Brady is not a huge fan of the bread on the sangies.
I’d make them for him but he always just strips off the meat and eats it plain.
He loves roll ups so I came up with a new way to serve him lunch…
Voila, the Totem Pole…
WHAT YOU NEED:
8 slices deli turkey
8 slices deli ham or salami
12 1 inch cubes cheese (any variety)
8 whole yellow cherry tomatoes
1 apple cubed
WHAT TO DO:
Lay out your turkey and ham in two piles on a cutting board. Cut each pile into 4 even long slices. Lay out the rest of your ingredients around your cutting board so you can build your totem poles in a little assembly line. You have 1 set of strips of turkey and ham to work with for each totem pole.
Take your first chopstick and push a tomato down over one end. Slide it all the way down leaving about 1 ½ inches from the bottom. Then slide down an apple followed by a piece of cheese. Take the first set of turkey strips, roll them into a pinwheel shape and push the chopstick through the meat. Then add another apple, a piece of cheese, etc. Do the same pinwheel process with the first set of ham and add it to the chopstick followed by a piece of cheese, apple, and finally top it off with a tomato. Repeat process for other totem poles.
Serve these with veggie chips or some couscous cooked up quick with chicken stock…Yummy!
Noteworthy Nugget: You can get creative with these totem poles and give them faces by adding peppercorns for eyes or even using condiments like mustard to draw on faces. Your kids will get a huge kick out of them.
