August is National Sandwich Month and that's definitely something to sink your teeth into. There are almost as many ways to celebrate as there are types of sandwiches:
There are so many tried-and-true sandwiches out there but a little creativity and personalization goes a long way. Switch things up -- use different breads, spreads and main ingredients. Try different hot sandwiches for more of a mealtime feel. Go open-faced or piled high. The possibilities are endless!
Try something a little different: Use raisin bread for this sandwich with a filling of thinly sliced apples, a lettuce leaf, peanut butter and apricot jelly mixed with a bit of ground mustard.
Replace the jelly in your usual PB & J with slightly mashed bananas. Sprinkle on a little granola to give your sandwich some crunch.
Cut the crusts of the bread and roll the bread flat. Spread your favorite ingredients (think peanut butter and jelly -- the stickier the spread, the better) over 2/3 of the bread. Roll, starting with the end with spread and press firmly to seal at the end.
Thread, alternating ingredients, onto a skewer. Serve with dressing of your choice on the side.
What a way to start the day! Check out these ingredients to make a delicious breakfast sandwich:
