Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Cut two 8-inch rounds of cooking parchment paper. Place round in bottom of air fryer basket. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    If using crescent rolls, separate dough into 4 rectangles; reshape each rectangle to form 6x4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal; if using dough sheet, unroll and cut into 4 (6x4-inch) rectangles.
  • 3
    Place one cheese slice half on center of each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edge. Top each with 1 slice ham (folding in half to fit), and top with another cheese slice half. Fold dough from top over cheese and ham; firmly press edges with fork to seal. Place two filled crescents onto parchment round in basket of air fryer, spacing apart.
  • 4
    Set air fryer to 325°F; bake 8 to 10 minutes or until deep golden brown on top and sturdy enough to turn over with tongs. With tongs or spatula, carefully turn over crescents, and bake 3 to 6 minutes longer or until dough is deep golden brown and thoroughly cooked. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm while baking second batch. Repeat for remaining filled crescents, and place on remaining parchment round in basket of air fryer. Bake as directed as above.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try your favorite cheese slice in place of Swiss, like pepper Jack, Monterey Jack or mozzarella for these Air Fryer Grilled Cheese and Ham Crescent Pockets.
  • tip 2
    Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start. Never preheat with parchment paper alone. Air fryers vary in size and settings. If using a larger air fryer, such as 7-quart size, you may be able to fit all crescent pockets into one batch for baking. Be sure to bake them in a single layer, spacing apart, and with enough room to turn them over.
  • tip 3
    Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • tip 4
    Be sure to get a good seal on all edges of your crescent dough to ensure all of the melty cheese stays inside the crescent roll ham and cheese pockets during baking.
