Ham and Havarti Croissants from Halfmysize.com


(I'll do the chocolate thing later....it's just what my cutsie calendar

(This is the first recipe to start off 2 weeks of sharing recipes from Halfmysize.com cookbook - they're all wondermous! and E.A.S.Y!

I JUST learned that Hungry Girl has a show on the Cooking Channel -
check her out!

YES!!!  and YES!!! again....

These are soo delicious - I can hardly wait to serve these to my adult children - they will love them too!

Simple and easy too, these would make a great appetizer or even an entree.
For breakfast too!

Something this tasty and only three ingredients???


I haven't ever used havarti cheese, and had planned to use the 2% 'fiesta blend' cheese that I had on hand, when I spied some pepper jack that worked very nicely for this quick dish instead. 

Crescent rolls are definitely my second favorite ingredient (with cream cheese in first place.)  How can you go wrong using them? 

I just LOVE them!!

This is what they looked like as I was making them...

I cut up the cheese into little strips so it would roll up easier.

Ready to bake...

I do hope you'll try them - we will be eating them again soon!
NO doubt about it!

If you want, you could add a little mustard before baking?
