When it comes to holiday meal preparations, you can’t forget about the most important thing – the bread! These super easy and incredibly delicious Parmesan Rosemary Rolls look beautiful, and will be the hit of your celebrations, and no one will now just how easy they were to make!

Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Dinner Rolls

I’ve got several recipes on my site that use Pillsbury Crescents. They are definitely a staple in our home, especially during the busy holidays. There’s nothing like warm bread to compliment a meal, whether you eat them plain or dress them up like I did here with some fresh rosemary, fresh grated Parmesan cheese and sea salt.

Rosemary Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Instead of rolling them into a traditional crescent shape, I decided to make these pretty pinwheels. Baked up in a cast iron skillet these cheesy, savory rolls are pretty enough to go straight from the oven to the table and can be served right out of the skillet.

Parmesan Rosemary Dinner Rolls

To make these delicious rolls, I used two packages of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls that I purchased at Walmart. Depending on how you slice them, you can get about 16-18 rolls.

The dough is rolled out with the seems pressed together to form a sheet, and then sprinkled with freshly shredded Parmesan Cheese and fresh or dried rosemary and then rolled up and sliced. Dried Rosemary is fine, but don’t skimp on the Parmesan – get the block and grate it yourself. I promise you’ll notice a difference!

Melt some butter in the skillet and fit the rolls in snugly, then brush them with a little more butter and sprinkle on more cheese. Because, why not?

The result is tender, chewy and mouth-watering dinner rolls that will have your guests wondering how you had time to do anything else.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place skillet with 2 tablespoons of butter in the oven to melt.
  • Working with one tube at a time, roll out dough and press seams together to form a sheet. Sprinkle with ½ of the Parmesan and ½ of the rosemary. Feel free use more cheese if you want it extra cheesy.
  • Roll up the dough lengthwise and slice into approximately 1″ pieces. Repeat with the second tube of dough and remaining cheese and rosemary.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven and brush butter around the bottom and sides of the skillet. Arrange dough slices in the skillet (they will fit snugly). Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and brush over the top of the rolls. Sprinkle with extra cheese, rosemary and a pinch of kosher salt if desired.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bread is golden brown.
  • Cool slightly and serve right out of the skillet.


Because we are pinching the seams shut it’s perfect if you can find the crescent sheets. They aren’t always available in the store.

    Do you happen to have a video for this recipe. I’m super new to the cooking/baking world and I don’t quite understand the part where it says to press the seams together? Like where are the seams? Does that matter ? Can I just basically roll the dough out to a sheet?

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      Hi! When you roll out the crescent roll dough, you’ll see what I mean. It is a big rectangle of dough, but into triangles that aren’t fully cut through. Those are the seams.

  2. Rachel B says:

    Making them for a dinner party. Any suggestion on baking ahead of time and keeping them warm for the drive over? Thanks in advance

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      I don’t know how long your drive is, but I think you could wrap them in a kitchen towel in a bread basket and then just open the towel to serve them. They probably won’t stay warm though, because you don’t generally eat as soon as you arrive. Maybe the host will let you stick them in the oven for 5 minutes?

  3. Bianca J Sovich says:

    Girl, you are amazing. Thank you for sharing your talent! I’m going to use a couple of your delish sounding recipes for our Easter Dinner. Thanks again, Kristin.

    1. Kristin says:

      Thanks Bianca! Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Beth P. says:

    Hi Kristin- Can I bake the Parmesan rosemary dinner rolls in a cast-iron pan? if so would I adjust the oven temperature?

    1. Kristin says:

      Yes you can, and no adjusts would be needed. I’d brush the pan with a little melted butter first. Yum!

  5. Judy says:

    How many rolls does it make?

    1. Kristin says:

      It should make about 14-16 rolls.

  6. Cynthia Thompson says:

    Do you think I can make the dough/parm ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to bake?

    1. Kristin says:

      Probably…because it’s the canned dough, I can’t say for sure that would work.

  7. Carol Harlow says:

    I am making these delicious-looking rolls for my family’s Easter dinner. I used the crescent sheets, and they were very easy to use. They are all ready for the oven. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will be as tasty as they look. Bless you, Kristin, for sharing your talents.

  8. Lynn says:

    What could I bake them in if I don’t have cast skillet

    1. Kristin says:

      Any similar sized baking dish would work. Round 12″ or 13×9″

  9. cj brewer says:

    What size skillet?

    1. Kristin says:

      The one I used is a 10″ but a 12″ would work as well. The rolls would just be more spaced out.

  10. andi says:

    Have you tried the crescent sheets?

    1. Kristin says:

      I haven’t tried them for this recipe, but I have used them before. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find them in my stores.

    These look gorgeous (and delicious)! Thank you for sharing!
