Eggs are God’s gift to food, right? We eat them by the pallet in this house. This is an awesome one to make on a sunday evening and have it ready to rock on Monday. I like it with chili sauce and salad, but you can also throw in inside a wrap. Great for breakfast, awesome for lunch, and it also makes an easy bang up dinner.
When I make pizza for dinner I make extra dough and portion it out and chuck it on the freezer. Then I can pull it out when I want it. You can make the pizza the night before and cook it in the morning, alternatively leftover pizza is a food group unto itself. Am I right? Although, I don’t do it cold. I never understood the cold pizza with a hangover thing.
If you don’t have time to make and prove your own dough, just use tortillas or Lebanese bread for a super quick alternative.
These are awesome as first finger foods, and they are super awesome as brunch with bacon and goat’s cheese, but they are also handy little suckers to throw into a lunchbox. Can be eaten as little lunch or big lunch, depending on how long they can resist them for.
A little trickier to eat on the run, but it’s so packed full of good proteins and Omega 3’s that it is awesome for growing brains. This can also be turned into a wrap to be eaten with one hand while the other plays handball. For the co-ordinatedly gifted.
This is on high rotation in my lunch boxes. Like, higher than a meth addict on Sunday morning. I use an array of different fillings but this is the original and the best (made even better by shredded chicken or pulled pork).
This is packed with nutrients and has bags of flavour. My kids love this salad. You can add some tuna or chicken if you wish but served as is a great lunch. Also yummy will a big dollop of guacamole to schmoosh it all together.
These are always a winner. The cheesier the better, but whenever someone makes these out of my book they send me a message saying they got snapped right up. I’m a huge fan of a cheesy muffin, and if you sneak some veges in there they’re a fabulous lunch alternative.
These scrolls love some cooked and chopped bacon in them too, just quietly, because everything is better with bacon. This recipe uses a scone dough base so it is leavened only with baking powder and doesn’t need time to prove like a dough with yeast.
This makes them fast to whip up.
They also freeze well so you can do them on the weekend to be ready for the week.
A tad fiddly, yes, but so worth it. If you’re looking for a gluten free option that is tasty and healthy – badda boom.
You can make these the night before but you need to lay a piece of moist kitchen roll over them in the fridge, with a layer of Glad Wrap and then wrap them tightly, individually, to go into the luncbox.
Tell me are you happy school is back?
Do you get sick of making lunches?
