Back-to-School Caprese Sandwiches

Mini Caprese Sandwiches

It’s back to school week around here! My 6 year old starts first grade today (what?!), and my 4 year old starts Pre-K in less than 3 weeks. School is going to be a very unique “adventure” this year, so we’re trying to make it equal parts exciting and “normal.” (Lots of quotes happening, and for good reason.) 

Whether your kids are starting e-learning, homeschool, or going back in person, it’s fun to try to get them pumped with small everyday things like special food. We made these sandwiches yesterday that I shared with you last year, and it seemed like the perfect time to share again.  

You might remember the tofu caprese salad recipe I shared a couple of weeks ago. It is so easy to turn that recipe into a sandwich and just replace the cheese in the recipe below with tofu if you’re plant-based or just want to try something different.
