There are loads of reasons to get your sandwich game on this month. If you’re getting involved with Sourdough September and need a few ways to use up that leftover loaf, we’ve got plenty of ideas to inspire. Or, do you often find that bread goes stale before you’ve had the chance to use it? Turn a sandwich into a toastie for a tasty way to inject new life into a loaf.
Need more convincing? I’ve pulled together a list of my favourite Co-op sandwich recipes that are sure to spark your appetite, with ideas to suit breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and dessert!
Chocolate for breakfast?! This treat-worthy toastie is wonderful on special occasions – you could serve it as a dessert, too.
Prefer something savoury in the morning? This super-simple toasted sandwich only requires four ingredients, and is a glorious way of using Scottish haggis.
Are you a fan of a classic club sandwich? Then you’ve got to give this veggie version a go. Loaded with beetroot, peppers, spinach, Greek yogurt and houmous, it makes a quick and healthy option you can whip up in your lunch hour at home.
There’s something seriously British about filling a sandwich with sliced roast beef, extra mature cheddar and a sweet apple slaw. And it really works! Make double the amount of slaw (it’s that good) and serve with burgers, hot dogs, barbecued meats or veggies – or just about anything else you can think of.
Do you struggle to think of vegetarian meal ideas? Go meat-free for at least one meal a day and add this nutritious open sandwich to your recipe repertoire. It’s a wonderful way to use sourdough bread and packs in fibre-rich cannellini beans, too. Garnish with lots of fresh herbs and lemon for an easy lunchtime win.
This gorgeously green number is just the ticket when you’re in need of some goodness. It’s filled with minty mushy peas, goat’s cheese slices and crunchy cucumber – a vegetarian solution to your midday meal.
Time for tea
Yes – I do consider it necessary to include a sandwich option for afternoon tea! These mini smoked salmon teacake sandwiches make scrummy bite-size morsels. They’re also great if you prefer to snack on something savoury.
There’s no denying that this toastie is a bit of a treat. And this one’s proof that the best things in life are the simplest. I consider it the superior way to enjoy Co-op macaroni cheese – between two pieces of sourdough bread!
Open sandwiches always look impressive, but they’re incredibly simple to make. This one is topped with sliced steak, salad and Co-op salsa for a fresh and zingy meal idea. Serve with jalapeños too, if you like a bit of a kick.
Just when you thought there were no more meals left in the day… you can absolutely enjoy a sarnie for dessert, too! Grab a crusty white cob and give these white chocolate French toasties a go. If you’re not a fan of blackcurrant jam, swap it for your preferred choice instead.
This dessert is strictly adults only… plus, it’s really easy. Cherries are simmered with amaretto, then used to fill brioche buns, along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If cherries aren’t in season, swap for plums or your choice of stone fruit.
