Turkey BLTA Roll-Ups

Please share:

I’m always looking for something that I can pack in the kids lunches or grab as a quick bite for myself. Transitioning from lunches with sandwiches to lunches without sandwiches was a task at first, but I’ve been surprised at how easy it is to make a lunch that doesn’t involve bread.

Turkey BLTA | Our Paleo Life

I decided to experiment on my kids and hoped that they liked the results. I assumed they would, they’re not terribly picky, but you never know. These roll-ups have everything they liked so it just had to be a success, and it was! And they are super easy to make, which is an added bonus. Oh, and they fit perfectly in the lunch container, so triple bonus!

Turkey BLTA Roll-Ups

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 slices Turkey Cold Cuts, Applegate or Boar's Head are my favorites
  • 1 Plum Tomato, seeded and cut into strips
  • 2 slices Bacon, you'll end up with 8 pieces, cooked and cut in half lengthwise and then cut in half width wise
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • Baby Spinach Leaves


  1. Lay out a turkey slice on a plate or cutting board (or whatever you want, you don't have to listen to me).
  2. Layer 3-6 spinach leaves (depending on size or how much you like spinach) in the center of the cold cut, width-wise across the short side.
  3. Layer a few strips of tomato, 1-2 strips of bacon, and 1 slice of avocado on top of that.
  4. Starting at the left side, flip one end of the turkey slice to the right, over the layers you just added. Then roll that folded side over to the non-folded side on the right to create the roll.
  5. Just pick it up and eat it. No toothpicks necessary to hold it together.


  • Be gentle with rolling so you don't rip the turkey slice or else food will start falling out. Not that I've ever done that...

About 2-3, depending on how many rolls you want to/can eat. My kids and I eat about 2, my husband eats 3-ish.

Wrap the rollup tightly in plastic to tote for later. Air makes the avo turn brown.

Smear meat with mayo before assembling and squirt on mustard before rolling! Include some cold fried sweet potatoes on the side to fill them as theres no bread. Theyre actually good cold! I like mine sprinkled with vinegar :) Of course I'd add crudités and a piece or bunch of fruit too.

Basically all cured meats, such as bacon have nitrates...I think we have to be weary of big corporations like Applegate and Boars Head who mislabel and leave certain details out in order to convince us they are "all natural" and "organic". Staying away from cold cuts all together and buying local bacon and any other meats is the best bet if we want to eat clean. This is a very helpful pamphlet on learning what all of these terms mean and which ones are backed up by organizations like Certified Humane!
