Dino-licious DIY Lunchables
We're going waaaay back with these DIY lunchables!
Your kiddos might not know what Throwback Thursday is yet, but we're taking on the biggest throwback ever with these Dino-licious DIY Lunchables!
Let's be honest, this yummy lunch recipe is perfect for kids and adults alike. The dino-shaped sandwiches will certainly appeal to little hands, but we don't know anyone who wouldn't love to see these in their lunch box. The decorated dino egg, plus some other healthy options, round out this bento-box-style meal.
In addition to the dinosaur theme, we really love this recipe because it gives you the option to make your favorite Throwback Thursday lunch at home. Many of us grew up eating lunchables at school or on family vacations, and finding out that you can make your own is a fun treat.
Enjoy making these DIY lunchables for your kids, grandkids... or just about anyone!
Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time5 min
- 1 handful pretzels
- 3 pieces of boiled or steamed broccoli
- 1 hard boiled egg (with green spots--using a permanent marker)
- red leaf lettuce (as the bed for the dinosaur sandwiches)
- 4 slices white sandwich bread (or any bread! I used Texas toast for a thick slice)
- 2 pieces salami
- 2 pieces Swiss cheese
- mayonnaise and mustard (optional)
- Container from a frozen TV dinner. Remove the food items and wash the container.
DIY Lunchables Recipe
Place broccoli in one compartment.
Place hard boiled egg in the center compartment.
Place pretzels in the third compartment.
Lay down a bed of lettuce.
Using a dinosaur cookie cutter, cut 4 pieces of bread. Place a piece of salami and a piece of cheese in each dinosaur. I used a cookie cutter to slice my salami and Swiss cheese so it would match the cookie cutter. Spread mayonnaise and mustard if desired.
