A savory treat for Valentine's Day!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, this is a quick and easy recipe to uphold the festive spirit. With my kids coming home from school with conversation hearts and gazillions of heart-shaped lollipops, I wanted something to counteract all the sugar. While crescent rolls aren't something I eat often (although I'd like to), they're perfect for a special occasion. They're versatile and fun to create different shapes - like hearts. I added some low sodium ham and grainy mustard, and...voila! Fun Valentine's Day breakfast, snack or party food!
Experiment with different types of ham, mustard or cheeses!
