Your favorite sandwich fillings
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?
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.
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)
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.
