Sandwich Making Tips

1) Use condiments such as vinaigrettes, pestos, BBQ sauces, chutneys, mayo, butter, cream cheese and salsas.

2) Spread the condiment to the edges of the sandwich to create a seal against wet ingredients.

Add wet ingredients such as lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and cucumbers to the sandwich when you are ready to eat.

3) For toppings most people go with lettuce or tomato that can cause the bread to get soggy. To maintain crunchiness for your sandwich go for the following toppings:

  • Seeds
  • Nuts
  • Shredded cabbage
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Sliced peppers

4) Use the right bread. The moister the filling, the drier and denser the bread should be.

5) Use a good thick crust or large tortillas, for moist fillings. This type of bread will keep ingredients where they need to be.
