Easy Ham and Cheese Spirals Appetizer Snack Recipe

Today I am sharing a recipe for one of my favorite appetizers to make and eat! These Ham & Cheese Spirals are great snack recipe to take to family and church get-togethers, tail gating parties, wedding and baby showers too. They also make a great afternoon snack for kids.  If you do not eat pork, you can use turkey instead of ham.  You can also make a low fat version of thse by using reduced fat crescent rolls, turkey, low fat cream cheese (or neufchâtel cheese) and fat free sour cream. They are a quick, easy and delicious finger food!

ham and cheese spirals recipe



  • 2 Cans of Crescent Rolls (I use the reduced fat)
  • 1 Pack of Sandwich Ham (use turkey for a low fat or non-pork version)
  • 1 8oz package of Cream Cheese (can use low fat or neufchatel cheese instead)
  • 8 oz of Sour Cream (can substitute for Light or Low Fat)
  • 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip/Dressing Mix (I actually prefer to use the Spinach Herb Mix from Tastefully Simple)



  • Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix the Cream Cheese, Sour Cream and Dip mix together well until mostly smooth.
  • Roll out 2 crescent rolls and pinch them together to make a rectangle dough
  • Add 1 slice of the ham or turkey
  • Spread a thin and even layer of the cheese/sour cream dip mix
  • Carefully roll the crescent roll sandwich
  • Cut into 5-6 smaller pieces using a chef, santuko or other large knife. *be sure to wipe the knife off with a paper towel between every few cuts – this will make it easier to slice through
  • Place pinwheels onto a baking sheet or cookie pan
  • Bake 8-10 minutes until the crescent rolls are golden brown
  • Serve & enjoy!
