Perfect Italiano Ham & Asparagus Cheese Rolls
Perfect Italiano Mozzarella 100g
Perfect Italiano Parmesan 100g
Bread 4 slices
Chicken ham 4 slices
Asparagus 12 pieces
Thinly Sliced Carrot 5g
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Place chicken ham, followed by asparagus and carrot slices on top of each bread slice.
2. Sprinkle with half the Perfect Italiano Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, followed by salt and pepper to taste.
3. Roll up each of the bread slices by applying pressure to flatten the bread slightly.
4. Firmly secure by using toothpicks if needed.
5. Top with the remaining Perfect Italiano Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
6. Bake in preheated 180oC oven until cheese is melted and slightly browned on top.
The final creation. I enjoyed the crunch of the carrot and asparagus, while the cheese within provided slightly saltiness and easy stretch. Other than bringing to a potluck, I thought this could make an easy-to-takeaway breakfast to work.
For this recipe of Perfect Italiano Ham & Asparagus Cheese Rolls, adding some Perfect Italiano Mozzarella helps give a beautiful golden finish and melts beautifully for that traditional stretch. The inclusion of Perfect Italiano Parmesan, being matured for up to 18 months, guarantees a bold flavour and can be sprinkled on top for added bite and taste.
Perfect Italiano Cheese Gourmet Sausage Roll
I tried using a different ingredient the next time I prepared more rolls – Cheesy Gourmet Sausage Rolls.
The steps and instructions remain almost the same, just replacing the asparagus and carrot with a gourmet chicken sausage. So you can try your own variations at home and tell me how it goes.
