Ham Swiss and Apple Sandwiches

Back to school is around the corner and whether your child is going back to school in person or at home, they still need to eat lunch, right?! I’ll be honest, packing lunches isn’t my favorite activity. I love to cook dinner, but there is just something so mind-numbing about smearing pb&j on bread and shoving into the lunch box. Well, maybe the problem isn’t packing lunch, but how boring of a lunch I was packing! Enter these delicious Ham and Apple Sandwiches!

Years ago my Mom and I helped cater a bridal shower luncheon and one of the tea sandwiches we made was ham, swiss, and green apple. My daughter recently started adding apples to her salads so I thought why not add it to her sandwiches too! Well, it was a success! She loves it! She is getting lots of nutrition between the whole grains in the bread, protein from the ham, and a good dose of veggies and fruit from the lettuce and apple.

The sandwich was even more of a hit once I added homemade dijonnaise to my husband’s sandwich! In one step, this sandwich goes from kid-friendly to adult lunch worthy! While the sauce sounds fancy, its so easy. Add three parts good quality mayonnaise to a bowl and one part dijon mustard. Mix well and store in the fridge.

Ham and Swiss Sandwich

A sandwich is only as good as its bread and Sara Lee® bread is our go to! The ingredients, taste, and big variety make it a perfect choice for our family. It is soft and smooth and perfect for the lunch box or sandwiches made at home. I picked the honey wheat bread for these sandwiches because the drop of pure golden honey pairs perfectly with the apple slices! Sara Lee Honey Wheat bread is a hands-down family favorite and doesn’t have high-fructose corn syrup or any artificial flavors!

Quick Tip! To prevent the apple slices from turning brown, spray with either fruit fresh or soak in a lemon lime soda!
