Ham and Cheese Twists

Makes 16 sticks

With Brody and Blake over I wanted something they could quickly eat for lunch or have as a snack if they were hungry. These ham and cheese twists were perfect as they could stop at the island and have a quick bit and then continue doing what they were doing. These can easily be made as an appetizer and served with my zesty ranch dressing. Either way kids will love them. With school starting soon these can be sent with them for lunch.
