Disposable Plastic Sandwich Bag Alternatives that Actually Keep Food Fresh

I try to use reusable products over disposables as much as I can to reduce our household waste. I have a ton of workable replacements for plastic wrap but I cannot find a decent reusable snack bag.

The zippered and Velcro reusable snack bags just do not keep food fresh. Call me a snob but stale by lunchtime pretzels and sandwich bread are not something I’m into, especially when I’m in an area that everyone around me can order a fabulous meal and I’m stuck with the food allergy safe food I brought from home.

Roasted Turkey Bacon Maple Brussel Sprouts Recipe

One of my favorite holiday events is an annual charity friends and family turkey dinner. The host place makes turkey and stuffing and everyone is encouraged to bring a dessert or side dish. It is a fantastic evening filled with wonderful and caring people who Bring It when it comes to the potluck side of things.

So I, like most of my friends attending, decided to go BIG when a vegetable side dish, that per usual looks fancy pants and difficult to make but is a quick and easy recipe for Lazy Chefs like me.
I used turkey bacon in this recipe because I wasn’t sure if there were anyone attending the dinner who didn’t eat pork. It tastes great but feel free to use pork bacon if that’s what you have on hand if you like.

Pin this yummy recipe for later! Be sure to share it with your friends!
