Turkey Gouda Party Rolls With Honey Mustard Glaze
Turkey gouda party rolls with honey mustard glaze will be a massive hit at your next gathering! Quick and easy with a simple make-ahead option. Perfect for parties, game day, lunch, and using up leftover turkey, too.
What kind of party planner are you? Personally, I am definitely evolving over time. I used to be a semi-obsessive, make absolutely everything from scratch type, even if I drove myself insane. Fortunately for, well, everyone, I’ve mellowed on this with the passage of time.
Make no mistake, if you come to my house for any type of gathering, I will do my absolute best to ensure you find plentiful food and libations suited to the occasion. I’ve just learned that it’s OK to take a shortcut here and there!
The three party planning “rules” I do my best to follow these days:
- Not EVERYTHING needs to be the MOST AMAZING thing, or totally from scratch. Choose a couple of items you really want to make entirely from scratch or otherwise spend a lot of time and energy on. There are ways to make the rest of the menu special and delicious without going out of your mind!
- Make and prep-ahead options are your BFF. Sounds obvious, but seriously. If you can make or prep something, even part of a recipe, ahead of time, DO IT. As much as possible! Not only will you *actually* have more the day before and day of the party, you’ll *feel* like an organized rock star, and who doesn’t want that vibe!?
- Be realistic about how long things will take and how much time you have. I used to be the queen of underestimating how long tasks would take and simultaneously overestimating how much time I’d have. “OK, if I make and decorate 48 mini cupcakes in 1 hour, then wash and cut 5 pounds of veggies in 15 minutes, there’ll be ample time to clean the whole house, too.” You can see how this didn’t work out. Instead, now I usually take 15 minutes sometime a week or two in advance of any party, and think very deliberately about every task that needs to be done. This helps me identify those things that can be done in advance, prioritize the rest, and spot early on if something I’d hoped to make or do is just not feasible and I need to find an alternative.
But I’m here for the food…
OK, but, you didn’t come here for party planning tips, you came here for a recipe! These killer turkey gouda party rolls, to be exact. So, without further ado, let me tell you why you will love these.
- Uh, turkey and gouda. Duh. An amazing combination.
- Honey mustard glaze. Again, hello! You’ll only brush a little of the sauce on the rolls; I authorize you in advance to eat the rest with a spoon.
- Crescent roll dough. Who doesn’t love the stuff!? Yes, I normally love making it all from scratch, but this is an example of the first “rule” above.
- SO easy, AND so easy to prep ahead of time. Shape the rolls, arrange on a baking tray, wrap tightly in foil, and refrigerate until ready to glaze and bake. (You can prep the glaze in advance, too.) You could even take them over to a friend’s house this way and bake on the spot!
- A great use for leftover turkey! Thanksgiving over, holiday parties coming up? Two birds, one stone!

I honestly have a hard time deciding which is my favorite occasion for these. Game day snacks? Yes! Weekend lunch? Yes! Day after Thanksgiving feast? Absolutely! Kids’ birthday party? Gotta love anything this delicious and not messy and single-serving! (The glaze pretty much bakes on/into the rolls.) Holiday party? Don’t mind me while I hover obsessively near the platter and eat, uh, more than one. At a time. Ha!
Turkey Gouda Party Rolls with Honey Mustard Glaze
For the Rolls
- 1 tube crescent roll dough
- 1/2 pound thin-sliced turkey breast
- 8 slices Gouda cheese
For the Glaze
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup whole grain or Dijon mustard
- 1 Tablespoon distilled white vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet or pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- To make the honey mustard glaze, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl or liquid measuring cup, and whisk to blend. Set aside.
- Unroll crescent dough and and stretch into an approximately 12x18 inch rectangle, lightly pressing the seams together to form a sheet.
- Top the crescent roll sheet with an even layer of turkey, followed by the cheese.
- Starting on the long side, roll the dough up into a tight log. Pinch the seam together and, using a very sharp knife, cut into 12 pieces.
- Arrange rolls on the baking tray with approximately 1/2-inch space between them.
- Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of the honey-mustard glaze over each roll. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned.

Do you have any substitute for the honey mustard glaze!? My boyfriend doesn’t like mustard 🙁
You could try a maple glaze, something like this recipe! But it could be worth trying the honey mustard – I don’t like mustard as a stand-alone condiment, either, but combined with honey and cooked it really does take on a different flavor. Either way, I hope these are a winner for you! Let me know what you decide!
Is there a substitute you’d recommend for the crescent dough? I really cannot stand the taste of that stuff unfortunately. Do you think low carb wraps would work? Thanks in advance!
You could try using pizza dough, biscuits, or wraps – the first two will rise a bit, whereas the wraps will mostly just be a flat base, but depending on what you’re going for, it could be really delicious!
Have you tried baking these the night before your event and re-heating just before serving? I am crunched for time and was wondering if I could try it.
Hi Lippy- I’ve done this with leftovers when I made a big batch once or twice and it works OK! Hard to match the texture of the crescent rolls straight out of the oven but the flavor is still on point! I’d recommend reheating on medium-low heat in the oven if time/oven space permits!
What a delicious appetizer and party snack! This would sure be a hit around our house!
These are such an awesome snacky-lunchy dish! I totally want one right now! And I am just like you in my approach to parties and always have to remind myself of the tips you shared to let things go a bit! So thank you!
Thanks, Amy! Yes, I hear you, sometimes we’re our own worst enemies when we make our to-do lists, I swear, but it’s getting easier for me to relax with time! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
Yum! What a good idea for leftover turkey!
These are a perfect idea for New Year’s eve! I bet these will please my guests a lot! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I’m an obsessive party planner! Sometimes I just need to get out of my own way. Nobody cares if I take a few shortcuts and relax!
I don’t think these would last until the party. I should just make them for my husband and me and call it dinner. It’s more truthful if not a bit piggish.
Ohh these would be popular at a party!!! Love it!
Omgosh…who doesn’t want these? Holy yum…turkey and gouda…and crescent rolls?! I’m embarrassed to admit how many of these I may not end up sharing if I make them. Great idea…thanks for sharing!
I’ll definitely be sharing this one with my family! We always have leftover turkey and need ideas!
Yay! Hope you love it, Liz!
