Ham and cheese apple wraps are a delicious combination of savory and sweet that you can pack in the lunchbox or serve for a high-protein snack!
I’ve made grilled ham & cheese sandwiches for years, but these apple wraps are a low-carb version that’s light and satisfying with crunchy, tangy-sweet flavors.
Ham & Cheese Wraps with Apples
These apple wraps are an easy lunch option that will fill you up without weighing you down, and they’re quick to assemble.
Since apples are notorious for browning, use my trick to prevent apple slices from browning before wrapping them with cheese and ham.
You can also swap the ham for sliced deli turkey and use any cheese that pairs well with fruit. My favorite options are Gouda, Cheddar, and Colby Jack.
Watch how these ham & cheese apple wraps are made in the video below:
Packing These Ham Wraps for Lunch
These apple wraps can be prepared the night before and packed into lunch containers along with a boiled egg for additional protein, whole-grain crackers, veggies, and hummus for dipping.

These are great! I gave these to my daughter yesterday and she thought they were the best surprise ever. Because they were so easy and fun, I added them to a list of awesome no sandwich lunches! Thanks for sharing, and I can’t wait to try more recipes!
These would work for those days when it’s all “I’m hungry, but I don’t feel like eating” . Not to mention getting your 5+ a day.
Going to try baking these at 400F for about 5-10 minutes.
Let me know how they turn out!
These little ham wrapped apple/cheese slices are just what I was looking for…we provide snacks after church and have gluten-free families that will love these. I was running out of ideas for low cost, easy fixing finger foods. Thanks. Love your ideas!
What a GREAT idea!! Thank you for saving me this morning, lol! I just could not put together a lunch this morning, so I came to your site, knowing you’d give me inspiration and VOILA! There it was! I used goat cheese because I have a son with a dairy allergy and a daughter with a wheat intolerance, so lunches sometimes confound me! Anyways, thanks for helping me out this morning!!
Awesome! so glad you found a recipe that a) was easy b) could be made quickly c) you had all the ingredients on hand! :)
Hi, have you ever tried it with watermelon instead of apples, my kids do LOVE it. :-)
great idea Daniela!!
