Five Ways to Enjoy a Sandwich

Deluxe Egg Salad Sandwich

Sandwiches aren’t just filled with deli meat or peanut butter and jelly. They can be made from all sorts of ingredients sandwiched between two slices of bread. Edward Montagu may not agree with me … but a sandwich can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert! Here are a few favorites.

Start the day with Wendy Cook’s Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches to Freeze. They can be made the night before so breakfast can be on the table in a snap.

“We always bought breakfast sandwiches to throw in the freezer for my husband to take to work,” reveals Wendy. “He loves the McGriddles at McDonald’s so I made mine to kind of resemble them.”

These sweet and savory breakfast sandwiches are so good. Wendy sandwiches sausage, egg, and cheese between two pancakes. And, the pancakes are brushed with syrup. Yum! They’re a fun weekend breakfast and great if you’re on-the-go.

Egg salad is a classic deli sandwich and I love Nancy Faivre’s (Rock Falls, IL) Deluxe Egg Salad. It’s quick, easy, and delicious.

“My husband wasn’t much of a fan of egg salad sandwiches until I made this recipe,” shares Nancy. “Now he loves them!”

Nancy’s egg salad has a unique texture. Most recipes just use mayonnaise to bind the hard-boiled eggs. This version also adds cream cheese and butter. The combination gives the egg salad a unique texture and adds a slight tang and creaminess. The seasonings are mild which means you can add more to taste.

Another easy lunch sandwich is Lolly St. John’s (Concord, CA) Asian Chicken Salad. It’s like nothing you’ve tried before.

“I love chicken salad sandwiches and I love this carrot ginger dressing so I have combined the two for a unique wonderful sandwich,” explains Lolly.

Untraditional and amazing, this is a tasty chicken salad. It’s perfectly balanced with crispy cabbage, savory chopped chicken, and crunchy slivered almonds. Mixed with the tangy and slightly spicy carrot ginger dressing takes this chicken salad to a whole new level.

Lori McLain’s (Denton, TX) Sticky Chicken Naan Sandwich is hearty enough it can be eaten for dinner alongside a side salad.

“I was inspired to make a sandwich out of some great chicken thighs I got on sale,” says Lori. “Instead of my usual BBQ, I decided on a take-off on the different chicken dishes at my local Chinese restaurants… all on a soft Naan bread cushion.”

This sandwich is incredible. The chicken is sweet, salty, and tangy thanks to the marinade. Pepperoncini spread, red pepper relish, and banana pepper rings add some heat to balance the flavors. Naan bread has a touch of sweetness and is the perfect vessel for holding all the goodies inside.

Linda Griffith’s (Augusta, GA) Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake Sandwiches are a tasty summer dessert.

“Your mouth will water just to look at these wonderful cheesecake sandwiches,” thinks Linda. “They are so good.”

The cookie itself is sweet and nutty, reminiscent of an oatmeal cookie. They’re sandwiched with a sweet, creamy, and tangy strawberry cheesecake filling. I like that so much, I could stick a spoon in the bowl and eat the filling alone. A nice way to end a day.

Get creative in the kitchen and make a sandwich the next time you’re hungry. If you could have any sandwich, what would it be? Share your favorite in the comments below and Happy Pinching!
