With a brand new school year underway how's about switching things up for school lunch and making something totally different --like these Vegetarian Sandwich Sticks.

I'm a big fan of ordinary foods that are served up in an unusual way. Of course there's nothing wrong with two pieces of bread with some kind of filling in the middle, but when that bread is turned into sushi sandwiches like these or these, cut into fun shapes or served on a stick, it's just that much more fun to eat.

I bought a bunch of wooden skewers like these, to thread all kinds of the kids favorite foods. Kenya is a sucker for tomatoes, cheese, french bread and Romaine lettuce, so this way he can take the pieces off one by one and turn them into any combo he wants or stuff everything in his mouth at once which I've seen happen too. I like to serve a dip on the side like Ranch Dip to dunk everything in as well.

And if the Vegetarian Sandwich Sticks aren't your jam, you can always try these Sandwiches on a Stick for a more meaty combo.

Don't take my word for it, just try offering it for lunch and watch lunch come home with empty sticks!

    Sure this looks fun for kids, but after sending kids to school with something else on a stick, I was told by the school not to do that anymore because it's not safe.. :-(

      Dorothy, I like to use plastic cake pop sticks as they don't have sharp ends. Perhaps your school would be ok with that?
