Servings 8


  • 1 can 8 Pillsbury Grands {or regular} Crescent Rolls or 1 can Crescent Roll dough sheet
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard dressing {I used Ken’s}
  • 1 1/2 cups Smoked Gouda Pimiento Cheese {recipe below}
  • 6-8 thin slices deli ham
  • 12 thin slices Genoa or hard salami
  • 6 thin sandwich slices Italian blend cheese or Havarti, Fontina
  • 2 T soft butter
  • Garlic Salt Seasoning or use garlic powder, Italian seasoning and parsley
  • 1-2 sprigs fresh rosemary

Smoked Gouda Pimiento Cheese

  • 4 oz smoked Gouda, grated
  • 6 oz extra sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 oz chopped pimientos, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Maple Bacon Aioli** or quality mayonnaise


  • Unroll dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Pinch seams to seal.
  • Spread honey mustard over dough.
  • Using a spoon, place small dollops of Smoked Gouda Pimiento Cheese evenly over the mustard, using your fingers if necessary.
  • Top cheese with slices of ham, then salami, then Italian blend slices.
  • Starting from the long side of dough, carefully roll dough and fillings into a log, and roll until the seam side is down on the paper. Roll dough up in paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Place parchment roll onto a cookie sheet and unwrap dough roll. Carefully form into a ring, bringing ends together and pinch well to seal.
  • Spread top of roll liberally with soft butter. Season with garlic seasoning and sprinkle grated Parmesan liberally over all.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until dough is cooked through {check inside of the ring} and golden. Garnish with fresh rosemary. Cut into slices to serve.

Smoked Gouda Pimiento Cheese

  • Mix everything together. This is a fairly “dry” version, add more mayonnaise or aioli if desired


Maple Bacon Aioli is made by Stonewall Kitchen and is available in many upscale grocery stores or on StonewallKitchen.com .  Substitute good quality mayonnaise mixed with cooked maple bacon pieces if desired
