If you’re sandwich fanatics like we are at The Daily Meal, this is must-buy for the little kids in your life
If you haven’t noticed already, we’re kind of crazy for sandwiches. From our weekly column featuring the best things between two slices of bread all over the country to our endless recipes, we’re obsessed with all things sandwich.
Though most of us on the editorial team don't have kids yet, it’s safe to say that we’re going to buy this for our nieces and nephews because — let’s face it — we would have wanted one of these sets when we were little. Melissa and Doug’s Sandwich Making Set is ideal to teach the little tykes in your life the art of making a proper sandwich.
The wooden set is interactive and lets kids slice their creations in half and learn how to tell if their ingredients are fresh thanks to the "crunch" sound. It comes with all the right fixings, like lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and cheese — just make sure they know not to really eat it!

Question: Recipes for a Sandwich Maker?
I just bought a sandwich maker from a thrift shop (the one that seals the edges in triangles). It did not have an instruction booklet with recipes. I know a few basic sandwiches but was wondering if anyone has come up with some new ideas.
Love my sandwich maker. Reubens are the best. I use rye bread lightly buttered. Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut and thousand island dressing.
White buttered bread with pizza sauce, mozzerella cheese and any pizza toppings are another favorite.
White buttered bread with apple, cherry or any pie filling for something sweet.
Spray the grids with "pam" and dip the outsides of the bread in egg, place on the grids and fill with sliced ham and some swiss cheese, ooo yum.
A dollop of mixed tuna in the middle of just one (each side), PBJ that is warm can't be beat, scrambled egg and sausage, etc. You can google the brand and get ideas, too. Good luck!
Butter the sides of the bread which will be next to the plates of the machine. You can leave the crusts. We quite like slices of cheese (cheddar or similar rather than processed) with either thinly sliced onion or apples added. You can, if you wish, add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce if you get it in your area.
Am looking forward to picking up more ideas here!
I don't know what everyone else calls them, but around the campfire we'd call them pudgie pies. You can make them w/your sandwich maker though. Butter each piece of bread - open a can (Comstock is what i use) of fruit - whether it be apples, cherries, blueberries, etc. Put in about 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp of filling & cook. A delicious little pie!
I make muffins in my sandwich maker. Just mix up a packaged mix and put in makers. It just takes a few minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Very good !
The sandwich maker is Great for eggs. you can just cook them like you would a fried egg (without all the grease) or you can mix up like scrambled eggs or with omelet fixin's.

How to Set Up
Set up this buffet with the slices of bread in one area, the choice of meats, cheeses, and sandwich fillings next to that with lots of spreading utensils, and condiments last. Plates and lots of napkins are the only tools you need. Keep an eye on the time when you are setting out meats and cheeses for food safety reasons.
All you need to add is some fresh fruit, salads, and cake or homemade candies for dessert, and you've got a party. Consider these menu suggestions:
Popular afternoon tea finger sandwich recipes include cucumber tea sandwiches, smoked salmon tea sandwiches, and watercress-egg salad tea sandwiches. For more tea sandwich recipes, check out this finger sandwich recipe collection.
Although you can buy jams and creams, you can also make them at home. This orange marmalade recipe is relatively simple. Lemon curd is a classic afternoon tea condiment, but it's slightly more complex to make. Other afternoon tea toppings and spreads include mock Devonshire cream, lemon-mustard mayonnaise, rose butter, and herbed butter.
How to Make a DIY Sandwich Bar
Not every party has to require hours upon hours of cooking in the kitchen. In fact, a simple sandwich bar is perfect for a no-fuss-no-cooking-required party spread which is why today I’m going to show you how to make a DIY sandwich bar.
It has been a super busy few weeks – the month of January is always crazy busy at work. It kind of leaves me feeling drained by the time the weekend comes. But what happens when you have guests coming over – perhaps even for the Superbowl next weekend? I was sharing my conundrum with my mother-in-law and she said “why don’t you make a sandwich bar?” Ummmm what? Why hadn’t I ever thought of that? Totally genius (thanks Sonja!)
Sandwiches are super underrated, aren’t they? They’re so simple to put together, and universally loved. A little back story for you – when I was getting ready with my bridesmaids on my wedding day (almost 5 years ago now) I had planned sandwiches – Jimmy John’s – for lunch for the bridesmaids. It was perfect, it wasn’t too heavy a meal and everyone could order what they wanted. I’d like to think I started a trend, because since then I’ve known of at least 5 friends/family who’ve had Jimmy John’s on their wedding day for lunch. Basically what I’m trying to say here is that sandwiches rock, and this would be the perfect food for when you’re getting ready for a wedding or for a simple party.
