I spent three days of my holiday break on a quest to make the perfect French onion soup, beginning from scratch with the beef stock. And while it was incredible, it is not very often that I have the time or energy to really put that much effort into dinner. I decided there must be an easier way, and as it turns out, there is! Basically, I seem to prefer my soup in sandwich-form.
Creamy tomato soup, crisp grilled cheese. Is that the quintessential winter lunch or what? Do like to dip your grilled cheese sandwich right into the soup? I do. It takes me right back to childhood. Are there other soup and sandwich combos that you love to eat? Maybe you have a soup and sandwich pair you love, even if it can't beat tomato soup and grilled cheese for sheer nostalgic value. What is it? What soups and sandwiches just belong together?
Beans and grains, we love you in veggie burgers, but we're asking you to take a backseat for this one. Like their namesake, the star ingredients in these 10 recipes are all vegetables. From beets to micro sprouts, broccoli to corn, your veggie burger just got a lot more colorful and garden-friendly.
There's something so simplistic about a plain old turkey wrap dunked in homemade honey mustard. Still, these lowly sandwiches got me through college, and they even made an appearance at my recent engagement party. (What can I say, I know what I like.) For some reason, they never get old.
A tuna fish sandwich is a classic lunch choice, but for a variety of reasons some people are staying away from tuna these days. Here's a vegetarian (and vegan) alternative version for those who miss that tangy, creamy lunchtime treat. Ask any mermaid you happen to see, this version is a winner!
Fall means the return of football and, more importantly in my book, the return of football parties filled with great food. And what's better to feed a hungry fall crowd than a big sub? Forget those stale supermarket variety subs and read on for four fresh and hearty sub recipes!
Is a sandwich still a sandwich if those yummy ingredients aren't bookended with sliced bread? We won't take time to debate the logistics, but we do know there are other options! Want to see what's on the list?
Recently, I noticed a friend posting really cute photos on Facebook. But these weren't photos of her kids (who are also very cute); they were photos of the lunch she packed for her son each day. And, as you can see, they aren't ordinary sandwiches and Octavia is no ordinary mom!
There's nothing like topping a sandwich with fresh, crunchy, nutritious sprouts. Make them even more fresh, crunchy, and nutritious by growing them yourself right on the kitchen counter. When it comes sandwich (or salad) time, just pick and rinse!
