With my go-to list, it’s easier to make and serve (or pack!) hot lunches for school, day care, or preschool.
Make a batch of egg cups whenever you have time, stash them in the fridge, then warm them up for lunch.
Pizza Bites (either my homemade recipe or store-bought) hold well in a thermos. Warm them, pack them, and add simple sides like milk and fruit.
This simple soup—or any soup you like, whether canned or homemade—can be packed in a thermos or warmed to serve at home.
Whenever you have pancakes left from a weekend breakfast, freeze them to use for easy future hot lunches.
Combine scrambled eggs, cheese, and beans into a simple burrito—or warm up a frozen one like the bean and cheese ones from Annie’s—for a satisfying hot lunch option.
If we have leftovers or I’m looking for an easy pasta recipe to make for lunch, this pesto pasta is a great option.
Pizza Muffins store really well in the fridge and just need a quick reheat before serving or packing.
Scrambled eggs are quick and easy—you can even make them in the microwave in about a minute. You can stir in some shredded cheese or spinach.
