I’m so excited about one of my latest grain-free discoveries — a fast, easy way of making the Kidlets’ favorite quesadillas or, as shown in the lunch above, ham and cheese grain-free pinwheels.
In This Bento: Grain-free Ham and Cheese Pinwheels, Dried Apple Chips, Blueberries and Grapes, Baby Carrots. Stored in an Easy Lunchbox
The egg-based and grain-free tortillas are from Stupid Easy Paleo and they are THE CLOSEST THING we have found to real tortillas. And, believe me, we’ve tried everything. EVERYTHING … including plaintain tortillas.
(Um. Yeah. Plantains. Never again … those things are WORK.)
These are foldable, rollable, and are even able to fool the Kidlets into thinking they are once again back into the world of flour and corn tortillas.
If you too have been looking for a great (and fast) grain-free tortilla, these are it! And, if you’re interested in transforming them into pinwheels, it’s equally simple.
Easy Grain-free Ham and Cheese Pinwheels
- Make the tortillas according to the Stupid Easy Paleo recipe.
- After you flip the tortilla to allow the uncooked side to cook, sprinkle the cooked side with your preferred shredded cheese.
- Lay a slice of ham or other deli meet on one half of the cooked side.
- Remove from the pan (each side only has to cook for a minute) to a plate or cutting board.
- Allow to cool just long enough that it no longer burns your fingers (VERY important … says the woman who learned the hard way), and then, starting with the side that has the ham on it, roll the ham, cheese, and tortilla up.
- Insert a toothpick to hold the rolled tortilla until it has cooled and set.
- Use a sharp knife to slice the pinwheels.
- Enjoy or put into your favorite lunchbox!
Pssst … if you want more grain-free lunch ideas, you can either browse through my bento gallery or you can look at this week’s menu-plan for all of our planned school lunches.
