Sausage and Cheese Rollups

The concept of sausage and cheese and onions “IN”  a bun  haunts me.  I once went to a restaurant where all they served was “stufffed sandwiches” and salads. It was great.  Super delicious, but then I wasn’t worried about gluten or cross contamination either.

Fast forward to me not having any fun food, or  party food to eat due to extreme allergies.. and we end up with a level of quirky, creative desperation.  Here’s today’s edition of quirky lunch. Wow! they were good.

Roly-Poly Lunch Rolls

  • Brown  sausage with chopped onion.
  • Make one recipe of the wonder dough.     Roll it out into a rectangle. Use a little potato starch to keep it from sticking  to everything too much. I rolled mine out on parchment paper sprinkled with potato starch.
  • Spread the cooled sausage and onion mixture.rolypolyrolls-002
  • Sprinkle it with shredded mozzerella cheese. Add a sprinkle of parmesan if you  feel like it.
  • Roll up the dough, carefully including the filling.

Make 1 –  2  inch slices and place them, cut side up (like cinnamon rolls) in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan.rolypolyrolls-005

Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes. Let them cool. Serve with a big green salad.

One is missing, because I ate it before I remembered the camera. LOL. It was realllllllly good. rolypolyrolls-006

Other filling ideas:

  • Boar’s head pepperoni, with pasta sauce + shredded cheese = rolled up pizza fun
  • Cubed ham and shredded cheese.
  • Cubed SPAM and shredded cheese
  • shredded chicken and cheese

I heart rollwiches

Anytime we go out to lunch with the girls… I am faced with about 15 wrap sandwich choices or maybe a deli sandwich that I can deconstruct, sometimes soup.. or a bowl of fruit. Bleah. Expensive food I can’t eat anyway.. so why try?

Who needs to *eat out* when *eating in* is tastier? Well.. I do like to get out, but *eating out* is not really an option anymore. I guess I could take my lunch and just order for the wheat eaters…. hmmm… I should try that.

Anyway. I heart rollwiches. Sometimes known as “wraps”- they always come with a wheat tortilla. Now they don’t have to!! (see my previous post on tortillas).  I love my new food.

  • 1 GF tortilla
  • 4 thin slices Boar’s Head Hard Salami
  • 4 slices Boar’s Head Pepperoni
  • handful of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • bits of butter lettuce to taste

Assemble everthing except the lettuce and zap it in the microwave until the cheese is slightly melty. Place lettuce on top, and roll as tightly as possible. Let cool a little.

Eat.

It can’t be easier. It can’t be tastier. I just hope it’s portable for roadtrips.
