Ham and Camembert Baguette Sandwich
The crusty baguette provides the perfect foundation for this savory and sweet sandwich. Pile on some ham, Camembert cheese and a quick spread of fig jam, and indulge in a little escape to France with every bite.
Toasted Turkey, Brie and Apple Sandwich
Another take on the savory sweet sandwich, this turkey, brie and apple sandwich is a bit of a play up on the more classic turkey club. Served on toasted rye bread, it has just the right amount of crunch to offset the creamy cheese texture.
End-of-the-Week Deli Sandwich
This sandwich is a great way to clean out the fridge of leftover deli meats at the end of a long week. Simply throw whatever meats and cheeses you have together with a simple dressing of mayonnaise and pesto, dress it up with a bit of arugula, and you are in for an Italian-style deli sandwich that will leave you smiling.
Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This is no ordinary grilled cheese sandwich. Creamy asiago or mozzarella cheese is melted down over tomato, basil and prosciutto. Add a quick sprinkling of olive oil and red pepper and you have a divine grilled cheese that is unlike any other.
Warm Eggplant and Goat Cheese Sandwich
If your looking for something without the meat but that is equally hearty, this eggplant sandwich is the way to go. The warm, soft goat cheese pairs perfectly with the tender grilled eggplant. Put together on a simple rustic roll, this is one great sandwich.
