Perhaps, when you were a kid, a smear of peanut butter and jelly between two slices of white bread was all it took to get you excited for lunch, but times have moved on, right? If you find yourself craving something a little more inspiring during your lunch break, then we have seven scrumptious sandwiches that’ll brighten up your day!
1. The “Angry New Yorker”
We hope you’re not having such a bad day that you fit the name, but even if you are, this satisfying sandwich at Cafe Bravo will make it all better. With tender roast beef, roast peppers, onions, Jack cheese and chipotle aioli on an onion roll, this is just what you need to sink your teeth into when you’re having a tough time at work.
2. Chicken Salad Wrap
Wraps are perfect if you love sandwiches but prefer to have more fillings and less carb-filled bread. Europan’s chicken salad wrap is certainly generous with the fillings – there’s as much chicken breast here as you could possibly want, with an interesting salad of lettuce, tomato, green apple, red onion and dill mixed in.
3. Southern Seitan Sandwich
Vegans! Did you think we’d forgotten you? Not a chance! Seitan is a perfect sandwich filling for the vegan who doesn’t want to miss out on their lunchtime protein boost. Combine southern-fried seitan with caramelized onions and avocado, as in the Southern Seitan Sandwich from V-Note, and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to vegan heaven!
4. Salmon Burger
Our favorite gluten-free option is a delicious salmon patty in an Ezekeil bun, as delivered perfectly by The Organic Grill. Topped with spicy slaw, this is a sandwich that proves that dietary restrictions do not have to limit your access to flavor.
5. The Pittsburgh
We’re sure you usually stick to a healthy diet, but don’t you sometimes have an overwhelming urge to wrap your mouth around a delicious hunk of seasoned meat, topped with oozing melted cheese? Thought so! Try the Pittsburgh, created by Rye House, which is stuffed with Andouille sausage, Provolone cheese, house slaw and fries, all in one sinfully delicious sandwich.
6. B.L.T. Bagel
An old classic with a yummy twist: bacon, lettuce and tomato served in a toasted bagel. Bagels and Bake call this a breakfast B.L.T. but it’s actually available all day.
7. Eggplant Panini
Stuff a panini with roasted eggplant, melted tomatoes, and gooey mozzarella, and what have you got? One beautifully succulent sandwich! If you order this from Flavors, even omnivores won’t notice the lack of meat, as the flavors are so rich and satisfying.
