Turkey Sandwich on Pretzel Roll

 

This is one of those cases where the fancy bread MAKES the sandwich.  The pretzel roll was dense but soft, and sweet, with a hint of buttery saltiness on the outside…so yummy.  Here’s what I used:

  • Pretzel roll
  • A blend of mayo and yellow mustard
  • A few slices of honey turkey
  • Cooper cheese (or any sharp American…cheddar might be good too!)
  • Lettuce
  • A few slices of tomato
  • Slivered red onion

You really can’t go wrong with that combo!

BBQ Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough Bread

This had an amazing flavor profile.

(That sounds so sophisticated and chef-like, and makes me feel like I’m on Food Network Star.) 😉

The sourdough was a perfect bread to complement the subtle BBQ flavor and the fresh veggies.  I loved it.

To make this yummy creation, you will need:

  • Sourdough bread, sliced
  • BBQ sauce (I blended mine with half mayo, for creaminess, but you can just use BBQ sauce if you’re so inclined)
  • Shredded or chopped chicken
  • Cheddar slices
  • Lettuce
  • A couple slices of juicy tomato (make ’em thick!)
  • Some slivered onion of any kind

This might make a tasty panini, too!

Pesto Chicken Sandwich with Cucumber

This sandwich is very fresh! 

 I thought as I was making it, “This needs a tomato!”  But I was all out.  So I stuck some thinly sliced cucumber in there instead, and completely forgot the lettuce because it was so tasty and fresh!

Here’s what you need:

  • Ciabatta or focaccia bread, sliced lengthwise
  • A mixture of equal parts mayo and pesto, slathered liberally on the bread
  • Some chopped chicken (I used leftover rotisserie chicken, but grilled would have been even better!)
  • Slices of mozzarella cheese, as thick or thin as you like
  • Lettuce, if you’re smart (don’t be like me)
  • Cucumber slices, thin
  • Slivered red onion
  • Tomato, if you have some, unlike me

Layer it all on in that order, and you have a tasty, fresh sandwich with a little crunch and a little zing. Enjoy!

Sandwiches and Friends Around the Web – Oct. 2014

Some sammiches I’ve seen that make my mouth water to try them!  None of these are mine and I haven’t made them (YET) but you can go to the blog where I found them by clicking the image or the blog title in the caption above.

Now, I don’t like spicy food, but this looks so good anyway!!  Turkey-Brie Sandwich with Peaches and Arugula from Lemon Tree Dwelling.

I REALLY want to try making waffle sandwiches…using waffles for the bread!  I got the idea from using pumpkin waffles for Thanksgiving sandwiches, but then I found this Huffington Post list of waffle sandwiches….yuuuuum!  This one looked especially tasty, from a blog called A Beautiful Mess.  Eggs, bacon and avocado on cheddar waffles!

Happy sandwich inspirations!
