Serves: 4
  • 3 Tbsp butter melted, divided
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1½ c. cooked ham, chopped
  • 1 c. broccoli, chopped
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ c. chopped green onion
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (Pillsbury Grands Big & Buttery Crescents are the best!)
  • ⅔ c. seasoned croutons, crushed
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend 2 Tbsp. melted butter, milk and cream cheese until smooth. Add the next 6 ingredients and mix well.
  3. Separate the crescents into 4 rectangles and firmly press together the perforations to seal.
  4. Spoon ¼ of the ham mixture onto the center of each rectangle. (It will seem like a lot to fit into the squares, but it will work!)
  5. Pull the four corners of dough to the top center of the ham mixture. Press the edges together and seal with your fingers to create a square pocket.
  6. Brush the tops of the crescent squares with the remaining Tablespoon of melted butter. Dip the top of each square in crushed crouton crumbs.
  7. Bake on a light colored cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes at 350°F, or until they are golden brown.
  8. Serve Immediately.
