Ham and Cheese Crescent Rolls

Most weeknights are full of soccer practice, cross country meets, church, and many school related events. This makes getting dinner on the table tough and eating as a family almost impossible! I started making these delicious hot ham and cheese rolls as a way to literally “grab and go” with dinner! They are easy to eat in the car if needed, filling, and delicious. My daughter even likes to whip these up for an afternoon snack on the weekends.

Do I have to make these with ham?

Absolutely not! Sometimes we make them with turkey or even deli sliced chicken. The same goes for the cheese. Sliced is great but shredded or grated works perfect too! Usually it is whatever we happen to have on hand in the deli drawer of our fridge 😉
