Amanda's Kids' Lunch

Dessert is Worth the Wait, Today

Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration. 

You may have noticed that my fall-back ingredients are smoked ham and multigrain bread. They're good tasting, healthy, and while not exactly blank slates, you can mix them with countless ingredients. Here I wanted a little crunch and tang so I spooned some pickled beets and horseradish (from a jar) on the other half of the sandwich. For dessert, I cheated. Our test kitchen made Meyer lemon cheesecake and amazingly there were leftovers, so I snagged a couple slices. Keep an eye out for the recipe -- coming to a website near you soon!

I'm 52 years old and pickled beets and horseradish (even though I like horseradish to some degree, mainly in cocktail sauce!) on bread with ham just does not sound like something I would eat or even order.... your kids must have quite the palates! And I do not consider myself a picky eater! ;0

I agree! Please hurry with the Meyer Lemon Cheesecake! Their season is so short.
