A tender dinner roll to compliment your lunch or dinner, Garlic French Bread Swirls are quick and easy. Using Pillsbury French Bread, which can be unrolled, you can add delicious flavors inside. Bold delicious flavors like green onions, garlic powder, and butter. Love that butter!
This super easy recipe makes the best tasting garlicy swirls. They’re perfect for mopping up sauces, gravy, or dipping into soups. Every dirty dinner plate should have one as a pre-wash cycle.
It really is an easy recipe. You mix up some ingredients in a bowl, unroll the French bread, spread the mixture, and re-roll the dough. Then all you have to do is cut it and bake them. Done.
And you have to admit, they’re pretty cute with the sprinkles of parsley and the little swirl going on.
But wait until you bite into one. There is buttery goodness with the oregano and garlic, plus parmesan cheese.
Making Garlic French Bread Swirls
You’ll need a muffin pan for this, one that holds 12 muffins. Grease each cup liberally then go to work on the French bread dough.
Once you’ve POPPED the French bread open, (that never gets old), unroll it. You have to look for where the end is, but it’s there. It should unroll to the shape of a square.
In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together. There’s fresh diced green onions and parsley, oregano and garlic powder, parmesan cheese, then melted butter. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water.
Pour the butter mixture onto the dough and spread it around, stopping just short of about 1/2″ from the edges.
Then re-roll the dough, pinching the edge to keep it rolled tight.
Cutting swirls from the dough log.
Now that you’ve rolled the dough back up, it should be in the shape of a log, or the same shape before you unrolled it. This recipe makes 12 dinner rolls, but rather than measuring, here’s what I did.
First, cut it in half. Now you have 6 and 6. Six swirls in both halves.
Next, cut those in half. So, now you have 4 sections that each have 3 swirls in it.
Now you have to eyeball it. Cut each section into 3 swirls and you will have 12 swirls total.
Each swirl goes into a greased muffin cup, and the muffin pan goes into the preheated oven set at 400° for about 12 minutes. They should be a light golden brown.
Remove them from the muffin pan so they don’t continue cooking and serve immediately.
What to serve with Garlic French Bread Swirls.
Serve with pretty much anything you have dinner rolls with, such as soups, salads, and anything with gravy. Above all, definitely serve with Italian food. Pasta smothered in sauce, in other words, is just waiting for a swirl to come along to help you mop up that dinner plate.
