Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup shortening

1 egg

3/4 cup milk

FILLING:

2-1/2 cups ground fully cooked ham

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 egg

2 tablespoons prepared mustard

2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

1/4 teaspoon pepper

CHEESE SAUCE:

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

2 cups milk

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

How to make it

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and milk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 12 times. Roll into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle.

Combine the filling ingredients; spread over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 1-in. slices.

Place cut side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and white pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted. Serve with ham slices.
Yield: 12 slices.
