Fathers Day is just around the corner, and my daughter and I are planning a yummy brunch for my husband. You see, he doesn’t like to get up before noon so there would be no point in making breakfast for him, but he loves breakfast food so we thought brunch would be a perfect idea. My daughter LOVES to help me out in the kitchen, so I’m always looking for easy recipes she can help me with. These Easy Ham and Cheese Pinwheels were one of the first things that popped in my mind when planning our Father’s Day Brunch menu. They are tasty, quick to make, and will be gobbled up by dad (and the rest of the family if he chooses to share). Want to learn how to make them? Keep reading!

Here is how to make my Easy Ham and Cheese Pinwheels:

You Will Need:

  • Crescent Roll Dough (I used the kind without seams)
  • Sliced ham (thin)
  • Shredded Cheese (any flavor you like!)
  • Honey Mustard

First, lay out your crescent dough. Cover with a layer of honey mustard. (You could also use regular mustard, or any other condiment you would like!). Then add a layer or ham, and then cheese.

Then, starting from one side of the dough, roll your pinwheels into a log shape. At this point I would let them chill in the fridge/freezer for about 1/2 an hour to let it firm up so cutting them will be easy.

Next, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Pull your log out and cut into 1/2″ pieces and lay them flat on your baking sheet. Once all are cut out and the oven is preheated, bake at 375 degrees for 10/15 minutes or until golden brown.

What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make. Other than pulling them out of the oven, my 7 year old did this all herself (with supervision of course) and she really feels a big part of making her Father feel special on his special day! 

These ham and cheese pinwheels will be perfect for any gathering or just for Sunday breakfast! They're so easy too.
