Ham and cheese roll ups

Ham and cheese roll ups are perfect using leftover ham or turkey! SO easy and just a few ingredients. Your kids will love them too!

ham and cheese roll upsI use this ham and cheese roll ups recipe all the time after a big holiday when I have leftover ham! Honestly it is something I threw together with what I had in the refrigerator one year (my kinda’ recipe), and it’s been used over and over again, especially after Easter and Christmas. The kids really love them because you can pick them up, and I love how easy they are to make. Let us know what you think!

This is perfect for leftover ham, or turkey for that matter. Choose any kind of cheese you like, I chose sharp cheddar here, a little mayo and your pkg. of crescent rolls are all you need. Swiss cheese is actually really great too like the way we made this great leftover ham recipe.

I don’t like leaving any food to waste and when it comes to ham it’s just too good to throw away.

You could easily use lunch meat too, just roll up a piece and use in place of the ham you see here.

Use 1 crescent roll on a non stick sprayed pan, put 1 piece of ham, cheese, a small bit of mayo and roll it up with the cheese on top. The cheese will ooze a bit and go on to the pan but seriously that is the BEST part for me.

If you allow them to cool once they are done the oozed cheese will harden just a bit and get crispy!! SO good!
