ham and cheese croissant melts

I've never really thought about preparing sandwiches ahead of time to eat later, but this recipe enlightened me. Plus, the croissants hold up really well and the Dijon sauce is just so tasty!

what you'll need:
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened 
  • ½ Tbsp. honey Dijon mustard 
  • 6 large croissants 
  • 6 slices provolone-mozzarella cheese
  • ¾ lb. sliced deli ham 

how you'll do it:
combine the cream cheese and honey Dijon mustard
 slice the croissants in half
spread top half with some of the cream cheese mixture
layer the ham over the bottom half of each croissant and top with a slice of cheese
cover sandwich with top layer and place on a baking sheet
bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until slightly golden and crispy and cheese is melted. Serve immediately

Freezer directions: Prepare sandwiches as above, but do not bake. Wrap each sandwich in foil and place in indicated number of freezer bags. To serve: remove from foil. Microwave until hot and cheese is melted, or bake at 350F 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden and crispy and cheese is melted. Serve.

  1. These look really good. We will have to give them a try. I will have to try to find some dairy free crossiants or maybe this would also work with yeast rolls.

    1. They are good, and I hope you have success with yeast rolls (yum idea!). I put a frozen one in my lunch box, which thaws out by lunchtime. Zap it in the microwave for about 1 minute and it's like I went to a sandwich shop! Yum!
