Easy Sandwich Recipes
Chicken Pan Bagnat
Literally "bathed bread" in the ancient dialect of Provence, pan bagnat delivers meat, bread and salad all in one handful. You both brush the bread with oil and let the finished rolls sit for a few minutes to allow the dressing to permeate the bread and "bathe" it with flavor.
Egg Sandwich with Mustard Greens and Avocado
"I usually make these sandwiches on days when there isn't enough time to sit down for a proper breakfast," says Sera Pelle, who wraps them in parchment paper for her kids to eat on the go.
Cuban Roast Pork Sandwiches with Mojo Sauce
This recipe makes about 1 cup of citrusy, garlicky mojo sauce, much more than enough for 2 sandwiches.
Vegetable Sandwich with Dill Sauce
Stacked high with slices of tomato, onion, cucumber, avocado, and provolone cheese, this is a vegetable sandwich that even confirmed carnivores will love. You can add or substitute other fresh vegetables; radishes, spinach, or grated carrot go particularly well here. When you can't get good tomatoes, don't buy lousy, cotttony ones; use twice the amount of lettuce instead.
Short Rib Banh Mi with Quick Pickles and Fresh Herbs
These Vietnamese-inspired sandwiches are a clever and tasty way to use leftover beef stew.

Indian Pulled-Chicken Sandwiches
This recipe relies on two time-saving, store-bought ingredients: rotisserie chicken and mango chutney, which adds a hit of instant flavor to the curry-yogurt sauce.
