  1. Preheat oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to 40 x 32cm. Spread a layer of pasta sauce over it, leaving a 1cm border around the edges. Arrange the ham evenly on top, then scatter the grated cheese over.

  2. Starting at one of the short ends, roll the pastry up as tightly as possible. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or so.

  3. Take a very sharp knife and cut the roll into 12 equal slices, laying them flat on 2 non-stick baking trays as you go. Brush each pinwheel lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle over the herbs. Bake for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Super easy and fun to make with kids. Great taste too, these didn’t hang around very long and we’ll definitely make these again.

Made these with red pesto, ham and grated mozzarella - yum! Rolling from the short end didn't seem like we'd get very many, so rolled the long side and then sliced into 14 swirls. Took about 17/18 mins @ 180C

I had taken out a pack of puff pastry and not used it for the coffee morning I hosted, so when I found this recipe I decided to use it for the kid's tea. So glad I stumbled across this recipe, these where delicious! Rather than ham I chopped up some cooked chicken and added some sweetcorn - but you could put anything on them. I will be making these a lot!

I've made these with Marmite and cheese which were just so nice but haven't made these yet. We also came up with pesto and parmesan or chocolate spread or maybe crushed pistachios and honey as alternatives.

Have a kids party coming up and trying to make lots in advance...would these be good to freeze? If so then at what point?

Hi there, thanks for the question. Yes, you can freeze these once sliced before baking. Bake from frozen, allowing a little extra cooking time.

I am organising a joint party for my kids....both in December eeeek!!! My son just started school and daughter just started nursery so loads of kids to invite...this recipe seems ideal but can this be preprepared...then popped in the freezer?
