Havarti and Mint Crescent Rolls

After tasting Havarti cheese from Arla Dofino, and using it in my Cheesy Breakfast Casserole, I’ve decided to create another light and delicious delight for breakfast. Havarti and Mint Crescent Rolls.

havarti and mint crescent served in a brown basket.

The mint and cheese combination was amazing! My family loved it, in fact, my sister was home when I was baking the rolls and she ended up taking some with her.

The rolls were soft, light, and the gooey Havarti cheese made it irresistible.

Now that you know the number of calories in each roll, you can indulge and not feel guilty about it.

These rolls are great with coffee or warm milk.
