Ham Swiss Crescent Roll-Ups

The holidays are fast approaching. 

Holiday parties, get-together’s, family reunions, brunches, dinners… All the events seem to happen at once!

It’s one of the busiest times of year for many people because of all the extra commitments we have going on. However, stress is not on the guest list this year. So any recipe or RSVP that invites stress into this season is out. But let me just tell you, these Crescent Roll-Ups are gonna change the way you entertain this time of year.

Glazed ham, sharp swiss cheese, dijon mustard, and poppy seeds enveloped in flaky, buttery crescent rolls. Hold the phone because I think I just rocked your world. These are eerily similar to those legendary Ham Swiss Poppy Seed Hawaiian Rolls, but lighter and a bit more cost effective (Hawaiian Rolls are more expensive than generic brand crescent rolls). 

Serve them at brunch.
Serve them at dinner.
Serve them as an appetizer.
Serve them Christmas morning for breakfast. 

This is an extremely versatile dish that will have even the pickiest of eaters oohing and aahing. Don’t believe me? Well, that’s your loss. Adding these crescent roll-ups to my holiday repertoire ASAP, as should you. This recipe can very easily be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled to feed the gaggle of humans you may be hosting this holiday season.
