From soggy peanut butter jellys in your lunchbox, sandwiches have come a long way. Rather than stay in the realm of children’s school lunches, gourmet chefs have chosen to make sandwiches their own. So in case you still have a sandwich-prejudice, we want to share with you 5 recipes that will make you remember why the sandwich is an American staple.
1. Lox Bagel Sandwich
The beloved combination of smoked salmon and cream cheese is made for a bagel. This sandwich is a delicious choice for either breakfast or lunch, and for kids and adults alike. Try our special recipe out on your family this weekend!
2. Cheesy BLT Panini
Combine a beloved sandwich: the legendary BLT, with a delicious preparation style: the panini, to make this melt-in-your-mouth masterpiece. This recipe is so decadent, we’d even call it a My Happy Plates delicacy.
3, Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Alfalfa Sprouts, Avocado, and Yogurt Sauce
This sandwich is chockfull of earthy flavors– whole grain bread, avocado, sprouts, and tomatoes. It’s just like something you would find in a cafe at Venice Beach. Hint: just take the chicken out of this recipe for an equally delicious vegetarian version.
4. Rare Roast Beef with Figs and Blue Cheese Baguette
Who can refuse anything on a baguette? We know we can’t. Roast beef gets a serious upgrade in this recipe with the addition of blue cheese and figs.
5. Chicken Salad on Croissant
We’ve found that croissants are the most underrated sandwich bread. The light, buttery pastry pairs beautifully with homemade chicken salad, making this recipe one of our weekly go-tos.
