When looking for quality sandwich recipes, there is such a variety and range on offer that it can be hard to know exactly where to start.
There are sandwich recipes available for those who like meat, for those who are vegetarian, and for those who like different types of sandwich, and many of these recipes can be adapted to your own needs.
The question when making a sandwich is where do you start – do you start with the type of bread that you want to use or do you start with the ingredients? There are so many different types of bread available. Sliced bread is the most common option, but even then there is the choice of thick or thin and brown or white bread.
Unsliced bread is also a popular choice as you can cut it to your own requirements, but if you want a more unusual sandwich, why not use a tortilla wrap or pitta bread for a slightly different sandwich taste. Sandwiches can also be made hot or cold, and the rise in popularity of toasted sandwiches, and in particular toasted Panini sandwiches, in recent years, only serves to increase the available range.
There are also so many different choices of ingredients, whether we go out to a shop to buy the ingredients specifically for a sandwich, or whether it is a matter of throwing a sandwich together from the ingredients in our cupboard or fridge. Cheese, ham, tomato and other salads, sauces such as salad cream or mayonnaise, chicken, tuna, sweetcorn and salmon are all common sandwich ingredients, and can be used in a myriad different combinations.
Sandwiches may be eaten on their own or they may be eaten alongside other foods. Cafés and restaurants will often serve sandwiches with salad or crisps as common side accompaniments.
Sandwiches are also very popular because they are easier than a lot of foods to wrap up and take with you, and form a common part of a picnic lunch due to their flexibility.
Sandwiches are so flexible that it can be useful to give yourself some ideas by looking at some delicious sandwich recipes in order to inspire you for your next lunchtime treat.
