It's post holiday season. You know what that means?
Leftover Crescent rolls to experiment with!
Every year for Thanksgiving I buy a few canisters. It's the only time I do as I can't be trusted around them. Let's just say I'd beat you in the How-Many-Crescent-Rolls-Can-You-Eat-In-One-Sitting game and leave it at that.
Anyway I made these on Saturday when I knew I'd have help eating them. My friend's daughter was coming over to babysit and I had to leave her something to eat. I totally forgot to ask her how she liked them, but with 3 missing I'm assuming her answer would be good.
I thought they were great!
I got the idea from a Pillsbury commercial I saw a few weeks ago. They rolled up a ham and cheese slice to make a quick dinner. I'm not sure I'd serve them to the family as a main course (they wouldn't eat them anyway,) but they'd be totally a fun finger food for a party or even a quick meal for friends.
They are also surprisingly light, weighing in at only 125 calories each. The problem for me is stopping at 1 or 2.
Here's how I made them…
- 1 package of Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls
- 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb Cheese
- About a cup of Baby Spinach Leaves
- 4 oz of thin sliced lean deli ham
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out the crescents and separate into the 8 triangles.
Now I used The Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb Cheese…
but any flavor would work great!
Spread ½ of a wedge on 1 triangle.
Top with a few leaves of spinach.
Lay 1-2 slices of folded ham (about ½ oz)
Then roll from the fat end of the triangle just like a regular crescent. Use the tip to "fasten" the roll closed on the bottom.
Bake for about 12 minutes (just a little longer than a plain crescent) until the top is golden brown.
I'm posting the nutritional information for 2 as a serving because I think that's realistic. You can always half if you are able to eat just 1, but I doubt it. 😉
