"Lightened" Ham & Swiss Rollups



This is a very simple recipe to make as an appetizer or even as an entree. These tender 'pockets' of YUM are perfect for on the go eating. 

I normally have all these ingredients on hand, and when I found the recipe in a magazine (Quick Cooking) and had Laughing Cow reduced-fat swiss cheese spread on hand, I decided to use that instead of the regular cheese. 

I also used reduced-fat crescent rolls, but hubby never guessed.  I am confident I would serve these to guests and they wouldn't have a clue they were eating a 'lightnened' recipe. 

Just 5 ingredients - a little bit of time making and then baking, and you're set to roll...so to speak.  (teehee)

Use your favorite meat and cheese to make them your own!


'LIGHTENED' HAM & SWISS ROLLUPS

1 - 8 ozs tube (reduced-fat) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 c. diced fully cooked ham
(or 99% fat free deli slices)
3/4 c. finely shredded swiss cheese
(or 4 wedges Laughing Cow swiss cheese spread)
1-1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. finely chopped onion

Preheat oven to 375*. 

Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles. In a small bowl, combine ham, cheese, mustard and onion; place 2 Tb. mixture in center of each triangle. 

(If using deli slices and cheese spread, I did each one separately..
then added mustard and onion to each roll)

Fold points toward center and pinch edges to seal. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake 11 - 13 minutes or until lightly browned.

Yield: 4 servings (2 rolls each)
