Easy Orange and Ham Pinwheels

Ever since I was a kid I've loved Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls! Ma was coming over for coffee so I decided to gussie them up just a bit and added a slice of ham to each roll-it turned out to be a good idea!

Anyone remember back when they used to have little bits of orange peel in the icing?
I miss that:@)

They unroll fairly easily. I cut a piece of sliced ham in half lengthwise, then folded it in half and laid it on the dough. Leave a 1/2" of the dough uncovered so you can pinch the roll back together. Then roll it back up, pinch and bake as normal.

Drizzle with icing before serving.
The ham pairs really well with the orange and we enjoyed these breakfast treats!
Have a happy day:@)

  6. Hi Lynn,
    are they really sweet, too? I could imagine them yummy salty with ham and cheese and orange peel but sugar????
    Sounds strange for me.
    Hugs and greetings, Johanna

  15. We used to make these all the time when I was younger. It makes me want to run to the store and grab a can and put in the oven. And the ham sounds like a delicious addition. :)
