Picnic Bread rolls (Easiest)

We plan for picnics every weekend and it is so peaceful and stress busting. The hard part is to cook the food for picnic. Since the weather here is quite cold most of the days, we can not take the food that needs heating up or tastes bland if it cools down.

So, I usually take food that is light to carry and to eat. :D Here is something which is usually made with white bread. I do not allow anything that is made using maida and I always stick to either brown bread or whole wheat bread.

To be honest, this dish looks colourful and beautiful with white bread.  The children especially will love it. So, you can use which ever bread you feel comfortable to cook with.

Spread jam or ketchup of your choice neatly. You can even place a cheese slice on top of the spread.

Using your fingers, roll the bread slice tightly.

You can serve it right away or bake it for 5 minutes. You can also fry it for a crispy crust.
