Ham and Cheese Crescent


This recipe makes a delicious breakfast/brunch entree. With the addition of a green salad, you have a quick and filling dinner. Lowered fat and fat-free ingredients can be substituted with equally pleasing results.

1 tube (8 ounce) refrigerated crescent roll dough
2 tablespoons honey mustard
¼ pound smoked ham or turkey ham, chopped
½ cup broccoli florets, small pieces (lightly steamed, if desired)
2 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
4 orange slices - cut and twist for garnish

Unroll dough onto ungreased baking sheet; pinching perforations together. Spread honey mustard lengthwise down center third of dough. Place ham and broccoli on top of mustard, top with cheese.

With sharp knife, make diagonal cuts to each side of the dough (approximately 1-1½ inches apart). Crisscross dough over ham and cheese filling, sealing ends by pinching dough together.

Bake in preheated 350° oven 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to serving platter, garnish with orange slices. Serves: 2
