No matter how old my kids are, I will always look forward to packing them lunches. Shoot, before they were even born I was packing lunches for their dad. And tucking in love notes.
With school starting this week, I hit the kitchen with my teen daughter to come up with 3 Sandwiches for School Lunch that she approves of! I partnered with Nature’s Harvest® Bread for this post, but all sandwich creations are our own.
3 Sandwiches for School Lunch (that are teen approved!)
The thing I love most about these sandwiches for school lunch are the ingredient are things most of us have laying around! First up is a BLTC! Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Chicken on Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheatberry. This is a tasty twist on a BLT with the addition of deli meat.
Next, we made a Turkey, Bacon, and Apple Sandwich on Nature’s Harvest 18 Grains & Seeds. If you are making bacon for breakfast, toss any leftovers on the sandwiches you are packing in lunches. Not that there are ever any bacon leftovers. A little tip, I removed the apple core and sliced it in spirals so it would stay on the sandwich better.
Our final sandwich for school lunch is a twist on a favorite. Peanut Butter, Banana, Chocolate Chips, and Potato Chips on Nature’s Harvest 100% Stoneground Whole Wheat Bread. If you have mini chocolate chips those work best. The crushed potato chips give it just the right amount of saltiness too. This is a fun sandwich to change things up now and then.
To save on those sandwiches, Nature’s Harvest Bread is on Rollback at Walmart for $1.97 a loaf! There are several varieties available and so far, I like the three we picked up. My daughter’s favorite is Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheatberry and hubby’s favorite is Nature’s Harvest 18 Grains & Seeds.
Me? I like them all because they are light, unlike some of the other thick and dry wheat bread I’ve tried!
What are your go-to sandwiches for school lunch?
