How to Make Sandwiches | Recipes and Fillings

What I have done on this page is simply list quick sandwich recipes that you can make with everyday items available in your kitchen. I haven’t provided full details on how to make the sandwiches, just simply listed the contents that go into making the various sandwich filling which you can use with any types of bread. I have also listed below items which you can add to any sandwich in order to give it a different taste.

Please do experiment and share with us what works and what doesn’t!!
Ok, the items you can use to add to any sandwich fillings are:

  • Raisins
  • Olives
  • Sweetcorn
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • Nuts
  • Coleslaw
  • Pickles
  • All types of bottled condiments/sauces
  • Any types of veggies
And now, here is the list of various quick sandwich fillings you can make in super fats time and store away in your fridge. Note that any mayonnaise and meat based fillings should be used asap as there nothing worse than and sandwich that has gone off and become bacteria friendly!

Dice onion and add to cheese as per your taste. The addition of some mayonnaise gives this filling a rich taste

Cheese and Pickle Sandwich Recipe

Cut cheese into slices and dice pickles. Add pickles on top of each chesses slice. Bottled pickles such as Branston work the best.

Cheese Salad Sandwich Recipe

  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato
  • Beetroot

Mix the ingredients as desired and add/remove any veggies you don’t like. Adding two types of chesses is nice when making this filling

Mix the tuna (drain first!) and mayo together well. Dice the onion and red pepper and add to the mix. Add a touch of hot sauce to the mix and you're ready to go!.

Tofu Sandwich Recipe

Fruit Sandwiches

These are great for kids.

  • Honey
  • Dried fruits
  • Nuts
  • Cream cheese
  • Peanut Butter
  • Raisins

Add as many or as little of these ingredients as you like to the mix. The base ingredient will either be peanut butter or cheese. Add the other ingredients as you like.

Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwich Recipe

A great recipe for kids, although I love these sandwiches too!

  • Strawberry Jam
  • Peanut Butter

Spread the peanut butter on the bread and add a layer of jam over it. Repeat as necessary. The addition of a few raisins or nuts to this is also great.

Ok I’m done for now. I think these sandwich recipes give you plenty of different options to play within your kitchen. These will make great sandwiches for any occasion.

Once you prepare any of these sandwich fillings, make sure you store them in an airtight fridge safe container and use them within three days. Also, once you prepare sandwiches chill them in the fridge for 30 mins before serving

Hopefully these ideas will add some ‘umph’ to your sandwich making efforts!

Side Note: These sandwich fillings make great nacho dips too, so now you can make sandwiches and save leftovers for parties!

Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know that I tried the Veggie Sandwich recipe for a youth meeting (with 70 youth) and I swear, they were all raving about it, even two or three days AFTER the event! It has become a staple in my own family as well. Keep up the great blog!
