A sandwich is a dish consisting of one or more pieces of bread with one or more fillings between them, or one slice in the case of an open sandwich.
Sandwiches are a common type of lunch food often eaten as part of a packed lunch.
There are many types of sandwiches, made from a diverse variety of ingredients.

Popular Sandwich Types

This is a list of notable sandwiches.

  • Closed Sandwich;
    Fillings in this type of sandwiches are presented between two or more slices of bread that is sometimes toasted.
    The crusts may or may not be removed, depending upon your preference.
  • Bread Roll;
    A bread roll is cut transversely and dressed with filling between the two halves.
    The fillings used are similar to those used in a closed sandwich.
  • Club sandwich;
    Double decker or club sandwich.
    Two types of fillings are presented between three slices of buttered bread cut into fingers.
    The crusts are usually removed.

    The bread slices can be cut into squares, tri­angles, or rounds.
  • Wrap/Rolled Sandwich;
    Wraps are sandwiches in which the filling is wrapped in a flour tortilla or a similar flatbread.
    They may be served whole, cut in half or cut in to finger food sizes.

Sandwich-Making Tips

  1. When cutting bread, keep slices together in pairs so that they will fit together.
  2. Have butter, margarine, or spread at room temperature so that it will spread without tearing the bread.
    Use cream if necessary. Be sure that the spread is very thin.
  3. Bread may also be layered with one or more types of filling as in club sandwich.
  4. Different colours of bread can be combined together and sliced differently to make interesting designs for the sandwich.
  5. Apply spread on bread evenly to prevent sogginess.
  6. Vary your sandwiches by using different bread types and fillings.
