Easter Egg Lunch



Scroll down for today's recipe and you'll see….that there is none.

No recipe -- what?! Well, don't be upset because this is one of the cutest ideas for school lunch that I've ever seen. You know those plastic Easter eggs you've got that are probably stored in your house somewhere just waiting to be used once a year? Here's a cool new way to use them for school lunch. Just fill each egg with a variety of different foods, pack them up, and come lunchtime your kids can open them up for edible surprise after edible surprise. Here are a few of our favorite things to stuff them with:

* cheese cubes
* olives
* berries
* almonds, pistachios, walnuts, roast sunflower seeds or cashews
* whole grain crackers
* raisins, dried cherries, cranberries or other dried fruit
* turkey or ham cubes
* edamame
* cooked pasta

Happy Easter!

    My kindergartener loved this, but then his teacher had to confiscate the empty eggs because he and his buddies started tossing them around the lunch table…. Boys!

    Heck, forget school lunch….this would be great as a snack for Easter day or a lunch the day before as well! Another use for the plastic eggs, is sending hard boiled eggs in cold lunches. They’re the perfect size for an egg and keep the egg from being crushed. :)
