Inside-Out Turkey Sandwich Cups

Check out this recipe for Inside Out Turkey Sandwich Cups. Great lunch for kids with vegetables and meat – can be used for a filling snack too!

As moms, we go into summer with the best of intentions. If you're anything like me, in the next few weeks you'll make all of these amazing plans for what you're going to do with those long summer days. You prep fun at-home activities, schedule exciting outings, and even plan picture-perfect lunches for your kids.

And if you're anything like me, those plans usually last a week or two before the chaos ensues.

So I don't know about you guys, but for me, it's key to be a little more realistic about those fun summer plans. I still like to put together exciting and enriching things for us to do/eat/see, but I also try to make sure I'm planning things that are fun but not over-complicated (i.e. things I'll actually do rather than just plan).

And that definitely applies in the lunch department too. No, I'm not going to make perfectly themed lunches every single day… let's be real: it's just not going to happen. Instead, I like to think up fun ideas that are nutritious and easy to prep with two stir-crazy kids in the house! Bonus points if I can think of a way to get those stir-crazy kids to help me make lunch.

Inside-Out Turkey Sandwich Cups


  • 1 pack sliced turkey
  • 1 pack sliced salami
  • 5 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 8oz pack cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 small heads or 1 large head of broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Toast the bread slices and until bread is crumbly and no longer soft. Cool and crumble into bite-sized pieces. If you're using a toaster oven, toss the salami on one side of the cookie sheet and bake until crisp.

While the bread/salami is baking, place turkey slices in greased muffin tins, making a cup shape. Bake these in a 400-degree oven for about 10 minutes, until edges of cups start to brown.

While your cups are baking, chop all veggies into bite-sized pieces. Lay veggies out buffet-style so kids can choose what they'd like in their cups.

Beat together eggs, cream cheese, salt, and pepper in a mixer. Fold in bread pieces. Let kids mix in their ingredients into this mixture…this is a great opportunity to get them involved in the cooking!

Pour filling into the cooked turkey cups and bake for another 15-20 minutes, until tops of the filling start to brown. Serve warm.

  4. Actually, this is the lunch meat we buy and it is definitely on my quick go-to lunch menu. It is especially easy to make into wraps–the time consuming part comes if I let others in the kitchen and they get into "decorating" theirs with lots of extras. But that is fun, too. These look amazing by the way.
