The Superbowl is coming and it is snack food time! Our family always has a little party featuring our favorite snacks. Wendy usually makes my favorite, Mexican Layered Dip. And, her husband, who is a great cook, makes a variety of good snacks. I usually add some dishes of my own and it is a lot of fun.
Last Saturday, after going on another hike in the snowy woods, we came back hungry and decided to make Ham and Cheese Whirls. We were talking about what a great Superbowl snack they would be. The recipe is actually, from our older sister, Rebekah. Everyone worked together, and we had these delicious treats on the table in no time.
Ham and Cheese Whirls
Biscuit: (or substitute 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup finely chopped cooked ham
- 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
To make biscuit: Mix dry ingredients. Then add milk slowly.
For filling: Mix cheese, ham, celery and mayonnaise.
Roll out biscuit into a rectangular shape. Spread on filling. Roll up and cut into rolls on greased pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
First we put the dry ingredients into the Kitchenaid. (You could also use frozen bread dough, or make up some bread dough in your bread machine.)
Next we added the milk slowly and mixed until it formed a soft dough.
When the rolls were cut, they were placed on a cookie sheet. We put them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 375 degrees. My nephew thought they looked so good that he wanted to try one before we cooked it!
