A sandwich becomes humdrum after eating the same variety day after day. Condiments and toppings can change the flavor, but when the filling never changes, a sandwich eventually becomes boring and drab. Instead of eating the same lunchmeat, meat spread, or peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day of the week, consider these unique sandwich spread and filling ideas. Whether you are hosting a party and want tasty finger sandwiches, or whether you simply want something different to pack for brown bag lunches, these unique sandwich filling and spread ideas will spice up an otherwise boring meal.
Unique Egg and Bacon Salad
When trying to come up with unique sandwich spread and filling for any occasion, try egg and bacon salad. Anyone that loves the flavor of eggs combined with bacon will love this flavorful and unique sandwich filling. Begin by scrambling an egg along with crisp bacon bits. Mix the cooled egg and bacon with approximately one tablespoon of whipped salad dressing. Serve this flavorful spread on two slices of toast.
Spicy Beef and Egg Spread
Do you have leftover roast or other prepared cuts of beef? Try something unique and mix shredded beef with one tablespoon of chili sauce and one chopped scrambled egg to create a tasty sandwich filling. Spread this spicy beef and egg filling on thick crusty slices of bread along with crunchy pickles or mild pepper rings.
Unique Green Olive and Ham Spread
A ham sandwich is tasty but hardly unique – unless it is cooked, ground, and mixed with bits of green olives and mayo. Grind or shred enough ham for one sandwich, and stir in enough mayo to make the filling moist. Add about five chopped green olives stuffed with pimentos. The salty olives and pimentos will taste fantastic with the smoky ham filling, and it will become a favorite sandwich for parties or luncheons.
Crunchy and Chewy PB&J
Adults enjoy an occasional peanut butter and jelly sandwich as much as kids, and it is possible to add a unique twist to this classic filling. Simply stir a random amount of raisins and chopped pecans into peanut butter, and spread it onto two slices of bread. Spoon the jelly over the center, and spread it out evenly. The peanut butter filling will help keep the bread from becoming soggy, and this unique sandwich spread will taste great.
Creamy Shrimp Spread
Seafood lovers enjoy unique and creamy shrimp filling instead of the usual tuna salad spread. Chop one-quarter of a small green pepper, and mix it with chopped drained shrimp and enough mayonnaise to achieve a desirable consistency. Spread this unique filling on white bread for a delicious sandwich that is sure to become a fast favorite.
Unique Dessert Sandwiches
When searching for the ideal dessert for a party, try a sweet and tasty dessert sandwich. Combine whipped cream, chopped nuts of your choice, a dash of vanilla, candied fruit, and enough powdered sugar to create a creamy consistency. Spread the filling on white bread with the crusts removed, and cut the sandwich into bite-size squares. Not only is this sandwich spread unique, but it is truly delicious.
