We’re not huge sandwich eaters here in the frugal household, We do, however have a few favorite things that we can’t seem to resist. While most of the below can’t make any health claims, my gosh are they good.

  • 028Breads & Such: Some of these sandwiches are made on “specialty” breads. Links are provided in the recipes, but if you’re interested, check out my Bread page for others.
  • Cornish Pasty2Cornish Pasties: These are wonderful pockets of pastry wrapped around a filling of potato, onion and thinly sliced beef. Passed down by Cornish coal miners, these are an experience.
  • 008Chipotle Chicken: My son is wild about it and orders the Chicken Burrito every time he goes, which is as often as he can get there. And he isn’t the only one that likes Chipotle. Here’s my version.
  • Da Bomb Oven Roasted Hamburgers: bak1So often hamburgers are a hassle and/or a mess, not so these! No standing over these burgers, no spatter, no dryness and no dangerous “char.”
  • Deviled Ham: 035A spread for a sandwich or crackers this is one of m guilty indulgences after a ham.  Somehow, it doesn’t seem quite right to me to spread on anything but white bread.
  • Egg Salad SandwichesEgg Salad Sandwiches: I didn’t used to use a “recipe” for egg salad, but then I was always fiddling with it…Here is the absolutely perfect combo of egg, mayo and seasoning.
  • FalafelFalafel Sandwiches: These are wrapped in a home-made Flat Bread. With a little prep, falafel can be waiting, ready for a quick fry and assembly – I often make the falafel the evening before.
  • Fruited Chicken SaladFruited Chicken Salad: This is a fantastic dish for a salad or a sandwich – serve on a plate with a fork, though, just in case. A great use of a little left over chicken it’s an oldie but a goodie.
  • 052Hot Broiled Sandwiches: A fun way to rework left overs from a Thanksgiving Turkey or a Holiday Ham. Raid your fridge and layer ingredients on a an open-faced sandwich.
  • hot brownLight Hot Browns: Another great way to take advantage of any left over Turkey or Ham, Hot Browns are layered with meat, a little bacon and vegetables and blanketed with a Cheese Sauce.
  • Reuben SandwichReuben Sandwiches: An absolute classic of a sandwich, not only especially inexpensive using left over corned beef, the corned beef cooked at home is so much better than Deli Meat.
  • 045Runza’s: Handed down for generations by midwestern immigrants, these pockets of dough were probably the inspiration for hot pockets. Of course, there is no comparison.
  • 133Shrimp Po’ Boys: Adapted from a Tyler Florence recipe (he has deep Southern roots) these Po’ Boy sandwiches are out of this world. Better than any I’ve ever had in a restaurant…
  • Sparrow Veggie BurgerSparrow Tavern’s Veggie Burger: A burger even carnivores love, ripped off from Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dive’s. Truly delicious, crunchy outside, and a flavor so good you wouldn’t expect it!
  • sloppy JoeZesty Sloppy Joes: Makes a huge amount, which great, because these are really good! Recipe is ideal for a party, planned left overs or freezer meals. Why not serve as sliders for a game day party?
