    KrisVonD's Note:

    These are Ham Crescent rolls with a melted cream cheese sauce inside. Yum. They stopped selling these in our area a few years ago. I made this recipe when I had some extra cheese and honey ham in the fridge. Got the idea from Pepperoni Crescent Pepperoni and Cheese Crescent Roll-ups. I also want to try these with Roast Beef slices, provolone cheese and maybe some horseradish/dijon or honey mustard. The possibilities are endless. Have fun with this recipe, add any combo you like... just watch the "browning". Also, if you wrap them a little different from the crescent shape, meaning roll the outer point of the dough towards one end of the roll it will look like a mini hot pocket. My kids loved these, and the pepperoni ones, too. Great recipe to get rid of leftover lunchmeat and cheeses. Just buy the crescents and bake!

      This is fast and easy to assemble and uses ingredients that are readily available. It makes a delicious and light meal. I made some as stated and also made some vegetarian by omitting the ham and adding black beans. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe Kris!

      Easy, tasty, filling and fatteningly (is that a word?) good! I can`t say if it tastes like Sara Lee`s but it is good. I skipped the butter. And used the cream cheese filling I made for my Fresh Figs Stuffed and Wrapped With Proscuitto and a mixture ham and turkey. For ease I place the cream cheese inside of the ham and turkey then I wrapped it in the Croissants so I didn't have to worry about moving quickly and it didn't get sticky! You have a great 1st recipe here at zaar!
