Here is a list of easy and creative ways to make a sandwich better, because no one should have a boring lunch.
Fall is approaching, and the change of season brings many of us back to our regular schedules, which might mean packing sandwiches for work or school lunches. I work from home but often find myself searching through my fridge to find ingredients that will help to make a sandwich a little bit better.
I eat a lot of sandwiches. I like having a quick lunch, and usually, that means that I make a sandwich. Just because I am having a quick lunch, that doesn’t mean that my lunch needs to be boring.
Ways to Make a Sandwich Better
Things to add to your sandwich:
Add coleslaw, sundried tomatoes, prosciutto, caramelized onions, raw spinach, avocado, bacon, sprouts, pickled onions, or peppers.
Add a runny egg:
It adds more protein to your meal and a warm runny egg yolk becomes a great sauce.
Add something crunchy:
Slices of cucumber, shredded carrot, pickles, and potato chips are all fine options.
Get creative with your spreads:
Try using pesto, guacamole, hummus, red pepper dip, gravy, giardiniera, tomato sauce, ranch dressing cream cheese, or mustard instead of mayonnaise.
Don’t use basic sliced bread use:
Construct your sandwich on an everything bagel, tortilla, pita bread, or garlic naan.
Heat it up:
Because melted cheese is the best cheese.
Raid your fridge for leftovers:
Mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, meatballs, dips, and cooked vegetables are perfect things to add to a sandwich.
Make tea sandwiches:
Smaller sandwiches are just cuter. It’s science.
Turn a complete meal into a sandwich:
Like this sandwich made with garlic bread and leftover spaghetti.
Go over the top:
I don’t believe that you can put too many toppings on a sandwich!
