Surprising Sandwiches

Updated on January 12, 2013

Some of my favorite sandwiches are unusual ones. Some simple and others more involved. You might want to try them too.

Avocado Bacon Raisin Sandwich

For this sandwich I prefer a whole grain bread with wheat buds or other rough bits in it for texture.

Spread mayonnaise on each slice of bread.

Cut an avocado in half and spread the contents on one slice.

Plump raisins (put them in a little water in a microwave for about 30 seconds) and press them into the avocado base.

Top the avocado with crisp bacon strips and add the second slice of bread.

Mato Mayo Sandwich

This is very simple. I prefer a white, light bread for this. Spread mayonnaise on both slices of bread and add sliced fresh tomatoes. That's it!

Tuna Tarter Sandwich

Mix mayonaise with a small amount of mustard and sweet pickle relish to create a homemade tarter sauce.

Mix tuna into this sauce to make a spread.

Spread on a whole grain style of bread.

Add thin strips of cabbage.

Peanut Butter, Mayonnaise & Lettuce Sandwich

This was a big favorite of mine when I was a child.

This sandwich is best with a white type of bread.

Spread mayonnaise on one slice and peanut butter on the other.

Add a slice of lettuce in between.

Sweet Eggs & Clams Sandwich

Saute in a pan, sweet onion, mushrooms and basil.

Whip an egg and add chopped clams.

Add this mixture to the pan, combining all the ingrediants.

Cook until parts of the egg are golden.

Remove and place on a whole grain style of bread that has been spread with mayonnaise.

Add a leaf of lettuce.

Salmon Sandwich

Mix a can of pink salmon with mayonnaise and chopped black olives to create a spread.

Spread the mixture on a whole grain style of bread.

Add slices of sweet onion.

Best Beef Pita

Fill half of a pita bread with the following:

Thin slices of well done beef (hot is best)

A sliver of dill pickle

Chopped tomato

A sprig of mint

Yogurt sauce (plain yogurt thinned with a small amount of milk until it is salad dressing consistency)

Shrimp Pita

Fill one half of a pita bread with fresh salad shrimp.

Add alfalfa sprouts.

Dress with thousand island dressing.
