Ingredients

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 

1 large yellow onion, finely chopped  

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

4 thick slices baked honey ham, such as Kentucky Legend® Baked Honey Ham 

3 ounces Brie, rind removed 

One 8-ounce tube refrigerated crescent roll dough 

Dijon mustard, for serving 

Directions

  1. Heat the butter and oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Raise the heat slightly and continue to cook to develop a deep golden color, about 5 minutes more. Transfer the onions to a small bowl to cool completely.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. 
  3. Cut each slice of ham into 12 pieces, each about 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inches. Cut the Brie into 24 pieces, each about 1/4 inch by 1 inch.  
  4. Unroll the dough on a cutting board and separate into 8 triangles at the perforations. Cut each triangle into 3 long, thin triangles. Stack two pieces of ham, 1/4 teaspoon of the caramelized onions, and 1 piece of Brie across the tip end of each triangle, roll up in the dough and place seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Top each finished roll with a dab of the remaining caramelized onions.  
  5. Bake until the dough is golden brown and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm with Dijon mustard for dipping.
