"I like to serve these to my children for after school snacks. They are also great as an appetizer. They are easily frozen and popped into the microwave for quick reheating."
Serving Size: 1 (29 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 20
"I've probably made 10 batches of these in the past month for various parties. We never have any left over to brink back home. I typically leave off the mustard and the sesame seeds. After trying several shredded cheeses (cheddar, swiss, velveeta), my family has determined that the sliced american cheese is their favorite, which is great for me because it is easier working with the sliced cheeses when rolling. I've also found that the rolls are much easier to slice if they are placed in the freezer for a few minutes. Each time I have made these I have attempted to slice them thinner and thinner so there will be more to go around, but it does take away from the ham and cheese flavor if they are sliced too thin. I would also suggest using a greased cookie sheet, the cheese really sticks to the pan."
"I doubled the recipe and froze them ahead for a party. They were delicous!! I pulled them out of the oven after 11 minutes to slightly undercook them, so that when I took them out of the freezer to reheat them they wouldn't be in danger of over cooking. Very popular with adults and kids alike."
"These came out great - the first batch stuck even though I sprayed the cookie sheet - with the second batch I used parchment paper and that solved the problem. Everyone keeps asking for these - they really are yummy !!!!"
"I've made these a couple of times over the last few weeks. Hubby devoured them, which was good because I was making them specifically for him. He doesn't normally like mustard on anything but thought it was nice added to these. I did not roll them in the sesame seeds, but only because I did not have any. Next time, I will pop them in the freezer to firm up the dough some before trying to cut them. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe. I'll definitely be making these again, probably for the many holiday parties coming up!"
"I gave this a four instead of a five star only because we did not like them at all when they were reheated from frozen. Right out of the oven they were GREAT, but when I thawed the extras nobody would eat them. I will make this again but won't be freezing any this time."
"These were a hit! I doubled the recipe and made the first batch exactly as posted. The second batch I used deli sliced chicken breast with hot pepper jack cheese and southwestern mustard. Both types were gobbled up at a tapas party and the recipe was requested all around. Lucky for us there were a handful left and they made a great lunch, heated in the microwave for about 15 seconds. These will be made again...and again in various combinations. Thanks again for sharing!"
"I can't believe I haven't posted a review yet. I've made these a few times and I've always doubled the recipe. Good thing because they disappear in no time. I serve them with different mustard sauces on the side. They are an excellent finger food for appetizers. Thank you."
"DH inhaled these for lunch (as a side to his bowl of soup). I used leftover spiral ham which probably made it a bit more difficult to prep, but didn't take away from the taste any. I prepared half with Swiss cheese/Grey Poupon, and the second half with sharp cheddar and regular mustard. Both were delicious and I look forward to experimenting more with different tastes. Thanks!"
"My kids are grubbing on this as I type! I didn't want to go with straight mustard so I did half mustard/half light mayo. It worked quite well. I used stone ground mustard and light crescent rolls, 2% sharp cheddar shreds and toasted sesame seeds. I am looking forward to playing with this super-flexible recipe some more! Thank you! Update: we are still loving this recipe! It's in the oven right now. Sorry you got a bad review because people can't READ! Too much cream cheese.....whatever!"
"These are good served with ranch or other type dipping sauce but can also stand alone by themselves as an appetizer. I didn't have deli ham so I pulsed the ham a few times in the food processor. Thanks for posting!"
"Excellent little appetizers. I whipped these together in no time. Made with the cheddar because that's what I had on hand. Still have another packages of rolls and ham so I will be picking up some swiss. Yum! I made them for a small gathering yesterday and they were gone in a flash. I should have read through the reviews because as already noted grease the cookie sheet to prevent sticking. Thanks for posting."
"Made these for a church function. I didn't have swiss, so ended up using mozzerella instead and used honey mustard. They were gone in a flash. I imagine they are even better hot."
"Cheap, easy, yummy and fun! Need I say more? Mine didn't stick to the pan but I used a non-stick cookie sheet. :0)"
"These were a big hit at a little tea party my girls had. I was worried about the mustard, since they aren't mustard eaters....but they gobbled them up. Will be making this again. Thanks for a simple, tasty finger food."
"These are so easy to make and are great little snacks. I used reduced fat crescent rolls and they worked fine. This is a great recipe especially when you need something quick. Thanks for sharing!"
"These were super easy to put together and cooked quickly. I sprinkled the sesame seeds on a cookie sheet and rolled the crescent rolls in them to pick them up. Then, I sliced the rolls into individual servings. It was a fast and easy way to get the sesame seeds to stay on. These tasted great and is a fast appetizer to put together."
"I'll add my 5 stars to the other great ratings. I used 4 oz of canned ham instead of the slices, and chopped it in the food processor. Other than that, i did everything else the same. Thanks for a new keeper."
"We really loved these! I used honey mustard, and doubled the recipe. I barely had enough left for my husband to take in his lunch the next day. My only note to myself was to buy name brand crescent rolls. I used the Wal-mart brand and the dough kept falling apart (and not always at the perforations... sometimes in the middle of the dough). I think the brand name might help with that."
"This went over gangbusters with the kids for dinner tonight, served with salad! I skipped the sesame seeds, as they're not a staple in our pantry. This will be repeated in our home! Thank you!"
