Ham Cheese and Cranberry Rollups are a festive appetizer for the holidays featuring ham, cheese and cranberry sauce rolled and baked in a crescent roll. These warm, savory rollups will be a big hit at your next get together!
HAM CHEESE AND CRANBERRY ROLLUPS
The holidays are all about get togethers that involve a spread of colorful and most importantly, delicious appetizers. These Ham Cheese and Cranberry Rollups would be a nice addition to the table alongside these Mediterranean Antipasto Skewers and maybe a Warm Cranberry Brie Naan.
Have you ever noticed that the appetizer table always has a crowd of people gathered around it? I am one of those that loves to chat, snack on finger foods and dips, and sip on a warm cup of cider. When I plan out a menu for parties I like to make sure I have a balance of sweet and savory foods. Today’s rollups fall into both categories by pairing the salty ham and cheese with the sweet cranberry sauce.
Ham Cheese and Cranberry Rollups feature Kretschmar Off The Bone Ham
along with cheddar and mozzarella cheese and a sweet spread of cranberry sauce wrapped in a warm, fluffy crescent roll. After they come out of the oven I like to top mine with poppy seeds, fresh parsley and another drizzle of cranberry sauce.
I am excited to be partnering with Kretschmar again to share these Ham Cheese and Cranberry Rollups with you for the holiday season. You can never have too many easy, festive appetizers this time of year.
As you might remember from last month’s recipe for Mediterranean Antipasto Skewers, Kretschmar provides premium deli meats and cheeses in Cleveland, Ohio. You can find their meats and cheeses at your local Marc’s grocery store deli counter. Kretschmar has a long history in Cleveland and has been serving up quality meats and cheeses since 1881. I love supporting local brands like this!
Let’s talk for a minute about their delicious Off The Bone Ham.
Their ham is MSG-free and gluten-free, with no fillers, and uses only the finest ingredients for the highest quality cuts of meats. The ham is hand-trimmed using the finest cuts and they are delicately sliced from the leanest, most tender cuts, and hand-selected to provide that delicious bone-in flavor. Their deli meats are such a versatile and easy go-to for any holiday meal or snack solution, saving you time in the kitchen so you can enjoy extra time with your family.
I like buying a big package of their Off The Bone Ham and using it in a couple of different ways. For example, you can make these rollups and then add the ham to your Mediterranean Antipasto Skewers alongside the turkey. You can also just roll the ham up and put toothpicks in it for those that want to eat the ham on its own. It is nice to give your guests options!
As you start to think about your parties, get togethers and family meals over the next month you need to keep this easy appetizer in your back pocket. These rollups are always a crowd pleaser!
Feel free to use whatever cheese you like. I have used swiss and sharp cheddar and like both of those too. You can skip the cranberry sauce. Another option is to use jelly or jam instead.
