History in the Kitchen: WWII - Day 4
For Day 4 of the homeschool co-op class I'm teaching, we learned about the importance of meat in wartime and why it was so scarce.
We made the delicious Hot Ham Rolls, a variation of the Beef Biscuit Rolls I made before. It came from a sweet, tiny cookbook called 120 Wartime Meat Recipes. I really loved it, and so did most everyone in my class! It weirded a few of them out that it looked so much like cinnamon rolls when they came out of the oven and we smothered it in a white sauce. And it really does!
At home, I made it again for supper and made a cheese sauce by adding shredded cheddar cheese to the white sauce. It was a delicious variation!
|Biscuit dough rolled flat, ground ham mixture spread all over and then it's all rolled up.|
I like to slice rolls like this with dental floss! It's nice and strong and never breaks.
|Ready in the pan. They're so pink and pretty!|

This is a photo of the one I made with cheese sauce.
