Ingredients in Ham and Cheese Croissants
Ham – We love these with leftover slices of ham, but deli ham works just as well.
Cheese – I love pairing ham with Swiss or gruyere cheese, but almost any variety of hard cheese can be used. Try cheddar, marble cheese, or Monterey Jack in place of Swiss!
Croissants – I love to make these with flaky croissants from the bakery but of course you can try your hand at homemade croissants too. For smaller bites, roll up the ingredients in refrigerated crescent rolls and bake as we do our Reuben roll ups.
Sauce – Yellow or Dijon mustard are favorites with ham, this recipe includes a simple homemade honey mustard sauce.

Storing and Reheating
Ham and cheese croissants will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating in a 250°-300° oven on a sheet loosely covered with foil until the ham is heated through and the cheese has remelted.
