Your favorite sandwich fillings

Hey Hounds,

My lovely pregnant fiancee is now entering her third trimester, and I'm keeping up a steady flow of sandwiches as she heads to work in the mornings (she is inclined to 'forget' to eat once she gets to her desk..)

I have a regular menu of favs: scrambled eggs, prosciutto, avocado, tomato, cheeses. But I'm always looking for ways to make them less boring.

Any favorite sandwich fillings/combinations that y'all would care to pass along?

  1. If you are making a prosciutto, scrambled egg, avo, tomato and cheese sandwich on a regular basis, I don't think you need any help. Can you make an extra for me?
    But,since you asked, my fave sandwich is much more humble but no less satisfying and perfect for a mum to be: peanut butter, honey and banana on whole wheat.

      My mom says she ate a ton of these while she was pregnant with me, and it's one of my favorite sandwiches, too.

    2. How 'bout some hummus with spinach, cucumber, peppers & tomatoes?

      1. Cream cheese and jelly.
        peanut butter and Nutella.
        prosciutto and fresh mozz on crusty bread.
        egg, cheese, ham, fresh salsa, grilled.

        a former bf always liked pb, mayo, banana, potato chips (ick, personally)

        1. Try hummus sandwiches (or fat-free refried beans if she doesn't like hummus). Make sure you add something crunchy - sliced cucumbers, radishes, sprouts, whatever.

          A weird but tasty combo: hummus, roasted eggplant, hard-boiled egg and romaine with pesto. I usually make it in a pita, but you could use bread.

          Roasted/marinated veggies are awesome for sandwiches. Also, try spreads like tapenade, baba ghanoush, tahini, caponata, etc.

          1. Here's a big thread with tons of sandwich ideas. I've been craving sandwiches since reading it!


            Congrats on the baby :)

              Thanks for sending this thread. Fantastic ideas.

              And thanks to all for the above suggestions, particularly the crunchy (cucumbers, duh), also grilled/marinated veggies (duh again) and the hummous.

              Tuesday morning's going to be fun.
