This delicious combination of soft, buttery dough with deli ham and cheese makes this an irresistible meal. You’ll have a hard time putting any away in the freezer.


  • Dough for the Crescent Rolls:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2.5 teaspoons yeast
  • Filling for the Crescent Rolls:
  • About 1 lb of deli ham
  • About 16 oz. mozzarella cheese (or a large bag of shredded)
  • 5 tablespoons of melted butter


  1. Put dough ingredients into bread machine as directed.
  2. After dough cycle is complete, separate the dough into two mounds and flour your surface and rolling pin well.
  3. Roll one mound of dough out until it is flattened to about 1/2 inch thick. It should be about the size of a large pizza.
  4. Brush dough with melted butter.
  5. Using a pizza cutter, make pie shaped pieces by cutting straight lines through the dough. (Again, like you would cut a pizza.)
  6. Add ham and cheese to each slice. I usually use about 2 pieces of ham and one piece of cheese per slice.
  7. Starting at the large end, roll up the dough.
  8. Place on greased baking sheet with the end side underneath the roll. Repeat these steps for your second mound of dough.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Make sure bread is golden brown.
  10. Brush rolls with melted butter and let cool a bit before serving.
