Winter break came and went like a flash of lightning. Still trying to get back into the groove of things. Along with getting back on schedule I’m also trying to get my freezer stocked for the rest of the school year. My kids are not so much “into” pb & j sandwiches, so it’s a challenge to think creatively and outside the box… well, lunch box that is. Here is an easy freezer-friendly recipe my kids, and even I enjoy! Ranch turkey roll ups! They can be made in bulk batches (just double or triple the ingredients) and frozen for easy lunch packing. Note: defrost overnight and pop on toaster oven for approximately 10-15 minutes before sending off in school lunch. =)
Ranch turkey roll ups…
-1 pack refrigerated crescent rolls
– 4 to 6 slices of deli turkey
– 4 to 6 slices provolone or muenster cheese
– 1/2 pack dry Ranch dressing mix or homemade equivalent
Unroll crescent dough and keep intact (don’t separate triangles, keep seams together). Spread out turkey and cheese on dough and sprinkle ranch dressing on top. Roll up dough and sprinkle ranch on the outside. Wrap up in Saran Wrap and place in freezer for approx 1 hour. Unwrap and cut into pinwheels. Bake at 375 for 12-15 min. or until dough is lightly golden. I also made a beef and bean version (pictured in back). Same technique just different filler (taco seasoned beef, diced onions, can of black beans and shredded cheese).
