Turkey Cheese Apple Sandwiches are your kids next favorite lunchbox idea. By now they are tired of everything you’ve been offering them all year. They got a winter break and then you likely were right back to the same ideas. They’ve only been back for a few weeks this year and they are already complaining.

Not only are these unique and you likely haven’t tried them yet, but there are endless possibilities. While we focus on Turkey Cheese Apple Sandwiches here, you could easily recreate with ham, chicken, roast beef or another meat. You can switch up the cheese you use too! Turkey goes great with a mild cheddar, but with chicken and gouda apple slice sandwich would be amazing.
We used Lil Snappers Pink Lady apples. Not only are pink lady apples crisp and sweet, but Lil Snappers are made specifically for kids for their small size. Toss an apple into their lunchbox for school, and then use them again in this recipe for an after-school snack. Or reverse it and use these in their lunch box and through them an apple and peanut butter or hummus for that after-school snack. Lil Snappers also makes pears and oranges in kid-sized portions. They still meet one size serving of fruit for your family’s daily requirements.
Can you make Apple Slice Sandwiches ahead of time?
Absolutely! The key to making these ahead of time is that you rub each side of the apple slices with lemon juice. The acidity in the lemon prevents apples from browning. You can make these these at least 12 hours in advance without worry. Beyond that, you want to ensure that you are using a very crisp apple like Lil Snappers Pink Lady apples. Using a softer apple, it will start to turn mushy after 12 hours. Pink Lady apples can be made 24 hours in advance.
These apple slice sandwiches are great for after school snacks or for the lunchbox.
However, they are also amazing for the littles too!
