Prawn & Watercress Sandwiches


There are so many different types of breads available now in the supermarket that can be used to make sandwiches. Try ciabatta, granary bread, mini pita pockets, mini baguettes or bagels. If you find you are in a rush in the morning, some sandwich fillings can be made up the night before to save time in the morning, such as tuna and egg. To keep them fresh, wrap in cling film or foil and it’s good if you can store them in a small plastic container in your child’s lunchbox, to prevent them getting squashed.
