Lunchtime should be a fun time for your kiddos. Whether it’s packed in a school lunch box, served at home during the lunch hour, or a quick and easy meal on the weekend, these five sandwiches will surely put a smile your little one’s face. Mom and dad will also feel like a kid again when lunchtime rolls around!
Katz Gluten Free
Let your kids enjoy this wonderful monster sandwich!
Start with an open Katz Gluten Free bagel (you can toast it, if desired). Spread lettuce onto the lower slice of the bagel. Then, place onto the lettuce two slices of your favorite cheese, topped with two slices of tomato. Place a thin slice of sour pickle/cucumber cut through the center, onto the tomato letting it hang out a bit. Cover it with the upper slice of the bagel and attach two olives with toothpicks. Cute and yummy!
You can’t go wrong with the classic PB&J! The soft texture of Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Mountain White Bread makes it a kid-favorite, while its whole grains and clean ingredients make it a parent-favorite!
To build this PB&J classic tower sandwich, start with your favorite peanut butter and spread onto the top of one slice of Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free Mountain White Bread. Top peanut butter with your favorite jelly. Place another slice of bread on top. Repeat steps until you place the fourth piece of bread on top. Mix it up with almond butter and new jelly flavors for a fun twist!
BULL BOLOGNA SAMMIE
This bull bologna sammie makes lunchtime a treat!
Cut one slice of Rudi’s Organic Bakery™ Original Bread in half. Set one half aside. Arrange the other half underneath the full slice of bread to get the right shape. Spread your favorite jelly or jam on the half slice of bread, then place 1 slice of bologna on top. Layer two pepperoni slices on top of the bologna, and then add two green olive slices on top of the pepperoni to create the nose. Thread the radish slice through the olives for the bull ring. Using a small spoon, place two dollops of hummus on the full slice of bread and place black olives in the center for the eyes. With the unused half slice of bread, cut out little ears and horns to put on the top of the sandwich.
GLUTEN FREE HAWAIIAN WHOLE GRAIN PIZZA FINGERS
Make lunchtime fun with pizza in sandwich form! Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread pairs perfectly with Udi’s favorite pizza combination: the Hawaiian!
Spread 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce on one side of a Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread slice. Top with 1/8 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh pineapple (drained), and t tablespoon diced ham. Place another bread slice on top. Next, lightly coat a non-stick frying pan with olive oil, margarine, or butter and warm over medium heat. Add the sandwich and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown, flipping once. Slice sandwich into four “fingers” and serve with pizza sauce on the side for dipping.
PEPPERED TURKEY & WHITE CHEDDAR
This is a great lunchbox sandwich because it’s kid friendly, simple to make, and delicious with a touch of ranch!
On one slide of The Essential Baking Company Gluten Free Super-Seeded Multi-Grain Bread, place a large piece of arugula or lettuce. Place two slices of tomato on the lettuce, followed by a few thin slices of cucumber, peppered turkey, and white cheddar cheese. In a small bowl, combine about a 1 teaspoon of ranch dressing and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Spread mixture onto a second piece of bread and place, spread side down, onto the sandwich.
