Garlic Parmesan Roll-Ups

Bread is one of my biggest loves and weaknesses.  The other night on my commute home from work (I have a lot of time to think) a thought entered my mind garlic butter and cheese in a cinnamon roll form.  I had to experiment with it and they turned out to be a huge hit!!
Garlic Cheese Roll-Ups

1 batch of pizza dough (you can find an easy and good recipe here.)
4 Tablespoons butter, divided
2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 -2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Roll you dough out in to a large rectangle.  Melt 2 Tablespoons butter with 1 teaspoon garlic.  Spread the garlic butter over the rectangle.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.  Roll up the long ends and cut into 1 about 1 inch pieces (dental floss works well to cut it.You can see an example here.)  Place on a greased cookie sheet.
Let rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
Melt the remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of garlic.
Brush the garlic butter over top of the rolls and return to the over for 2-5 more minutes or until they are lightly golden brown.

They smelled delicious baking and did not disappoint. My kids and coworkers loved them.

MMMMMM...I am craving them right now!
Enjoy!

It's Barbecue Season... Try out the Rib and Roast Rack from Cave Tools


A few weeks ago Cave Tools asked me if I wanted to try out their new Rib and Roast BBQ Rack,  I was excited when it arrived.  You know I'm a crazy foodie because I thought the stainless steel was beautiful!

 I decided to try something a little unconventional and see how it worked.
Here it is on the grill ready to go. Look at that nice smoke.
First we tried some chicken tenders (which I needed for a salad)
They turned our delicious, but were a little small for the spacing on the rack.  A full chicken breast would of been perfect.
Next we tried some steak.
It was pretty thick steak.  We were worried the stuff on the upper sides would not get cooked completely. We were shocked at how well it actually cooked.
Those little blackened ends had such great flavor. 
It worked well on our grill, but would be perfect in a smoker.
The Cave Tools rib and roast rack has:

  • Unique 2 in 1 Design Gets The Job Done Without Needing Multiple Tools - Great for Cooking Ribs, Roasts, Chickens, Turkeys, Hams and more!

It is a great product! Enjoy!!


I was given the rack by Cave Tools.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.
