Mini Monte Cristos Recipe

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury┬« Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 16 very thin slices smoked turkey
  • 16 cubes Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend
  • Powdered sugar
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Dijon mustard (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or spray with cooking spray. In small bowl, beat egg and milk with fork until well blended; set aside.
  2. Unroll dough; separate crosswise into 2 (6×8-inch) rectangles, firmly pressing perforations to seal. With knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 8 (3×2-inch) rectangles.
  3. Fold each slice of turkey in half; place on dough rectangles. Place 1 cheese cube in center of each; fold turkey around cheese cube. Wrap dough up around turkey and cheese, shaping into a ball; pinch tightly to seal. Brush top and sides of each ball with egg mixture; place on greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm with maple syrup or Dijon mustard for dipping.
