Heavenly Ham Rollups with Egg and Cheese Salad

This easy recipe is ideal if you want to make ham-based appetizers for a dinner party, if you are catering for a buffet, if you want to present your cheesy egg salad in something other than a sandwich form, or if you fancy an unusual salad for dinner. Ham salad recipes often contain eggs or cheese because these ingredients are good together.

The rolled-up slices of ham contain a mouthwatering combination of cheese, egg, celery, and green onion in a mustard mayonnaise sauce. The green onion and celery add crunch and you can add any kind of cheese to the egg salad. The ingredients list suggests a mozzarella and cheddar blend but this is only one idea and there are plenty of other kinds of cheese you can experiment with, any of which would work nicely. If you want to add some chopped sundried tomatoes or a pinch of chili powder to liven up the filling, go for it and make this dish uniquely your own.

The ham rollups are wrapped in green onions strips or, if you have no green onions, you can use chives instead, or even leave the wrappings off altogether. Present the ham rollups seam side down. These are for eating with cutlery rather than the thinner type of rollups that you can eat with the fingers.
