Now that Shane is in school five days a week, it’s more important than ever to keep his little body fueled. He takes after me and gets cranky if he’s even a little hungry- plus I also worry that he won’t be able to focus in class if his tummy is rumbling.
Since he is in PM kindergarten, we eat both breakfast and lunch before he goes to class, giving us plenty of opportunity to fill his belly. However, a lot of the time we are out and about in the mornings- whether we are going to our music class at Gymboree, story time at the library, or just running errands. That means that I don’t always have a whole lot of time to make something for lunch before it’s time to pack up and go, so we are always looking for fast and easy lunch solutions that are kid-friendly.
One of our new favorite lunches are these pizza sandwiches. They use Oscar Mayer’s new Old World Style Classic Pepperoni and are so easy to put together- Shane can even help!
Easy Pizza Sandwiches
Bread or Roll of your choice
Oscar Mayer Old World Style Classic Pepperoni
Kraft sliced mozzarella
Sprinkle of dried oregano
Place all ingredients onto roll on a baking sheet- personalize quantities to your taste
Place in oven and broil open-faced, watching closely, until cheese begins to melt
Remove, let cool, and enjoy!
Optionally, you can include a small cup with more pizza sauce for dipping!
There are no complicated steps and you don’t even have to wait for the oven to preheat, so it’s the perfect lunch for a busy weekday!
Oscar Mayer has several great new Old World Style options that kids and adults will both like, including Classic Salami, Cracked Black Pepper Salami, Classic Pepperoni, and Turkey Pepperoni. All of them come in sandwich-ready slices, so you could easily mix up your sandwiches- whether they are pizza sandwiches or not. Each of the items in the Old World Style line has up to 8 grams of protein per serving, helping keep little bellies full for longer- making for the perfect ingredient for school lunches!
You can find Oscar Meyer products at your local grocery store in the refrigerated meat section. They just came out in August, so if your store doesn’t have them yet, keep checking back!
