We love homemade ham and cheese roll-ups from scratch at our house, but they can take a long time to make from scratch. That’s difficult when you have a busy homeschool schedule and the kids’ many activities each day!
Quick five-minute meals are a “must” for our family. One of our favorites is making lazy ham and cheese roll-ups. No need to make the dough or sauce from scratch, and get dinner from ingredients to table in just around 15 minutes (that includes 10 minutes of baking time)
Easy Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups Recipe
- One can refrigerated crescent rolls or biscuits
- Grated cheese
- Ham lunch meat or leftover ham
- Alfredo or cheese sauce
Chop ham into small squares.
Unroll crescent rolls and sprinkle ham and grated cheese onto them. Roll the crescent rolls and bake according to instructions on the package (around 10 minutes).
While baking, warm up sauce and use to top completed rolls, or make a homemade cheese sauce.
Homemade Cheese Sauce
If you’d rather have a homemade cheese sauce to go with your easy ham and cheese roll-ups, here’s a great recipe:
- 8 tbsp (1/2 cup) butter
- 8 tbsp flour
- 4 cups milk
- 1/2 tbsp chicken boulian or flavor base
- grated cheese
Melt butter on medium temperature stove. Mix in the flour to create a very thick paste.
Add milk and stir constantly (do not walk away at all or it will burn on the bottom). Continue stirring and as the sauce thickens, add the boulion.
Keep stirring until all lumps are out and sauce begins to boil. Continue stirring constantly while sauce boils for at least 1-2 minutes (be careful of splashes). Then add as much grated cheese as desired.
When the biscuits come of out the oven, serve with a ladle of cheese sauce on top.
