Many of you have children at home getting into the swing of the school year and I'll bet some of those kids come home hungry, needing a snack or boost for studying.
See these little ham and cheese rolls? Deadly simple to put together and only 20 minutes in the oven. I have your attention, right?!
We don't have children at home but sometimes we have the need for a mid day snack on the weekends. It can actually substitute for a lunch, depending on how many you devour.
You will need a tube of refrigerated crescent rolls, thin slices of ham, cheese (shredded works) and maybe some Dijon mustard. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Roll those crescents out in one solid sheet. Pinch together any holes where they are meant to be pulled apart. Now spread a thin bit of Dijon mustard over the raw rectangle of dough. Top with thin slices of ham and cheese. Roll it as you would a jelly roll.
Ooops....I see a hole in this roll so now I know there will be cheese oozing out onto my baking sheet. Rats....
Slice the roll into 10 pieces and place on a baking sheet.
20 or so minutes later they are cooked. Not a great foodie shot but you get the idea.....
I used thicker ham one time and it was a fair disaster. Too much filling and so the dough would not stay closed. They tasted good but you seriously couldn't identify them as pinwheels.
As I said, easy to make and you can get a hungry person to stop baying for food while you prepare dinner. I remember having a hungry teenaged boy in the house so trust me, stock up on refrigerated crescents and ham!
