Ham & Pepper Jack Bánh Mì Sandwiches by Brooklyn Supper

Complete with quick-pickled jalapeños, daikon and carrot, this sandwich has an extra kick to put some pep in your step, even on the dreariest workday. Wisconsin pepper jack adds a little heat, as well as creaminess to balance the crunchy vegetables.


Baked Veggie Taquitos by Hip Foodie Mom

A great way to get your veggies, these taquitos are the perfect make-ahead meal. We recommend making a big batch to have on hand for the work week. With peppers, mushrooms, black beans, butternut squash and Wisconsin monterey jack cheese, your lunch will be anything but bland.


Smoked Salmon Wrap with Whipped Ricotta by FoodieCrush

Break the “no fish in the lunchroom” rule with this smoked salmon wrap. Wisconsin ricotta and cream cheese whipped together with capers, fresh chives, dill and parsley create the perfect spread to use as a base on wraps. Top that with smoked salmon to pack on the protein, and red lettuce, red onion and cucumber for a fresh crunch.
