I’ve been eating turkey and cheese rolls for ages, but it wasn’t until this week that I had the genius idea of adding avocado to the mix. I normally dip the rolls in mayo. But on Monday morning when I was in my fridge taking out the cold cuts so I could bring them to work, I just happened to spot an avocado on the bottom shelf.
I swear, it was like a lightbulb went off over my head. Instead of mayo, I could use avocado! Healthy AND delicious! (Turns out that each roll is about 200 calories, depending on how much avocado you use per roll).
My first utterance when I bit into the roll at lunch? “Ohhhhhh, oh my goddddd, this is soooooo good.” (I make a LOT of noise when I bite into something delicious. Sometimes it gets awkward.)
So if you have yet to try this amazing trio of meat, cheese and avocado, I suggest you get on it!
Turkey, Swiss Cheese and Avocado Rolls
I know this isn’t a “recipe,” but here’s how I make them.
- Sliced turkey (I usually buy Boar’s Head, but this time I got Butterball Smoked turkey, because it was on sale)
- Sliced cheese (Alpine Lace swiss – Alpine Lace is a low-fat brand.)
- Optional – sliced tomatoes
Slice your avocado and lay out all your ingredients. Layer the turkey, cheese and avocado. At this point I like to mash up the avocado so it’s evenly distributed throughout the roll, but that’s up to you. Add the tomatoes or anything else you’d like (I’m thinking that a cucumber would be good for adding some crunch), then roll it all up and enjoy.
