Do you ever just need a little something to tide you over? A small bite on the run while your tummy’s growling? Or maybe the kids just ran in from playing and you need something with sustaining energy STAT so they can get back to their fort or sandbox.
This has been a favorite snack of mine for a long time. It is super easy to pull together, taking maybe 30 seconds depending on how tightly and neatly you want to roll this. You can use whatever type of lunch meat and cheese is available too, don’t limit yourself to just turkey and colby. You could also make several, cut into bite sized pieces, and spear with toothpicks for an effortless hor d’ourve everyone will love!
I had turkey breast, and colby cheese sticks. You can definitely use slices of both too, or sliced cheese and chunks of deli meat. It would be a good use for leftover Thanksgiving turkey, Easter ham, or whole cooked and shredded chicken. This snack has tons of protein to get you through to your next meal, pair with fruit for a well-rounded nosh.
Ingredients (per rollup):
- 1 cheese stick or slice (~1 ounce)
- 2-3 slices of turkey, ham, roast beef, etc.
Step 1: Lay down the meat, add the cheese towards one edge. Wrap the cheese in the meat, rolling the other edge under. Serve with cut up fruit or raw veggies and dip!
