Baked Spinach-Stuffed Ham Rolls

I remember when I was a kid having ham rolls stuffed with spinach and cheese at a friends house, and I loved them.  I raved about them, to my mom, to my friend’s mom, to my friend, to my siblings, and to anyone else who had ears.  I think they all thought I was a little nuts.  What kid, kid who doesn’t even like ham really, falls in love with it when someone stuffs something green inside? Well, I was weird like that.  And since then, I’ve thought of those ham rolls and even told Russell how great they were and how I never got the recipe., even though I asked, because who gives recipes to kids.

I’ve thought for years that I would recreate what I had that day but never bothered for some silly reason.  I’ve looked through a few cookbooks and food blogs, hoping to find a recipe that would do, but I got nothing. Finally, I said the heck with it, I know how to stuff some spinach into ham, and that is what I did.  And, yes, it was everything that I remembered.  And no one should have to go another day without an official recipe for these.  They are perfect for any meal.  I had them for lunch, but I think they would be marvelous for breakfast alongside some hash-browns.

    Hey, this looks really tasty. It looks as if it would make a great breakfast dish. Its interesting, I am a huge Sound of Music Movie fan and in the Sound of Music dinner table scene when maria sits on the pine cone they are eating mashed potatoes with stuffed ham rolls, lettuce, dishes of croissants and glasses of water. Many people as what were they eating in the sound of music dinner table scene? Its just mashed potatoes and stuffed ham rolls. I am defintely going to try these out. They look tasty in the movie and even tastier here.
