I recently reviewed a toasted sandwich maker here on Dooyoo and included a sweet toastie recipe which people seemed to like so here are a few more!.
With savoury toasties the bread is really your choice. I tend to use plain white myself except when I'm using more specialised ingredients and these will be listed below. Of curse please leave out any ingredients you don't like and feel free to make substitutions and experiment!
I find a toasty is tastier and easier to remove from the machine if you coat BOTH sides of the bread with a light spread of butter.
Always follow the instructions that come with your sandwich maker and be careful of the hot metal parts! Also, fillings will BE HOTTER THAN LAVA!
The Mediterranean Munch
Bread: Sun dried tomato loaf, medium sliced if your toaster will take it.
Fillings: Roast chicken, crispy bacon, pesto.
Extras: Spread herby mayo on the inside of the bread instead of butter.
Bread: Light and fluffy White Bread.
Fillings: Any cold continental meats but I recommend Salami, Prosciutto, Chorizo and ham, very thinly sliced apple.
Bread: Garlic and Coriander Naan cut to size. Do not butter, use a kitchen towel to dab a tiny bit of olive oil onto Naan bread or one squirt of spray oil. It's pretty delicate so remove from machine with a spatula.
Cheese: Hard or soft Goats cheese depending on taste.
Fillings: Sliced tikka chicken, small amount of crushed Bombay potatoes.
Extras: Drizzle finished toasties with Raita and serve with a spoonful of mango chutney.
Bread: Thick farmhouse white.
Cheese: Mild or medium cheddar depending on taste.
Fillings: Boiled egg slices, bacon, sliced tomato, sausage sliced lengthways, dry fried mushrooms and spoonful of baked beans. Serve with brown sauce or ketchup.
Quick Tip: Place the ingredients in the middle of the bread and use less than you think you'll need. The sandwich machine will squash it all out and too much filling will explode!
Bread: Lightly fried (still quite soft) white bread with crusts cut off, do not butter.
Cheese: Very small amount of mild cheddar.
Fillings: Sliced, cooked cod or haddock and peas.
Extras: Serve with Tartar sauce or ketchup.
Cheese: Mild or medium cheddar.
Fillings: Tuna mixed with chopped red pepper, spring onion, sweetcorn and diced cucumber.
Extras: Mayonnaise to dip.
Bread: Any dense seedy bread. Poppy and pumpkin seed malted loaf works particularly well!
Cheese: Monterey Jack.
Fillings: Pulled pork (available in most supermarkets), thick BBQ sauce and caramelised onions.
No cheese in these , use just one squirt of butter spray or mild cooking spray on the outside.
Bread: Brioche buttered on both sides with cinnamon butter (OK, this one IS buttered).
Fillings: Chunky apple sauce, pinch of nutmeg, sultanas.
Revenge Of The Chocolate Monkey
Bread: Chocolate swirled Brioche.
Fillings: Sliced banana and Nutella.
Extras: Serve in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream!
Hot Fruit Sundae
(This takes a little prep work)
Bread: Sliced Madeira cake loaf briefly dry fried on each side. WARNING! This falls apart easily so use a spatula to remove from pan and machine.
Fillings: Mixed berries including strawberry, diced apple and pear stewed with a little sugar and drained of excess juice.
Extras: Whipped vanilla cream or ice cream to serve.
Contains alcohol, not suitable for children!
Bread: Brioche coated on the *inside only* with the following mixture - Tablespoon of lemon curd and half a teaspoon of limoncello or other lemon liqueur mixed together briskly.
Fillings: Candied lemon and meringue buttons (available in the baking isle)
Extras: Serve with whipped cream.
Salted Caramel Apple Betty
Bread: Vanilla Brioche.
Fillings: Diced apple, salted caramel sauce and a few small pieces of toffee.
I hope you enjoy trying some of these recipes, let me know if you do and if you come up with some of your own I'd love to know!
Ah the sandwich. Prince of the breakfasts on the move, King of the late night snack, Grandmaster of the workday lunch. I love the little beggars, my recipes are extensive and varied and I include a couple below for your gastronomic delight!
Ham (off the bone is better than processed) Grated cheddar cheese, a lashing of garlic mayo on a brown or white bread roll. Quick and tasty for lunch. Add slices of cold boiled potato to make this into The Tea Spoiler
The Captains Table
Tinned tuna mixed with one large ripe chopped tomato, ground pepper and a tablespoon of plain mayo. Better if granary roll is used. Eat as soon as possible, if you cling film it there is danger of breadsogging!
