I made this as a quick lunch for the boys. I used swiss only because that was what I had on hand. My crescent rolls were also reduced fat. I made a homemade honey-mustard dressing to go with. They made quick work of these roll-up's--they were gone in less than ten minutes. Next time, I'll double the recipe.Read More
Even though I usually like junk food, these things were way too greasy and salty for me. They would be a fun breakfast for my kids (ages 10 and 15) - but I would feel bad about feeding them these things. They left grease all over my fingers and the plate and gave me heartburn. They tasted just OK.Read More

I just make one giant roll up to save on time, then cut it up.
Great recipe! They're perfect for a quick lunch or snack. I swear you could put just about anything in a Pillsbury Crescent Roll and it'll turn out great. I sometimes use Swiss cheese instead of Cheddar, but just about anything you have on hand will do in a pinch. My niece just loves these! She likes hers served with a side of ketchup and mustard for dipping....
This deserves 5 stars from a kid's point of view, but to add flavor, spread dough with a thin layer of your favorite mustard, or serve with honey-mustard dipping sauce.
I make these on sunday and put them in the fridge for breakfast during the week. They keep very well, are inexpensive to make especially when you compare them to the cost of a drive thru breakfast every day. Thanks for the great recipe!
These are great, so I am going to do pepperoni rolls with mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni tonight! then dip on pizza sauce

These disappear whether at home with my family or at parties. They are so fast and easy!
Very good. I love the ham and swiss crescent roll-ups, but don't always have swiss cheese on hand. This was a nice change! Thanks
I didn't think these were anything special...
Im giving these 3 stars because the cheese melted out and all over the cookie sheet, the edges of the ham started to burn also! I have now made these a few times and figured out a few tips, first use the sheet of crescent dough roll it works much better and just roll it up (looks like a huge stromboli). Second you can use swiss, American, provolone, or pepper Jack cheese! I have also changed it up and used Turkey and bacon or peperoni and crumbled sausage. We tried the ham with mustard and we didn't care for it. We dip the peperoni ones in pizza sauce. The last time I made these I made an egg wash and brushed the tops with that and sprinkled parsley on the tops! These are great as breakfast, lunch, dinner or a fast snack!
We like these. I did not find them to be too greasy at all. I cooked them on a stone which tends to absorb most of the moisture. Made these for New Years Eve and even my 5 year old liked them.
Fantastic.....used shredded cheddar since I didn't have sliced. Worked out just fine.
Very easy and good weekend snack for the kids... Will make this again!!
VERY Fast, VERY easy, taste great with a big glass of milk! Yum! (Best as a snack or part of a platter)
Super Easy ... Super Fast ... What a better combination for busy mom's with busy kids!!! The simple ingrediants to make this will be in my frig for sure!!
Love this. It was super easy and makes a great quick breakfast. I did add a few pieces of asparagus to the middle of each roll up to add some veggies. Worked perfectly and I can see adding broccoli in the future.
Made these with roll dough instead of crescent roll dough. My kids went crazy over these. It was a simple and easy dish.
tasty and fast when you do not have the time to make dinner this is the ticket ! we had mac/cheese from a box with it
These are so fast and easy! Great for lunch!
Company was coming for lunch and I'm not the greatest of cooks...oh the stress. I hate trying new recipes on company. My sister recommended this recipe. What a hit, they were delicious. Even my picky husband loved them and said they tasted like a warm deli sandwich. My son (who "hates" ham) ate a few of these too, but of course afterwards when he found out it was ham and requested his with "cheese only" next time. On a couple I spread a thin layer of plain yellow mustard on the inside of the crescent before baking and it was really good, but without it they were great as well. I served with a fruit salad, green onions, and potato chips. A great lunch with very, very little stress. I bought one original crescent roll and one garlic crescent roll, the original was fantastic, the garlic tasted really funky with the ham and was too salty, the garlic probably would have been ok with pepperoni though. They get done fast so I used the minimum baking time maybe a minute less. Thanks for the great recipe, they turned out perfect.
