I had the idea for this dish, bought the ingredients and then almost didn’t follow through with making them. I’m glad I did though. The kids all loved them and so did Jim and I. They were easy and something a little different. You can’t go wrong with the combination of ham, broccoli and Swiss cheese.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 lb. ham, cut into slices (I had the Walmart deli cut it on 2)
- 1 bunch broccoli, cut into spears
- 2 Tbs. butter
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 2 cups milk, warmed
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the broccoli in a small amount of water until it’s tender, about 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan. Whisk in the flour and cook for a minute or two. Gradually add the milk, whisking until smooth. Stir in the Dijon mustard and the cheese. Let the sauce cook over medium heat until thickened and the cheese has melted. Season with salt and pepper.
Assemble the rolls by putting a few broccoli spears in the middle of a slice of ham and rolling it up. Place in a 9×13 pan. After all the ham rolls are in the pan, pour the sauce over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
