Recipe: Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

This recipe for Ham and Cheese Pinwheels started out quite differently… I had planned on other ingredients and when I started to make them… I realized I was missing a number of ingredients.. so I surveyed the options in the fridge.. and Ham and Cheese Pinwheels were born.

The recipe started out from something I saw at Pillsbury… I liked the idea it used Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Rolls…. I wanted something quick and easy for a Saturday night movie night.


I used Garlic Butter Crescent Rolls, but you can use the Original variety if you prefer.

I used Colby Jack cheese, Swiss would be a terrific option also.

You must press the dough together well…. as they say.. don’t do as I did… I didn’t press it well and when I went to roll it… frankly … it was a pain in the neck…. BUT I do have to emphasize.. they came out great…

Use a serrated knife to slice the dough… use a saw-like motion to cut.. it will be easier that way.

So let’s get to it… it was a great little snack… great for watching the Big Game on TV … a terrific menu idea for family night.

I hope you like them as much as we did!
