Ham & Cheese Rollups

ham & cheese rollups

These are a throwback from my high school cafeteria that i started re-creating a few years ago. This is a quick and dirty writeup for the inquiring minds of twitter.

What you need:

Your favorite pizza/bread dough (I will get the balls of pre-made pizza dough at the store to make this even easier)
2 c. shredded cheese (Cheddar, Swiss, Gruyere, any of ’em will work)
1 c. finely cubed ham (or just sliced ham chopped finely would work too)
1-2 T. butter, melted

Heat oven to 350°. Lightly grease an 8″ square baking pan with butter or cooking spray (you can also cook in a lightly greased cast iron skillet).

Roll out the dough into a rectangle (12″x18″). Brush the dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and then the ham. Be sure to cover the dough all the way to the edges. I usually leave a 1″ edge at the top though. Roll up from the bottom to the top, pinching to seal the top edge. Cut roll into 2″ slices.

Place slices into greased pan. Sprinkle with a little additional cheese, if you feel the need (I almost always do). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
