Easy Ham & Cheddar Crescent Roll Sandwiches
- 1 tube crescent roll dough (8-count)
- 8 cheddar cheese slices
- 8+ deli meat slices
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried parsley (optional)
Simply roll out the crescent roll pieces and top each one with a slice of cheese and 1-2 pieces of ham (depending on the thickness), and roll them up beginning on the widest end.
Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush with melted garlic butter. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and cooked through.
I actually used about 4 tbsp of butter when I made these, but decided it was too much! You want just enough butter so that the dough is generously covered, but not so much that they are drowning in it.

- Any kind of deli meat and sliced cheese can be used. Mix it up and try different varieties each time! Pepperoni with mozzarella with a side of pizza dipping sauce is another good choice.
- If your meat slices are thin, I would recommend 2 slices for each roll.
