Easy Recipe for Ham and Cheese Roll Ups
You may not believe it, but baking a ham and cheese roll-up is less messy than fixing a sandwich. This baked goodie stays together due to the melted cheese and keeps family members free of peanut butter, mustard or mayonnaise that you might use in a typical sandwich.
Ingredients for Ham and Cheese Roll Ups
You only need three ingredients for this easy recipe for Ham and Cheese Roll Ups.
- 1 Package of Croissant Rolls
- 1 Cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 6 Slices of Ham or your favorite lunchmeat
Directions for Ham and Cheese Roll Ups
- Open the Croissant Rolls package and use a roller to roll out the dough on parchment paper. Use your fingers to push the dough together where it is separated.
- Sprinkle on the cheddar cheese.
- Lay the ham slices on top of the cheese.
- Roll the dough longways into a Ham and Cheese Roll Up
- Bake approximately 15-18 minutes at 350 degrees.
