  • One 8-ounce package refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • 4 slices rosemary ham or your favorite ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • Cooking spray (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Gently separate the dough into 8 triangles. Using the crescent triangles as a pattern, cut the ham and cheese into similar triangular shapes. Place a piece of ham on the crescent dough and top with a slice of cheese. Roll each croissant starting from the widest edge to the tip of the triangle.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Place the triangles on the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 15 minutes. Eat warm, cold, or at room temperature.
