In lieu of buying lunch meat that usually goes bad before I finish it (and is usually jam-packed with Sodium), I’ve started getting more creative with my grocery list and sandwich creations. Pepperjack cheese has become a staple; I can’t get enough of that flavor, and it’s another dairy serving in my day.

Most of these combinations would work with any cheese; it’s all about your preferences. The idea of a sandwich lends itself to creativity; the options are endless, it just depends on what you like and what’s in your fridge!

Roasted Red Pepper & Pepperjack Sandwich

2 slices whole-wheat bread (toasted, optional)
2 slices Pepperjack cheese
¼ c Roasted Red Peppers

Roasted Red Pepper & Egg Sandwich

2 slices whole-wheat bread (toasted, Optional)
2 medium/large eggs, scrambled (or cooked to preference)
2 tbsp Roasted Red Peppers
1 tbsp Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (other flavors optional)
