Ham and Cheese Turnovers


This is one that I got from the moms4moms group that meets at Faith Community Church in Brookhaven.  It really is very easy and a great one for nights when you don’t feel like putting much effort into cooking but can’t go out to eat.

Ham and Cheese Turnovers

Heat oven to 400

Roll one 1 lb package of refrigerated pizza dough into a 14-inch circle.  (OK, so this is how it is so easy and yummy….did you know that you can buy pizza dough from the pizza place?  I go to Abruzzi in Brookhaven and ask for 1 large ball of dough and it costs $2.65.  They give it to me in a little box and I go on my way—how cool is that!  It makes these so much better than using the dough from the grocery store)

Cut the dough into 8 triangles.

Stack onto each triangle:

  • slice of deli ham (need about 8 oz, thinly sliced from deli)
  • thin slice of Swiss cheese (need about 4 oz thinly sliced)
  • thinly sliced onions

Roll the dough up starting at the wide end and working towards the point, rolling the dough up around the filling.  Some of the filling will stick out the ends.

Transfer the rolls to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (you will want to do this- makes clean up so much easier…trust me—the first time I made them I did not use parchment–MISTAKE!)

Bake until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.

You can whip up a salad to go with it too.  For a fuss-free dinner salad get:

  • 1 small head romaine, torn to pieces

Mix together

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

Toss the dressing with the romaine.

Dinner is served!
