers for a swim and bar-be-que. Wonderful. Warm enough to swim in Oregon is always a treat! Would have liked to watch the Roy Webster Labor Day Swim in Hood River but didn’t make it this year.

    • Yeah, Oregon water is chilly no matter where you go!!

  15. YUM! I tried this recipe out and posted it on Dinner Happy. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  16. Can you use regular mozzarella cheese for this? Just cut it into shape and hope for the same result? Possibly Monterey Jack would be good too!

    Reply
    • Just about any kind of cheese would work!

      Reply
  17. Oh So Yummy! What is the string cheese you used in this recipe? Mozzarella? White cheddar?
    Can’t wait to make this!
    Thanks!

    • Definitely sargento mozzarella string cheese. You can pick up a massive pack at Sam’s club- enough to cater a party!

  18. Yummmmmm

  19. The recipe calls for salted butter but the picture shows unsalted butter. Does it make a significant difference, and which should I actually use?

    Reply
    • No, it doesn’t make much difference at all.

  21. So followed the recipe, and they were well done on the outside and still raw on the inside 🙁 next time will put no butter inside!

  22. I put some pepperoni rounds on before the cheese, then rolled them up. My grandchildren loved them. Thanks for such a great recipe…..

  23. Going to try a variation of this with my Lasagna tonight! Thanks for the recipe!

  24. Made these last night with ravioli. Worked perfectly. Thank you Lauren. Consider this the “virtual” version of the hand wave in the rearview mirror. You didn’t let me into traffic, but you did lead me to a delicious dinner 🙂

  26. Hi, I don’t have cheese sticks, BUT I do have 8oz of mozzarella cheese… could I cut that into similar pieces like a cheese stick and it’d have the same effect?? (New cooker/Baker here) haha I’m making dinner tonight and just wondering! Thanks!

    Reply
    • I don’t see why not! Just make sure you tuck the cheese in nice and tight so it doesn’t leak out.

      Reply
  27. Since I found this post, I make these often….sometimes just for hubby and me! Delicious!

    Reply
  28. I tried this recipe, they are amazing! I’ll be making them again soon.

  29. These would be great even without the cheese. My husband likes is garlic bread without the cheese. So I will make half with and half without when we have pasta.

    Reply
  30. I make these all the time now since I first saw these on Pinterest a couple of months ago. I always double the recipe because they don’t last long in our house. Super easy, fast and delicious! I pretty much substitute these for garlic bread now anytime I make an Italian dish. Thank you for sharing!
