Gourmet Sandwich Filling Ideas

I'm a freelance writer in Sydney, enjoying everything it has to offer!
Published July 26th 2011
The gourmet sandwiches being offered at some of the cafes across the city are sure to leave you drooling and certainly more tempted to pop out for lunch than bring it in a paper bag like a good kid. I sure do think about what I'm trying next at my favourite spot.

However, the time comes when I should really attempt to make them myself to save some coin and it's quite fun experimenting with different fillings. The following are a list of some classics that just can't be beaten and also some newbies that I discovered and have added to my lunchbox. Suffice to say, my colleagues have begun to get sandwich envy!

Hopefully they inspire you to take to the cutting board of a morning and get the cling wrap out. If not, there's always an easy dinner!

1. Nothing beats "the Reuben": Corned beef, sauerkraut, cornichons, Dijon mustard, gruyere cheese on toasted rye.

2. Boccocini, tomato, pesto, rocket toasted on white sourdough.

3. Leg ham (aaah Christmas ham if the timing is right, dribble dribble) beetroot, pickles, rocket, avocado, mustard on white roll.

4. Turkey, cranberry sauce, Camembert cheese, alfalfa sprouts, avocado on white bread.

5. Roasted pumpkin, eggplant, capsicum, basil pesto, ricotta, and sundried tomatoes too if you like on multigrain bread or in a wrap.

6. Roast beef, shaved parmesan, grilled pear, avocado, Dijon mustard and rocket on grainy sourdough.

7. The all time favourite BLAT: crispy bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato. Add mayo too if you like or even substitute fresh tomato with the sun-dried variety.

8. Prosciutto, pear, taleggio and rocket on white baguette.

9. Salami, ricotta, artichoke, sun-dried tomato, provolone and rocket on grainy bread.

#10. Smoked ocean trout, cream cheese, capers, tomato and baby spinach on rye bread.

What an awesome range of flavours there!
many of them can be made up in advance and froxen too, so they are ready when you need them
