Ham, Cheese and Asparagus Croissants

Perfect Pairing:  Silicone steamer

I hope everyone enjoyed Super Bowl Sunday!  I was lucky enough to spend it with my parents and my brother's family.  The kids provided more entertainment than the game and all of the commercials combined.  They are so cute!

I got home on Saturday night from a great vacation in Cabo, Mexico.  I miss waking up to coffee with an ocean view!  Back to reality....

Everything about Ham, Cheese and Asparagus Croissants is delicious.  Just the smell of them baking is splendid.  They are so simple, require no measuring, and they are totally adaptable.  Change out the provolone cheese for cheddar, or the ham for turkey, eliminate the Dijon mustard or spread on some fancy mustard you have hanging out in the fridge.  You can’t mess them up.
The Perfect Pairing for these roll ups is a silicone steamer to cook the asparagus.  The steamer sits inside a pot over a little bit of water.  All of the asparagus sits on top of the steamer and is perfectly steamed in minutes.  I use my steamer for all kinds of vegetables.  It is easy to clean and store.  Awesome kitchen tool.

Ham, Cheese and Asparagus Croissants
Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing

·         1 can of croissants (I used the reduced fat variety, with 8 to a container)
·         4 tsp of Dijon mustard
·         8 slices of thinly sliced deli ham
·         8 slices of deli provolone cheese
·         16 spears of asparagus, steamed and cut in half
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Unroll the croissants and spread ½ teaspoon of mustard on each triangle.  Layer one slice of ham, one slice of cheese, and 4 pieces of asparagus over the wide end of the croissant.  Roll up the dough and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown and the cheese begins to melt.  Serve warm.
