Lunches for Older Kids

Sexy Sandwiches for older kids

Cheese Melt
Use Ciabatta bread or some interesting tasting bread, sliced into halves. Lightly butter with mayo and mustard on different halves. On one half put cheese slices with a meat slice on the other.

Broil for 3 minutes until cheese melts. Let cool for 3-5 min.

While the sandwich is broiling or cooling, wash and crisp (in the frig) several big lettuce leaves and add to sandwich. Or add several leaves of basil, slices of yellow, green, or red (sweet) pepper, thinly sliced cucumber or onion, etc. Wrap in a plastic bag with a twistie to secure it and go!

This may seem like a lot of effort, but once you have it down, it can be assembled very quickly.

Wraps
Use the large wraps and vary the type. There are spinach wraps that are green and sun-dried tomato wraps that are reddish. These have more flavor than the standard flour tortilla and seem to be more moist as well.

Lightly spray both sides of the wrap with water in a spritzer and place it on a plate.  Put a small pile of grated cheese in the center.  Microwave for 1 minute and remove from the microwave.

Add beans, cilantro, chopped tomato, chopped lettuce, and any other chopped vegetables or chopped meat that you like.

Fold and wrap like a burrito and stick in a plastic bag or container that seals well.
