Title: Processed food and a method for making a processed food product for mass distribution

Abstract: A food product suitable for high volume production is formed of varied layers such as breads or doughs, vegetables, dairy products, meats and various spices and sauces. The product may be mass produced with a minimum of manual labor and includes an edible outer shell or casing made of a pliable material and a filling generally made of a different food product such as meat, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, various sauces or combinations of these ingredients. The pliable first layer forms an outer "shell" or crust which is covered with a pliable second layer of desirable food ingredients. The two layers are then rolled together about a common axis to form a spiral, layered food product having alternating "layers" of crust and filling. Additional layers may be added as additional ingredients are desired for the final product. The resulting food product is a rolled product having uniform layers of ingredients throughout the product assembly.
