Hot Ham Dips
1 tsp garlic powder
6 pretzel slider buns or 4 ciabatta rolls, split *I used homemade buns, recipe below
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 pound thinly sliced ham
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef consommé or beef broth *I used a packet of Charlie’s Pride Au Jus mix
1/2 tsp garlic powder *I omitted
In a small bowl, melt butter in the microwave. Add 1 tsp garlic powder.
Place rolls on a baking sheet; brush cut sides with garlic butter.
Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
In a large saucepan, combine
broth consommé and 1/2 tsp garlic powder mix Au Jus according to package directions (you just add water!); bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low.
Place ham into beef consommé and garlic Au Jus. Heat ham for 30-60 seconds, until slightly warm. Using tongs, place ham on rolls. Serve sandwiches with remaining broth for dipping.
- 2 Tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
- 1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Warm Water
- 1/3 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Egg *or egg replacer; I used Ener-G
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 Cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Stir in the oil and sugar, and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.
- Add the egg replacer, salt, and 3 1/2 cups of flour. Combine until it forms a soft dough. Add the additional 1/4 cup of flour as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands (if you need a little more, that is okay too). Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes or so.
- Divide the dough into 16 pieces, shape each into a small, thick disc (about the size of a biscuit – a regular not a Grands!) and place them on silicone mat lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
- Preheat oven to 425ºF. Lightly cover the balls of dough and let them rest for about 10 minutes (or longer if you wish).
- Pop them in the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on a wire rack.
Verdict? As I said, these are DELISH! Everyone loved them. Mr. Three, of course, had his without ham, and garlic butter. So, yes, he had a plain roll, with plain rolled up ham on the side. Don’t ask. These are definitely a keeper, and will be made again soon. They made a great dinner, but would also be great for parties!
