OFFER BOLD, SURPRISING SANDWICH COMBINATIONS
The perennial favorite grilled cheese can be made with a variety of different bread types and stuffed with umami-rich ingredients that complement whatever cheeses you choose—think roasted specialty mushrooms, kimchee, tomato-anchovy jam, garam masala-stewed cauliflower, and caramelized onions.
- Sky’s-the-limit clubs can be piled to impressive heights with shaved meats, maple bacon, roasted vegetables, crunchy lettuces, and heirloom tomatoes. Add in modern favorites such as mashed avocados, harissa mayonnaise, lemony hummus, and puréed artichoke hearts for added appeal.
- Gooey, saucy meatball subs can be made with ground beef/pork or plant-based alternatives. Swap out traditional marinara for equally delicious red mole, herby pesto, garlicky chimichurri, Swedish cream sauce, or Greek tzatziki. And smother all with toppings like roasted Brussels sprouts, puréed eggplant, pickled jalapenos, or tomato confit.
- Who says you need bread? Sushi sandwiches layer traditional seafood and vegetables between rice and seaweed. Contrast with the tender texture of rice and fish with the crunch of cucumbers, asparagus, red cabbage, and carrots. Change the color of rice with the natural pigments of beets, turmeric, or butterfly pea flowers.
