Italian Sandwich Ring with Smokey Pimiento Cheese

1 can 8 count, 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*

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

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.
