These two-ingredient cheese rolls are super easy to make. Bakers of any experience level will be able to make these and everyone will be asking for seconds.
The Best Cheese for Cheese Rolls
When making this appetizer you want a cheese that will easily melt. I used Velveeta slices, but you can use another type of cheese. Brie, mozzarella or even cheddar would also be good options if you are looking for a replacement.
Making these cheese rolls is as easy as stuffing cheese into ready-to-bake crescent rolls. You will only need two ingredients:
- Cheese: Choose your favorite cheese for these rolls. I used Velveeta, but you can choose a different cheese if you’d like.
- Dough: The dough is almost more important than the cheese. Pick up a roll of Pillsbury crescent rolls. These crescent rolls bake perfectly every time.
How to Make Cheese Rolls
Making these cheese rolls is so easy even the most inexperienced baker can make a whole plate.
Start by unrolling the crescent roll sheet completely and cutting out two rolls at a time so that they are still connected. Unwrap a piece of cheese and fold it in the middle of the rolls. Then fold the dough over the cheese square and once the dough is completely draped, press the edges of the dough lightly so that the edges seal. If the edges are not sealed securely, the cheese will leak out onto the baking sheet.
Place your rolls seam side down onto a baking sheet. Bake the rolls for 10 minutes at 375 degrees, or until the rolls are lightly golden brown. There should be a seam on top of the rolls where they will be able to perfectly peel apart when they are finished baking.
Rolls are best served right out of the oven. Serve as a side-dish or as an appetizer.
How to Reheat
Wondering how to reheat your rolls?
While these rolls are best straight out of the oven, sometimes they aren’t eaten all at once and you’re left with a couple leftover rolls.
You can store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days and then when you are ready to reheat, place on a baking sheet and reheat at 375 for a minute. You’ll want to the rolls to the oven just long enough to melt the cheese and recrisp the bread.
