Notes & Tips
Once you’ve prepared the sauce using butter, Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon mustard, make sure to evenly pour it over the roll-ups. It’s important not to miss any spots as each section contributes to the delicious added flavor.
If you desire additional flavors, feel free to incorporate sliced tomatoes, jalapenos, or even mild banana peppers onto the crescent roll sheets along with the ham and cheese. Customize the ingredients based on your personal preferences, aiming for the combination that you believe will complement these roll-ups the best.
Allow the roll-ups to cool for a few minutes before serving. They will be piping hot when you initially remove them from the oven, and you won’t want to burn your lips on the molten cheese. Exercise caution and let them cool slightly for a more enjoyable eating experience.
1 tube crescent dough sheet
20 – 22 slices Black Forest Ham thinly sliced
12 slices swiss cheese thinly sliced
1/2 cup butter melted
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray, or grease with butter.
Open the tube of crescent dough and unroll with the longest side of the dough at the bottom (rectangle). Pinch the seams closed and lightly press out the dough a bit thinner, approx. 10 x 13.
Lay 6 slices of swiss cheese on the dough, leaving a 1/4 inch margin at the edges.
Top with the ham (fold the slices over if needed) and then lay down the rest of the cheese slices on top of the ham.
Start rolling up the dough with the contents inside, starting with the longest side. Roll as tightly as possible. Pinch the ends closed.
Cut into 18 pieces.
Carefully put the rollups in the dish, evenly spaced, being sure to pinch any seams that may have separated.
In a bowl, mix together the butter, poppy seeds, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
Pour the sauce evenly over the rolls.
Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until browned.
Remove after cooking time and let cool slightly before removing from the dish.
