Here I’m sharing an easy recipe for a Peanut Butter and Jelly Bagel Sandwich plus FREE lunchbox notes for kids. If your child does not like squished sandwiches, this Peanut Butter and Jelly Bagel Sandwich will do the trick.
It’s Back to School time again. And, I’m on a mission to stop the squishy sandwich. I learned something interesting while visiting my son’s classroom the other day. To keep lunchtime simple, the teacher has all the kids put their lunch bags in a laundry basket at the back of the room. This means everyone’s stuff is piled, one on top of the other, until the kids are ready to eat at lunch. I always wondered why my son’s sandwich would sometimes come home completely squished. Well, now I know.
So, I’ve come up with an easy solution. Bagel sandwiches. Bagel bread is delicious and it goes perfectly with Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter and Smucker’s® Concord Grape Jam. It’s that old-fashioned taste I grew up with in my Cuban-American home.
Now, Jif is one of our family favorites because it goes on creamy and spreads nice and smooth. And Smucker’s is made with real fruit, we all enjoy the taste of real fruit, and Smucker’s has just the right touch of sweetness.
