Kids and Adults

From the moment we laid hands on one in our weekday lunch boxes, a good hearty sandwich has been an essential part of our foodie lives. Since then though, our tastes have been refined and broadened to include a larger variety of ingredients. The kids can still discover the classics for the first time while the grown-ups can enjoy a more elevated version.

The PB and J

We all love the classic PB + J sandwich, but if you’re looking to step it up, try making your own homemade jam, like this Red Berry Chia Jam. Or swap out the jam entirely and use fruit, like in our Grilled Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich.

That's My Jam

EASYGLUTEN-FREE

Red Berry Chia Jam

Garlic & Zest

This is more of a “fresh fruit jam.” It won’t last till next spring in your refrigerator and it’s not meant to. This sweet-tart blend is for eating right now! And if you make enough, you can gift it too.

PB and A

EASYFISH-FREE

Grilled Peanut Butter & Apple Sandwich

The Simple Veganista

This Grilled Peanut Butter & Apple Sandwich includes plenty of protein, fiber, and other nutritious value to keep you running and happy.

The Grilled Cheese

There is a lot of debate about what makes a perfect grilled cheese. But one thing’s for sure--this simple, savory sandwich keeps you coming back year after year. The true classic is a no-fuss recipe: simple Pullman bread with American cheese. Make this “End of the Month” Grilled Cheese for the kiddos.

Keep it Classic

EASYPEANUT-FREE

Classic Grilled Cheese

SideChef

This is a nice change from your usual grilled cheese. It's made with mayo on the outside for perfectly browned and crispy bread on the outside yet it stays tender soft on the inside.

Cheese for Days

The cheese possibilities are endless, so experiment with different varieties to enhance the flavors and dining experience. For a more upgraded grilled cheese, try this Emmental & Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese on for size.

Comfort Food

PEANUT-FREETREE NUT-FREE

Emmental & Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

SideChef

If you're craving the ultimate comfort grilled cheese sandwich, try this hearty version with Emmental cheese, caramelized onions, and mushrooms.

The Turkey Sandwich

Turkey sandwiches, a lunchtime staple, are not just made from cold cuts anymore. As great as those are, sometimes you want a little something extra to take the sandwich to the next level.

Not Your Average Panini

PEANUT-FREETREE NUT-FREE

Harissa Avocado and Turkey Panini

Lemons and Basil

This Harissa Avocado and Turkey Panini is not your average panini, homemade bread lathered in Harissa, and loaded with avocado, turkey, and Muenster cheese!

The Ham and Cheese

Cheese makes yet another appearance in yet another sandwich, because cheese makes everything better. Sliced bread, sliced cheese, and sliced cooked ham are all you need, as this recipe is quick and easy to prepare. This sandwich is great cold or hot and, like the others, can be combined with a lot of other great ingredients. For a ham and cheese sandwich that both kids and adults can enjoy, check out SideChef’s 7-Layer Ham and Cheese Cake. It’s pretty on the outside and delicious on the inside.

Layer Up

PEANUT-FREETREE NUT-FREE

7-Layer Ham and Cheese Cake

SideChef

An elevated and trendy take on the classic ham and cheese sandwich. It is like a savory cake that is similar to a sandwich, but with large amounts of filling and garnish, similar to a layered cream cake.

The Ice Cream Sandwich

So, technically, you can’t pack this sandwich in your lunch bag but we thought we’d throw it in just for fun. You enjoyed them from the grocery store or the ice cream truck; now, make these Ice Cream Sandwiches with the kids and continue the tradition.

We All Scream For Ice Cream

PEANUT-FREETREE NUT-FREE

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

Hapa Nom Nom

Learn how to make one of the best summertime desserts--the chipwich. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich is simply delicious and so easy to make.

While you’re making lunches for the kids, think of making one for yourself too.
