Cold Cuts + Meat Sandwiches

Turkey, ham and salami cold cuts are all at home on a sandwich—but these deli meats can be used in many other ways. We like to add thin strips of salami to pasta carbonara and cheesy frittata, smoked turkey to spaghetti and thinly-sliced chicken to spinach salad. One of our favorite deli meats is high quality pastrami—there are few sandwiches more delicious (or iconic) than a Reuben. Piled high on rye bread with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing, it's a New York deli classic. Try David Burke's simplified version at home—you'll need a knife and fork.

Fried Chicken Sandwiches with Anchovy-Garlic Dressing
2019 F&W Best New Chef Caroline Glover's crispy fried chicken sandwich starts with her Ultimate Buttermilk-Marinated Fried Chicken Breasts, which get drizzled with a creamy homemade anchovy-garlic dressing, fresh radicchio, Castelvetrano olives, and spicy Calabrian chiles. The dressing gets an additional umami boost from Parmesan cheese and a balancing touch of acidity from white wine vinegar. It all adds up to make one incredibly flavor-packed, satisfying sandwich.
Muffuletta
This classic Muffaletta sandwich gets its flavor from layers of cheese, Italian meats, and tangy olive relish stuffed into perfectly crusty ciabatta. The ideal make-ahead meal, this sandwich should rest at least an hour to let the flavors meld, but it is delicious the next day, too. Slideshow: More Sandwich Recipes
