Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker First Order Lunch Recipe

It has been a minute since I made my kids a Star Wars lunch so with our recent family trip to Disneyland and Galaxy's Edge, and the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I figured it was time. After coming back from Disney, my nine year old son said that Galaxy's Edge was his new favorite land in all of Disney Parks, so I knew he would enjoy this. He even was given a hard time by the Stormtroopers there and was able to get up close to Kylo Ren, so I decided he would appreciate if I featured the First Order in this lunch.

I went with a black, red, and white theme as a nod to the latest movies but also to the color red representing the bad guys in every Star Wars movie. This lunch features a Sith Lord quesadilla and a Stormtrooper hard boiled egg. Don't forget about the pretzel stick lightsabers, they were really easy to put together.
