Ingredients:

 

Dough

  • 2 cups of part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz of cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 2 TBS of powdered erythritol (we used Swerve)
  • 3/4 TSP of orange or pineapple extract (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp active yeast for flavor (optional)

 

Filling

  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese or 1/4 pound thin sliced
  • 1/4 pound deli thin sliced ham
  • 1/2 pound deli thin sliced turkey

 

Dijon Butter Topping

  • 4 TBS butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBS Dijon mustard

 

Instructions:

  

First, you will want to add the mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and almond flour to a microwave safe bowl and mix together.

  

  

Microwave for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave for 30 more seconds 
or until cheese is melted and can be easily mixed.

  

Add your egg, yeast, powdered erythritol (Swerve), and orange extract. Mix well. Don’t be afraid to use your hands to mix if you need to.

  

Once everything is mixed together and it is a nice dough. Place it between two pieces of parchment paper or the non-stick sides of freezer paper. (we used freezer paper)

 

Roll out till approximately 1/4 inch thick.

  

 

Next, layer your ham, turkey and shredded cheese on top of the rolled out dough. 

  

  

Carefully, roll everything tightly into a jelly roll.

  

 

Keeping it wrapped in paper, place into the freezer and let chill for at least 30 minutes.

 

Once chilled, remove from freezer. Leaving the paper on Monte Cristo roll, slice into slices approximately 1 to 1/1/2 inch thick.

  

  

Remove the paper from each roll and place in a parchment lined pan. 

  

 

Slightly melt your 4 tablespoons of butter, mix in egg and Dijon mustard.  Spread over top of rolls.

  

  

Using some foil lightly cover Monte Cristo Roll-Ups. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 15 min until slightly brown on top. 

  

Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Serve with powdered Swerve dusted on top and a side of sugar-free jam for dipping.

 

Notes

  

These can be frozen pre-sliced and uncooked. When you are ready to cook them, remove them from wrapping and place in a pan. Cover with foil.

Place in a cold oven. Turn oven on to 350 degrees.  In 20 minutes remove foil and bake for 20 more minutes.

  

These would also make a great pizza roll-up
