Perfect party snack – Ham and Cheese Rolls are soft and gooey, pizza style rolls.
These Cheesy rolls are my favorite appetizer, which I like to prepare for years for family and birthday celebrations, and I can tell you that every time, they are a hit, however good the rest of the feast is 🙂
When I made them for the first party since I got married, all of the guests asked in which bakery I had bought that fantastic pastry. Even my husband couldn’t believe that something that tasty came out of my kitchen and told me: “OK, you showed off in front of the guests, but now admit, where did you buy them?”. In order to make him believe, I had to make them again in a few days. From then on, I make them very often, even when it’s not a special occasion, because my husband and I simply love them. Almost always, it ends in a fight for the last bite 🙂
Except being very tasty, these Ham and Cheese Rolls are great “Freezer Friendly” food, so you can always have them in reserve when you need a dinner, or a breakfast or a lunch ready in 20 minutes.
These rolls are something between pastry and pizza and you can make them very quickly and easily using store-bought puff pastry sheets.
Here’s what you need for them: A few thin slices of ham, grated mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, olive oil, oregano, basil, and two sheets of puff pastry. You roll out thawed pastry into a rectangle, spread pizza sauce on it, arrange the ham, sprinkle the grated mozzarella, roll that into a log, cut it, brush with olive oil mixed with a little oregano and basil and trhe rolls are ready for baking! I like to sprinkle them with some Parmesan, but if you don’t like that, you can skip that step.
If you don’t want to bake the rolls at that moment, pack them and you can keep it in the freezer for another chance when you need a quick and tasty meal .
If you have not tried these Ham and Cheese Rolls by now, you simply have to. You can change the ingredients for filling, add or take something as you wish. You can replace the ham with sausage or you can even make a veggie version with mushrooms. I’m sure every version will be tasty. Enjoy!!!
