Hot Ham and Cheese Pinwheels











Why have a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch when these are just as easy to make.  They are insanely delicious and perfect for an appetizer or whenever you choose! Hot cheesy goodness with layers of black forest ham rolled up in buttery dough.  And that glaze…OMG it’s out of this world good!   

Hot Ham and Cheese Pinwheels


2 tubes crescent dough sheets

20- 22 slices Black Forest Ham thinly sliced 

Slices Swiss cheese thinly sliced 

Slices of white American cheese thinly sliced

1 tablespoon chopped parsley for garnish




1/2 cup butter melted

2 tablespoons brown sugar 

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 

1 tablespoon poppy seeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. 

















Open the tubes of crescent dough and stack one on top of the other. Press the sides, top and bottom together to make one rectangle.  Press out the dough until it’s about 9 x 13. 

Lay 6 slices of Swiss cheese on the dough, leaving a 1/4 inch margin at the edges. 












Top with the ham (fold the slices over if needed) so that you get plenty of ham in your roll ups.  I like to add pepper to my ham but it’s optional.











Lay the American cheese on top of the ham. 











Start rolling up the dough with the contents inside, starting with the longest side. Roll as tightly as possible. Pinch the ends closed. 








 Roll it as tight as you can, making sure you don't lose any filling.










Slice dough into at least 12 pieces.  









 Carefully put the pinwheels in the dish, evenly spaced, being sure to pinch any seams that may have separated. 











Combine the butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and poppy seeds in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk until the butter is melted and the glaze is smooth and combined. Generously brush over each pinwheel.












Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.










Remove from oven after cooking time and let cool slightly before serving. 

























·         Use around 20-22 slices of Black Forest Ham. Be sure to get the thin sliced ham!

·         Most recipes for these call for one can of crescent dough sheet. Trust me, use two.

·         Swiss Cheese – Use thinly sliced Swiss cheese to pair with your ham. Top that with white cheddar.

·         Dijon Mustard – Add a touch of zesty flavor with a bit of this delicious mustard.
