Pepperoni and Cheese Slider Sandwiches
For years I have struggled with getting my youngest to eat a lunch. I will tell you I have tried everything from ‘smashing bread’ to make it small and thin to cutting sandwiches into ridiculously small pieces. Back to school lunches have been a drag, but I changed all that and I will help you with your picky eater!
Not only has the process driven me crazy, it also has been time-consuming. Then there is the other side of this story as well, the waste. My son would bring home what I spent 15 minutes creating in the morning because it was too big, or too small. Sometimes the pieces were just ugly, and I do not think I would have wanted them either.
Is there a lunchbox slider bun that exists to help me get back to school ready so I can sip my coffee and pack his lunch with ease? Yes, there is.
