April’s Recipe ReDux theme is “Limpin’ Along For Lunch” and we were encouraged to help break out of the lunch rut by coming up with some tasty new ideas. Gabby and I have not cooked together in awhile since we finished our ecookbook and I this seemed like the perfect opportunity to jump right back into it! I wanted to come up with a quick and easy yet also yummy and creative recipe that she could make with my help. A few weeks ago, at Easter dinner, my father had introduced Gabby to the delicious combination of ham and tomato sandwiches and she really enjoyed it. We decided to put a new twist on this combo by making a pinwheel style sandwich incorporating those same ingredients. Gabby enjoyed slicing the tomatoes and cutting the crusts off the bread. We used soft whole wheat bread, which easily rolled out flat with the rolling pin. Soft cheese wedges made a perfect spread to go with the ham and tomato slices. The roll ups came out great and Gabby really enjoyed making/eating them and was proud of her first recipe of 2016. So was I!! We hope you will try them out and check out some of the other great lunch ideas created by the talented Recipe ReDux group.
2 large slices of soft whole wheat bread
2 spreadable cheese wedges (we used Laughing Cow Light)
1 medium, roma tomato sliced thin
2 slices (2 ounces) of lean ham (we used Trader Joes nitrate free ham)
Cut the crust off the bread slices and roll them out flat using a rolling pin.
Spread each bread slice with a cheese wedge. Layer the ham and then tomatoes on top. Roll up each sandwich and cut into 4-5 pieces. Serve immediately.
