Ingredients

1
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed to drain
1/3
cup garlic-and-herbs spreadable cheese
1/4
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz)
1/4
cup shredded 5-cheese or 6-cheese Italian cheese blend (1 oz)
3
tablespoons freshly grated Pecorino Romano or regular Romano cheese
2
tablespoons finely chopped shallot or onion
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
1/8
teaspoon salt, if desired
1/8
teaspoon pepper, if desired
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
24
paper-thin slices (about 4 inch diameter) smoked ham (from two 9-oz packages)*
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix all ingredients except dough, ham and Parmesan cheese until well blended. Set aside.
  • 2 Unroll dough. Separate or cut dough into 4 rectangles (if using crescent dough, press perforations to seal). Cut each rectangle into 6 (2-inch) squares. Press 1 square in bottom and up side of each of 24 ungreased mini muffin cups.
  • 3 Pat each ham slice dry with paper towel. Place 1 ham slice over dough in each cup (edges of ham will be higher than side of cup.) Spoon rounded 1 teaspoon spinach mixture onto ham in center of each cup.
  • 4 Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is hot. To prevent excessive browning of ham, cover lightly with foil after first 5 minutes of baking. Cool in pan 1 minute. Gently remove from pan; let stand 3 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan cheese before serving. Serve warm.
