Greens and Ham Rolls

Here's another sandwich-less lunchbox idea, a play on the idea I shared on Tuesday, Pizza Rolls.  Instead of using pizza toppings, we used sauteed ham, kale and added some feta cheese.  The result?  R declared these his favorite!

Greens and Ham Rolls

1 pound whole wheat pizza dough (store-bought or you can make homemade pizza dough)
1/2 pound ham, diced
10 oz greens (we used kale, but spinach or chard would also work), chopped
1/4 cup water
dash of onion powder
dash of ground pepper
1/4 cup feta cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease the insides of two muffin tins.

In a large skillet, over medium heat, saute the ham for about 3-4 minutes, just to crisp it up a bit and release the moisture.  Add the greens, water, onion powder and pepper.

Cover the skillet and allow to cook 4-5 minutes.  Remove the lid and allow any leftover water to evaporate as it cooks an additional minute or two. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Divide the dough in 2 pieces and roll each into an approximately 8 by 20 inch rectangle:

On approximately 2/3 of the dough, spread half the toppings.  Top with feta, if desired.  Before rolling, wet your hand and spread some water on the plain dough (this helps the dough "seal" when you roll it up):

Begin rolling, from the side with the toppings, until it is fully rolled. 
Once rolled, use a serrated knife and gently saw off 1 1/2-2 inch pieces, and place them in a greased muffin tin.  Repeat process with 2nd half of the dough and remaining toppings.

 Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until tops brown slightly: 

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 24.

Just like the pizza rolls, you can freeze these in bulk and have them on hand for easy lunch box packing!

I know it might sound hard to believe, but my boys actually loved these more than the pizza rolls...and I loved that they were eating greens and happy.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
