How to Make Homemade Sandwiches
The days of a simple ham and cheese sandwich or PB & J are over. Granted, there is nothing wrong at all with these types of yummy creations, sometimes we need to nosh on something with just a bit more pizazz.
The great thing about sandwiches is that there are no rules. You can add leftover meat, like corned beef, to create a Beef Breakfast Sandwich. Start a crockpot in the morning and add in pork and a few other ingredients and after work you will have juicy and tender Pork Pulled Sandwiches! If you have leftover Turkey from the holidays, then a simple BLT with Turkey will work nicely.

Sandwiches for Dinner?
Sandwiches are an easy and portable meal option. You can make them with almost any ingredients you have at home, so they're perfect for lunch. Making sandwiches is one of the best ways to use up leftover ingredients or make something new from fresh ingredients. That's why it's also a great option for dinner! You can either slow-cook the protein all day in your crockpot or you can use up leftovers that are in the fridge.
Air Fryer Sandwiches
If you have an air fryer, the sandwich combinations you can make are endless. One of my family's favorite things to do is use up leftover bread, add in a couple of slices of cheese, either lunch meat or bacon, and air fryer the sandwich until it's golden brown. Simple, quick, and delicious!
