Lunches tend to be a time of slight chaos in this homeschooling family’s house. Three kids, all making different lunches at the same time, excited that the hardest part of their school day is over equals one loud, crazy time. I realize I could make this time easier by preparing a lunch for them and requiring that they eat whatever I fix. Let’s get real, though. If I get dinner on the table for everyone, I’m doing good. Adding a set lunch to the mix is just more than I want to think about. Besides, I like to give the kids a time to get creative in the kitchen on their own. It’s fun to see them get so excited about a new version of a tortilla roll-up or even sauteed veggies that they have prepared themselves. How do I stay sane during lunch preparations? I stay out of the kitchen. As far away as I can get. I use that time to clean up a few things in other rooms, then fix my lunch once they are settled and eating.
One of my favorite lunches to fix is egg salad sandwiches. This is the sandwich of choice when we travel, which over the summer was a lot. It’s easy to pack, easy to throw together into a bun or on special occasions, a croissant. The kids like egg salad but they get tired of it quickly. That’s where these special Bacon & Cheddar Egg Salad Sandwiches come to the resuce. After all, bacon and cheese never gets old! You’ll love the salty bacon paired with the creamy egg salad and full-flavored sharp cheddar cheese that this sandwich mix holds.
This mix is super easy to whip up and have on hand for those work lunches or school lunches that you may have to pack. It’s high in protein to give you just what you need to make it through the rest of your day!
