I've probably made 10 batches of these in the past month for various parties. We never have any left over to brink back home. I typically leave off the mustard and the sesame seeds. After trying several shredded cheeses (cheddar, swiss, velveeta), my family has determined that the sliced american cheese is their favorite, which is great for me because it is easier working with the sliced cheeses when rolling. I've also found that the rolls are much easier to slice if they are placed in the freezer for a few minutes. Each time I have made these I have attempted to slice them thinner and thinner so there will be more to go around, but it does take away from the ham and cheese flavor if they are sliced too thin. I would also suggest using a greased cookie sheet, the cheese really sticks to the pan.
These were a hit! I doubled the recipe and made the first batch exactly as posted. The second batch I used deli sliced chicken breast with hot pepper jack cheese and southwestern mustard. Both types were gobbled up at a tapas party and the recipe was requested all around. Lucky for us there were a handful left and they made a great lunch, heated in the microwave for about 15 seconds. These will be made again...and again in various combinations. Thanks again for sharing!
