5 Non-Sandwich Sandwiches for Your Lunchbox

Now that school is back in session — whatever that looks like for you — it’s back to the lunch-making grind. And if you’ve got a never-sandwicher on your hands, get inspired with these no-bread sandwiches.

Rice Cake Sammy
Brooks invented this sandwich and makes them all the time. You can get really creative, but today we’re keeping it simple. These are great because rice cakes don’t get soggy.

  • Rice cakes
  • Provolone
  • Mayo
  • Turkey

Pancake Taco
We always have a big stack of pancakes leftover because I make a huge batch over the weekend, and this is a great way to get some extra use out of them.

  • Pancake
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Granola
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries

Apple Cookie
These also make great after-school snacks!

  • Sliced apples
  • Almond butter (sunflower is great alternative to nut-free schools)
  • Craisins
  • Chocolate chips

Pinwheel Roll-Ups
Brooks learned this recipe at a cooking class this summer!

  • Whipped cream cheese
  • Tortilla
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Lettuce
  • Bell peppers

Italian Roll Up
These are like Italian subs, but involve no bread!

  • Provolone Cheese
  • Salami
  • Lettuce

Hope your school year is off to a great start and that some of these non-sandwich sandwiches make it into your lunchbox!
