Super easy ham and cheese scrolls recipe

Posted in Recipes.

My kids love ham and cheese but if there’s one thing that will boomerang its way back home again, it’s a ham and cheese sandwich. An awesome solution – same ingredients, different carrier – I give you ham and cheese scrolls!

Yeah, they’re rustic looking – but I assure you they’re super quick to make and so delicious they’ll be gobbled up in no time. Make the dough in your food processor in a few quick whizzes or alternatively, by hand.

Ham and cheese scrolls ingredients

  • 40g butter, cubed
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ¾ cup milk + a couple of tablespoons extra for milk wash
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce
  • 100g thin sliced or shaved ham
  • 1 cup grated Colby cheese
  • poppy seeds


  • Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof baking paper.
  • Into a food processor, tip the flour and butter. Whiz for a few seconds until the mix resembles fine bread crumbs.
  • Add the milk and whiz until the mixture starts to ball together into a dough.
  • Tip the mixture out onto a floured or lightly greased surface and knead until smooth. Roll out into a long rectangular shape, about a centimetre thick.
  • Spread the dough rectangle with pizza sauce. Layer with ham slices and top with grated cheese.
  • Gently roll the rectangle onto itself from the long edge.
  • Cut slices three centimetres thick, laying them cut side up on the prepared tray, a few centimetres apart from each other.
  • Brush the tops and sides of each scroll with milk and top with a sprinkle of poppy seeds.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden in colour. Leave on a wire rack to cool – though I also highly recommend eating them warm. YUM!