So after a quick trip to the grocery store and about 10 minutes of prep (if you’re being super fancy and rolling the meat) and you’re all set.
With the right combination of toppings there’s something for everyone!
- Buns – I like to opt for four kinds: white, wheat, and then something fun (like pretzel or sesame topped)
- Meat – there a bazillion and one deli meats to choose from, and people have likes and dislikes, but the three choices everyone seems to love are: turkey, ham, and salami. I got 1/2 a lb of each, and there were 6 people.
- Cheese – the three that are always staples for sandwiches: cheddar, swiss, provolone
- Veggie toppings – there’s something to be said for keeping it simple: lettuce, tomato, and red onion
- Condiments – the three that are always huge hits: mayo, mustard, and sandwich oil (or a vinegar/oil dressing)
For 6 people I got 1/2 a pound of each of the meats and cheeses and two buns per person – it was plenty!
Everyone loved the DIY sandwich bar, and it was super fun seeing different sandwich combinations. Here are some of the combinations people made:
- Italian: sesame bun, mayo, sandwich oil, salami, provolone
- Ham & Swiss: bread, mayo, ham, swiss, onions
- Turkey & Cheddar: bread, mayo, lettuce, turkey, cheddar
When I was looking at different combinations, I realized that most people had made 5 ingredient sandwiches, which is why I’m totally including this in the Five-Ingredient recipe series!
Next time you have guests coming over and are in need of a no cooking required party spread – make a DIY sandwich bar!!

Caprese Breakfast Sandwich
Courtesy of Foodie Crush
This healthy breakfast sandwich uses whole-wheat English muffins for fiber and protein, thick slices of fresh mozzarella (naturally low in fat), and olive and flaxseed oils for heart-healthy fats. This recipe also calls for sliced tomatoes and fresh basil, and they also recommend adding other healthy toppings like avocado and eggs. You just can't go wrong!
Get the recipe from Foodie Crush.
- Assemble the sandwich
- Spread 2 tablespoons of the butter on one half of the bread loaf and a thin layer of mustard on the other. Place 1 to 2 layers of ham, pork, cheese, and, finally, pickles on the buttered bread and top with the mustard-spread bread.
- Smear the remaining butter all over the outside of the sandwich and wrap it completely in aluminum foil.
- Heat your grill to high (550°F) and close the lid. Wait at least 15 minutes before lowering the heat to medium-high (450°F) and continuing.
- Before grilling the sandwich, press down on it with your hands to flatten it. Place the wrapped, flattened sandwich on the grill and top with a brick, grill press, or any other heavy, heat-resistant object. Close the lid and grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side.
- Remove the wrapped sandwich from the grill and take off the foil. Return the sandwich to the grill and grill for about 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until both pieces of bread are crispy and golden brown.
- Remove the sandwich from the grill and cut at an angle into small sandwich wedges (triangles). Place on a large platter and serve while still hot.

20 Tips for Making a Great Sandwich
Every since the 18th century, when the 4th Earl of Sandwich (as legend has it) spent 24 hours at a gaming table, eating only cold slices of beef between pieces of toast, people have been on the quest of making a great sandwich. Sandwiches are enjoyed the world over in various forms. Two things are needed &ndash bread and something to put on it. What that happens to be is up to the sandwich maker. Fancy sandwich shops, and housewives alike will argue about what to put on the bread. But making a great sandwich is a really quite easy, if you follow a few tried and true tips. Recipes: You can also jump down to some sandwich recipes here
1. The spread matters. Yes, you can have dry toast and ham and call it a sandwich, but will it taste great? Maybe not&hellip Get creative with the spread. Butter and mayonnaise are common spreads but if you think outside the box, you may come up with some others. How about ripe avocado for a burst of heart healthy fats? Or chutney, hummus, salsa or BBQ sauce. Basically anything that spreads well can be the start of your great sandwich. And make the spread go right to the edges of the bread to help make a seal to combat moisture in the fillings.
2. Start with a great bread. When I make a sandwich I start by thinking what will go with the bread I have chosen, not by saying what bread can I put with this roast beef. The bread should be the star. No pasty white bread for me! Nosiree! I love crusty whole grain breads that taste just fine with nothing on them, and taste superb with the right toppings.
