Food Roll-Ups

Like fruit roll-ups, but made from food
  [vote for,

Unless you have been living inside a cave (or maybe Canada) for the past 30 years you should have heard of fruit roll-ups. As near as I can tell, they take chemical fruit, pay people to chew it up, and then take it and roll it into flat sheets and market it to children.

Why not make these delicious treats from other foodstuffs as well? We could have bacon roll-ups, and pizza roll-ups, and fish roll-ups. Since they are flat, you could easily stack them to make sandwiches. And since they roll up, they are easy to fit into any lunch bag.

mayo sheets http://www.halfbake.../idea/mayo_20sheets
"So the future consists of foodstuffs in sheet format rather than in pill format as we've been lead to believe?" [phoenix, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Kind of baked, there are any number of recipes around that tell you how to embed vegetables, fish, meat, name-it into gelatine. The gelatin can be sliced together with the embedded substances to make roll-ups.
Of course you could develop some generic matrix made from recycled shopping bags and add artifical flavor made form used motor oil, without any claims of "real fruit juice". That would be new.

       Mmm-mm. Now *that* I'd buy!

       Pizza is quite easily folded over upon itself, I see no reason that a rolled version would not work.

       One Canadian back-bacon-and-fishbone rollup for you. I just made it. In my cave.

       Don't they also call fruit roll-ups "fruit leather"? Meat would be Meat Leather, which sounds redundant and awful at the same time. A giant pepperoni would be cool, though. It would completely cover a pizza.

       I already eat fish rolled up... mmm... pickled herring... ooh, and looky, a fishbone! Here... I'll share.

       This is very nice but I think I've seen the idea somewhere before. Not from HalfBakery though. I like the idea very much, don't get me wrong!

       Swiss Rolls and Roti Rolls are but two examples of food in a rolled up form.

       Salmon and cream cheese pinwheel anyone, savoury petit fours?

       Is there a market for Meat Poptarts?
