The holidays are upon us. As is football season. Every weekend is filled with a gathering of family and friends. I have my staple appetizer go-to’s that I generally do not stray far from. But I have got a new one to add to that list.

These Ham & Swiss Rolls are simple and come together in no time at all. When they come out of the oven, it looks like you have fussed over them for hours. {No need to tell them you haven’t}

Bring this to your next gathering and everyone will be pleased. You set a dish of grainy mustard, honey mustard or a simple yellow mustard {Or all three! Let them pick!} beside these and they will fly off the platter.

They are so simple and tasty that I have put my thinking cap on to think of other flavor combos I could throw in this “roll” idea. Pizza sauce & mozzarella? Roast beef & bleu cheese dressing? Salsa cream cheese & refried beans? The options are endless.




2 – 8 oz. rolls crescent sheet dough

1 ½ cups deli ham, diced

2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded

2 Tb. green onions, sliced thin

Grainy mustard or honey mustard, for dipping


Preheat oven to 375˚.


Lay each sheet of crescent dough out on parchment paper. Press out to shape as even as possible. Sprinkle half of diced ham evenly over each sheet of dough. Follow with cheese, then green onions. Starting at one short end, roll up the dough tightly; pulling end up to seal the roll; lay seam side down. Slice each roll with about ¾ inch slices; laying each one on a large ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake for 18-20 minutes or until dough is golden brown. Serve immediately with your choice of mustard.


Makes 18-20 rolls.
