These jalapeno crescent rolls are stuffed with sliced jalapeno peppers, roasted garlic, and lots of cheese. They are golden brown and crispy on the outside, and deliciously soft and savory on the inside, as you expect crescent rolls to be. These rolls have pretty much all of my favorite ingredients, so you just can’t go wrong with them. They are also great to bring to parties and get-togethers with your friends.
Whenever my jalapeno garden is brimming with ripe fruit, I know that it’s time for me to make these amazing jalapeno crescent rolls. This recipe calls for 4 jalapenos and it’s a great way for me to use up ripe fruit. My garden’s jalapenos are red, as jalapenos turn from green to red when they ripen on the plant. Aren’t they beautiful?
I don’t think that I’ve mentioned this before, but Mr. Savory Tooth is obsessed with crescent rolls. Like, PLAIN crescent rolls. With nothing else. I think that crescent rolls by themselves are okay, but just a little boring for me. So that’s why these humble crescent rolls got upgraded with some savory garlic, jalapenos, and cheese. It actually kind of reminds me of a jalapeno popper except that it isn’t fried and as crunchy.
Jalapeno, garlic, and cheese stuffed crescent rolls
- 8 Pillsbury crescent rolls
- 4 jalapeños sliced lengthwise with seeds removed (so you end up with 8 jalapeno boats)
- 8 garlic cloves sliced
- shredded cheese mozzarella, pepperjack, parmesan, and mixes all work well here
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Place the jalapeno boats insides-down on a small pan with olive oil, and place it over medium heat. Let it cook until the jalapeños soften and brown, about 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer the jalapeños to a plate.
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Unroll a dough triangle. Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese all over it. Place a jalapeño boat on the dough and 1 clove's worth of sliced garlic. Add more cheese (as much as you can fit!). Roll up the dough as tightly and compactly as possible. Repeat for the other 7 crescent rolls.
- Place the rolled-up crescent rolls on a baking tray, and place the pan into the oven. Let it bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and then serve immediately.
