It’s the time of year when it feels like I’ve packed a million school lunches and we’re all sick of sandwiches. I have a few things I do to add variety, but I hadn’t made these bagel sandwiches in a long time. When I sent them to school with my kids last week, they all came home raving about them.
Ham and Bell Pepper Sandwiches
whole grain bagel
3-4 slices Black Forest ham
thinly sliced green bell peppers
Soften cream cheese and spread on both sides of a bagel. Layer ham on one half of bagel, and cover with thinly sliced green peppers. Place other half of bagel on top and enjoy!
My 16 year old son loved his so much that he texted, begging me to bring three more identical sandwiches to him at school, and reported after school that everyone wanted him to share. My ten year old who declares any green food as gross actually ate his and has requested them ever since. The girls loved them too. They are simple, pack well, and taste great. With only four ingredients, they’re easy to plan and shop for, and for kids to prepare themselves.
Have a great day!
