Sandwiches are underrated. It’s incredible how much flavour, texture and punch can be packed between two slices of bread. Welcome to my Sandwich Series: a series of simple but creative sandwich recipes you can recreate on your own either to spice up a dull work day or maybe just for a quick snack. I like to think that the secret is in the bread, or in some cases substituting traditional sandwich bread with naan, pita, thick and sturdy iceberg lettuce leaves or in the below recipe, a sliced, toasted bagel.
Make sure you check back regularly for new Sandwich Series recipes and photos. If you have some sandwich ideas, recipes or know of a cool deli serving delectable sandwiches, please email me pronto firstname.lastname@example.org : I’m always ready to make or taste a really good sandwich.
Take caution though, that if you’re going to take the risk of sticking your carefully packed sandwich in the communal office fridge like Ross from Friends, make sure you guard it with your life!
