"I LOVE these. I make them and can't stop eating them. Even like to eat them cold out of the fridge. I don't like making them much , they are a tad time consuming! But Mmm!! Prep time includes the dough rising and rolling out and filling to the best of my ability. And the amount you get ... who knows!!! It depends on if you make them small or larger."

"Made the dough in the bread maker. I should've rolled the dough out thinner (though not sure I could have) as they were pretty doughy. That being said, my dough rose and rose for a long time as I was distracted by my toddler and 6 month old, so maybe that is why? I wish I would've put more filling in each one, but was afraid to overstuff. I added cheese to each one. Pureed the ham in a small processor and diced onion. I tasted one which was pretty good and the rest are in the freezer. Neat, different way to use ham leftovers. Edited to add: Great out of the freezer.Just wrapped frozen roll in paper towel and heated for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes in the microwave. I will definitely use this recipe for ham leftovers in the future! Would be good with pepperoni and cheese as well I bet!"
"This is very good, but I used Pillsbury cresant rolls, and saved a lot of time. I also used 2 cloves garlic, 1 small bell pepper and sauteed them with the onion. Also added shredded cheese.
You can't fit a lot in each roll, and it's a little hard to keep the filling from falling out, but it was worth saving time for me."
"Very tasty and a great way to use up Christmas ham leftovers. I carmelized my onions and used at least 3 times what the recipe called for. I ran out of eggs so I skipped the egg wash and they still came out fine. Fantastic hot or cold with mustard. Yummy!"
"I just read about these in a forum about using up ham and whipped them up in my bread machine. I used half butter/short. I ground my ham/onion together in the food proc. I just cut my dough into about 28 pieces and rolled each in a circle. I just had two and can attest to their being delicious! The dough is really tender and the ham/onion flavor is great. The egg wash really gives an attractive sheen. GREAT way to use up ham, Marlene!"
"Awesome recipe. I add a little thyme to the filling... you can change up the flavours too by using smoked or unsmoked ham. Also delicious as a whole loaf using sausage, mushrooms and onions as the filling. Roll the dough out into a huge rectangle, spread filling on top and roll up into a spiral, seal and place in a bread pan. Takes a little longer to bake, but SOOOO good for breakfast! :D"
"I have been wanting to use this recipe for a year now & finally got the chance to do it after Christmas dinner. I used my own dough recipe (Recipe #293120) just because it's all in my memory. I used 3/4 cup whole wheat flour in place of some of the all-purpose. I put the ham slices in my food processor to grind it up nice & small then stirred in the onion & about a Tablespoon of Sambal Oelek instead of salt & pepper. These were a huge hit with the family but using the empanada cutter was hard on my hands & time consuming so I did it for one half of the dough recipe & then made one large hand crimped calzone with the second half of the dough. That's in the freezer to be baked sometime soon. This was a great way to use up the leftover ham so no one feels like they're eating the same thing over & over. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Marlene!"
"I made these for a new-years party this year. I didn't have any all-purpose flour, so I used whole-wheat. & I added 2 Tbs honey to the egg wash. They were fabulous! Everyone loved them. I will definitely make them again to have around for lunch."
"Takes time to make but worth the effort. The filling was a little bland - added chopped onions. Maybe some spice next time. VERY good to freeze and reheat as needed, in fact they taste even better after being frozen and reheated, a little doughy which I like."
"These turned out great...the whole family loved them, even my super picky 7 year old! I made a couple of small changes....used olive oil instead of margarine (didn't have any), and subbed half of the flour for whole wheat. I omitted the onions because we don't care for them and replaced them with some shredded cheese. Next time I will skip the cheese because no matter how tightly i pinched them, the cheese leaked out of nearly all of the rolls during baking. I got 40 rolls out of this recipe, and even though I filled them with as much ham as I could, I still had a lot of fillin left over...at least 1/3 was leftover. I will make these again...I have already been thinking of some different fillings I could try. Thanks!"
"M'larkay~I was stymied as to what to fix for dinner tonight, ehh chicken, ehh beef, ehh Italian....but this little treasure was there, and it was perfect! I followed the recipe completely, only changing ingredients that were suitable substitutions so all my family could enjoy these. I used *Earth Balance Buttery sticks*, unsweetened soy milk, and eggreplacer. They turned out so delicious and outstanding they all want me to make again next week! Thanks! You and your sister must be great cooks!"
"Delicious! I'm eating one right now. I made them a tad on the big side (rolled the dough out to about a 5" diameter circle and then closed) and only needed to use about 1 lb. of ham. Ended up with about 16 rolls. Next time, I might add a bit of cheese, but they are perfect as-is! Thank you!"
"Yummy! These are so good! I did not have any ground ham so I used Diced Ham Dinner Starter (oamc) recipe#12052 instead. I left out the onions for half of the rolls as the kids don't care for them. I sprinkled sesame seeds on the ones that included onions so that I could tell them apart. Half of these were eaten right away and the other half are waiting in the freezer for a quick meal in the future. I have added this recipe to My OAMC pork cookbook and My OAMC dice ham dinner starter cookbook, thanks for sharing :)"
