Ah, the sandwich. Once considered a bland but reliable lunch staple, sandwiches have enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity thanks to the ever increasing number of cafés and sandwich shops competing to outdo one another with the quality and creativity of their products. Indeed, the sandwich is a canvas on which one can be endlessly creative - meats, cheese, salad sauces, bread type...not to mention the decision between serving it hot or cold.
This varied collection of sandwich recipes should provide plenty of inspiration for livening up your lunch. Nathan Outlaw's Bacon and egg club sandwich recipe is a triple layered, cheese filled treat not for the faint hearted, while Oliver Denton's Pulled beef rolls are equally packed with filling and flavour. At the daintier end of the spectrum Helen Graves shares a recipe for Cucumber sandwiches, the perfect light savoury bite to accompany an afternoon tea, and her ultimate Egg mayonnaise sandwich recipe puts the definitive spin on this well loved classic.
