Hot Ham and Swiss Pinwheels

School is starting for us next week and I can’t believe it. We are so ready for it to be back in session. We all know how crazy life gets when school starts and I am all about the quick and easy meals. My boys enjoy cooking so much in the kitchen that I gave them a day two nights a week to make something that they love. We always make these hot pinwheels at our house. We have stuffed them with pepperoni and made pizza pinwheels, but our favorite variation is these hot ham and swiss pinwheels.

You can’t beat the ham and melty swiss cheese combo. Plus– that garlic butter poppyseed topping! It is amazing! I have one of our families favorite secret ingredient in the topping, and these truly are the best. These are so perfect for a quick meal or a party appetizer favorite!

How do you make hot ham and swiss pinwheels?

  1. Start by unrolling your croissant dough and divide it into 4 sections. Pinch the seams to seal and spread about 1 heaping teaspoon of dijon mustard on top.
  2. Add 2 slices of swiss cheese and smoked ham on top. Roll up each rectangle and seal the seam.
  3. Cut each roll into 3-4 slices. Place on a greased 8×8 inch pan. Brush the tops with the buttery garlic butter poppyseed spread and bake.

How long does it take to bake a pinwheel?

What is the best ham to use?

A high-quality deli ham is best to use. We like to use smoked ham, but it is whatever your family prefers.

    I tried this recipe and it tastes great! But one problem I had is the pinwheels got pretty flat after cooking. They never looked as “straight” and strong as the pictures on this website. I wonder if there are missing secrets or notes in this recipe. (I tried to seal the bottom of the pinwheels with the idea that cheese won’t melt and leak out to lead them to be flat, but it didn’t help that much.)

    These were absolutely delicious, I made them already once this year, and I’m planning on making them this weekend to be served with tomato bisque. And they are so easy to make. The only problems I encountered were my own silly fault. I didn’t have Worcestershire Sauce when I made them and thought, oh hey we use soy and that interchangeably on burgers, that means it’ll be fine. No, don’t sub out soy! I made it a little too salty by doing that, Worcestershire wouldn’t do that. Also, I didn’t roll my pinwheels quite tight enough, but this time I’ll know better! Can’t wait to try these again, with the right sauce this time. XD I’m sure they’ll be a hit with the family. Gonna have to at least double or triple the recipe probably though. Wish me luck.