The Breakfast Special
Crispy Bacon x 3 rashers, eggs scrambled with a drop of milk a knob of butter and a few drops of tabasco.
chopped parsley on top, best on medium cut sliced bread.
The Midnight Cowboy
Three slices of toasted white bread, on the bottom spread lightly with pickle or chutney and a few slices of shaved turkey breast topped with thinly sliced tomato. Add the second slice of toast and on top of this a slice of swiss cheese, thinly sliced ham and a few leaves of lettuce. Spread the third slice with mayo and balance it on top. Serve with plain crisps and a glass of milk. Best late at night with a movie!
When the Spaniard met the Frenchman.
On a white or brown baguette rip up a few slices of salami and finely slicy chorizo, add a few chunks of brie and grill for one minute. Stick a few sliced white grapes into the melted brie. Stick his bready beret on and have with a glass of crisp white wine.
The Meat Hater
Shredded cabbage, carrot, onion and cheese with a small amount of salad cream, weird but wild! Use granary sliced bread.
Viva El Mexico
On a soft tortilla spoon and smooth a couple of tablespoons of hot chilli con carne, a teaspoon of sour cream, sliced avacado and a few Tortilla crisps, fold and place in a sandwich maker or large toaster for a couple of minutes.
Hope these get your tastebuds going, message me if you've got any better ones
It was a late night, i hadn't eaten and i just wanted a cheap and quick snack. When your a student, it's not only hard to find time to eat, it's hard to find the money to purchase why your eating, that's why this cheap and filling baguette is worth making!
I made this for my sisters once and eventhough they usually hate lettuce, they loved it!
Lemon, Chicken and Lettuce baguette? Sounds mad, doesn't it? It tastes great though, trust me!
You'll need a baguette (There's always this deal on in ASDA where you can buy 3 2pack baguettes for £1.50! Bargain!) A Lemon, Shredded Iceberg Lettuce, Ready cooked chicken, Mayonnaise, Butter.
You just cut up the chicken into tiny chunks and mix with mayonnaise.
Slice open the baguette and butter it. Or toast it.
Fling some lettuce onto the baguette, spoon on the chicken and mayo.
Squeeze some lemon over and your done.
Veg and egg sandwich- this is a great substitute to the boring cold sandwiches and is healthy too. I make it for my kid- just a way of giving him some veggies to eat. The below recipe will make 6 sandwiches.
Bread- 12 slices
Boiled eggs- 4
1) First slice all the vegetables and eggs into circles.
2) Spread ketchup on the slices of bread- i actually use Maggi hot and sweet tomato chilli sauce because i like it a bit spicy. This sauce is available in Tescos at the world food/Asian section.
3) Arrange the veg and egg slices on the bread- on the ketchup side.
4) Sprinkle salt and pepper and cover with the other bread slice.
5) It can be eaten as it is but I grill this on a grill pan- just like it hot and like the grill line marks!!!!
This sandwich is best served hot- doesn't taste so good when packed for lunches.
Something slightly different today for me , as well as an app review.
My freind recently came around and we were talking about weird foods (I dont know how this came about) , but anyway he mentioned his favorite sandwich was chocolate spread and peanut butter.
Now I laughed this off but he was adamant that it was a brilliant sandwich, and so the conversation died out and later that evening I was hungry, intrigue pulled down the fillings of chocolate and peanut and with a brave face I tryed.
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM , I was wrong to dispell this culinary creation , the mixture is strange and intresting. The filling seems to be whichever one you really think about , making every bite different. I found that crunchy was even better after another try as you get the taste as well as a satisfying crunch.
The smugness of my freind as It a stroke of brilliance was a little hard to take but it was yummy.
Basically , make a normal sandwich , you know bread on butter an all that. Brown or white doesn't matter. Then layer either way, peanut or chocolate first. Stick that bad boy together and munch away.
Enjoy !!!!!! and let me know what you think if you do try it.
Sandwiches are generally an on the go out of the home food. Children take them to nursery and school, adults take them to work and families have them on day breaks out. Popular sandwiches such as Ploughman's Cheese and Pickle and egg mayonnaise always go down a treat. You can buy sandwiches ready made at your local supermarket, petrol station and sweet shops but i personally prefer home made as you know it has not been handled by anyone else. The best bread to use to make your sandwiches is Hovis as it contains no artificial ingredients and is the bread used by top food outlet Pret A Manger. When using salad in your sandwiches always allow it to drain off well after it is washed otherwise it can tend to make the bread soggy. Fillers such as coleslaw and mayonnaise can be fattening if eaten on a regular basis and try grating your cheese and you will find you use less. Now next time you decide you fancy a quick sandwich what will you choose ready made or home made?
