When I have leftover ham I like to make the Cheesy Ham & Broccoli Braid and/or the savory Spiral Roll recipe below. You can certainly substitute turkey or chicken for the ham, if that’s what you have.

Thanks for sharing another great recipe, MelsKitchenCafe.com!

Ham & Broccoli Spiral Rolls Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)
Prep Time: 1 hr | Cook Time: 20 mins
Yield: 12-16 rolls | Serves: 12-16


  • 1 recipe roll or french bread dough or pre-made roll dough (yielding about 12 rolls)
  • 12 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 c chopped ham
  • 1 1/2 c finely chopped broccoli
  • 2 c shredded cheese (Swiss or cheddar, etc)
  • 1 c Parmesan
  • 1 c finely chopped green onions


  1. Follow the recipe for your dough until the dough has risen.
  2. Punch it down and roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.
  3. In a small bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese.
  4. Spread the butter/cream cheese mixture onto the rolled out dough.
  5. Sprinkle the ham, broccoli, cheese, Parmesan cheese, and green onions onto the dough.
  6. Roll the dough up (like cinnamon rolls), pinching the seam to seal.
  7. Slice the roll into about 1-inch segments (I like to use floss to cut rolls of dough).
  8. Place the rolls on a lightly greased baking sheet (or use a silicone baking mat) and cover with plastic wrap. Let the rolls rise until nearly doubled and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbly.
  9. I usually bake all of the rolls and freeze the leftover ones.

    Can you freeze the rolls prior to baking? If not, what do you suggest for reheating the rolls after they are froe?

      I haven’t tried freezing the rolls before baking, but I’m almost positive that it would work out well. Cover with plastic wrap before the rolls begin to rise and put them in the freezer. Once they are frozen, you can transfer them to a resealable freezer bag. Then I would let them thaw, come to room temperature and rise before baking according to the directions in the recipe.
      To reheat baked rolls, you could just microwave them. But even better would be to cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven until warmed through.
