$1.57 per serving ~ Ham and Cheese Twists

Tonight marks Puttanesca's return to creative cooking!

Ham and Cheese Twists ~ $1.57 per serving, $6.29 total
1 lb. pizza dough (I used storebought today but will share my homemade recipe later) ~$1.79
1 tbsp dijon mustard
Dried minced onion
8 slices deli ham ~ $2.00
8 slices swiss cheese ~ $2.50

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Roll pizza dough out into a large circle. Spread mustard on it, sprinkle with dried minced onion. Cut dough into 8 triangular pizza-style slices.
3. Fold up 1 slice each of ham and swiss and place at the wide end of each slice. Carefully roll up (filling will extend out of sides.) Place on prepared baking sheet, with the narrow tip on the bottom.
4. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Makes 4 servings

The Verdict
Both kids really enjoyed this and so did Jim and I. There's barely any leftovers and Jim and I are arguing over who gets to take them for lunch tomorrow! I served these with baby carrots and raw broccoli florets with ranch dressing for dipping. I'm already contemplating all the different combinations to make this again: turkey and cheddar, salami and provolone, barbeque chicken and monterey jack, breakfast sausage with scrambled eggs and muenster... Please comment with other combinations you think would work!

LOOOVE the breakfast sausage idea...

How about some vegetarian type options... like basil and mozzarella, replacing the dijon with some tomato sauce maybe? Think I might have to try that one actually... Mr. Wes would love it!
