Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • Dash of salt

  • 5 slices Swiss cheese
  • 5 slices Oscar Mayer smoked ham
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for topping)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until cheeses are melted and well combined.
  3. Add almond flour, baking powder, minced garlic, parsley, and a dash of salt to the melted cheese mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  4. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Remove the top layer of parchment paper.
  6. Lay the Swiss cheese slices evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  7. Lay the ham slices evenly over the Swiss cheese.
  8. Carefully roll the dough into a log, starting from one of the longer sides.
  9. Cut the log into 1-inch thick slices and place them on the prepared baking sheet, cut side down.
  10. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Brush the tops of the pinwheels with the beaten egg.
  11. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese over the pinwheels.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the pinwheels are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  13. While the pinwheels are baking, prepare the Pineapple Chili Glaze (see below).
  14. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving with the Pineapple Chili Glaze.
