With all the running around that we do, sometimes we just want an easy dinner idea that we can throw together quickly and that our children will enjoy. These ham and cheese pinwheels are exactly that! It takes just a few minutes to assemble them and they cook in just about 12 minutes. As an added bonus, they can also do “double-duty” as an appetizer/finger food at parties!
These are made with cheddar cheese, but give other cheeses a try. My children prefer when I use mozzarella cheese or even American cheese, as they end up being more “gooey” once they are cooked. I just think they look better with cheddar!
To make them, you will need:
Making them is easy!
Simply unroll the crescent rolls and pinch together the seams to form a solid sheet. Top with the mustard or mayonnaise (optional), ham and cheese.
Starting at one end, tightly roll the sheet up in to a log.
Using a very sharp knife, slice the roll in to about 10 even pieces. Place on cookie sheet and bake!
