10 Sandwich Recipes for the Busy You

Disclaimer: Recipes from my The Royal Chef column on Edge Davao.

Peanut Butter–Honey
Not a big peanut butter fan but I love this one. #prayforpeanutbutter
Spread peanut butter on white bread. Layer sliced banana. Drizzle with honey. Grill.

Grilled Cheese
This is my ultimate favorite on any given day.
Remove crust from bread (I use white bread). Spread some mustard mayo on both sides (3 tablespoon mayo + 3 teaspoon mustard). Add slices of cheese and drizzle with honey. Grill.
You can also use wheat bread and focaccia.

Tomato, Cheddar and Mayonnaise
My version of BLT – tomato and some migraine necessities.
Use Jolly Mayonnaise – it’s light and very flavorful.
Trim crusts. Spread mayonnaise, a slice of cheese and slice or slices of ripe tomato. Cut in half and serve as it is or grilled. Most often I add a bit of mustard for that added bold flavour.

Olive Oil-Parsley- Cheese
Often, I add slices of pineapple and tomato.
Mix 3 tablespoons chopped parsley with olive oil. Drizzle the inside of a split loaf of focaccia with olive-parsley mixture. Top with sliced cheese. Cut into squares.

Curried Egg Salad
Imagine devilled eggs sandwich. Yum, right?
Mix 3 chopped hard-boiled eggs, half a teaspoon curry powder and half a teaspoon turmeric powder, garlic powder, mayo-mustard and smoked paprika. Cut white bread into pieces and spread with filling. Normally, I add some freshly cracked black pepper for the added zing.

Veggie Pesto
This also goes well as a pasta sauce.
Trim crusts of bread. Mix 2 teaspoons pesto with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Brush on bread. Top with sliced tomato and grated cheese. Drizzle with more pesto oil.
Can do with as an open sandwich or closed. You can also grill the sandwich for that crust.

Lemon Butter and Tuna
Many find this weird but I love the contrasting flavours.
Mix 1 stick softened butter with 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest. Spread on white bread. Top with tomato, drained tuna flakes and season with salt and pepper.

Salmon-Cucumber Spread
I love me some good salmon. This is very refreshing and perfect for movie nights.
Softened cream cheese on white bread. Sandwich with smoked salmon and sliced cucumber. Trim the crusts and cut into pieces.

Shrimp Salad
This is lunch and dinner rolled in one.
Mix 1 cup chopped cooked shrimp with mustard mayo (3 tablespoon mayo + 3 teaspoon mustard), 1 teaspoon each grated lemon zest and juice. Sandwich white bread with the shrimp salad and cucumber slices. Trim the crusts and cut into pieces.

Crab Salad
Tried this with avocado and it’s so yummy!
Make Shrimp Salad sandwich mix with 1 cup crabmeat instead of shrimp.
