  • 1 (8-ounce) can crescent-roll dough

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 to 2 slices cooked ham, cut into eight 2-inch square pieces

  3. Starting with the long end, roll each piece of dough up toward the point to form a crescent and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Brush each crescent with egg and top each with a pinch of grated cheese. Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake until golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Serve.
