Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups - 52 Appetizers and Holiday Leftovers Ideas

Pin It Now!

WOW oh WOW do I love these little gems.

It is basically a Ham and Cheese sandwich, but the secret is a Worcestershire Mustard sauce that gets baked into the mix, making these loaded with flavor!

Think Cinnamon Rolls but with a savory Meat and cheese spin.  And like cinnamon rolls, the real treat is the sauce.

You can easily make this with lunch meat.  I always take a look at the deli counter to see what's on sale.  $2 worth of Honey Ham or a Cajun spiced thin sliced turkey and this works.

Over Christmas and Thanksgiving this year I made a Pistachio Mustard crusted Ham (with just enough Bourbon to strike a blow for Liberty).. .

With just a couple of slices left, I thin Julian style sliced them up to make this.  Stretched those last couple of slices into something memorable.

Like I said, I do so Love these!


 OK... Here's what I did...

Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups

  • 1 Tube Crescent Roll Sheets
  • 1/2 Pound Ham, thinly sliced (Lunch meat slices work fine)
  • 1/4 pound Swiss Cheese, grated
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, melted
  • FOR THE SAUCE - 2 TBS Course grain Country style Mustard (with the visible seeds)
  • 1 TBS Dried Minced Onion
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Poppy Seeds
Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and prepare  a square 9X9 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out your crescent dough and and press into an approximately 12x18 inch rectangle. Top with ham and cheese.
  3. Starting on the wide side, roll the dough up loosely (the dough will expand as it cooks. Place with the seam facing down. Cut into 12 pieces.
  4. Arrange your roll-ups in your baking dish, evenly spaced.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the butter, poppy seeds, mustard, onion, and Worcestershire sauce.  Drizzle the sauce over the roll-ups.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes until lightly browned.
  7. Serve Warm and ENJOY!
