Bar-S And CMT Making Music Come Alive This Summer

This is a sponsored post.

The sound of plucked strings and a singing heart is all one needs to enjoy a summer afternoon. This is something that Bar-S is aware of, which is one reason they partnered with CMT this summer.

Both Bar-S and CMT have been looking for a great way to conjure up a partnership that would marry everything that makes a summer great. The CMT Summer of Music Sweepstakes was the outcome of that partnership. Those interested in the CMT Music Awards and the up-and-coming country music superstars should definitely consider entering.

Leave it to Bar-S and CMT to have a sweepstakes where all you have to do is buy and cook what you already love. Don’t know what to cook? They have lots of great recipes on their website.  I found a recipe for mini ham and cheese roll-ups and made my own variation.  Check out my recipe below.


mini ham and cheese roll ups


1/4 package (2 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1 teaspoon honey

1/2 teaspoon teriyaki sauce

1 package (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent roll dough

2 or 3 slices Bar-S Honey Ham


1.    Heat oven to 375 F.

2.    In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese, shredded cheese, honey and Worcestershire sauce.

3.    Unroll dough. Cut each triangle in half to create 2 triangles. Cut ham slices the same size as dough triangles. For each appetizer, place one slice ham on one triangle of dough. Spoon about a teaspoon of cheese mixture on wide end of the triangle. Roll up the dough, beginning with the wide end. Place seam side down on baking sheet.

4.    Bake 11–15 minutes or until golden brown.

You can find the original recipe on their website Here.