Im currently staying at my grans and I've just been asked what I want for dinner. Knowing the way my mums side of the family work this meal is what I would personally term a snack, usually a sandwich or a few crackers with cheese. You know the sort of people a light meal/snack around 12 and a proper meal at 5ish.
So when asked I decided to go with a specific type of sandwich, a bacon and mushroom one. Now I love fry ups, pies and generally unhealthy food, which I accept isnt the idea of a sandwich but of the few I will eat this is my favourite. Yeah I love bacon ones, sausage ones, even ham ones but there is something special about the bacon and mushroom ones.
So how to make a good bacon and mushroom sandwich:
Fry a handful of mushrooms and 1 or 2 rashers of bacon
Get some bread, preferably white
Fold slice of bread in half then fill. DO NOT place between 2 slices as it gets messy. Add sauces if required.
The taste is quite like a sandwiched fry up, aka godly. Though it does perhap lack the egg and bean taste I think this would just be too messy to even try. Remember as the filling is fried its full of grease and fat, not healthy but possibly messy, if mixed with beans or eggs it really would take the mick.
So we can agree its not good for us but this is one of those times where taste is the important factor. When it comes to technically correct nutritional information, I wouldnt have a clue but when it comes to taste it gets top marks.
A greasy slimy fry up sandwich that wont be bettered until we can buy pie sandwiches.
Try to shy from smoked bacon...just because un-smoked is better...also how does one un-smoke bacon?
Time to tuck in...bet your all jealous :p
We pretty much survived on this sandwich whilst travelling through the australian outback for 2 months!! All you need is a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter (nutty is recommeded), a jar of jam (strawberry is recommended) and a knife.
Spread a generous dollop of peanut butter on one slice and an equally generous dose of jam on the other, bung them together and hey presto - the most delicious sandwich ever!!!
It worked so well for us, because it can easily be made without having to stop driving and the ingrediants can be kept 'quite' well without the need of a fridge. I say quite, because the bread will keep for a day or two quite well as long as its kept in the shade (we went through a loaf a day so it was never a problem). The jam is the same, you need to keep it in the shade as much as possible, but we went through it well before we had to start worrying about it going mouldy! Peanut butter keeps great. You then just need a baby wipte for cleaning the knife!
The fact of the matter is, you can't beat a good ham & cheese sandwich. Thus, I could end my review there...but some people believe I'd need a few more words to warrant a decent rating! So here goes...
A sandwich is obviously one of the easiest and quickest things to make and this is no expection - a lavish ham and cheese sandwich.
1. I'm usually a normal white bread man, although Kingsmill's Best of Both has been doing the rounds in my sandwich life recently, which is fine by me. Wholemeal is fine, but often those loaves with too many seeds in just act as an irritance when you're picking them out of your teeth.
2. Butter the bread. I tend not to do this as it's unnecessary calories/fat for what you're going to add to it soon and the sandwich will rarely be 'dry'.
3. Ham. My weapon of choice here is the Wiltshire Hand-Carved ham you can get from the likes of Tesco or Waitrose. Big fan. Failing that, a decent honey roast ham - ideally from a deli counter and not a vacuum packet is best to give bigger flavour and bigger slices.
4. Cheese. A strong cheddar here please. Quite simply, if you can get your hands on it, use Mull of Kintyre. The God of cheddar cheese in my eyes, if such a Good exists, having discovered the stuff when working on a deli counter in Waitrose as a 16-year old. I believe Asda also sell it pre-packaged in their cheese section. It's not the cheapest so something like Catherdal City or Davidstow could be used instead, but I say if you want it done properly, use Mull of Kintyre!
5. Tomato. Adds a bit more colour and gives it a 'healthy' edge. To an extent. Just slice a normal tomato up and stick 4 or 5 slices across the bread. Plonk a bit of lettuce on it if you like...but obviously don't if you want to make it a toasted sandwich (which I often do) as no one likes wet lettuce!
6. Condiment. Either ketchup or Worcester sauce. If it's toasted then obviously a splash of Lea & Perrins is a must-have. Therefore making it a tasty Welsh rarebit. I tend to dollop some ketchup - always Heinz - on the side of the plate if I toast it
7. Black pepper. Well it would be rude not to add a little bit more of a kick hey?!
And there you go. I recommend toasting it to allow the delicious cheese to melt and grill and give the thick ham an almost bacon/gammon edge. Mouth-watering. And I probably should have pointed this out at the start...not suitable for vegetarians!
