Ham and Broccoli Cheese Spirals

September 28, 2010

I found this recipe a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the weather to cool to try it.  I had spiral ham in the freezer from Easter and an awesome use for the dinner roll recipe.   How perfect was that?

When I told my husband that I was planning on making it, he was lukewarm about it until he ate it. He can’t stop raving about it.

I made it with swiss cheese but I plan to use another cheese next time I make it. 

I’m thinking of Italian Sausage and mozzarella cheese.

This is so easy to make and versatile.  The cheese options are endless.  So are the meat options.

I did make my own bread using the dinner roll recipe.  But you don’t have to.  These make about 18 hearty  rolls.  The rolls freeze well, and can probably cut into quarters for an appetizer.

Ham and Broccoli Cheese Spirals

  • 1 whole Batch Of Roll Dough That Yields About 12 Average-sized Dinner Rolls (or Prepackaged Dough)
  • 16 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 t Granulated Garlic
  • 1-½ C Finely Chopped Broccoli
  • 1 C Finely Chopped Green Onions
  • 2 C Chopped Deli Ham (or Other Leftover Ham)
  • 2 C Shredded Cheese (whatever cheese you like-the possibilities are endless)
  • 1 C Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Follow the recipe for your roll dough until the point where the dough has risen. Punch down the dough and roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.

    In a small bowl, cream together cream cheese and garlic. Add the broccoli and green onion.  Mix well.  Spread the rolled out dough with the cream cheese mixture. Top with the ham, and the cheeses.  Roll the dough up, pinching the seam to seal. Slice the roll into about 1-inch segments. Place the rolls on a lightly greased baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. (I greased the sheet with olive oil.)  Do not over crowd the sheet.  I suggest that if you do put all the rolls on one sheet, adjust your cooking time.   Let the rolls rise until nearly doubled and then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbly.
