Hot Ham and Swiss Croissants

I often talk about how recipes bring back certain memories and these hot ham and swiss croissants are definitely comfort food from the past for me. I don’t remember having hot ham and swiss often, but when we did, I loved it. Most likely because, cheese. I hadn’t made them in years and thought it was about time.

With school and sports schedules being as busy as ever, I need quick dinners to have ready for my kids when they get home from practice. These sandwiches are perfect because I can make them up in the morning (when I have energy and motivation), wrap them in foil and pop them in the fridge until it is time to put them in the oven. The only take about 15 minutes to bake which makes them an easy last-minute meal.

Serve the sandwiches alongside a salad and some fresh fruit and you’re set to go.

The croissants give the sandwiches an elegant look. Don’t have croissants? Use hamburger buns or even leftover dinner rolls. Just don’t forget the honey mustard sauce. It makes the cheesy sandwich melt in your mouth!

This recipe is by Parrish from Life With the Crust Cut Off. She has a new cookbook called Halfway Homemade, a book that proves you can have dinner on the table for your family in 30 minutes. As I flipped through the beautiful cookbook, I had a hard time choosing just one recipe to share. They all looked so good! You’ll find something for every meal of the day, and even desserts to end the day on a sweet note. Need dinner inspiration? Buy this cookbook on Amazon!
