Ingredients:

  • 1 puff pastry sheet (thawed if frozen)
  • 4 ham slices
  • 4 cheese slices (Swiss, cheddar, or preferred type)
  • 1 beaten egg (for egg wash)
  • Optional: Sesame seeds (for topping)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the puff pastry package. This step ensures the perfect bake for your crescent rolls.
  2. Roll Out the Pastry:
    On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry sheet. This creates a smooth canvas for assembling your delicious rolls.
  3. Create Triangles:
    Cut the rolled-out pastry into four triangles. This step sets the stage for stuffing each triangle with the flavorful ham and cheese filling.
  4. Layer Ham and Cheese:
    Place a slice of ham and a cheese slice on each triangle. The combination of ham and your preferred cheese adds a savory and gooey center to the rolls.
  5. Roll and Arrange:
    Starting wide and ending at the tip, roll up each triangle to form crescent shapes. Arrange the rolled croissants on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, ensuring the seam side is down.
  6. Egg Wash and Optional Topping:
    Brush the croissants with beaten egg for a beautiful golden color when baked. For an extra touch, sprinkle sesame seeds on top, adding a hint of nuttiness and crunch.
  7. Bake to Perfection:
    Bake in the preheated oven according to the puff pastry package instructions, typically 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them, and once they are golden and puffed, they’re ready.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    Allow the freshly baked ham and cheese crescent rolls to cool slightly before serving. The aroma alone will make it hard to resist, but patience pays off with a perfect bite.

Conclusion:
With minimal prep time and a short stint in the oven, these Savory Ham and Cheese Crescent Rolls are a fantastic addition to your culinary repertoire. Enjoy the delightful blend of ham and cheese encased in a flaky, golden pastry – a treat that’s sure to become a favorite in your household.
