Happy Sandwich day URBAN eaters!
Lets embrace all sandwiches of all shapes and sizes!
Ahh the mighty sandwich! First created in the 18th Century by John Montagu, who felt slightly peckish while playing cards, and so asked his servant to place some meat between two slices of bread so he wouldnt have to interrupt his game. Fast forward to the 21st Century and the sandwich is still here filling up those who are hungry at lunch (or those who want a midnight snack).
Today we celebrate the humble sandwich as its National Sandwich Day, and what better way to mark it than providing you with some sandwich life hacks chosen by yours truly, that I think will make your sandwich that much better.
- Say No to soggy sandwiches!
Put condiments in between your meats, as it will stop them soaking into the bread, and dry your tomatoes before placing them into your sandwich by putting them on a paper towel so it absorbs any excess water. You can thank me later.
- No Mayo? Replace it with Avocado
- Diagonally cut sandwiches are just better
Personally, I think they just look more presentable wait I dont need to justify myself because this does it all for me.
- Bored of triangles? Use Cookie Cutters
- Square bread, round meats and/or cheese?!
Youve just realised youve been adding cheese to your sandwiches all wrong! But its fine, Ive got you all covered (pardon the pun). Do this every time and youll get a good coverage of cheese or ham for every bite! None of this Oh I never got any ham (or cheese) in that bite… which, if youre a lover of ham like me, is very upsetting.
- Perfect BLT
We make pretty good BLTs at URBAN eat but if youre trying to make a BLT at home, this is definitely the right way to go about it. Weave bacon together across the bread and then with every single bite youve got some bacon, lettuce and tomato.
- Arrange your sandwich like a pro
I didnt realise that sandwich making was so complicated. But turns out theres an art to it youve got components which are more grippy and some which are more slippery. Lettuce, tomato, and onions (basically salad) tend to fall under the slippery category whereas your grippier items would be things such as bread, ham, or cheese. Arrange your sandwich so it goes in an order of slippery, grippy, slippery etc and this should prevent the sandwich from falling apart!
And wait theres more! In honour of sandwich day in all its splendour (and because we are such nice people) we have decided to give away this awesome prize to the best sandwich selfie entrant of the day!
