In Summary

The ultimate guide to what takes place between the bread. You can find vegetarian sandwiches for kids, for every meal, including dessert. Each recipe is delicious and not boring.

Besides the regular PB&J, the author challenges you to throw in another ingredient to include with PB&J. Included are mayonnaise, cheese puffs, raisins, butter, ketchup, fried egg, American cheese, lettuce, pickles or potato chips! Tired of white bread? You can choose wheat bread, tortilla wraps or English muffins.

Feel like royalty with "tea time" cucumber cream cheese sandwiches! Simply spread cream cheese on both pieces of white bread with sliced cucumber between.

As for grilled cheeses, the Brits do it a little differently. They prepare cheese and pickle sandwiches. The author says asks why not grill a cheese and pickle too?

Do you have leftover mac and cheese? Place a piece of American cheese and a serving of mac and cheese between two pieces of white bread. Like garlic bread? Prepare with garlic bread! The author even suggests tomatoes!

An egg and cheese sandwich is not just for breakfast! Toast a piece of bread, bagel, biscuit or English muffin. Spread butter, place a fried egg next, piece of American cheese, butter and then another piece of bread. Prepare scrambled or sunny side up if you prefer. The author challenges you to include either maple syrup, sriracha, marshmallows, jalapeno mustard, pickle relish, radish, spaghetti, brussels sprouts, chocolate chips or bananas!

Complete your meal with a dessert such as an apple pie sandwich! Make sure to use sturdy bread for this recipe. Get a piece of thick bread, sprinkle cinnamon sugar, apple pie filling, with another piece of bread. You do not have to go through the process of cutting up apples. Simply open up a can of apple pie filling!

In Opinion

Author Alison Deerling presents a dynamic book for those kids out there who are vegetarians. I think parents are going to love this cookbook also! I am personally not a vegetarian but found quite a few sandwich recipes that made me drool!

There were two recipes that I did not like, which were egg salad sandwiches and hummus sandwiches. I do not have the patience to prepare either of the two.

What are staples in the kitchen? Bread and milk. With a few ingredients, you have a frugal meal. A glass of milk complements each sandwich.

The illustrations by Bob Lentz make the preparation of each sandwich better.

I give this cookbook a 5-star rating.
