Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

My kids came up with the name for this recipe 30 years ago. It's my favorite way to use ham. The roll-ups are made like cinnamon buns, only they use baking powder biscuit dough.

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups cubed fully cooked ham (1/4-inch pieces)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon steak sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk all at once and stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto well-floured surface and knead gently 8-10 times. Roll into a 12x11-in. rectangle. In a bowl, combine the ham, onion and mustard; sprinkle over dough. Beginning with a long side, roll-up jelly-roll style. Cut into 1-in. slices and place, cut side down, 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. For sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Cook and stir until thickened. Add steak sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and cheese. Stir until melted. Serve with roll-ups.
