Love an Italian hero? Try these rollups without the bread

Lots of kids (and adults!) enjoy the famed Italian cold-cut sandwich. But, did you know that it’s just as easy and fun to eat without the bread? You can eat this at home or on the go. This is a fun treat for lunchboxes or lunches at home. From Health-Bent, here is the recipe for Paleo Italian rollups.


  • Sweet/honey ham
  • Capicola ham
  • Salami
  • Tomato, sliced thin
  • Banana peppers
  • Spinach or other lettuce
  • Dried oregano
  • Olive oil
  • Mayo & mustard


  1. Use the largest coldcut (probably the honey ham) for the outside layer.
  2. Overlap that coldcut about 1.5 inches, making 2 rows of 4.
  3. Make sure it’s overlapping, then layer your other meats on top.
  4. Squeeze on the mustard and mayo, but only on one half. This will be the half that is going to be the inside or middle of your roll.
  5. Layer your thinly sliced tomato, the banana peppers and spinach (and any other toppings you choose) over the mayo/mustard.
  6. Other adds that would be yum – olives, red wine vinegar, cucumbers, onions
  7. Roll from the filling side first as tight as you can.
  8. Wrap in parchment or wax paper, like a burrito, and off you go.
