Sandwich lollipops put a special spin on the “usual” school lunch! Sponsored by Borden® Cheese.
We Put a Sandwich on a Stick…
…and it was a total hit!!
We pack our 5th grade daughter a lunch every day so we can ensure that she gets a balanced meal to fuel her brain and body for the rest of the afternoon.
Like many parents, sandwiches are one of our go-to options because they’re easy! But the same ‘ole sandwich everyday tends to get a bit boring.
However, when you roll that exact sandwich up in a spiral, put it on a stick, and rename it a “Sandwich Lollipop,” now you’ve got a school lunch that’s sure to put a smile on their face! My daughter absolutely loved it! (In fact, she kept trying to sneak bites when I was taking photos!)
If you don’t have time to make the sandwich lollipops, grab a Borden® Cheese Snack Bar for a protein-packed snack on the go that will be sure to keep your kids fueled all day long!
How to Make Sandwich Lollipops
The best part about Sandwich Lollipops is that they really don’t take any more time to make than a regular sandwich! Keep reading to see how it’s done, then grab the free printable recipe at the bottom of the post.
To start, cut the crust off one slice of bread so that it is square in shape.
Stack two pieces of ham and trim into a square, slightly smaller than the piece of bread. Layer the ham on top of bread.
Cut one Borden® Cheese Snack Bar (we used Mild Cheddar) into two pieces, lengthwise. Place one half on top of the ham, along the edge of the bread.
TIP: For an extra cheesy sandwich lollipop, use both pieces of cheese!
Starting from the side with your cheese, roll bread inward, pressing slightly as you roll so it all holds together. Cut your sandwich roll into 2-3 sections and secure each section with a toothpick or lollipop stick.
