There’s a rather big football game coming up! If you’ve been around here long then you know we are big football fans, but more of the college variety! So, even though we don’t watch a lot of NFL during the season, we’re usually “game” to watch the Super Bowl. I love an excuse to make fun food & have a little party! Now with the kids though, we have to make sure that we have kid-friendly options. These ham & cheese roll-ups are great for kids and adults alike, are easy to make, and are even a bit football-shaped! Perfect little football finger foods for sure! And, they even freeze well too! I made a big batch & just kept them in the freezer. Sort of like homemade hot pockets! I could just pop them in the microwave and have a quick snack or meal for the kids!
The idea for these comes from Pillsbury. I happened to have a couple of cans of Pillsbury crescent roll dough and couldn’t decide what to make with them. I stumbled upon their ham & cheese crescent rollups and knew they’d be perfect for the kids!
The “recipe” for making these really couldn’t be easier! You just unroll your crescent dough and separate out the triangles. On each triangle place of slice of ham (as thinly sliced as possible) and two small strips of cheese (pick your fave). Then, roll up the triangles (fold in the sides as best you can). The possibilities of flavors here are really endless. You wouldn’t have to stick to ham & cheese! Pizza roll-ups? Turkey & pepper jack roll-ups? So many great options! But, simple ham and cheese was best for the kiddos!
Then, bake at 350 for about 15 minutes (until the rolls are golden brown). Just beware, if you use American cheese like I did, some cheese running out the sides was a bit unavoidable. You might consider baking on parchment or foil for easier clean up! Easy & yummy! Perfect for some low maintenance football-watching finger foods that everyone can enjoy!
