Lunchtime Variety

I am always looking for quick and easy lunches to make for the boys, so I thought I could share a few of our favorites and hopefully a few of you will share yours 🙂

One of our favorites is Cheesy Crescent Dogs.  All you need is a can of Pillsbury crescent rolls, your favorite cheese(shreds or slices) and hot dogs.  Just lay out the crescents, add cheese and then roll up a hot dog in the crescent.  Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes.  Serve with your choice of potatoes…chips, tator tots, etc.

Another favorite is Barbecue Cups.  Kim has the recipe over at The Daisy Muse.  These are easy and delicious and you can change them up.  Instead of barbecue sauce and brown sugar, add taco seasoning and salsa for a mexican flare or spaghetti sauce and mozzerella for an italian flare!

If you want a twist on PB&J, try Peanut Butter Roll-ups.  Just spread peanut butter and jelly on a tortilla and roll it up.  Then cut into half-inch pieces…these are a favortie at my house.

Want to beef up your mac and cheese?  Just add cut-up hot dogs to the mix….another way to add variety to lunch!  If you have leftover chicken or ham, cut it up and add it to your mac and cheese recipe.

What are some of your favorite ways to add variety to lunchtime?
