We’ve all enjoyed those traditional ham and cheese sandwiches – you know, the ones that make the holidays so wonderful. I bake those every Christmas and my family loves them. These baked ham and cheese rollups are a wonderful new take on that old traditional recipe. You get the same ham and cheese deliciousness along with the Worcestershire, mustard, and poppy seeds, but in a whole new way that you’re bound to love.
These yummy roll ups only take about 40 minutes to make and that includes the prep time. They would be great for any family get-together, or they may just become your favorite holiday recipe! If you love filled rolls, you also need to check out these cheese and bacon filled chicken rolls – they’re the perfect sit down family meal.
You could use the traditional Swiss cheese for these or if you prefer, substitute for sharp cheddar or any sharp cheese that you like. I’m a huge fan of sharp cheddar and think that would taste wonderful as a substitute if you aren’t a fan of Swiss.
These are so delicious and so very easy to make. I whipped up a batch for a Super Bowl party and they were a huge hit. I can’t even imagine going back to the old way of making these. The puff pastry makes them taste so light and fluffy – and you can totally substitute pizza dough or crescent rolls if you want. Oh, and these baked avocado fries with jalapeno sauce are also a huge sports party hit.
So, if you’ve always loved those ham and Swiss rolls, you are really going to love these ham and cheese roll ups. They’re actually easier to make than the rolls – since you don’t have to slice the rolls before you fill them – and they have such a wonderful flavor. Add these to your must-do food list for your next party and I guarantee your guests will love them!
