The easiest To Go Sandwiches for your cooler that require no cleanup when the fun is done!

We spend a lot of time on the lake in the summer. We take all kinds of different foods with us. I try to make the food as easy and hassle free as possible and I’m always on the lookout for the no fuss, no mess food to make less work and the boating trip more enjoyable.

Make these Cold Cut Hawaiian Rolls ahead of time, pack them up, and take them with you to go!

One weekend we traveled to the big brother’s house and spent the day on his boat. His boat means his food. We are all getting ready so we can head to the lake. My big brother, Kevin pulls out some Hawaiian Rolls. I don’t think much about it and continue getting ready. Now let’s fast forward to lunch time on the boat…..Kevin pulls the Hawaiian Rolls out of the cooler. Don’t get me wrong, I love Hawaiian Rolls! But now I’m thinking, we are only eating rolls for lunch??? Nope…I was wrong. The rolls were actually these perfect little delicious pre made sandwiches. You just pulled out a sandwich or two from the package and Voila…lunch!

No hassle, no fuss, and no cleanup! Needless to say, I was very impressed. Right then and there, I knew my brother was onto something and this was a must have for my cooler.

    Oh my gosh this is genius! I’m definitely doing this on our next camping trip. Thanks for sharing the family secret!

    • Seriously! I make those little hot ham and cheese rolls but never thought of this…every once in a while the brother has a stroke of genius! Lol!

  2. Kelli says:

    Thank you for posting this! We are going on basically a huge 2 week long road trip, and I was looking for ideas for things we could eat while on the road so I don’t spend a million dollars on fast food. This is actually going to be dinner a couple nights, lol. We LOVE those rolls! Why did I not think of this???

    • lacier77 says:

      Hey Kelli! Yay! I’m glad you found these sandwiches! I was so excited when my brother made them! Couldn’t get any easier! Ya’ll have fun on your road trip and save some money!

    • lacier77 says:

      Hey Melissa! I’ve not thought about freezing them. I do freeze bread though. If you freeze them, let me know how it turns out!

  3. Shonda says:

    Great idea! I’ve made these hot several times and already had them on my list for our trip next week, but I’m thinking of wrapping them in foil and ‘cooking’ them on the dashboard!

    • lacier77 says:

      Hey Shonda! I love the hot version too. In this heat wave it probably wouldn’t take long to heat up that way. Have a great trip and thanks for stopping by!

    • lacier77 says:

      Hey Mandy! No, they don’t get soggy at all. They hold up great. I set the package on top of the ice in the cooler and away we go. Thanks for stopping by. ????

    Found this on Pinterest. Great idea! My husband is a truck driver and is gone for a week or more at a time. He has a small plug-in cooler, so these will work great for him to grab n go!

    • lacier77 says:

      Thank you Amanda! We just ate these little sandwiches on the lake this past weekend and they are soooo good!

  5. This is a great idea! How many pounds of each meat do you think it takes per sleeve of buns? I want to make these for a camping trip this weekend and want to make sure I buy the right amount!

    • lacier77 says:

      Hi Katelyn! I would use a pound and half for each sleeve of buns. If you use 3 different meats then you will use 1/2 pound of each. Hope that helps and have fun camping!
