Gluten Free Hot Ham and Cheese Rolls

by

First I’d like to say these were way better than I thought they’d be and I thought they would be pretty good.  Also, I was totally surprised at how good they were re-heated…..sometimes/often that is just not true with GF food, especially bread type items.  But these were just as good if not better re-heated.  I saw this on Pinterest, of course, and knew I had to make it GF.  The other thing I love about it is you can switch up the meat and cheese to so many different options.  I didn’t actually make it with ham, I used turkey.  But, I didn’t think hot turkey and cheese sounds as good as hot ham….  So on to the recipe…

1 recipe of your favorite pizza dough – this is mine or in a pinch this one.

3/4 pound deli meat, sliced thin but not shaved (I used turkey)
12 slices of cheese (I used cheddar)

Glaze:

1/2 cup butter
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire (USA Lea & Perrins is GF, other may be too)
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds

Heat oven to 375° F
Grease a 9X13 baking dish

Make glaze and set aside.

Roll crust to approximately 13X18 inch rectangle on an oiled sheet of parchment. Oiling is important so your dough doesn’t stick as you roll this up

Top with meat and then the cheese, filling the rectangle, you can overlap if needed.  I should’ve taken a picture of this.  Here’s an image from internet.  I didn’t put mine that close to the edge I left a little room

Starting on the longer side, begin rolling up tightly.  I used the parchment to do this.  I rolled and then used the parchment to make it as tight as possible. I would roll and then slide my hand across the parchment to set it against itself and then pull the parchment up and roll again, repeating this until the end.  (I hope this makes sense)

Cut into slices 3/4 – 1 inch wide.  Place in prepared pan.

Pour glaze evenly over the rolls.

You can cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours OR bake immediately. I did not try the make ahead, if you do, let me know how that turns out.

I baked immediately for 25-25 minutes, until golden brown.

I think if I refrigerated this I would let it come to room temperature before baking, if not you might need a longer baking time.

 

Enjoy!!   If you give it a try come back and let me know how it turned out.

 

Note:  if you use the pizza dough recipe that I shared, this is DF, EF and GF.  So if you used DF cheese this would be DF as well.

Favorite Find Friday – Candy

by

Favorite Find Friday2

One of my kids has been asking for candy corn.  Traditional candy corn is not gluten free nor is it dye free.    We don’t typically eat a lot of things with dye in them, sometimes we indulge, but one of my kids cannot eat dye.  I had been intending to search for some when I came across it at Whole Foods.  I grabbed a bag and my kids were so excited.  Everyone liked them and the ones who’ve eaten the traditional said they tasted just as good or better than the traditional ones.

Since finding these at Whole Foods I have since found an awesome place online that offers I really like this online store.  I am waiting to receive my first order right now. They carry an amazing variety of healthier candies made with all-natural ingredients — no artificial flavors, no artificial colors or dyes, no hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup.

Favorite Find Friday – Snacks, Crisps

by

Favorite Find Friday2

 

Hello!  Back with a favorite find….I know it’s been a while.

 

 

This is my newest favorite find.  Off the Eaten Path Rice and Veggie Crisps.

I got this 20 ounce bag at Sam’s Club for less than $6

The are are healthy and delicious snack that I and my kids all love.

They are made with rice, green peas, yellow peas and black beans.

They also contain 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein and less the 1 gram of sugars in a 1 ounce serving which is about 15 pieces.  The pieces are a little larger than a half dollar….uh, wait…..I just totally aged myself.  For those of you who remember half dollars, we understand one another!  For, those who don’t know, I’d say about the size of a mini rice cake, only very thin.

They are very crisp and not really flavor packed on first bite, but there’s just something about them that makes you want to eat more!

If you have tried them leave a comment and let me know what you thought.  If you haven’t try to grab a bag and give them a try, unless you can’t eat legumes and then come back and let me know what you thought!  These are GF, DF, Kosher, NF

 

Happy Gluten Free Snacking.
