Hard to believe that we will be taking a new first day of school photo soon. This summer is really going quickly and before we know it we will be sitting in Back To School season. Over the last few years I have been very open about my struggle with preparing school lunches for Jude and like I have talked about recently, this school year we will be preparing a school lunch for Teagan every day now as well. That being said, my lunch ideas have to get longer and I have to be able to work around my kids differing ideas of a yummy lunch.
The whole slider craze is huge and just like street tacos we love these perfect kid size buns and use them often. The last time I went to the store to pick up our favorite Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Slider Buns for our BBQ I got an idea, these yummy slider buns can be used for lunchbox sandwiches!
Tuna Salad & Cucumber Sliders – A Perfect Kid Size School Lunch
One sandwich that both Jude and Teagan love is a tuna salad sandwich. I decide to give this recipe a try a few weekends ago to get a test run on some lunchbox lunch ideas. I made my traditional and easy tuna salad recipe and simply added some slices of cucumber. I perfect way to get some extra veggies into their school lunches.
Tuna Salad & Cucumber Sliders
Tuna Salad prepared as you like
Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Slider Buns
1. Make tuna salad as you like. I personally use one pouch of tuna and add 3 TBSP of mayo and use a bowl to combine tuna and mayo.
2. Put out one Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Slider Bun and spread prepared tuna salad on the “bottom” bun.
3. Slice cucumber thinly and add two slices of cucumber to sandwich.
4. Place “top” bun on top of the tuna salad and cucumber. Keep cold until ready to enjoy.
A complete lunch that is kid approved and so easy to put together on an early school morning.
