With the hustle and bustle of summer, our lunches were getting pretty mundane and automatic. Peanut Butter Jelly. Ham Sandwich. Call 'er done.
But the cooler weather and back-to-school planning had me take a pause to come up with something new for the boys.
We had been enjoying the ease of baby dill pickles from Aldi all summer. So it finally hit me that we could take this fun snack a step further. Think church potluck pinwheels!
To make these, I layered lunch meat, cheese, and mayonnaise. Then I placed a baby pickle onto top of the stack and tightly rolled the mayo, meat, and cheese around the pickle. Next, I sliced them and put them on crackers. Because honestly, they don't stay together well despite the mayo. Original recipes call for cream cheese which is more adhering. But once they were settled onto the crackers, the kids had no problem eating these. Graham asked for them for dinner the very same day. SUCCESS!
Here are the ingredients we used:
Hormel Naturals Lunch Meat (ham, turkey, salami)
Cheese Slice (Tofutti American)
Baby Dills (Aldi)
Crackers (Town House Original)
For those of you who guessed the cheese on Facebook, it was Tofutti. Miles acquired a taste for this as a toddler, and it's his favorite. Graham will eat it, too. :) Since he drinks almond milk, I don't worry about the soy in Tofutti. There ya have it!
