Only 3 ingredients for this elegant finger food! No one will guess that the "pate" is just ham and cheese. Prep time includes 8 hours chilling time.

Spectacular recipe! Not that difficult to make, but sooo impressive looking. I've made this dish several times now, occasionally making a substitution or two along the way. I have substituted cooked shrimp for the cooked ham, and also tried this with several different kinds of cheese including mozzarella, cheddar, brick and parmigiano reggiano. All good, but the ham & swiss seems to work the best. Cheers! The Gallumphing Gourmand

  6. Wrap each side of the breast around the roll and place in a buttered roasting pan, seam side down.
  7. Assemble all the breasts the same way.
  8. Place the stuffed breasts side by side, so that they fit snugly together.
