Picture of Picnic Sandwiches in a Bread Box
Sandwiches are one of the best options for a picnic, and carrying them in their very own bread box is a fun and easy way to get them from here to there.1 Whether you go with fancy options like roasted veggies with goat cheese; classics like ham and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or a BLT; or even dainty tea sandwiches like watercress and cucumber, this awesome bread box makes for a pretty presentation that's sure to please.

Tip: You might want to also bring some soup as a part of your picnic. Then you can dip and nosh on your empty bread box after enjoying the sandwiches.

1Note: It should be mentioned that I'm kind of a huge fan of edible cups (both gummy and cake) and spoons - basically I'm of the opinion that the only thing that makes good food better is being able to eat the container it came in.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

Picture of You'll Need. . .
  • A square or rectangle loaf of bread - you can bake your own or use store-bought, but either way you'll want something with high, straight sides
  • Sandwich fixin's (meats, cheeses, roasted veggies, egg or chicken salad, even peanut butter and jelly - just about anything your sandwich-loving heart desires will work wonderfully). You can even use different fillings since you'll have a couple layers of sandwiches
  • A sharp knife
  • Cutting board

Very neat, I absolutly love this idea.
Just a little PB&J tip, put a very very thin layer of peanut butter before you add the jelly. It prevents the jelly from making your bread soggy even overnight.

Thanks so much for the awesome tip! I honestly never would have thought of that (and there are few things I hate more that soggy PB&J).

Creative, amazing and silly; just the way I like it!
Will be doing this for sure on a picnic soon.

I hope you and your picnic companions enjoy it! It's also super fun to do one with a loaf of white bread and one with a loaf of wheat and swap the insides.
picnic companions...I'm supposed to share?!

I meant um, when you gobble the whole thing up on our own. . .
