"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 can (8oz.) refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls 1/3 c. gourmet spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs (Alloutte is a good brand) 4 slices (1 oz. each) thinly sliced deli ham 1/2 c. packed spinach leaves

Top with 1 slice ham and spinach leaves. 3. Starting at short side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll crosswise into six slices for a total of 24 slices.
