Picnic Sandwiches – Easy, customizable sandwiches perfect for your next summer get-together, party or picnic!

Picnic Sandwiches - Easy, customizable sandwiches perfect for your next summer get-together, party or picnic!

It’s been far too long since I told you how to make a sandwich! AND, I would also like to admit that I love sandwiches so, so darn much.

Hey Hey, happy day! How are you? Are you loving this weather or are you LOVING this awesome weather?!

Since we’re through June + a week through July (WHAAAAT), I’ve been working on some activities and plans to make the rest of our summer as totally awesome as possible. We are doing lots of chalk coloring – our driveway resembles a Picasso – we’re playing with tons of water outside, swimming in it, too, and staining some of our favorite outfits with cherries and strawberries. So far, so darn good.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sargento®. The opinions and texts are all mine.

But, most of these activities require me to be outside, and far away from the kitchen – I’m not complaining – therefore, most of our lunches consist of veggies, deli meats, and cheese slices tucked inside soft and delicious french bread. Sliced whole wheat bread is cool, too, but my little ones prefer the white, pillowy stuff.

A few weeks ago I took them to Subway and because they decided to fall head-over-heels with their subs, I’ve been making sort of subway-copycats at home. Here’s the evidence:

Spot ON, right?! Some shredded lettuce, tomato slices, deli meat, all the Sargento® cheese slices that I could find, and tah-dahm! They’re just easy Picnic Sandwiches that will make your picnic basket happy. They are quick to make, they are portable, easy to share, easy to eat, and totally customizable.

Alllllllso while we are on the topic of this: going to Kroger for your Sargento® Sliced Cheese on an empty stomach is smart! I stocked up on every.thing. Thank goodness we have two refrigerators. I bought out the whole cheese section. Plus their cereal aisle and all the french bread that I could find. I was hangry, but also, my 4-year old eats those cheese slices like there ain’t no tomorrow. Opens up the fridge drawer, gets the Sargento® bag and poof – cheese gone. Deli meats, too.

Equally important, for the reason that I have a 6-year old vegetarian (!!!) – where does she get these things?! – I also make a straight up veggie sub just for her. For me, too, though. If you know me, then you know that I can deal without ham, but not without veggies and cheese. Besides, the convenience of Sargento® Sliced Cheese coming pre-sliced and ready to use makes prep-time simple and satisfying, whether they are meat-full or meat-less.

Bonus? Sargento® Cheese Slices are made from real, natural cheese and taste like they were cut from the block. Probably ’cause they were!

Tell me, are you hosting a picnic soon? If you are, you should totally make these picnic sandwiches for your kids, or for your friends, or friends of friends. In fact, just have a sandwiches party. Build your own sandwiches-party! That’d be fun!

To make that party more memorable, here’s a bunch of delicious sandwich recipes from Kroger.

ENJOY!
