Quirky Sandwich Ideas for National Sandwich Day

3rd November 2017

Would you try any of these quirky sandwiches?

A great excuse to discuss sandwiches! Behold… National Sandwich Day! In celebration of this momentous day, we’ve searched high and low to find the quirkiest sandwich filling combinations. Take a read and the VOTE for your favourite…

The sandwich – such a wonderful invention! The classics always hit the spot… from a succulent chicken salad, to a ham sarnie, cheese ploughmans, or a prawn mayo. But it’s great to see we’re getting all foodie on sandwiches now too!  From halloumi to falafel, harissa slaw to red pepper houmous. You can have more than a beef on white now if you want. How about a particular brand of beef, with a horseradish mayo, on an onion bread?

Of course, there’s more unusual concoctions too. Here’s a few sandwiches with a difference we found… dare you to try them!

We’re spoilt for choice now; from bread, to wraps, to rolls, to flatbreads, to rye breads, to thins, to pockets… and so it goes on! We might be breaking the rules surrounding National Sandwich Day by recommending you dig into this pitta breads recipe, but we think this is a winner – and you’re getting some whole grain into your day too!
