When making your new sandwich creation, there are just a few things to keep in mind:
A. Use the best quality ingredients you can find. It makes a fresher tasting sandwich.
B. You can use any bread you wish, from white to wheat to even whole grain and sourdough. Use your favorite bread to enjoy your sandwich more.
C. Use a generous amount of the filling. No one likes a skimpy sandwich, but be mindful of the bread that you are using and adjust the amount accordingly.
D. If you do not plan to eat the sandwich just after it is same (say you are making it for the next day’s lunch) wrap the sandwich in wax paper and then cover tightly in foil.
Enjoy a different sandwich to give your meal a different twist anytime you want to try something new.
