This quick and easy side goes well with soup for lunch, as a speedy snack for the big game and is always a big hit at brunches and potlucks.
Preparation level: Adult supervision — sharp edges, hot oven involved
Preheat oven according to package directions.
Laying the ham on a cutting board, cut each slice into 8 equal pieces (cut across the diameter 4 times - like a pizza - a great opportunity for a math refresher for your kids). Each piece will be roughly triangular in shape.
Then cut 16 pieces of cheese, each measuring approximately 1/2" x 1/2" x 2". I usually cut four 1/2" thick slices of block cheese, then cut them in half, then in half again to make 16 pieces. (More math! But it's really easier than it sounds.)
If you use cheese string snacks instead, remove the wrappers and cut each one into 4 pieces.
Open the crescent rolls and unwrap and separate the triangular rolls. On each roll, place one triangular piece of ham and lay one piece of cheese across the wide end. Roll the crescent roll up, then tuck in and pinch the ends to seal. Place on a baking sheet and cook according to the package directions (usually 10 - 13 minutes at 350 degrees F).
That's it! Serve warm and enjoy. Makes 16.
