Some of the best on-the-go lunches are snack-based, ones that allow you to graze off and on as you find time. These well-curated bites include pepper poppers stuffed with bacon-and-herb cream cheese, plus a flexible cast of extras. Feel free to swap in any berries and veggies you like. Though we feature the peppers here as an anchor for make-ahead lunches, they’re also fantastic appetizers for tailgating, block parties, or any casual gathering.
