Ham and Cheese Croissant

January 29, 2018Teresa

This breakfast Ham and Cheese Croissant is outstanding. It’s made with crescent rolls so it’s a lot easier than making homemade dough from scratch. The filling includes diced ham, Swiss cheese, spinach, onion and tomatoes. It’s the perfect breakfast dish for holidays or company since everyone always loves it!

Back in December we had a “Breakfast For Dinner” night with our Friday night care group. I had been wanting to make this recipe for years and finally had an occasion to serve it. I cooked up a spiral cut ham the week before Thanksgiving and froze all the leftovers. I made up a Ham and Scalloped Sweet Potatoes, a Navy Bean Soup and this delicious recipe with the ham left over from that potluck.

I got rave reviews over this recipe. Everyone LOVED it! Bar none. The Swiss cheese melted on top made it gooey and cheesy which elevated it in everyone’s opinion. It’s just one of those recipes that you enjoy eating.

Years ago, I served on the school board at our church’s Christian school. We were having a Saturday breakfast meeting and the Headmaster brought this fabulous entree. She made quite a few things that morning and everything was gobbled up pronto! I tracked her down for the recipe and had it in the email section on my phone for a long time. I forgot about it. Then, about six months ago, when I was going through old emails and deleting them, I saw the recipe and made sure it got into my cookbook.

This is not a recipe you want to forget about. Ham and Cheese Croissant is so good that it should be made frequently! I do recommend that you do your level best to squeeze all the water out of the spinach before you make it. I pressed the spinach through a colander. Then, I squeezed it again in my hands before I was satisfied that most of the water was removed. Otherwise the recipe may get soupy.

I highly recommend Ham and Cheese Croissant for holidays–especially Easter or Father’s Day. Since it’s got a lot of protein guys really like it. That was sure the case when I served it a few months ago. Give this Ham and Cheese Croissant a try and you’ll see what everyone was raving about too.

      Hi, Norma. The ham is pre-cooked. You can use leftover ham from a spiral cut ham, or diced pre-packaged ham in a package. So glad you enjoy my recipes. 🙂
