Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

What do you do with left over Christmas Ham? Casey and I made ham and cheese pinwheels.

We used this recipe as a guide. We did two batches, that ended up being slightly different but they turned out delicious in both ways!

Started by preheating the oven to 375 and then dicing the ham. Roll out the pizza dough and brush with Dijon mustard. Then top with ham and cheese. We used shredded cheddar cheese! Next roll up tightly into a log. The recipe said to have a triangle piece of dough. After having a log of doughy ends the first batch we figured out why the triangle was important LOL. Once the log was rolled, cut into each pin wheels. Batch one were small and skinny wheels and batch two had thicker wheels, about 1 inch.

We grease a baking sheet and placed the wheels out evenly. We melted butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard to create a glaze. We topped each wheel with the glaze and then baked for about 20-25 minutes. Since the first batch was skinny, the glaze poured out and burnt a bit on the pans. They still tasted delicious and were crispy. But this prompted us in the second batch to cut the wheels thicker and place them closer together. But we didn’t top with glaze until after they were done baking. This batch became a bit fluffy but still tasted good. Both ways, we would make again it just depends on what we would be in the mood for. Batch one was the perfect crispy snack. Where batch two was more of a filling meal.
