Melchior’s Ham & Cheese Pinwheels

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Servings 12


  • 1 puff pastry sheet thawed (½ box)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 6 slices thin deli-sliced ham
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated
  • 3 tablespoons chives chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Unfold the puff pastry sheet on a piece of parchment paper. Combine the mustard, honey, and dill in a small bowl. Brush the honey mustard mixture onto the pastry sheet. Layer the ham slices over the length of the puff pastry. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the ham. Using the parchment paper to lift it, roll the pastry into a tight spiral. The roll can be placed in the freezer for 15 minutes at this point to make cutting easier, or if you’re in a hurry, just go for it. Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the log into 12 even slices. Place the pinwheels flat on a parchment-lined baking sheet, reshaping them a bit into rounds if necessary. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove and sprinkle with the chopped chives. Serve with additional honey mustard mix, if desired.

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
