Love those Pillsbury Appetizers! And this one is great as a side dish to a Lite-Bleu meal.

This is SO yummy! I changed it up a little bit. I had some leftover canadian bacon so I used that instead of ham. I wanted to make this recipe a main course rather than an appetizer, so I added another 4 ounces of cream cheese and mixed all the filling ingredients in the food processer. I cut it into 8 single pinwheels - and WOW! Perfection! I am taking some of these for a work lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing! :)

I made this recipe for the "Make It Healthier" tag game. I made it with lean cooked, reduced-sodium ham, light cream cheese and reduced-fat crescent dinner rolls. I also found 2% Swiss cheese slices in my grocery store and shredded that up to use in place of a fuller-fat Swiss cheese. I don't think you can tell a difference in the taste but it does make it healthier. These make a really great and quick snack or lunch. My sons enjoyed them a lot! Thanks for a great recipe!

These were wonderful! I made them for a Retirement Party for my dad and they disappeared! My husband came to me and asked if we could buy the ingredients for tomorrow and make them again! Everyone loved them. They were fairly simple to assemble, I did have difficulties slicing them though. So I just threw them in the fridge to solidify a bit and they were fine (make sure to use a knife with a serrated edge). Thanks for posting!
