This is a really fun way to make sandwiches for kids. Not only do they enjoy getting involved in rolling out the bread, spreading the avocado mix, adding the layers and then rolling them up, but they love eating and sharing them as well. These sandwich rolls can be eaten without toasting after they have been assembled, which is the way my boys prefer for me to send them to school in their lunch boxes. However, if they eat them at home, they would much rather have them toasted: the cheese melts and there is the plus of a more welcoming and toasty smell in the kitchen, as they sit down to eat.

Ingredients

  • 1 ea. Avocado From Mexico, mashed
  • 1 t. mayonnaise
  • 2 t. yellow mustard
  • 1 t. sauce from chipotles in adobo sauce, optional, or more to taste
  • 4 ea. sandwich bread slices, whole wheat or white
  • 4 ea. slices of black forest ham, thinly sliced (or ham or turkey of your choice)
  • 4 ea. slices of muenster or Monterey Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. To make the avocado sandwich spread: In a bowl, mash the avocado and mix with the mayonnaise, mustard and the sauce from the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, untilcompletely smooth and combined.
  2. To assemble the sandwich rolls: With a rolling pin, roll out each sandwich bread slice until completely flattened. Leaving at least 1 inch around the edges of the flattened bread, spread a generous tablespoon of the avocado sandwich spread and top with a slice of ham and cheese. Roll up the sandwich and pat to flatten a bit with your hand once you are done. With a sharp knife, cut the ends of the sandwich roll (less than 1/4") and cut the sandwich roll in half, diagonally.
  3. If sending them to school, send as is and lay them on their side. If you are eating them at home, you can place them in the toaster oven for 2 to 3 minutes and stand them up on the cut flat side, making a couple of towers.