I found the crescent rolls to be way too rich tasting. Loaded with butter and salt it overpowered the flavor of the ham and cheese. I definitely will not be making these again. I should say that we tend to eat pretty healthy and don't ever really use butter so it very well could be we're not used to that flavor.
SO many different things you can go with these.
My son really enjoyed getting to help make these. We made some with swiss cheese and some with cheddar. Both are pretty tasty.
Easy to make and everyone loves them
These were good but nothing special. An easy snack or make with double cresents for dinner.
Great recipe!! My whole family loved them. It was very easy and fast to make. The only problem I had was the cheese melted and oozzed all over. They still tasted good. Next time I make this I will use less cheese.
Wonderful! These were easy and fast to make, with a really nice presentation. I made half with ham and dijon, half with ham and shredded mozzarella (we had no sliced cheese on hand). Both varieties turned out excellent. They were not too greasy at all. I probably used a bit less ham and cheese than the recipe called for. I would serve these to company, probably for breakfast or lunch instead of dinner though. Give it a try!
Wasn't to die for amazing, but very tasty and easy.
Ok for what it is. I have a recipe for ham and cheese on hawian rolls with a sweet glaze that are just as quick and taste much better. So I probably wont use this one again.
DELICIOUS! I used Havarti cheese instead of Cheddar because it was what I had in the fridge. I brushed the tops with melted butter and then sprinkled a little garlic powder on top. Baked them until golden brown. YUM-YUM-YUM!
These are a wintertime staple for us served with a nice hot cup of soup! My kids as well as my husband and I love them. Be careful not to put too much ham or the sometimes end up a little gooey inside.
Really good, and something I probably never would have come up with myself. Thanks for a great recipe!
I cooked these with leftover Easter ham, which is decidedly more difficult to "mold" into the desired shape to fit. I also used Monterey Jack cheese, as that was on hand. They were quite tasty and even good leftover the next day for breakfast. Thanks for sharing.
Great recipe, however, I would suggest doubling the cheese and ham, as I couldn't taste them anywhere near as much as the crescent rolls. Also, make sure NO cheese is showing and that there are NO thin sections of crescent as the cheese will end up outside of the crescent instead of inside.
This is a great alternative to frozen microwaved items. These are just as easy, and taste so much better!
I made these for lunch today, and my two year old son loved them! He ate two of them in about thirty seconds. My husband and I liked them pretty well too. I will have to try several different combinations to see how we like them the best. Will definitely make again since they were so easy and quick.
This is my usual standby for parties. I usually sprinkle it with Italian Seasoning and or Parmesan cheese.
eh, it was alright, I guess. It wasn't very good. not much flavor
Second attempt at these last night - the first time they seemed really greasy, but I thought there was potential. So this time I used about a tablespoon of shredded cheddar each, rather than sliced cheddar. They turned out so much better! Maybe it was the type of cheese, maybe not, but they were great. I made a double batch and the kids scarfed them up; served with tomato soup, it was a quick and delicious rainy fall night dinner.
I did half with processed cheese (singles) and 1/2 with regular swiss cheese....definitely will be making them all with swiss cheese next time (don't use processed cheese--waaaay to salty!)....5 stars. Delicious and quick and very easy!! Yum!
Next time I will try putting some dijon mustard on it too
these were perfect and easy! i followed the recipe but you could change the cheese and meat with about any combo you like...perfect lazy breakfast or brunch. will make again
Easy, simple, and tasty enough. Good for a busy weeknight.
The good thing about this recipe is its versatility. I used turkey lunchmeat and some shredded cheese I had in the frig. It was the perfect lunch for my 2-yr-old grandson and me.
I liked these but I DID tweak them. I rolled the dough just enough to make it into 1 larger Roll-Up. I then spread a layer of Pizza sauce,topped with ham,pepperoni,cheese,slivered green peppers and sliced black olives. Followed rest of recipe-just had 1 longer loaf. Oh, I also topped it with Herbs de Provence and Garlic Powder. Everyone loved it. So, I DID change it but it would have been yummy without all of the added stuff,too. I just got carried away!LOL
My husband and 2 year-old daughter loved them. A quick and easy dinner idea. We had it with coleslaw and apple-cinnamon apples.
