Ham Rolls Ingredients

  • 250g sliced ham
  • 150g mozzarella, sliced
  • 2 g (2 tsp) dried oregano
  • 3 eggs
  • 3g (1/2 tsp) salt
  • 1 g (1/2 teaspoon) black pepper
  • Pinch of curry
  • 100g (1 cup) breadcrumbs
  • 40 g (1/3 cup) grated parmesan
  • 160g (1 cup) flour
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)

Method

1. Prepare the Ham Rolls

  • Begin by laying 2 slices of ham on top of each other.
  • Place a slice of mozzarella on top and sprinkle with dried oregano.
  • Carefully wrap the ham around the cheese to form a roll.
  • Repeat this process with the remaining ham slices and mozzarella.

2. Freeze the Rolls

  • Place the prepared ham rolls in a freezer-safe container and freeze for approximately 25 minutes. This step helps the rolls hold their shape during the breading process.

3. Prepare the Breading Station

  • In a bowl, whisk together 3 eggs, a pinch of curry, salt, and pepper to create an egg wash.
  • On a separate plate, combine breadcrumbs with grated parmesan cheese.
  • Place flour on another plate to create the flour coating.

4. Bread the Rolls

  • Take each frozen ham roll and coat it in flour, ensuring it’s fully covered.
  • Dip the floured roll into the egg wash, ensuring it’s coated evenly.
  • Roll the egg-coated roll in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the crumbs.
  • Repeat the process for a double breading, ensuring a crispier exterior.

5. Fry the Rolls

  • In a pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  • Carefully place the breaded ham rolls into the hot oil, frying for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on all sides.
  • Once cooked, remove the rolls from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Conclusion

Congratulations! You’ve successfully created crispy ham rolls that are both crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. These delicious appetizers are perfect for any occasion and are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy them hot with your favorite dipping sauce for an unforgettable culinary experience.
