Ham & Cheese Biscuit Roll Ups
submitted by Sydney Ramirez
I was digging through the refrigerator trying to
come up with something this weekend without going to the store and the pickings
were slim. I put this together and my kids were going on and on about how
good it was, and the different ways we could make it.

2 cans of biscuits ($.33 each)
Sandwich ham (1 slice per two biscuits - wafer sliced ham, 1 pkg. is $.59)
Shredded cheese (1/2 bag would be generous - $1.00)
Open the tube of biscuits. Take two at a time and roll
them out fairly thin on a cookie sheet. (No need for extra flour.)
Place a slice of ham in the center and add some shredded cheese. Roll up
the biscuit and dip the rolled biscuit in the shredded cheese. Place the
roll cheese side up and bake until browned slightly, about 10 to 12 minutes.
I used an insulated cookie sheet, so I didn't have to worry about the bottoms
burning. Serve alone or with a side of deli or regular mustard.
2 cans of biscuits make 10 roll ups (10 biscuits per can). Adjust
according to the size of your family. A smaller version of this could also
be used for appetizers using only one biscuit per roll up.
You can also use this idea with other fillings, such as:
Chicken and broccoli with Swiss cheese
Hot dogs or polish sausages and sliced cheese (pigs in a blanket)
Ground beef and spaghetti sauce with mozzarella cheese sprinkled with parmesan
cheese & garlic powder (rolled calzones)
Corned beef, roast beef or ground beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese
Roast beef, smoked cheese and deli mustard
Scrambled eggs and cheese
The possibilities are endless. Also consider filling them with butter and
rolling them in cinnamon sugar for a simple treat in the morning with coffee or
a snack for the kids.
I have six children that range in age from 18 1/2 to 1 1/2 years old. The
baby loved this as much as my picky 10 year old. I'm sure this isn't the
first time someone has discovered this, but I guess I never realized how
versatile biscuits could be!
