Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Squares

This recipe is a Mr. Tipsy favorite. He asks for this almost every football Sunday. Football Sunday in our house is him on the couch eating and me in the kitchen cooking and having some pantry drinks. Truth be told, it’s one of my favorite days of the week. Below is a full, printable recipe, but I am going to share a couple tips and tricks in the next section.

Let This Rest

The recipe is pretty straightforward , the only trick to this recipe is to make sure to let this rest before you cut into it. This allows the meat and cheese to settle and come together. If you cut it too soon, all the cheese and meat will slide out of it. I let this rest on top of the warm stove, as the oven cools and then I slice this with a pizza cutter.

Fork This

Make sure to use a fork to stab some holes in the top layer of the crescent roll sheet before you bake it. This prevents the pastry from getting too puffy and lets the whole inside come together.

Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Squares

These Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Squares are a great appetizer or after school snack. I love making these for Football Sunday. I like that you can make these ahead of time and reheat them in your oven or air fryer. I use ham and provolone but you can use any deli meat you choose.
