40 best sandwich fillings

Did you know that it is Nation Sandwich Week this week (20-26 May)?

I love a good sandwich. My darling hubby makes me one every day for my lunch (can we say well trained!?) However, I am such a creature of habit, that the majority of the time I have a peanut butter. Skippy. Extra Crunchy. I love it. But it’s not my favourite sandwich.

What is?

Left over roast chicken, mayonnaise, and fresh ground black pepper, on soft white bread.

It is amazing.

You also can’t beat a good bacon and avocado sandwich, or chicken and avocado. Oooh, it’s making me hungry just thinking about them!!

But, with a toddler that hates me cooking, as she always wants cuddles (only when I’m cooking though), and unreliable naps, it’s not as easy to make these. So, peanut butter sandwiches it is.

It got me thinking though as to what else I could have on my sandwiches, so to find some inspiration I asked my lovely blogger friends what their favourite sandwiches are.

Peanut butter & cucumber – it’s THE BEST! Confessions of a Crummy Mummy (I then suggested if she likes this, she tries salad cream on one of the slices of bread, peanut butter on the other, and slices of cucumber in the middle. Depending on which way up the sandwich is, it tastes different. Sounds really weird, but strangely nice though! You can thank Mama Geek for that suggestion!
