Ham and cheese rolls.....

I usually make sweet rolls but I decided to make some savory ones for RG's tea a couple of days back.

I used the last tube of Pillsbury crescent seamless dough that was in the fridge. These little tubies are really a godsend.....they are so convenient and easy to use!

I rounded up a few ingredients that I usually have in my fridge - ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, turkey ham & some spring onion.

After I unrolled the dough, I spread 2 tablespoons of ranch dressing evenly onto the sheet. Then I spread loosely but evenly a handful of shredded ham, followed by 1/2 cup of cheese and then finished off with 2-3 tablespoons of finely chopped spring onion.

Roll up the dough gently but firmly starting from one of the shorter ends of the dough. If you want all the pieces to look pretty.....trim off the 2 uneven ends of the dough. Then cut the remaining dough into 12-14 equal pieces.

Place the cut pieces on parchment paper on a baking tray. Pop the tray into the preheated oven at 350F for about 18-20min or until golden brown. Halfway through baking....I dropped more shredded cheese over the top of the rolls....greedy!

Gobble them up when they are still hot, right out of the oven!!! Hee hee....ok, if you've got leftovers, you can put them in the refrigerator and then pop them into the toaster oven to heat/crisp for the same fresh-out-of-the-oven taste!


  1. WoW! These seem easy to make and they look delicious! Is the pastry a sweet one or flaky?

  2. hi busygran,
    yes, they are really super easy to make...assuming you've the ready-made frozen pastry. the pastry that i used is not particularly sweet or's kinda plain in taste. so the sweetness/saltiness will have to come from the stuffs that you add. yes, the pastry is a little flaky. over here in the states, pillsbury or any other brands would have many different types of pastry depending on what you want to make i.e. flaky type, bread type, buttery type etc. not sure if you can get them in singapore??
