“Something different to put in your child's lunchbox! A little more fun to eat than a regular sandwich....customize it to suit your child's (or your own) taste! If you have really thick pretzels, you can cut them in half. Experiment with the flavored pretzels and different cheese and meat combos. This is easily customizable, and is just something different from a regular "sandwich" or "wrap" in a lunchbox! had a hard time understanding the use the large soft pretzels, like Auntie Annies. You can buy the frozen ones at the grocery store too. You use two for each sandwich.”
1 sandwich

Ingredients Nutrition