When you can't decide what to eat, and you can't be bothered to cook, you can always fall back on a good old sandwich...and sling EVERYTHING in it, rather than be choosy ;)
But seriously, you can have them hot or cold, on millions of different kinds of bread, and with a multitude of fillings, healthy or otherwise and you can't go wrong.
Some favourite recipes go from the more simple cheese and marmite on normal sliced white, the plain lettuce baguette (use one of the part-baked variety, ROUND lettuce rather than tougher iceberg and a bit of salt to taste, substituting butter for mayo depending on what tickles your fancy at the time) the rank cheese and mint sauce sandwich on sliced white loaf, or the more exciting cheese, beetroot, and carvery turkey with mayo in a tiger bread roll (using sliced bread for this one causes it to fall to bits, a tiger rolls crust holds it together) which is truly sublime, especially if you use applewood smoked cheese.
I couldn't go as far as trying a Mars Bar toastie,as I'm more of a savoury gal, but a breakfast toastie (bacon, sausage and cheese toastie-maybe with a few beans) is great for breakfast on the run and the sausage,turkey and stuffing sandwiches our local shop has started making are to die for.
On the whole, the humble sandwich is mans true best friend-the chance to be creative AND get a full tum in one. Although I wouldn't recommend a meatball sub. Yuk.
Thanks for reading :)
I love having friends over for dinner but when they say "yeah we'll pop in for lunch" my heart sinks. What do you serve? You have to think about portion sizes, not doing anything too heavy but not doing something too bland and you also have to resist the temptation to go "actually I know a nice pub that does great food".
So a couple of years ago I came up with this recipe for a thai style steak sandwich (you can substitute the steak for chicken or tuna steaks or you can use portabella mushrooms for vegetarians - i always allow two mushrooms per person). It is easy to make, although it does use a few ingredients which you may not have readily to hand if you are not a seasoned thai food cook at home. But these are readily available in all good (and possibly some bad) supermarkets. You can prepare the steak (or equivalent) a few hours in advance as well so you are not slaving in the kitchen when your guests arrive which is also a big advantage!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Marinating time: 20 minutes to 2 hours
Cooking time: 6 to 16 minutes for steak or fish. Chicken will be 20 to 25 minutes
100 to 200g of rump steak per person (try and get it with as little fat as possible or cut it off). Leave the steak whole and slice after cooking so it doesn't over cook.
a finger's worth of fresh ginger
2 or 3 cloves of crushed garlic (you can use one if this is too strong for you)
1 red chilli, finely chopped (you can deseed if you wish but I prefer not to)
2 tablespoons of thai fish sauce
juice and zest of one lime
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
3 tablespoons of light soy sauce
1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar to taste (you don't need salt due to the salt in the soy sauce and fish sauce - the sugar helps to balance)
a good grind of black pepper
Handful of chopped coriander
Rocket or other salad leaves
a spring onion per person (optional)
ciabatta rolls (the ones which are the same size as you would get from a sandwich shop).
1: Finely peel and chop the ginger.
2: Crush the garlic and add this and the ginger into a large bowl
3: Add the the finely chopped chilli and lime zest
4: Add all the wet ingredients and stir. Add sugar to taste
5: Place the pieces of steak (or equivalent) into the bowl and make sure it gets a covering of the marinade.
6: Put the bowl in the fridge for a couple of hours , turning the meat (or whatever) occasionally so that it gets equal chance to stand in the marinade licquor. You can just marinade for 20 minutes but to really tenderise the meat the longer you can leave it the better. If you are using mushrooms you only need to do this for 30 minutes tops.
7: When you are ready to serve lunch, heat a griddle pan or frying pan with a little oil (or frylite oil if you are being very healthy) and cook the meat to everyone's liking. Rare steak usually takes about 2/3 minutes a side and well done usually 8 minutes a side for the size of steaks you are cooking. Reserve the marinade.
8. Whilst the steaks are cooking split the ciabatta roll and add the rocket or salad leaves.
9: Finely chop the spring onion and reserve for the "drizzle".
10: Once the steak is cooked put to one side on a warm plate for a few minutes whilst you reduce the marinade slightly to form the drizzle for the sandwich. Add the spring onion at this stage.