3. Keep it fresh. You can make the sandwiches for your husband or children the night before and wrap them in saran wrap and put them in the fridge and call it a sandwich. And when they eat it, they will call it a soggy sandwich. But make the sandwich the next morning, or right before it is served and they will ask you to make it again and again.
4. Skip the soggy ingredients. I love lettuce and tomato in a sandwich as much as the next guy, but they are really mostly water and this makes for a soggy sandwich. Think of other things that would give a similar great taste and texture but without all that moisture. Slices of avocado, roasted bell peppers, cucumbers and shredded cabbage all give a lovely taste to the sandwich without making it a soggy mess.
5. Keep it simple. Not all sandwiches need to be Dagwood style. You should be able to get all the ingredients into your mouth in one bite, otherwise you may as well serve it deconstructed with a knife and fork. Aim for 4 or 5 good quality ingredients that go well together and call that good.
6. Achieve Balance. Start with the bread and then choose the protein and cheese that pairs well with it and then add the other few ingredients to make the sandwich a balanced whole.
7. Compliment the bread. If the bread is mild flavored, go for bolder choices for the protein and fillings. If you have a hearty bread, tone down the fillings. And be careful with very spicy and bold items like hot mustard, jalapenos and olives. These ingredients can overwhelm a sandwich in a heartbeat.
8. Add some freshness. Think of what you get on a plate when you dine out and order a sandwich. It is anything but ordinary and always has a dose of healthy freshness. My husband&rsquos work partner used to always want to see what I had come up with for a sandwich for him, because as she put it &ldquoher sandwiches are always so pretty!&rdquo
9. Consider toasting the bread. If you are making the sandwich at home, consider toasting the bread in the oven. Toasting brings out the sweetness of the bread and warms up whatever you put inside the sandwich. Even grated cheese and ham warmed in the microwave can turn a boring sandwich into some gooey deliciousness.
10. Don&rsquot forget the seasonings. Salt and pepper and some mild spices are not just for stove top cooking. They also do wonders for the sandwich fillings too. One of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten was from a hole in the wall diner in Maine where the server added just the right amount of salt and pepper to an otherwise plain chicken salad sandwich.
11. The knife matters. Why make a great sandwich and then massacre it with the wrong knife. (particularly a dull one!) Take a minute to dig out the serrated bread knife, and use a sawing motion and let the knife do the work.
12. Go easy on the onions. Onions can add quite a burst of flavor to a sandwich but raw onions have quite a bite to them. Tame them down a bit by tossing in kosher salt, or soaking them for about 20 minutes in water and then drying them before using.
13. Maximize your left overs. Sandwiches are not just for cold cuts and cheese. Some really wonderful ones are made by using last night&rsquos left overs. Left over roast beef, meatballs, home made turkey and roasted vegetables all make great sandwich fillings.
14. A little Crunch goes a long way. There is nothing quite like a sandwich with crunchy fillings. Get these by washing and storing your greens and veggies in the fridge prior to making the sandwich, using extra crisp lettuce and shredded carrots and other crisp veggies to the mix.
15. Layer it well. We all have our own way of layering a sandwich, but if you put the meat and cheese on the bottom, it helps to combat sogginess. Add watering veggies such as sliced tomatoes in the center and then add the crisper ones on the top layer.
16. Wrap Properly. Sandwiches are best eaten right after they are made for maximum flavor. But if you must pack one, please do it properly. Greaseproof paper, or baking paper, such as parchment paper, is ideal for helping to keep a sandwich at its best.
17. Tips for kid&rsquos sandwiches. Keep their appetite in mind and make them a smaller sandwich than one you would make for an adult. Kids get very frustrated if the sandwich they are eating is messy and hard to manage. Make the ingredients colorful and cut the sandwiches into fun shapes before wrapping. This adorable school bus sandwich is shared from Three Boys and a Dog. Get her recipe here.
18. Think like a restaurant. Serve warm sandwiches on hot plates and cold sandwiches on chilled plates for the optimum dining experience.
19. Think in waves for your protein. A great looking, and tasting, sandwich have the protein placed on the bread in a wavy motion, instead of flat on the bread. Eating it just seems more pleasurable and the other flavors seem to mix better than a flat chunk of protein all glued together.
20. Match ingredients to the bread. If you have thin slices of bread, don&rsquot overload them with ingredients. By the same token, very hearty bread needs more than just a slice of cheese or you will have a dry mouth feeling that is not great at all.
