Are you looking for lunch ideas that are unique and different to send with your kids every day in their lunch?  Here at Southern Mom Cooks we are sharing a new bento lunch recipe every week to give you inspiration and ideas other than the normal peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

If your kids are like mine, they need variety in their lunch.  They don’t want to eat at school but they don’t want just a sandwich in their lunch bag either.  By thinking outside the box a little bit, you can have your kids loving and eating everything you send with them.

This week I put together a super easy breakfast leftovers lunch for you.  Everyone loves breakfast and it seems like we always have a little bit left over at our house.  We have breakfast for dinner often so why not have breakfast for lunch?

My boys loved this lunch because they love anything breakfast!  It was so easy to make for them too.  This lunch idea will be going on our Bento Lunch recipe rotation for sure.
