  • Crescent Rolls – are uncooked, pre-made pasty dough portions sold by the can in the refrigerated dairy section.  
  • Deli Ham – Thinly sliced deli ham adds a savory and slightly salty flavor contrast. 
  • Cheddar Cheese – We prefer sharp cheddar, it’s creamy and melty with a mild and tangy finish. Pre-sliced cheese works best, but thin slices off a cheese block also work.
  • Unsalted Butter – melted
  • Garlic Powder and Dried Parsley

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • Mayonnaise – the creamy base.
  • Dijon Mustard – the tangy kick.
  • Honey – the sweet balance

Recipe FAQs

What is a crescent roll?

A crescent roll is a flaky pastry named for its shape and made from wheat flour, butter, baking powder, and salt. These pastry-style bread rolls, sold as uncooked pre-made dough, bake in minutes and are as tasty as they are convenient.

Can I freeze unbaked ham and cheese crescent roll-ups?

Yes, you can! Prepare crescent roll-up sandwiches with ham and cheese and freeze them in a single layer on parchment or wax paper until solid. Store them in an airtight container. When ready, bake rolls straight from the freezer for a few extra minutes.

What is the difference between a crescent roll and a croissant?

The ingredients and preparation are the main differences between a crescent roll and a croissant. Crescent rolls have flour, water, yeast, and a little fat for a soft bread-like texture.

Croissant dough has sugar and is saturated with butter, which is rolled and folded repeatedly to create the buttery, flaky layers that are the signature of a croissant.

Make Crescent Roll-Ups Vegetarian

  • Sautéed spinach, garlic, and onions with crumbled feta. 
  • Swiss cheese with sautéed mushrooms and a hint of thyme.
  • Roasted red peppers and goat cheese.
