I love brunches.
Yes, I do end up stuffing myself silly... there is usually just so much to choose from!
You have an array of savory and sweet dishes served... the best combination, if you ask me.
I love serving at least one brunch dish that includes ham as an ingredient. Ham... you really can do so much with it!
For this dish, I wanted to combine ham and spinach... and it doesn't hurt to throw a little Gouda cheese in there, either...
This would be a fabulous Easter brunch item... it's easy... and takes hardly anytime to prepare and bake. Who wants to be slaving away during meal time!?!
Not this lady!
Ham Spinach Rolls with Gouda Cheese
- 12 Flaky Crescent Rolls, Unbaked
- 1 Cup Cooked Ham, Diced
- 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 6 oz. Fresh Spinach
- Pinch of Sea or Kosher Salt
- Pinch of Black Pepper
- 1 Cup Shredded Gouda Cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F).
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large saute pan, heat the oil on medium/low heat. Add the spinach, salt, and pepper. Saute the spinach until just wilted.
Transfer the spinach to a paper towel lined plate, to drain any excess oil.
On a clean surface, gently stretch the triangular crescent rolls a bit, to allow more surface area. Divide the spinach, cooked ham, and Gouda between the crescent rolls. Fold the crescent rolls by over lapping all three sides and pinching to close, securing the ingredients inside.
Place the closed rolls onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the rolls are cooked and browned on top. Makes 12 rolls.
