Apple Butter and Ham Roll-Ups

This sounds like an odd combination of ingredients but it works out so beautifully! As roll-ups they make delicious appetizers or a pretty lunch presentation. If you don't want to hassle with rolling them out, try these same ingredients cooked like a pannini or grilled cheese style.

Apple Butter and Ham Roll-Ups

9 Slices white bread, crusts removed
3 Tbsp butter, at room temperature
3 Tablespoons cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp apple butter
9 Slices ham (thinly sliced)
9 Slices cheddar cheese (thinly sliced)

With a rolling pin, flatten each piece of bread as much as possible.
Spread one side of each piece with about a teaspoon of butter. On the other side spread a teaspoon of cream cheese and top that with a teaspoon of apple butter. Top the apple butter with a slice of ham then a slice of cheddar. Roll up, jelly-roll style, with the buttered side out and secure each roll with toothpicks. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees until lightly browned 10-12 minutes.

Cool for 3 to 5 minutes. Slice each roll crosswise into 4 pieces. Serve warm.
