When I did weight watchers I came acrossed a sandwhich that is now a family favorite.

We take a bagette and cut it into one-sandwhich sections and then lengthwise. On one half we put a mix of mayo and dijon mustard, a thinly sliced granny smith apple, and a piece of munster cheese.

On the other half we put thick sliced turkey (left overs from a roast or deli style if I've not cooked a turkey breast lately), basil leaves and another slice of munster.

You stick both halves on a cookie sheet under the broiler and brown up the cheese a little before putting them together into sandwhiches.

This makes for an excellent meal. Although it is satisfying as is, we have made some alternatives over the years, using roast beef and pears or ham and pineapple instead, but they turkey is our favorite!


Meredith, YUM! I love a good grilled emmentaler cheese n apple sandwich. Now I will try it with turkey...or ham! Thanks for the tip!


We do NOT have a sandwich night, but now I'm wondering why. I think I might need to venture over to the Italian neighborhood to stock up on some great meats.


Your sandwich looks delicious! We love sandwiches too. Often, it's just swiss cheese on sourdough, pressed, buttery, melty and crunchy in the George Forman. Another favorite, although this stretches the definition of sandwich, is scrambled eggs, cheese and salsa rolled up in a tortilla. I am so pleased that you are posting more in FamilyFood!


I'm not a sandwich meat kind of girl - but I do like a good vegetarian submarine. There is a shoppe downtown that makes the very best! It has a zesty avacado spread, lettuce, tomato, sprouts and homemade baked bread. It's so basic...but so lovely.


Usually my parents cook dinner and so I don't actually get to choose anything for that meal. However, for lunch every once in awhile I'll make a homemade banh mi. We take a banh mi baguette and slice it lenghwise, put in some sliced Vietnamese cha lua (a type of mortadella), cucumber slices, cilantro, julienne carrots, sriracha sauce and mayo.

The Aitch

Oh I reaally overdo it with my sandwiches, but they do involve a toaster oven so to me it's gourmet.

I like Sundried or cajun turkey breast, swiss cheese, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber (peeled, de-seeded, halved and sliced), mushrooms, lettuce and avocado.

First I take a good sourdough sandwich roll with a chewy crust and soft middle and on one side I put the meat with cheese on top and the mushrooms and onions on top of the cheese. Then tboth sides are put in the toaster oven to melt the cheese and get the onions and muchrooms a little crispy and to toast the other side of bread.

When it's done I layer on the fresh veggies on the cheese side and slather the other half with best foods mayo.

It's big and sloppy. Yum!


One of my favorite sandwiches that i make for my husband and I is a "Cuban" . It is really a mock cuban, but darn good.
I take a good crusty bread, spread barbecue sauce, place a few slices of spanish pork and ham, your favorite cheese and sandwich pickle slices. Put it under the broiler or grill on top of the stove. Very tasty.


seriously drooling

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
