How to Cook Ham and Cheese Rolls

  • Remove the toasted skin of the tasty bread slices by using a knife and cutting out the edges.
  • Using a rolling pin or a cylindrical jar or glass, roll the bread until it becomes flat. This is done to close the pores and so that is can be easily rolled.
  • On a clean flat surface, lay a piece of flattened bread and put on top a piece of ham and cheese stick.
  • Then roll the bread like a jellyroll with the ham and cheese inside. Secure the roll with 2 to 3 toothpicks on both ends and the center.
  • Prepare 2 plates containing beaten eggs and the other, bread crumbs. Dip the rolls in the beaten eggs first until well coated then dredge in bread crumbs. Do the same procedure on the rest of the rolls.
  • Heat oil in a pan deep enough for frying the rolls. Then fry the rolls until golden brown.
  • Upon serving, remove the toothpicks first. Then serve with mayonnaise with ketchup.
