Savory Spiral Stuffed Rolls
recipe and image from My Kitchen Cafe
1 recipe roll dough, using half wheat flour
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
2 cups chopped ham
1 1/2 cups finely chopped broccoli
2 cups shredded cheese (Swiss, Cheddar, etc)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup finely chopped green onions
1. Follow the recipe for your roll dough until the dough has risen. Punch down the dough and roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 1/2-inch thick (using the french bread roll recipe, I rolled my dough to about 13 inches by 17 inches).
2. In a small bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Spread the rolled out dough with the butter/cream cheese mixture. Top with the ham, broccoli, cheese, Parmesan cheese, and green onions.
3. Roll the dough up, pinching the seam to seal. Slice the roll into about 1-inch segments.
4. Place the rolls on a lightly greased baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Let the rolls rise until nearly doubled and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbly.
*I am sure I have previously mentioned how I am horrible at baking. I don't know what it is but they just never turn out quite right. Well, the picture of these looks amazing, and the description does as well. Mine were good but they definitely didn't look as wonderfully appetizing as MKC's picture. I still really liked them though and served them with a big salad.
