Makes: 12 appetizers
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated garlic-butter crescent rolls
1/3 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 c. ham, cooked & finely chopped
1 T. green onion, finely chopped
3 T. half & half
Unroll crescent dough into 1 large rectangle on work surface. Press into a 12 x 9 rectangle firmly pressing perforations to seal. Cut dough into 12 squares. Gently press squares into 12 ungreased mini muffin cups, with tips up out the top of the cup. Put cheese evenly into dough-lined cups. Top each with ham and onion. In a small bowl, beat egg and whipping cream with whisk or fork until blended. Spoon slightly less than 1 tablespoon mixture into each cup. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until edges are golden brown and filling is set. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from cups.

Tips: These were very tasty little appetizers and they look nice too. The easiest way to put these together is to get all of the ingredients together first, keeping the crescent dough in the refrigerator until you are ready to spread it out and put it in the cups. To chop the ham, I used a small piece of ham steak and put it in my food chopper. It came out in nice tiny pieces and not ham puree (which I was worried it might).
I think these would make a nice addition to a breakfast potluck just use regular crescent rolls instead of the garlic-butter flavor. There are almost always coupons available for crescent rolls so wait for these to go on sale and pick some up. If you find a really good sale, then make Somethin' Yummy too! These did take a little bit more work than I prefer to put into an appetizer but at least it was a good outcome.
