Veg Sandwich Finalists

Vegetarian sandwich recipes are finalists in Jif’s “Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest.”

Today, Jif announced the five finalists in its seventh-annual "Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest," for kids, and two of the sandwiches are vegetarian. The "Peanutty Cristo Breakfast Sandwich" was submitted by an 11-year-old from Massachusetts, and the "Peanut Butter and Banana Quesadilla" by a nine-year-old from Wisconsin. The other three competing entries call for chicken, but both vegetarian recipes can easily be veganized by substituting dairy-free alternatives. A vegan-friendly "Veggie Sloppy/Sweet Joe" sandwich, submitted by a 10-year-old vegetarian from Illinois, was a top 12 finalist after the first round of voting ended two weeks ago, but did not make it into the top five.
