Easy Appetizer Recipes: Quick Ham and Cheese Spiral Appetizers

Having homemade frozen appetizers in the freezer can be a host’s secret weapon when guests drop by. Michele McAdoo for the Kraft Kitchens shares a simple and delicious recipe for cheese and ham spiral appetizers that are easy to make and freeze beautifully.

1 egg
1 Tbsp. water
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 of 17-1/4-oz. pkg.), thawed
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
8 slices OSCAR MAYER Deli Fresh Shaved Smoked Ham

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 29 min
Servings: 12 servings, two spirals each

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Beat egg and water until blended; set aside.
Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface.
Roll into 14×10-inch rectangle; cut in half lengthwise.
Brush both pastry halves lightly with some of the egg mixture.
Sprinkle 3 Tbsp. of the cheese and the pepper evenly over one of the pastry pieces; cover with ham slices.
Place remaining pastry piece, egg-side down, over ham.
Roll gently with rolling pin to seal.
Brush with additional egg mixture.
Roll up tightly to form a 14-inch log, starting at one of the long sides. Cut log crosswise into 24 slices. Place, cut-sides down, on parchment-covered baking sheet.
Brush with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp. cheese.
Bake 12 to 14 min. or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
