These pinwheels were inspired by my trip to cooking school this fall. The chefs at cooking school grilled a piece of serrano ham wrapped manchego cheese and served it with our salad. It was amazing! I knew I had to come home and put my own spin on it. I decided to make these Serrano Ham & Manchego Cheese Pinwheels. They were fantastic. I had a hard time finding serrano ham, but I eventually found it at Sam's Club and World Market. Manchego cheese is readily available in the deli cheese section at the grocery store. These pinwheels were delicious and would be a great addition to your Super Bowl menu on Sunday.
1 sheet puff pastry sheets , thawed (1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package)
1 1/2 oz serrano ham
1 oz manchego cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface, and top with the cheese. Top cheese with serrano ham.
Starting at a short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into about 16 slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, onto baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Serve with ranch dressing or brown mustard for dipping, if desired.