11: Slice the steak/meat/mushroom and arrange in the ciabatta before spooning over a tablespoon of the reduced marinade and serve with kettle chips or just on its own.
This is a really adaptable recipe and it goes down a treat. The marinade is lovely and rich but fragrant and fresh and the meat is really tender and succulent so you don't need to keep too much fat on it. The marinade drizzle and the meat juices soak into the ciabatta and make it even more moist and yummy. If you are worried about the salt content of some of these ingredients use reduced salt varieties of the soy sauce. It is also surprisingly filling but you don't feel bloated after.
If you wanted a stickier and sweeter version of this you just need to add a couple of tablespoons of honey at step 4 in the method instead of the sugar. This gives the meat a lovely sticky caremalised taste and is totally scrummy.
You can also add button or straw mushrooms and onions if you want to. They can get a quick dip in the marinade and they can be fried or sauteed if you want to bulk out the sandwich.
All I can say about this sandwich is that is always goes down well and is delicious. It is quite an easy way to make a steak sandwich quite posh!
Personally I would rather eat wide varieties of sandwiches rather than most meals so I have great appreciation of a good sarnie selection.
I thought I'd share my favourites, one which has become a favourite of my girlie friends who come over on a Saturday afternoon.
The staple element of any sandwich is bread. What kind of bread you use depends on you, some people only eat white, some like rolls, some believe in the benefits of brown and wholemeal.
So, for the purposes of my personal preference we're going to use fresh wholemeal pre sliced loaf.
For each sandwich you'll need:
2 slices, we're aiming for quality rather than quantity.
One pack of pastrami, which is a highly seasoned and smoked cut of beef. It's usually around £3 a pack and will have around 8 slices per pack. They are long slim slices, a little like bacon and with a rind of ground peppers and spices which you leave on.
One quarter of brie, a soft cheese which you can find in value packs in supermarkets for around 80p or the higher brow brands going up to around £3. Camembert works well too but drowns the flavour of the pastrami a little if it's ripe.
Mango chutney or onion relish. Sharwoods do a variety of mango chutneys from around £1.80 and most supermarkets sell some type of onion relish or similar sweet onion pickle for approximately 80p. Sharwoods have a spicey chutney which I really like on this sandwich sometimes, but it isn't for everyone.
I like to keep the flavour right across the sandwich so I start by using a low fat spread across the first slice of bread then covering the entire surface with pastrami, ensuring it runs up to the edges but one slice thickness is sufficient. Pastrami is reasonably strongly flavoured so you won't need overkill.
Then slice the brie into slim pieces and layer over the pastrami, no need to be so consistant with coverage this time. Brie adds a contrasting flavour which compliments the beef, cools in contrast to the warmth of the pepper and gives a more rounded flavour over all. It also lends itself to creating nice textures.
Now spread either mango chutney or onion relish right across the other slice of bread to your own taste. Too much and it will detract from the brie, too little and the flavour will be lost in the pastrami.
Pickled gherkin can be nice instead of chutney for those who are adventurous enough. Be sure to put it between the pastrami and brie though, otherwise the vinegar soaks into the bread and makes it soggy and wet, then it falls apart and that's no fun at all!
Put it all together and enjoy.
Another favourite in our house is buying a hot chicken, pitta bread and houmous.
You can buy a hot chicken or pieces of in the supermarket from around £1 up to £4 and it will stay fairly hot until you eat it, inside the bag it is served in.
Pittas are around 70p for a pack of minis, they fit in the toaster better than the large ones.
Houmous comes as normal or low fat, with added herbs, with lemon and so on, all of these work well.
We stick the pittas in the toaster, strip the chicken till the toaster pops, split the pitta, butter lightly, pop the shredded chicken inside the hot pitta and add a dollop of houmous to your plate for dip and scoop purposes.
The combination of butter and hot pitta makes a tasty flavour and as he butter melts on the chicken it adds moisture and flavour.
Now with moist toasted bread, warm chicken and a touch of salt from the butter, dipping in houmous gives an added dash of flavours and some healthy accompaniment.
Serving either sandwich with salad or crudites makes for a healthy though slightly high in fat sandwich.
If you try them I'd love to know what you think, they've become visitors favourites in our house.
Everyone love's a sandwich surely!
Everyone can make a sandwich, only a chosen few have mastered it!
For anyone not aware of what a sandwich is, here is what the dictionary say's - "two or more slices of bread or the like with a layer of meat, fish, cheese, etc., between each pair."
