Caesar Croissant Rolls

Friday 31 May 2019

One thing I always have in my refrigerator is a tin of refrigerated Croissant Roll Dough. Over here the leading brand is Easy Roll and I know in North America it is Pillsbury.  A bit of a cheat, but when you have a tin of those in the fridge a fresh and delicious bread to serve on the side with your meals is never far away! 

They are very convenient and easy to use, taste great, and you can do so much with them!   I just love trying out new ways to use them.  This is my latest experiment. 

Caesar Croissant Rolls.  Delicious and quick and easy!

The tin makes six rolls here in the UK, and I know it is more in North America.  Is it 8?  I can't remember.  It's been about 19 years since I have lived there!

I think the ones we have over here are a little bit more like real croissants, but no worries, they will be delicious no matter which ones you use! 

You only need a few ingredients, the main one being Caesar Salad Dressing.  I used Pizza Kitchen Caesar Salad Dressing because that is what I had to hand.  I do not recommend using a low fat dressing . . .

The regular dressing will give you a much better result and flavour.  I find that when they take the fat out of things, they put sugar in, so go for the full fat version.  I think sugar is much more worse for you than fat. 

It also used Garlic Italian Herb Seasoning . . . . 

This is the one I always buy and no . . .  I haven't been given any or paid to tell you so.  Its just what I like and what I use, and I use it a lot.  Sometimes I like to brush crackers with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle some of this on and bake.  Very moreish!

So anyways, you unroll the croissants and you brush them all over with some Caesar salad dressing and give them a sprinkle of the herb seasoning . . .  you don't need a lot.

The other thing you will need is Parmesan cheese.    

This is the one I buy.  I use it for cooking and things like this, but for everything else I like to grate my cheese fresh.   This works beautifully in things like these rolls however.

So you sprinkle that over the unrolled croissants also and then roll them up, from the wide end to the narrow tip.   I like to tuck in the ends a bit so nothing leaks out.  (Yes that is boxed macaroni and cheese  . . .  with tomatoes in it.)

Sometimes you just crave what you crave . . . and that is one of my favourite things.  Boxed mac and cheese with a tin of chopped tomatoes mixed into it.

Once you get them rolled up, just place them onto a baking paper lined baking sheet, brush with a bit more salad dressing, sprinkle on some of that garlic seasoning, and a bit of cheese and bake.  Bazinga!  Delicious hot rolls with hardly any work and served up pronto! Yum!

Caesar Croissant Rolls

Yield: 6 - 8 (depending on where you live)
A snappy little roll filled with flavour that goes well with salads, soups, etc.  Quick and easy to make and oh so tasty!


  • 1 tin of refrigerated Croissant dough
  • about 6 TBS of good quality Caesar salad dressing
  • 6 to 8 TBS grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for dusting
  • Garlic Italian seasoning spice mix


How to cook Caesar Croissant Rolls

  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4.  Line a baking tray with baking paper. 
  2. Crack open the croissant tin and separate the croissants.  Brush some Caesar Salad Dressing onto each croissant to cover.  Sprinkle with a bit of garlic seasoning and 1 TBS of the grated Parmesan cheese.  Roll up tightly from the wide end to the narrow end, tucking in the ends to seal.  Place onto the prepared baking sheet in a crescent shape.  Brush some salad dressing over top and lightly sprinkle with more Italian seasoning and cheese.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until puffed and golden brown, or according to the package directions.  Serve warm.

You can see how flaky the rolls over here are.  Really yummy.  So . . .  tell me, what naughty nasty thing do you crave when it comes to eating?  Do you secretly munch on Velveeta cheese?  Do you tuck into a tin of Beefaroni every now and then?  Do you binge on iced Pop Tarts (with or without sprinkles)? Do tell! I really want to know! 


  1. Great idea!!WE buy our cheese in bulk there too:)
