In our house, back to school time means getting lots of lunches, snacks, and quick dinners together with the least amount of work, time, and trouble. Sometimes an assembly line process for making meals works best, especially if our calendar is really scheduled like crazy.
We’ve been turning to wrap sandwiches more and more as we are finding they really make meals-on-the-go easy. You can click on and read some of my ideas and recipes for wraps in this post: Wrap It Up – Simple Sandwiches For Busy Families
There is a little trick to putting wraps together, but once you get the hang of it, they are so simple to make. I thought rather than try to describe it here, I would post an instructional video. And what better place to learn how to make a lot of wraps for kids than in a school lunchroom? Take a look at this video. It contains some very interesting shortcuts and ideas for making delicious and nutritious easy to assemble wrap sandwiches for kids.
Of course, you probably won’t be making 24 wrap sandwiches at a time, but the idea of an assembly line will probably come in handy sometimes. I must say, I also enjoyed watching the actual wrapping of the tortilla. It is nice to see it done properly, especially if you are new to the whole wrap sandwich thing.
One last note; if you want to avoid the salad dressing or mayonnaise, try hummus or mustard or other creamy food item (peanut butter?) that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Or you can eliminate the creamy ingredient entirely. Just experiment with a variety of ingredients and you’ll find out fast what your kids like.
Have you tried making wrap sandwiches yet? Does this assembly line style work for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
