Ham and Cheese Pinwheel Sandwiches




Can you believe that the delicious ham and cheese pinwheels above started out like the picture below??





Well they did and the pinwheels are super easy to make Simply follow the recipe below.

2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
12 thin slices of good-quality deli ham (about 10 ounces)
2 cups freshly grated gruyere, Swiss, fontina, sharp cheddar, or similar melty cheese (about 5 ounces)
Chopped fresh parsley, thyme, or chives (optional, for serving)



Lay a large piece of plastic wrap on your counter (I pressed two long sheets together at the edges to create a single larger sheet). Unfold the first sheet of puff pastry in the center of the plastic, then roll it into a 10×12-inch rectangle. Spread with 1 1/2 tablespoons mustard, leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides. Lay 6 ham slices on top, overlapping as needed. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese.
Starting at the long (12-inch) edge, roll the puff pastry into a log. Trim the ends so that they are even, then tightly wrap the log with the plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry and remaining mustard, ham, and cheese. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Once the log has chilled, using a sharp, serrated knife, carefully cut each log into 1/2-inch-wide slices. (If each log is 12 inches, you will get 24 rolls from each one). Arrange the rolls 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the puff pastry is light golden brown and the cheese is hot and bubbly, about 18 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with chopped thyme, parsley, or chives as desired. Let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
