El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Back to School Lunch Treat Recipes!
1. Lay a piece of bread between two pieces of plastic wrap and flatten with a rolling pin.
2. Spread peanut butter on the bread, and then add raisins, and thinly sliced apple or banana on one end. Let the apple slices hang out the ends like real sushi.
3. Roll up the bread tightly and then slice into 1-inch thick pieces.
4. You can dip the apple slices in 7-up or lemon/lime juice to prevent them from browning.