I'm going to list my five favourite sandwiches, and you can let me know which you prefer. As you can note from my list I'm not adventures with food in the slightest. My favourite bread has to be wholemeal and thick, every sandwich must be buttered! - Clover all the way.
Cheese and bacon - Tomato sauce
Oven cook the bacon until slightly brown around the edge's. Put the bacon on a freshly buttered piece of thick bread. Place a single slice of mature cheddar on top of the bacon and stick under the grill for around 3 or 4 minutes until the cheese is nicely bubbling. Squeeze on some ketchup and add the top layer of bread.
Chips, Egg and Beans - Tomato sauce
Fry some hand cut chips until golden and soft in the centre, heat the beans on the hob or in the microwave according to the instructions on the tin. Fry on egg for each sandwich and place all ingredients together on a crusty cob. Top with some sauce!
Crisps (preferably cheese and onion walkers)
The crunchier the better, butter two pieces of bread and empty a packet of crisps inbetween. Simple yet lovely! - stronger flavours work much better.
Burger, Cheese and Egg - Barbecue sauce
Aberdeen angus burger cooked under the grill until brown and juicy throughout. Top with mature cheedar and a fried egg. Make sure to use thick bread as the egg can seap through thinner options. Top with Heinz BBQ sauce for a smoky taste.
Sausage, Bacon and Egg - Barbeque sauce
The ultimate combo, grill the bacon and sausage. Start the cooking of the sausage some time before the bacon as it takes longer to cook. Fry an egg and add to the two pieces of meat. Brown sauce also works well on top.
Oh yes, these are all classics in my eye's. Horrible for anyone's diet but indulge sometimes!
This is an interesting sandwich recipe which was passed on to me many years ago from a guy I used to work with. It makes a great after pub snack, and it's making me hungry just thinking about it - however, at first glance it may seem a little weird...
The sandwich is of the triple decker variety and is apparently a variant of a creation made by Dave Lister from Red Dwarf - hence the weirdness. On the whole, the sandwich should be cheap to make, and hopefully you'll be able to find the necessary ingredients in the contents of your fridge / cupboard.

3 Slices of Bread - Brown or White depending on taste
Chili, or Sweet Chili Sauce depending on taste
Butter or Margerine
- - - - -
1. Take three slices of bread and toast them - personally I think this recipe works best with brown bread, but it's down to your personal preference.
2. Whilst the bread is toasting, fry two eggs.
3. Butter two pieces of toast on one side, and the other on both sides.
4. Add a layer of pickle (preferably Branston) to one piece of toast.
5. Take another piece of toast and cover with a thin layer of chili sauce.
6. Take one of the fried eggs and put it on top of the bread with the pickle on it. On top of that, add the slice of bread which is buttered both sides. Now add the other fried egg on top. Finally, put the toast with the chili sauce on top, forming a 'lid' to the sandwich.
It may sound like an unusual combo, and it's probably packed with hundreds of calories - but it's delicious! Go on, you know you want to... or maybe not.
Being a vegetarian means that making myself sandwiches can often be a bit boring and that I am left with the same old Egg mayo or cheese and pickle. To spice things up a little bit, and I literally mean that, I suggest that you try my fajita sandwich idea!
You will need:
Two slices of thick white bread
quorn chicken pieces (or meat if you'd rather!)
avocado or guacamole
This really is very simple. Take your red onion and chop it up before throwing it into a medium heat pan. Let it sweat and brown slightly, before adding the quorn chicken pieces. Let those fry for a further five minutes or until browned. Now you need to add some tomato puree, chilli flakes and paprika or chilli powder. Continue frying this until it's well seasoned then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
On your two slices of bread spread guacamole over them (or mush up the avocado) just like you would a regular sandwich spread. On top of this put a small amount of salsa and chop some cherry tomatoes over the top. Finally add your quorn mixture to the top, grate some cheddar over the top and then add some lettuce in for some crunch.
It may seem like this is a lot of effort for a sandwich, but I would highly recommend it for veggies looking for something a bit different. You could make this with meat too, chicken perhaps? You can always make up the cooked mix at the beginning of the week too, if you are the sort of person who is very busy in the week.
Did you know, though, that the modern sandwich was named after the 4th Earl of Sandwich, who, as legend has it, had his servants bring him this dish in order that he could eat dinner without interrupting his card game. The term "sandwich" has been expanded especially in the USA to include items made with other types of bread, such as rolls and focaccia. It has even been expanded to include the ice cream sandwich, typically consisting of two square cookies with ice cream in the middle.
