Pillsbury Ham and Cheese Breakfast Rolls

Good Morning! I woke this morning to realize that all our regular breakfast staples were gone and I had nothing to make us. So, I went to the misc. drawer and found Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers biscuits. And saw some cheddar cheese and leftover sliced ham.

Pillsbury Ham and Cheese Breakfast Rolls

-Pillsbury rolls/biscuits

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Squish and flatten a can of Pillsbury biscuits or rolls into a rough rectangle on a baking sheet.
    --I used Flaky Layers, but any would do.
3. Spread a medium layer of shredded cheese over the dough.
4. Place approximately 6 slices of ham on top of the cheese, enough to cover the dough.
5. Sprinkle more cheese on top, if you wish.
    --We always wish for more cheese, so, obviously more cheese happened.
6. Roll it up.
    --You can roll it on the long side or the short side. The thicker the dough the fluffier the rolls will be.
7. I did not do this, but would recommend putting your baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes or so.
    --Enough to make the roll easier to cut.
8. Take a bread knife (or a serrated knife) and slice your roll into pieces. If you did this without freezing it first, don't worry that the cheese goes everywhere. Just reassemble.
9. Spray a new baking sheet (or your current one) well, as these will stick if you do not.
10. Cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees, or, until they turn a golden brown.

Also, Tom and I are sick. At least we had a good breakfast to chase the Dayquil.

This recipe is as simple as can be. I kind of winged it, but this is what I did.

So tell me...
Anything you would add?
Have you used Pillsbury rolls to cheat your way to easy food?


  1. oh my gosh this sounds yummy and so easy! My family (and I) would love this. I'm pinning this

    1. It was so simple, and I hope you enjoy it too!

  2. This looks so good! I wonder how it would turn out if you cooked the whole thing first and then sliced it?

    1. Good point, that would make it easier to cut. But might take longer to bake through, and not be done in center.

      Let me know, would be great if that works :-)

    2. Looks fantastic! You're a good improviser!
