Panhandle Sandwiches

Kids start going back to school next week here in Oklahoma.

I know a lot of parents are in a frenzy to make sure the transition from summer break to the new school year goes smoothly.

One thing you shouldn’t have to worry about as a parent: school lunches.

This year, school lunches are NOT free for all students like they were the last two years (COVID-19 pandemic-related benefit). So that means more parents will be packing up a lunch for their kids to take with them.

I’ve got you covered for an easy one you can make WEEKS in advance. Sandwiches can typically be made ahead anyway, but this isn’t your typical sandwich.

Since it’s on a big sub roll, you can wrap it up in foil and freeze it for weeks. To reheat, simply pop it into the oven, an air fryer or toaster oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

You can reheat a whole weeks worth at a time and then store them in the fridge for your kids to take with them to school. The best part about this sandwich is the ease of making, storing and reheating it.

The taste is also a factor in why this sandwich is so good, too. It’s simple enough with ham and cheese, but the butter-Worcestershire-mustard spread is TO DIE FOR. I’m telling you—it will knock your socks off.

If you have picky eaters (who doesn’t??) you can easily omit the green onions, but I highly recommend you keep the spread. It’s delicious.
