on some days things just need to be a bit quicker than usual! If the day, or indeed the whole week, has been really stressful, then I just have to get something hearty on my plate – otherwise things could go awfully wrong and there might be casualties 😉
That’s why today I want to share with you a real magic recipe for such days: These delicious pastry slices stuffed with ham and cheese and topped with a crispy poppy seed layer are cooked faster than you can say ‘ham and cheese rolls with poppy seeds’ – and sooo yummy! Since they are so easy to make they’re great for sharing and make wonderful finger food for parties … try it out!
Ham & Cheese Rolls with Poppy Seeds
for about 2 servings
- 1 pack storebought pizza dough
- 100g ham (depending on taste, cooked or raw ham)
- 80g grated cheese
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 1 tbsp sweet mustard
- 1/2 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp ketchup
Preheat oven to 180° C and slightly grease a deep baking dish.
Unroll the pizza dough and evenly spread the ham and cheese over it. Now roll up the dough tightly from the longer side. Carefully cut into thick slices with a knife – approx. 12 – 14 pieces – and put the slices with the cut side up in the baking dish.
Now melt the butter and mix with the remaining ingredients. Pour this poppy seed mixture over the rolls (with a spoon or pastry brush) and bake in a hot oven for about 25 minutes until crisp. Allow to cool for a few minutes and serve!
