  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup finely diced ham
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple drained very well*
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 crescent roll dough sheet
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. In a medium-sized bowl mix together the cream cheese, ham, pineapple, scallion, mustard, and garlic until combined. Set aside.
  • Roll out the crescent roll dough on a clean work surface. Have the longer edge facing you. Smear the cream cheese mixture all over the dough, leaving a ¾ inch border of dough with no mixture. Starting at the long edge facing you, tightly roll the crescent roll dough over the mixture forming a log, pinch the seam together. As evenly as you can, cut into 12 even slices.
  • Place the slices, barely touching onto the sheet tray. I did 4 rows of 3 rolls. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with more sliced scallions and parsley, optional.


Drain the pineapple very well by putting it into a fine-mesh strainer and pressing all of the juice out.
