Back-to-school sandwich bores can creep up quickly when making lunches day after day.

Here are some ideas from Klosterman Bread on how to mix up your child’s lunchbox menu:

Message in a Bottle Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices Klosterman Bread of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Equipment:

  • Letter and shapes cookie cutters

Directions:

  • Spread peanut butter on one side of one slice of bread
  • Use cookie cutters to write your message on the other slice of bread
  • Place message bread on top of peanut butter bread

Sushi Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 3 pieces of Klosterman Whole Wheat Bread
  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 teaspoon capers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (plus more for spreading on the bread)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 cucumber, cut into long, thin sticks
  • 1 carrot, grated

Directions:

  • Cut the crusts off of each slice of bread and roll out as thin as possible with a rolling pin
  • Place the tuna, capers, mayonnaise and dijon mustard in a bowl and stir to combine
  • Place the long side of the rolled out bread closest to you
  • Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on each slice of rolled out bread
  • Thinly spread 1/3 of the tuna mixture onto half of the bread lengthwise
  • On top of the tuna mixture, arrange some of the cucumber sticks and grated carrot making sure not too over stuff the roll (a little goes a long way)
  • Starting at the side closest to you (the filled end) tightly roll the tuna/cucumber/carrot mixture up and press to seal into a roll (Dab a bit of mayonnaise across the end of the roll to act as a glue sealing the roll)
  • Cut the roll into 4 even pieces and repeat with remaining bread and tuna mixture
  • Serve.

 Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • Jelly

Directions:

  • Whisk the first 3 ingredients in a bowl
  • In a separate bowl whisk the peanut butter, egg and sugar until combined, then whisk in the milk until incorporated
  • Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined (it’s okay if there are a few lumps)
  • Heat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with oil (Vegetable or Canola)
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture onto the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side
  • Take a cooled pancake, spread 1-2 tablespoons of jam on one side and top with the other pancake to make a sandwich
  • Continue to do the same with the remaining pancakes and serve
