Roll It Up: 12 Inventive Ways to Roll Your Food

Item 1/1

[slideshow] Any way you play it, foods that are served in roll form are always pretty delicious. There's something about gathering a bunch of ingredients and wrapping 'em up that makes flavors really shine. Here are 12 inventive ways to roll it up, roll with the homies, and roll in the deep. ;) 1. Omelette Rolls: Breakfast in roll form? Love it. These adorable omelette rolls are wrapped in bacon and a cinch to prepare. (Recipe and photo: Set Meal) 2. Banana Egg Rolls: Take the flavors of Bananas Foster and make it oodles cuter with this clever use of a spring roll wrapper. (Recipe and photo: I Breathe… I'm Hungry…) 3. Sweet Swiss Roll Sushi: It's a bird, it's a plane, it's sushi that isn't really sushi! This charming recipe uses mini swiss rolls, icing, shredded coconut, and colored fondant to create a super sweet illusion.  (Recipe and photo: Manu's Menu) 4. Kale Quinoa Rolls: Sauté kale ever so slightly and then fill with chickpeas, quinoa, and any herbs you like. Easy, healthy, and lovely. (Recipe and photo: Scandi Foodie) 5. Antipasto Rollups: Admittedly, this crazy striped pasta is definitely the star of this dish. Check the gourmet section of your local grocery store to find something similar. (Recipe and photo: Roti n Rice) 6. Baked Pizza Rolls: Ever had a Totino's Pizza Roll? They're pretty much the best thing ever but definitely not the healthiest. This baked variety looks delicious and is a great base for improvising.  (Recipe and photo: Back to Her Roots) 7. Cucumber Goat Cheese Rolls: Perhaps the easiest recipe on this roundup, all you have to do to make this is peel cucumber, wrap it into roll form, fill with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, and top with sesame seeds! (Recipe and photo: Sunday Avenue) 8. Mini Nectarine Rolls: Another clever use of spring roll wrappers, these are a fun dessert idea disguised as an hors d'oeuvres. (Recipe and photo: Prairies on Petals) 9. Strawberry Fruit Rolls: Who knew it was so easy to make your own fruit roll-ups? Simply puree a pint of berries, pour onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet, place in the oven with the light on overnight, and that's all! (Recipe and photo: Heather's French Press) 10. Spinach and Basil Smoked Salmon Roll: This is a good way to mix up what you put in your lunchbox. Plus it involves a great recipe for a homemade spinach wrap! (Recipe and photo: Cooking Melangery) 11. Summertime Summer Rolls: Gotta have a batch of summer rolls! Always light and tasty, this variety uses carrots, zucchini, and dill for pure deliciousness. (Recipe and photo: Leek Soup) 12. Black Bean Chicken Taquitos: Finally, taquitos! How can you go wrong with a combination taco burrito?
