National Sandwich Day 2020

National Sandwich Day 2020

No matter how you do it, do sandwich day right with mDesign!

National Sandwich Day is today, and I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good sandwich. There are so many to choose from, build your own, or order. Breakfast sandwiches, dessert sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, finger sandwiches, the list is endless!!!

To help you celebrate, we wanted to give you some recipe ideas for any meal of the day.

Truly the most important meal of the day, breakfast sandwiches are easy, filling, and the perfect way to kick of any morning. Try this fried egg grilled cheese sandwich recipe below:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices of bread, thick Texas style
  • 4 slices cheese, I used Colby jack and pepper jack
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. Butter one side of each piece of bread, set aside.
  2. In a frying pan, melt a little butter over low heat.
  3. Fry eggs so the yolks are cooked how you like them.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Once done, remove from flame.
  6. In a separate frying pan, add a slice of bread, buttered side down.
  7. Add a slice of Colby jack cheese.
  8. Top with two fried eggs.
  9. Add a slice of pepper jack cheese on top of the eggs.
  10. Top with another piece of bread, buttered side up.
  11. Cover pan with a lid and cook until cheese is melted, and bread is golden brown on both sides.

It’s easy to stop by a Subway or a Burger King on your lunch break and grab a sandwich and head back to work. But most likely these aren’t the healthiest options. Instead, try a healthier route like this grilled chicken broccoli wrap. It’s quick to prepare and won’t have you regretting it by dinner time.

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 6 flour tortilla wraps, 8-10 inches wide
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. In a shallow bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon olive oil along with the oregano, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken to the bowl and coat in the seasoning mixture.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the remaining tablespoon olive oil. Transfer the chicken to the skillet and cook until the juices run clear, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and allow it to cool, then slice each breast into strips.
  3. In a steamer set over boiling water, steam broccoli, covered, until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes.
  4. In the center of each tortilla wrap, spread the sour cream evenly, then add the chicken, broccoli, and cheese. Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the filling, folding in the sides, then roll until you reach the top of the wrap.
  5. Add the wraps to a panini or the skillet used to cook the chicken with the seam side down, and press gently for about 3-4 minutes total, until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.

Sandwiches are one of the easiest dinner options for you, your kids, the whole family! If you want to celebrate National Sandwich Day and have the family join in, here’s a delicious tuna melt recipe everyone will enjoy.

  • 1 can chunk light tuna well drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon minced white onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced celery
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices bread of choice
  • 4 slices cheddar or marble cheese
  • Extra mayonnaise for "buttering" the bread slices
  1. Flake the tuna with a fork, then combine the tuna, mayonnaise, onion, celery, relish, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
  2. Slather two pieces of bread with mayonnaise like you would use butter, then place into a large skillet, mayonnaise side down.
  3. Place a cheese slice onto the bread.
  4. Spread the tuna mixture over the cheese slices. Place a cheese slice on top.
  5. Use the mayo to "butter " the remaining two slices, then place on top, mayonnaise side up and out.
  6. Heat the pan to medium heat and cook until the bread is lightly browned on the bottom.
  7. Flip the sandwiches carefully to the other side, then cook until the other side has browned.
  8. Remove, slice in half, and serve.

Of course, last but certainly not least, dessert! That’s right, sandwiches can be enjoyed in the dessert style as well! Here’s a fun recipe idea you can try and really wow your significant other or friends: the strawberry-Nutella® panini.

  • 2 slices bread (Challah bread preferred!)
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • ½ cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar mixed with a dash of cinnamon
  1. Brush the bread with butter.
  2. Flip the bread over and spread the Nutella on one piece.
  3. Layer strawberries on top of the Nutella and add the other slice on top (butter-side-up).
  4. Put the sandwich in your pre-heated panini press for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the sandwich and sift powdered sugar on top. Cut in half and eat!
