Dragging myself out of bed, it’s time for the daily rush out of the house while also having to make breakfast and lunch all at once. I am so thankful for all the creative products out there to help me make lunch for my son, which I know, will be fun to eat.
My favorite lunchbox tool is the bento box. It fits neatly into my son’s standard lunchbox and I can stuff it full of yummy treats for him to eat. I have found that the easiest way to make a sandwich for him is to make tortilla wraps. They are easy to hold and the combinations of things that you can wrap are endless. I also love silicon cupcake wrappers, which I fill with goodies that would otherwise go everywhere not to mention they cheer up a lunchbox just like that!
This will be the first recipe in my series on fun lunch ideas for back-to-school. Throughout the month of September, check back each week for new and creative lunch ideas.
This week our focus on a savory lunch combination. Everything is self-explanatory but to elaborate on the wrap, just use a regular tortilla (whole wheat would be great here). Slather on some honey mustard and then layer turkey, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Roll it up and voilà—lunch is served!
