Savoury Cheese and Ham Croissants

cook 30 mins
  • butter, for greasing
  • 250 g (8 oz) can croissant dough
  • 12 slices of wafer-thin ham
  • 6 thin slices of Gruyère or Emmenthal cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • beaten egg, to glaze
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  • Tear the croissant dough along the perforations. For each croissant, unroll and lay 2 slices of ham on top of the dough, trying to keep the ham within the dough's outline, then lay 1 cheese slice over the top (this needs to be thin to be able to roll). Lightly spread with the mustard.
  • Roll up the croissants, gently curl into a crescent shape and place on the baking sheets. Brush with beaten egg, then sprinkle with the Parmesan.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 10–15 minutes until well risen and golden. Serve warm.
