Picnic Roll-Ups

Every year when my family goes apple picking, our mom makes these sandwiches! They are super portable, easy to make ahead, and will satisfy the pickiest of eaters.

After reading The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll, we were inspired to share the recipe, as carbs have a major moment in the book… Knoll makes several references to donuts, bread baskets, and binge-eating, and TRUST US, this is a binge-worthy snack!


*Makes 12 Roll-Ups

  • 1 tube of Pillsbury Crescent dough
  • 16 thin slices of salami (you can totally sub this for ham, bacon, pancetta, ect. etc.)
  • Dijon mustard
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Italian herb seasoning
  • Sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Unroll the crescent dough and separate into four rectangles (each rectangle should be made up of two triangles)
  • On each rectangle spread about a tablespoon of mustard; generously sprinkle on the cheddar cheese and evenly lay down 4 pieces of the salami
  • Carefully roll up each rectangle; lightly pinch the dough at the seams so that they do not come undone
  • Using a sharp knife, slice each roll into 3 pieces, about an inch and a half thick; by the end of the slicing, you should have 12 pinwheels
  • Evenly space the pinwheels on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the dough is puffed up and golden brown. Sprinkle with the Italian herb seasoning and sea salt
