These Ham Cheese Muffins are tastier than a ham cheese sandwich. I used frozen yeast rolls. They make the muffins’ crust more like a buttery pizza dough.
I am a hot sandwich kind of girl. My favorite sandwiches are cheesy gooey warm and crusty. I also love bread and all sorts of bread, especially yeast bread. You will find several bags of frozen yeast rolls in my freezer at any given time. Frozen yeast rolls taste like homemade yeast bread or pizza dough which is delicious. Some of my favorite easy recipes using frozen dinner rolls are these Ham Cheese Muffins and my Pizza Muffins.
I am sharing my Pizza Muffins recipe today over at Princess Pinky Girl Blog. The pizza muffins are easy to make and remind me of Pizza Hut’s buttery deep dish crust. Because they sit in individual muffin tins, the butter gets all over the edges, and the crust comes out buttery and crispy. If you have time, stop by Princess Pinky Girl.

How did I make these Ham Cheese Muffins?
They are made similar to my pizza muffins. I merely added twelve frozen yeast rolls to a cupcake tin. They need to thaw out about thirty minutes. Next, just cut them into four equal parts. I cut them lengthwise and then across. Place them back into the muffin tins and allow them to rise three more hours. This recipe is super easy but does take time for the rolls to rise. After the rolls are double in size, about three hours, I brushed the rolls with butter and sprinkled them with garlic. I topped the muffins off with chopped ham and grated cheese. These Ham & Cheese Muffin’s crust is like the pizza muffins. They are both made in individual muffin tins that allow butter to get all over the edges. The crust comes out buttery, crispy, garlicky and delicious. They would be perfect for lunch, a snack, or even breakfast.
