Back to School Brownbags: Flatbread and Other Unique Recipes From Miami Chefs

The weather is just starting to really heat up in Miami, but summer will soon be making its exit -- something you can't say about almost any other part of the country.

To parents of young kids, that sweltering mid-August sun means only one thing: brown bag lunch season. This Monday, kids in the county are headed back to school -- something for adults to dread, too, because they can only make a PB&J so many times before their fourth-graders can't take it anymore.

Short Order spoke to four of our favorite chefs in Miami to see what they recommend you pack in your children's lunch bags. Get ready for some awesome snack and sandwich suggestions.
