Ham & Cheese Crescent Rolls

Ham Cheese Crescent Rolls

I grew up with roll up sandwiches for family outings. But I wanted to take the flavor up a notch so when I make them I add in Basil Essential Oil, Garlic and Onion.

Ingredients

2 – 8ct tube Cresent Roll Dough
1 lb Deli Sliced Ham
8 oz Cream Cheese softened
1 toothpick swirl* of doTerra Basil Essential Oil
1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
1 T Dehydrated Onions
1/2 Shredded Cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cream cheese in a glass or ceramic bowl. Dip a toothpick into the basil essential oil and swirl it around in the cream cheese. Add garlic, onions, and cheese and stir well.

Stack 2 slices of ham. Smear 1 T of cheese mixture on half of the ham. Roll ham starting at the cheese covered side. Roll crescent dough around each ham roll. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10-14 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before eating. Or cool completely and store in refrigerator until serving.

*The toothpick method
1 toothpick dip =  dip a toothpick into the essential oil and dip it once into the recipe
1 toothpick swirl = dip a toothpick into the essential oil and swirl it around in the recipe
1/2 drop – Drop an essential oil onto a spoon, then use the tip of a sharp knife to obtain the desired flavor
