  • 9 x 13 baking dish
  • skillet
  • tongs
  • Pizza Cutter
  • non-stick cooking surface
  • 1 tablespoon
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 1 lb sliced deli ham, chopped
  • 1 (8oz) block cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz swiss cheese, shredded
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 (8oz) cans refrigerated crescent dough (triangles)


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 TBS dijon mustard
  • 1/2 TBS worcestershire sauce
  • 1 TBS poppy seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place skillet over medium high heat and allow to get hot. Place chopped ham into hot skillet and let it get browned on one side. Turn ham over and crisp up other side.
    NOTE: It's important for the ham to release water and be drained. Excess water will cause the crescents to get to wet.
  • Drain excess water from ham and place cooked ham into a large mixing bowl. Mix in softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, green onions, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, black pepper, and 1 tsp worcestershire sauce until combined.
    NOTE: you can put bowl in microwave for 15 seconds or so to soften mixture, if needed.
  • Separate crescent roll dough into triangles on a non-stick work surface or cutting board. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise using a pizza cutter to form 2 thin triangles.
    NOTE: while working with one roll of dough, leave the other tube of dough in refrigerator until ready.
  • Place 1 TBS of ham mixture on the long end of triangle and roll up crescents from long end to the tip of crescent.
  • Place filled crescents into prepared baking dish close together. Prepare 2nd batch of crescents to fit into same baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together "Glaze" ingredients (melted butter, brown sugar, dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, and poppy seeds).
  • Pour glaze mixture all over the crescents, using a pastry brush to make sure they are all covered with glaze.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
