Seasoned Crescent Rolls

I tried a little experiment today and it worked out perfectly.  If it hadn't worked , you  would not be reading about it on my blog. LOL!

I have a 14 yr old who has a habit of eatting noodles out of a box mix and leaving behind the seasoning.  This is a frustrating habit, but today I figured out a great way to use those leftover seasonings.. 

This is the box  sans noodles that I found in the pantry.     The seasoning left behind was a packet of sun dried tomatoes,  a basil and cheese seasoning packet, and parm cheese.  There was also a packet of cheese sauce that I did not use for this recipe. 
I had a tube of crescents that I needed to use and thought they could taste interesting with the seasoning..  My first step was to add sun-dried tomatoes to half of the crescents.   

I only put them on half of the crescents because I knew of my family members would not be willing to try dried tomatoes.

I then added the basil and cheese seasoning packet and sprinkled some of the parm to all of the crescents. 

I rolled up the crescents and then brushed on some melted butter. I also sprinkled some more parm on top.   At this point my camera ran out of charge and I could not take a picture of the buttered crescents before putting them in the oven.  I followed the directions on the package and baked them at 375 for about 10 mins. 

They came out of the oven a golden brown with parm baked into the roll. 

This is what the inside of one of the crescents with sun dried tomatoes.  We loved the taste of  the seasoned crescents!  It would be pretty easy to duplicate this recipe without using a  box of Macaroni Grill.    You would just need sun-dried tomatoes,  dried basil, and parmesean for a similar outcome.    

Caught ya!  This is my daughter's hand reaching for seconds.  

Because of how much we enjoyed seasoned crescents, I am going to link them up to some wonderful linky party websites.  Make sure to check out my linky party page to check out all the great websites like Today's Creative .
