Ham, Cheddar and Apple Butter Croissants

Ham, Cheddar and Apple Butter Croissants 1

Ham, Cheddar and Apple Butter Croissants.  The combination of flaky croissant, sweet apple butter and spicy/salty Dijon mustard, Black Forest ham and sharp cheddar is unbelievably good.  These ingredients put together offer such a great combination tastes and textures.

I often suggest switching out ingredients and substituting with your favorite cheese or meat or even mustard, but I will tell you, this recipe is perfect “as is!”


  • 8 croissant, halved horizontally
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons apple butter
  • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 pound Black Forest ham, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces extra-sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced


  • Brush cut side of 4 croissant with oil. Place croissants, cut side up, on baking sheet.
  • Broil until croissants begin to brown around edges – 1 2 minutes.
  • Spread apple butter and mustard on each croissant half and then top with ham.
  • Add the other 4 croissant halves to the pan and top with cheese
  • Broil until cheese melts and begins to brown in spots, about 2 minutes.
  • Assemble by adding cheese topped croissants to ham topped croissants
