|A quick, yummy, easy dinner. Ham and cheese roll-ups|
You can use small diced up chunks of left over ham, or take some thinly sliced deli ham like I did here and cut it into thin ribbons. You don't want one big piece of ham, because after the first bite, you will pull the ham straight out of the crescent. Small pieces are the way to go here.
|Ham and cheese. Or is it, cheese and ham?|
|What's not to love about meat and cheese?|
We used the same plate as we went, so after a while, some of the shredded cheese rolled up into the outside of the crescent roll. It actually baked up nicely and gave some extra flavor to the roll-ups. Bake according to the package directions (I think 11-13 minutes) but I tend to add a few extra minutes to make sure they get nice and golden brown, a little over 15 minutes at 375º.
|Ham and cheese melty goodness|
Make a creamy mustard sauce for dipping or just eat them as is. This is a nice alternate take on a grilled cheese, or a plain ham and cheese sandwich, plus a great way to use up leftovers. You could also cut the crescents in half and whip up a batch of these as an appetizer at a party.

By the way, speaking of left overs, these make a great take along snack the next day. Either breakfast as you are running out the door, or stashed in a school lunch. They were just as tasty cold as they were hot. So there you have it, nothing earth shattering, just a quick, tasty meal the whole family enjoyed.
