Bread Free Potato Sandwiches

It’s potato week on Super Healthy Kids! We love potatoes. They are so versatile.  From salads, baked goods, soups, breakfasts, lunches, snacks, etc, potatoes can be the star!  Today, I decided to  use potatoes to make our sandwiches.  We often get parents looking for a replacement for bread, or a new way to make a sandwich that is a bit outside the box, and still tastes good!   These little sandwiches are the perfect answer!

To make these potato sandwiches, we used 1/2 inch slices of potatoes as our bread. We did a quick pan-fry of the potato slice to cook it through the middle so it’s soft, but not too long so that it’s mushy.

Then, we decided what sandwich fillings would be perfect with our potato slices.  We decided anything that pairs well with baked potatoes, or potato soup would be delicious in our sandwich. And of course, the more veggies the better! single potato sandwich from shkSo, we added cheese, thinly sliced cucumbers and lettuce!

While I don’t think this would be the easiest thing to send in a school lunch, it was perfect for a Sunday afternoon.

Why potatoes? According to Potato Goodness:

  • 1 potato has more potassium than a banana!
  • 1 potato has more vitamin C than a tomato or sweet potato.
  • Potatoes are also a good source of iron and fiber.

We also love potatoes because they aren’t expensive, and they can last quite a while when stored in a cold dark room.

So, what will you put on your potato sandwiches?
