There are so many things that can be celebrated… not talking about the days the church or the state decided to give you a day off. Nowadays almost every day is a day of celebration. A lot of foods have their day once a year. For example the Day of German Beer, World Bread Day, Pancake Day, a day dedicated to hummus, carrots, apples and much more. Americans are the most creative when it comes to such celebrations. If you take a look at “Foodie Calendars” online, you will see that most of those days have been created and are celebrated in the U.S. I don’t think all of those days are really necessary, but some days I really like ;)
Cookie Day or Brownie Day – I mean come on – who would not want to celebrate that with cookies or brownies? Those days are not too far away in December – just F.Y.I ;) This week is something else on the list to celebrate: Sandwiches! Yes – even Sandwiches have their own special day and probably get more attention than I do on my birthday cause everybody likes sandwiches :P Throughout the year there are even more specific sandwich days – this week we celebrate the general sandwich day I guess. There is also a Cuban sandwich Day and a Monte Cristo Sandwich Day… crazy, right? ;) Well… since I have no selection of Cuban sandwich recipes, I decided to go for the general sandwich day and show you some of my favorite sandwich recipes from the blog.
Yes, this is a baking blog and you can also find recipes for sandwiches, burgers, wraps and more ;) Quite a big selection already to be honest. Sometimes I bake bread and in addition to that, I make other recipes with it. Sandwiches are the logical next step most of the time :P Well… enough babbling – let’s get to the top six sandwich recipes I think you should know about!
These delicious Green Sandwiches are made with avocado, mozzarella, and a special green mayonnaise and one of my favorite sandwich recipe. It seems not only my favorite recipe – it is actually one of my most pinned (German) recipes on Pinterest ;) Not surprised though – I think they look really delicious and since I ate them, I KNOW they are DELICIOUS! ;) Maybe I should also think about a red or yellow version… what do you think?
I think this was the first sandwich recipe I posted on my blog back in the days. This is basically where it all started ;) I had baked several focaccias for the blog and used those pieces of bread as a base for one of the most popular sandwiches in the U.S.: the Muffaletta Sandwich. New Orleans is the origin of this delicious sandwich with various layers of cold cuts, provolone and a mixture of olives, artichokes, onions etc. It is so good! Once you made it, you will make it over and over again. It’s addictive
When one of my readers saw this recipe, she asked me, if I had no more ideas what to make for the blog since this seemed to simple for her. Just a plain old club sandwich ;) Well.. first of all – the ideas are still coming and there is no end of that anywhere near. Second – even simple recipes have a right to be published here on this blog. As long as something is delicious, I will show you. Also… you still need a good sauce for a great sandwich – and that is sometimes not an easy task :P Well… maybe here too, but the Club Sandwich was too good not to show it. End of story :P
As soon as you make toast at home from scratch, it is quite obvious you will end up making sandwiches as well with that homemade toast. That’s what happened here – I published an easy recipe for toast and decided to make some sandwiches as well for the blog. I was going through a phase where I was making eggs sunny side up several times a week, so I thought “a nice sandwich with an egg that is spilling out the egg yolk would be awesome”. Said and done. It’s much better when you got a sandwich underneath a fried egg ;) Get the recipe for the Roasted Chicken Sandwich here.
The list would not be perfect without a grilled cheese sandwich. I have several of those as well on the blog but one of my all-time favorites is this Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Kimchi. It’s hot, but not too hot. I made it with homemade Kimchi but of course, you can use store-bought Kimchi from the supermarket. I hope you know a good place for Kimchi ;) If you like that Korean cabbage I also got a nice recipe for a Pizza with Chicken and Kimchi… there is so much you can do with it :P
BTW: April 12th is Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day ;)
I am not a 100% sure if these Dark Beer Roasat Beef Sliders belong in the sandwich category. Normally you would say they are burgers I guess. Most sliders have little burger patties but these here are made without them. Instead of the patties, I added some roast beef, mushrooms, onions, and cheese. So that could work as a sandwich, right? ;) The sliders are baked/grilled and soaked on a dark beer glaze – the combination of all of that is insanely delicious! You should try – no matter if it’s a sandwich or a burger ;)
