【Ham and cheese bread rolls】
After I made the Dinner Rolls , my son suggested to stuff the dinner rolls with some ham and cheese. So these ham and cheese bread rolls have become his recent favorite food for breakfast.
Prepare time: 20 minutes

1: Place all ingredients of Ingredient 1) inside bread machine, then add all ingredients of Ingredient 2) and 3) (Picture 1). Select “Dough” and start program. When the stirring begins, open the lid and quickly add Ingredient 4) butter and corn oil (Picture 2). Close the lid and let the program continue until finish. The entire process takes about 2 hours.

Cut cooked ham and cheese into 14 cm long strips (24 for ham and 12 for cheese) (Picture 4). Roll each dough into 1 cm diameter long log. Combine 2 pieces of ham strips and 1 cheese strip together (Pictures 6). Wrap one dough log around the ham and cheese strips for the top to bottom (Pictures 7).
3: Arrange rolls on parchment paper lined baking sheet (Picture 7). Cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 1 hour until the volume doubles.

5: Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
