Ham, Cheese, Sausage Rolls
Rolinhos de Fiambre Recheados - Another Portuguese recipe to add to your list.
This is such a quick dish to throw together, it's great as a snack or as a light meal, served with salad, homemade fries or rice.
And that is exactly what we had for dinner last night, my kids and hubby devoured these, they were amazed that something so simple could taste so good.
Hope you enjoy it too!
8 hotdogs (if your ham slices are small, then cut them in half, like I did)
8 slices of ham
8 slices of cheese (I used both American and Pepper Jack)
2 eggs, beaten
salt, pepper, nutmeg, garlic powder
In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the spices, mix well. In another bowl add flour and in another one, the breadcrumbs. We're going to use these to dip the ham rolls in.
Lay a slice of ham flat on a cutting board. Top with a slice of cheese. Squeeze some mustard onto the two, you don't need a lot but enough to hold everything together. Our mustard is going to act as the glue.
On one edge of the cheese slice, lay the hotdog and then roll up gently. Set aside and proceed with the rest of the ingredients.
What I love about this is that you can make as many or as little as you want. If you have more people just double the recipe, but you can also make just 2 or 3 of these if it's just for you.
Once all the rolls are done. Start by rolling in the flour, then dip in the egg mixture, then roll in the breadcrumbs. Now you'll notice that the sides will be open, I just dip those in the egg too and make sure to cover with breadcrumbs.
Fry in hot oil until golden brown. That's it.
You can also make these ahead of time and freeze them until you're ready to fry them up.