These were super yummy!.. I think I had something similar with hot dogs once but these were so much better! I buy all natural ham and dried off the moisture between paper towels. For the cheese I had some colby/Jack and sliced it thin. My whole family loved them. I did end up making another whole batch since they were smaller than I had thought and my guys have big appetites. :)
Our family loves this quick meal! This is super easy to modify for individual tastes. For a yummy alternative, try Pimento Cheese in place of the Cheddar. Mmm...
I make one giant loaf by placing dough onto foil, pinch the triangle seams into a rectangle, fill the center leaving seams, fold and braid. I have been doing these for along time and its one of those yummy, QUICK meals with no leftovers.
Nice and quick for a weeknight dinner...I felt just a bit guilty serving them, as they are quite greasy and salty...big green salad makes a good accompaniment!
I sprinkle some parley on top before baking to make them look pretty. I roll them up and cut them to make little appetizers - I have been doing this for years and let me tell you, every time I go somewhere and ask what I can bring, this is it! Now I don't even ask, I just bring these with some other treat (I always feel guilty bringing only these because they are soooo easy its like cheating) and its always a hit. it's the easiest thing to make and I've never met anyone who doesn't like them.
Eh. These were boring and very greasy. Even my 2 year old decided they weren't worth eating.
Can't you put just about anything inside a Crescent Roll? You are only limited by your imagination! This was a tasty, little nugget, very easy to prepare and quickly gone from the platter. I served it with a crisp carrot salad. It would also make a great accompaniment to tomato soup. I only knocked it down a star because it was a bit on the salty side.
whole family enjoyed these.
thanks for sharing, this is a nice change from the everyday sandwich, the youngins loved them, i have also put a slice of tomato on top of them after they are done, i have also put garlic and onion in the rolls, all have been good!!
Simply Delicious. That's all that needs to be said about these!
Easy lunch/meal for kids. Just add a fruit or veggie on the side. I've made these twice using ham & american cheese and ham & cheddar cheese. These are very versatile since you could use any meat/cheese combination you wanted. Cook on one of the top racks of your oven or the bottoms will get burned. Also go light on the cheese or it will melt out of the crescents and make a mess on your baking sheet.
Great idea, but by following the directions you have a very doughy inside even though the crust is more than done on the outside.
These are so delicious! A quick, easy treat. I served with yellow mustard on the side. Would be great with a brown or spicy mustard. Will definitely make again.
I have done this many times before and I love them. What I do is I sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top of the ham instead of using sliced cheese, and I make a sauce using a can of cheddar cheese soup and milk. The sauce is great for pouring over the rolls and some steamed broccoli. My boyfriend was actually the one who introduced this recipe to me-his mom showed him. It's a great easy dinner for college kids or anyone.
These were very good. Next time we will cut the amount of cheese in half or just add another slice of ham to each roll. Either way, a little to much cheese. Oh! Best idea ever, just add a piece of bacon and leave everything else the same! Everything is better with bacon!
these were good & simple...but how do you get the dough completely cooked without the cheese starting to melt out??
These were super easy and pretty tasty. They aren't necessarily something to write home about, but my boyfriend loved them and I enjoyed them too. Great if you are looking for something quick and easy.
easy and good.
I love this recipe. My family loves them and my picky 3-year old will eat several of these at a time. So fast & easy!
Quick and easy. My kids (5 & 7) loved them.
Made these for lunch with a girlfriend and they were fantastic.. Didn't look pretty but when they taste like this who cares.
These are so quick and easy and so yummy. I make them all the time, and my family loves them. I make them for a quick weekend lunch. I also switch up the meat and cheese with what I have on hand, deli sliced turkey meat is good too.
Very greasy-oily. Made 3 with swiss cheese, 3 with cheddar and 2 with American cheese - all too greasy to eat.
A good finger food for football, as well as other parties. Quick and easy and very tasty.
These were good but I suggest more meat and cheese in each one. Kiddos LOVED this!
