If you weren't already aware, this week is British Sandwich Week (8th - 14th May 2016), the week where we celebrate the good old British food staple. The sandwich is one of the easiest meals to make & take with you, wherever you go. Pop your creation in a sandwich bag or wrap it in foil, and you're good to go.
To help celebrate sandwich week, Skippy Peanut Butter have invited me to develop a sandwich using one of my very favourite sandwich ingredients, peanut butter. Personally I love a peanut butter & apple or banana sandwich, but neither of these fruits are great eaten later once they've been sliced. However, juicy strawberries are a great alternative for packing in the kids lunchboxes, and although it may seem like an odd combination, lovers of the classic PB & J sandwich (peanut butter and jelly, or jam as we call it this side of the pond), will see where I'm coming from.
Instead of using sliced brown or white bread, I made the sandwich a little more exciting with the use of Tiger Bagels, but plain or cinnamon bagels would work just as well.
Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bagel
Skippy smooth or crunchy peanut butter
- slice the bagel in half and spread both cut sides generously with peanut butter
- lay slices of strawberry on one half of the bagel, and top with the other bagel half
My kids absolutely loved this, and the youngest would happily take it to school in his lunchbox.
