Chopped Junior-Inspired Lunchboxes: Potato Pancake Sandwich

Try a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.

There was definitely a holiday vibe in the Chopped Junior kitchen, and our contestants were thrown some pretty tough curveballs, like gingerbread houses and snowmen made from doughnuts. But we were mostly interested in using potato pancakes, an ingredient in the entree basket, as a bun for an easy sandwich perfect for a boxed lunch.

Just spread some sour cream on two leftover potato pancakes and top with sliced chive or scallion. Add a couple of slices of smoked salmon and sandwich the pancakes together. Wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate until lunchtime.

Tune in Tuesday at 8|7c to see which contestant wins $10,000. And keep coming back every Wednesday for a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.
