Can you believe August is right around the corner? I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer as much as we have. We’ve spent many so many days outdoors — between park days, pool days, beach days and scout camp days, we’ve been packing lots of coolers for lunches on the go.
Earlier this summer, Carl Buddig and Company asked me to partner with them as a Buddig Deli Mom and create some meals and snacks with deli meats that aren’t sandwiches! Last month, I shared our ham and cheese quesadillas (still a big favorite with my kids!) and this time, we decided to mix some of our favorite flavors together for a sweet, savory treat.
Ham, Apple, & Cheese Roll-Ups
- Apple (I used Fuji)
- Buddig Premium Black Forest Ham
- Sliced Provolone cheese
- 1 TBSP maple syrup
- 1 TBSP water
With a mandolin or flat-blade food slicer, slice the apple into very thin slices. Mix the maple syrup with the water in a small bowl.
Lay a piece of Provolone on your work surface. Next, lay a piece of Buddig Premium Ham on top. Use a basting brush to apply a very light layer of the maple water (it’s yummy, but it also helps prevent the apple slices from browning too.)
Layer apple slices on top of the ham slice. Brush again with maple water.
Gently roll the stack up with the Provolone cheese on the outside. Secure with a toothpick and serve, or pack in a refrigerated container for a not-a-sandwich lunch on the go!
It only takes a little creativity to make more than a sandwich, and we’re thinking about more meals and snacks to make with Buddig meats! Did you know that Carl Buddig & Company is family-owned?
