After-School Snack Time!! ((Hot n’ Ready Ham Roll-ups))

After-School Snack Time!! ((Hot n’ Ready Ham Roll-ups))

It is official, school is back in session. I have to admit – for the first time in several years, I am sad summer break is over. We had a great ((and very busy)) summer. The kids attended a few camps, we enjoyed our annual trip to Table Rock and we even managed to squeeze in a trip to Branson with my mom and dad.

But, in a blink, we jumped from packing and unpacking suitcases to gathering school supplies and packing backpacks. The boys attend a local private school that is a blend between homeschool and traditional school and their first in-class day was Thursday.

This year, Kade & Brod are in middle school, Shep is in 4th grade AND Gracie starts kindergarten ((say it ain’t so!!)). The guys leave the house about 7 and get home after 4 — what a long day!

I new they would be ready for a pick-me-up when they walked in the door and these roll-ups did just that.

The smell of warm bread baking in the oven greeted them as they walked in the door. Immediately, I was met with questions: “is that dinner?” “what is that?’ “can we have some now?” and then came the “wow!! thanks mom!!” and my fave — “THESE are SO good!!”.

Three simple ingredients are all you need to make this yummy “welcome home from your school day” snack! ((I always keep a few cans of crescent rolls or sheets on hand for such a time as this.))

image

I made two loaves of ham & cheese roll-ups by laying the crescent dough sheet out flat, covering it with a single layer of ham and placing three cheese sticks ((evenly spaced)) on top and rolling the whole thong up into one giant loaf.  Each loaf can be cut into 5 even ((2½”)) sections.

Salami, pepperoni, or turkey & mozzerella, havarti or swiss would all be great twists on this simple snack. So just use what you have on hand!

These roll-ups are sure to please! After-school snacks like this one are sure to make long school days a little more tolerable, wouldn’t you think?

((The class pets agree with me!))

Ingredients
  1. 2 cans of crescent dough, I prefer sheets
  2. 16 slices of ham deli meat
  3. 6 cheese sticks, I used a cheddar/jack blend
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll the crescent sheets and line each sheet with a single layer of deli meat. Place the cheese sticks on top of the deli meat ((spaced evenly)).
  2. Starting with one of the two shorter sides, roll the ham and cheese crescent up and carefully place on the parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  3. When placing the second roll-up on the sheet, make sure there is 1" to 2' of space between the roll-ups.
  4. Place the roll-ups in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow them to cool 5 minutes before slicing. Each loaf can be cut into 5 servings.
  5. Serves 4
Notes
  1. Try salami, pepperoni, or turkey and mozzarella, havarti or swiss for a change!