We make these a lot, usually as a late night snack, or instead of sandwiches for lunch. Sometimes the cheese doesn't stay in so well, so for a cheesier roll up, make a long roll by sealing all the edges into a single sheet, place ham and extra cheese along one side, roll up as a single log, seal the ends, and cut into pieces after baking. It usually needs an extra couple of minutes in the oven this way.
This wasn't greasy at all, I used Sara Lee deli ham and Swiss cheese with a little bit of mustard spread on the dough and it was great! Be prepared to make more than one tube though, they go very fast!
Great quick weeknight supper. Kids and husband liked it. Will get added to the rotation.
My son and I had these for lunch and they were delicious! I didn't have enough ham so I ended up doing half of the crescents with ham and the other half with turkey. They were very good dipped in honey mustard!
Made with swiss. Everyone loved them. Easy and kid friendly.
Eh, so so.
Okay, I admit I am not one to pick up crescents at the store as I love to bake. However, I was doing a youth party before and needed a bunch of hot and cold quick appetizers. I did a turkey and cheese version of these and they tasted great. Someone commented on the saltiness on here. Try the turkey deli meat instead, it comes in low sodium and it turns out well.
My mother in law would always make these for showers or parties except she would spread a little bit of yellow mustard on the dough before adding the ham and cheese. Then after they cooled she would cut them into pinwheel type things. Awesome!
I made these for dinner, and they were a hit. I did not at all find them to be greasy, but I may have ended up with slightly less cheese since I used shredded cheese and didn't want to make a mess. I also use the cheese made with 2% milk. These are easy to dip in sauce if you prefer extra flavor. I love to have a couple easy dinners a week, and this is a keeper. The recipe is very versatile as you can get creative with what you roll up with the crescents. I've made the Crescent Pizza Pockets recipe quite a few times, but I prefer the idea of rolling things up, it seems to work better for me. Next week I am going to try the Pulled Chicken Crescents recipe.
So quick and easy, I used Swiss Cheese instead of Cheddar with a ranch dipping sauce.
I doubled the recipe because we were having these for dinner with soup on the side. We all liked them quite a bit, but I felt they needed a little "something", so I dipped mine in mustard. They were a little difficult to roll up with the sliced cheddar cheese, so I think next time I'll try using shredded cheese instead. I think they'd also be phenomenal brushed with a little garlic butter as soon as they come put of the oven.
I made these with a pot of baked potato soup, what a nice compliment!!! I used Cooper Sharp white cheddar cheese and chipped Tavern Ham in the Cresents, what a nice Sunday dinner!!!
Yummy. My kids adored these, as did I. These will be my new need a meal quick go to food! I will experiment with different fillings just for fun, but really, they are perfect as is.
Very simple recipe, easy to customize with great results. Has anyone tried freezing them? I think this would make a nice, hot lunch if I could make a few and then freeze a couple to save for later...
I really enjoyed this recipe because it was so easy and SO good! I highly reccommend this for anyone who wants a quick, simple lunch that is extremely tasty!
Some evenings beg for a simple snacky-type supper. When our family is running in several directions at once, you need a few recipes to pull out and this is one of them. My daughter was in charge of supper last night and made these easily. With only 3 ingredients, it's a cinch to keep them on hand all the time.
My husband loves this kind of treat! I accidently got the small crescents though and will get the large ones next time.
I make these extra-special by adding a couple of asparagus spears. The ends of the spears get all "frizzled" in the oven, which makes them really yummy. You could also add a teeny bit of mustard if you like.
kids liked it, i added turkey
Kids really liked this. I tried half with cheddar cheese and half with swiss. Both great, you could really do any combo of meats/cheese you wish. Also used reduced fat crescents. Would be a nice side to soup.
too salty and buttery. doesnt work great with crescents, it would be better with rolls
Very quick and easy recipe. My kids gobbled them up but I thought they needed a little something. We served with honey mustard.
Easy & Yummy!
Easy, yummy and versatile!
These are a big hit with my hubby and daughter-they like them with a little honey mustard in them. I'm not a huge fun-they're really salty IMHO. So 2 out of 3 yum votes at our house.
