Chuck’s Sandwich-Making Tips

  • Have fun with leftovers. Sandwiches are a great way to transform leftovers into a delicious snack or meal. Try unusual fillings to make the most out of leftover food.
  • Plan ahead. Gourmet-inspired ingredients such as caramelized onions, seasoned mayonnaise, and roasted red peppers can take a sandwich from ho-hum to amazing. Prepare ingredients that require a little extra effort ahead of time or on the weekends when you’re less busy and keep them in the fridge to use all week.
