Yummy Recipe!

Last night for dinner I made one of our family favorites. My kids told me that I should "post the recipe on my blog so that everyone can make these!" I will humor them, besides, they are way tasty! I don't really know what it is technically called, but we call it "Those Ham Roll Up Thingies." Here is the recipe and if any one thinks of a better name, please let me know! They are super tasty, easy, and pretty (I think!). We usually just have them with a baked potatoe and green salad. Last night was no exception!

Ham Roll Up Things

About 14 slices ham (I usually use Black Forest, but have used regular also. I usually go to the deli and have them slice it about the thickness of bologna.)

1 pound Mozzarella Cheese

1 small can pineapple tidbits

About 1 head broccoli (I have also used frozen broccoli spears.)

Slice the cheese so that you have 14 "sticks". You want them the length of the cheese, just 1/2 by 1/2 strips. You won't use all the cheese-yet! Cut the broccoli into spears. Lay out a piece of ham, then put a broccoli spear pointing inward on each short edge. Put a cheese "stick" on top of this and roll the whole thing up. You can use toothpicks to hold it together if you need to, just take my advice and remember to take them OUT before digging in!!! Put in a baking dish. Repeat with all the ham slices. I can cram about 14 rolls in a 9 by 13 pan. Grate the rest of the cheese on the top of the rolls. Then dump the can of undrained pineapple over the top. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. SUPER YUMMY!!
