Maple Ham and Cheddar Pinwheels

I recently was asked to bring something to a potluck lunch. Since I still can’t bake in our oven at home, I knew I had to make something I could bake in the office kitchen. Something quick I could prep the night before. So I spent about an hour looking through Pinterest until I came across pinwheels. Most were spinach, but I saw one with lunchmeat ham and cheddar.

I can do better, I thought. So, I bought a ham steak and went to work.


Maple Ham and Cheddar Pinwheels

One cup of water, one tablespoon of brown sugar, one tablespoon of white sugar, and half a pound of diced ham steak into a pan and we got ourselves the makings of good food. Not to forget the two tablespoons of maple syrup I dropped into the mix as well. As the kitchen filled with the glorious scent of maple, I rolled out the crescent roll dough and smothered it with shredded cheddar cheese.

Ham mixture all boiled down until it was sticky, then I put that on top of the cheese. 


Nom, nom, nom. If the dough wasn’t raw, I would have ate it just like that.

Rolled up the mixture the long way, wrapped it in plastic wrap and let it stay in the fridge overnight.

The next day I cut it up into one-and-a-half slices, placed them on a baking sheet, and then baked them at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Basically until they were golden brown and cooked through. So good. I should have made more.
