Scoop the egg mixture out in a large bowl, and place the ham slices on a wooden board.


Place a spoonful of the mixture on the ham slice, and roll.


Pack the filled ham rolls tightly into a baking tray.

You can increase this recipe, simple double the filling and the ham slices, and use a large baking sheet. It needs to be big enough so that the ham rolls lay in one single layer.
