Ham and Cheese Roll

An easy and creative way to serve a normal yeast bread is by doing it in a roll with your favorite fillings. One common and mostly available in our fridge are ham and cheese, so I guess these could make our usual bread a twist.

Well, of course, you can use any other filling of your choice =D

Yeast Dough Ingredients:
  • 1 pack active dry yeast (1 tablespoon)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (soft)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling Ingredients:
  • Sliced Ham
  • Cream Cheese
  • Cheddar Cheese - Shredded
  • Mozzarella Cheese - Shredded
  • Coriander leaves
  • Salt and pepper

  • Breadcrumbs for sprinkle

Procedure for yeast dough:
  1. In a small bowl, mix together yeast and warm milk. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl mix together butter, sugar, egg, vanilla until well combined.
  3. Add yeast mixture (Yeast mixture is ready when the yeast forms bubbles).
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours and salt.
  5. Create a well in the middle of the flour.
  6. Pour in the yeast mixture.
  7. Mix all together. You can use electric mixer or just hands and form a ball. At this point, you can add flour or milk to achieve the proper texture in case you need adjustment.
  8. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  9. Lightly flour the bottom of a large glass bowl; place dough in bowl and cover with a clean damp kitchen towel or with plastic wrap; let stand until doubled in size, about 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.

Procedure in Ham and Cheese Roll:
  1. Preheat oven for 365 ºF (185 ºC).
  2. Flatten yeast dough in rectangular shape for about 12 inches long x 8 inches wide, with half inch thickness.
  3. Alternately top with the fillings.
  4. Gently roll the dough with its topping.
  5. Sprinkle breadcrumbs all over the roll.
  6. Cut the roll for about 2 inches thickness. This will make 6 mini rolls.
  7. In a muffin pan, sprinkle breadcrumbs in each holes.
  8. Put the mini rolls in each muffin hole.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bread is baked.
  10. Served and enjoy!
