Yield: 1 Dozen
  • 12 slices white bread
  • ¼ cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 12 slices ham
  • 4 ounces Velveeta cheese (or any quick melt), cut into ¼-inch x 3-inch strips
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • oil
  1. Trim edges of the bread and with a rolling pin, flatten until very thin. Spread a thin layer of jam on the top side of bread slice. Arrange a piece of ham over jam. Place cheese strip at the edge of bread and roll bread into a log to enclose filling. Press lightly on seams to completely seal (or secure with toothpicks and remove when ready to dredge in bread crumbs). Repeat with remaining bread slices.
  2. In a bowl, combine eggs and milk and whisk together until well-beaten. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs and Italian seasoning.
  3. Dip bread rolls in egg mixture and roll in bread mixture, patting down crumbs to fully coat.
  4. In a wide, thick-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inch deep of oil. Place prepared bread rolls seam side down and fry until golden, turning on sides as needed. Remove from pan and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve hot.
