Ham Pinwheels Recipe

Pinwheels in the oven! Yummy!

This is an easy and creative way to use up leftover ham or really any meat.
You'll need

For dough -

1) Mix 2 cups all purpose flour with 4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt (I whisk together)

2) Cut 4 Tbsp shortening into flour mixture until crumby looking.  Gently and quickly mix 1 cup milk into mixture. Handle as little as possible to get a more tender crust.

3) Roll dough out into a rectangle, approximately 10 inches by 14 inches.

4) Spread evenly a half pound to one pound of ground or finely chopped ham, diced onion (as little or as much as you like), and a cup or more shredded cheese.

5) Roll up as if making cinnamon rolls.

6) Slice into 1/2 inch slices and place on a greased baking sheet.

7) Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 mins. Cheese should be melted and crust will be golden brown.

Serves 4 to 6 people as a main dish.
