Ham and cheese rollup

How to... make easy ham & cheese rollups

The kids are back in school and that means it's time to break out the sack lunches. Ham and cheese rollups are delicious and easy to prepare, and the kids are sure to love them. Watch out, PB& J, you've got some lunchtime competition!

What you'll need:

  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of pickle relish
  • 1 whole grain tortilla
  • Thinly sliced ham
  • Sliced swiss cheese
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tomato

tortillaStep 1: Mix and spread

Mix the mayo and relish in a small bowl. Then spread the mixture onto a whole wheat tortilla. Next, lay out the ham and swiss cheese on top of the tortilla. Make sure to lay out the ham and cheese evenly -- this will make rolling the tortilla much easier.

Step 2: Add the remaining ingredients

Chop up one avocado and one tomato and arrange them on top of the tortilla. It's a sneaky way to get some fruits and vegetables into kids' bellies. You could add baby spinach and sliced bell peppers as well.

Step 3: Pack it up

Once the ingredients are added, roll up the tortilla. Fold up the sides as you go, exactly as you would fold up a burrito. Finally, wrap the rollup in aluminum foil, throw it in your kid's lunch box and you're ready to go. Yum!

It looks so easy to roll, that must be why the video doesn't show it. It shows the first fold and then cuts away. With the tomato and avocado inside you cant' roll it. That could also be why the picture on the page shows a different wrap. Nice try, tho.
