Ingredient Notes

  • Crescent Roll Dough: This dough makes for an easy, crunchy crust and adds to the savory flavoring of the dish.
  • Italian Seasoning: This seasoning is all purpose and contains herbs like oregano and basil. It adds to the overall flavor of the crescent roll wreaths.
  • Garlic Powder: Garlic powder is used in place of actual garlic because the real thing would make the texture of the wreaths lumpy.
  • Rosemary: This spice adds more flavor to a dish the longer it is baked. It provides crescent roll wreaths with a lovely taste and aroma.
