It’s time for the kids to go back to school, so we wanted to share some delicious recipes for packing fun into lunch this year.
I have bought Boars Head cold cuts exclusively for the last 20 years. Ovengold® Roasted Breast of Turkey is a stable in our house and in the last few years my boys have been enjoying the Boar’s Head EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast too. I found without fail, that the quality is the best you can buy at your deli counter. That’s why when our friends at Boars Head invited us to share the recipes below, I was happy to do so. I hope you enjoy them too!
Monday: Get Back Into the School Swing with a Star Student Sandwich
- For a classic brown bag lunch, build an EverRoast Chicken Sandwich featuring Boar’s Head EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast, American Cheese and Honey Mustard for a delicious favorite.
Tuesday: Get The Week Kickin’ With These Delicious Chicken Cups.
Kickin’ Chicken Cups are a bite-size, create-your-own lunch kids love. They are made with Monterey Jack Cheese and EverRoast® Chicken, Tortilla chips and a dollop of salsa. You’ll be surprised how many the kids can pop in their mouths at lunchtime!
Wednesday: Beat the Mid-Week Slump with Crafty and Creative Sandwiches and a preschool playdate!
- For kids of all ages, change up lunch with Caterpillar Sandwiches. Made with Boar’s Head Branded Deluxe Ham, 33% Lower Fat – 36% Lower Sodium American Cheese* and celery sticks for crunch, this lunch is as fun as it is delicious.
We love this recipe as part of a pairing for a Preschool Lunch! The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is a classic and can serve as the theme for a playdate. Read the book, serve lunch and then let the kids create their own caterpillar! (There are tons of craft ideas on pinterest)
Thursday: An Apple a Day for Both Teachers and Students
- A Maple Honey Turkey and Apple Wrap is a perfect way to combine fruits and veggies for a wholesome lunch. Boar’s Head Maple Glazed Honey Coat® Turkey Breast, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, slices of Red Delicious apple and fresh baby spinach unite for an option that is both sweet and savory.
Friday: Head into the Weekend with Better than Recess Rollups
- Maple Honey Coat Ham Pretzel Rollups are a great alternative to the traditional sandwich. Made with Boar’s Head Maple Glazed Honey Coat® Ham paired with Gold Label Switzerland Swiss® and American Cheese for a fun snack that is sure to be kid-approved.
