    Best packed lunch sandwich combo?

    Ok, I am bored with my usual staple of tuna sandwiches for my packed lunch. Tried salmon yesterday and I wasn't too keen on them, found them a bit tasteless.

    Anyone got any good combos they would like to share?

    Got to be quick and easy to make since I am generally assembling them at 5 in the morning, prior to a coffee and quick catch up on TZ, before setting off for work.

    I am a brown bread fan, if that makes a difference, but happy to try other types for a change!

    May be a bit dull but on brown bread it has to be turkey and mayo with a sprinkling of salt.
    Failing that, crisps or pot noodle sandwiches are always an option!
    For the record, I've not eaten a pot noodle sandwich since I was about fifteen.

    Thinly sliced chicken laid in a corn flatbread on a bed of cream cheese topped with cranberry sauce. Yum!

    Brie, red grape and cranberry in a tiger bread baguette with some salad. Perfection.

    Usually made at night to save time. Make the entire baguette and then cut into 3 or 4.

    Cheese and marmite or boiled egg and tomato.
    Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

    Haslet and cucumber
    Brie and bacon
    Smoked salmon and cream cheese in a bagel
    Ham and salt n vinegar crisps (thin white bread is best here)
    Pastrami and mustard.
    Turkey and mayonnaise
    Pâté and cucumber.

    Try and avoid tomato as it makes the bread all soggy although a BLT is a very fine thing if made fresh.
    I find cucumber to be a great addition to a sandwich it adds some healthy crunch but if you remove the middle you don’t risk soggy sandwiches it also tastes bette - to me - than lettuce. Although a bit of romaine is nice too.

    I like to rev up a boring tuna sarnie by adding grated mature cheddar and red onion.

    Laughing cow cheese spread with crisps of your choice.

    Tuna mayo (lots of mayo) with chopped onion / spring onion and black pepper. Grated cheese is good with this.

    Egg mayo and lettuce.

    Cheese and beetroot. You get a few flavours of pickled beetroot now.

    Anything left over from Sunday dinner.

    Good old corned beef and pickle

    Was my guilty pleasure when taking packed lunches!! Always thought I would be the only one. You can use the crisps to cut off slices of the cheese. 😂

    Some great choices in here so far, I should be good for a few weeks!

    I just thought back to the old marmite and carrot days, will have to give those another try as well.

    A brown, seeded bread - BLT.

    Use a fleshy tomato rather than one with lots of seeds/water
    Bacon should be good streaky.
    Pat the lettuce dry.
    put spread on both upper and lower bread slices
    bacon first, tomato next, lettuce on top - insulates the bread from the tomato (the spread helps too)

    Presto-Hey! perfect!

    Crispy Bacon Brie & Cranberry preferably in a baguette/panini and freshly heated
    Peanut Butter & Cheese - surprisingly nice - you get lots of cheeses described as "nutty flavour/aroma etc" so why not put nuts with some good cheddar cheese? Needs some marg or particularly runny PB otherwise it's a bit dry.
    PB & Salsa works well too, but only made fresh otherwise the salsa makes the bread soggy.

    I recently made a pot of spicy mexican rice to go into homemade burritos. Mexican rice, chicken filling, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado and sour cream. Epic lunches!

  24. #24
    Lemon curd- v v old school but a killer filling

    Corned beef and red onion

    Boiled egg and mayo - just do it the night before and keep in the fridge in a container

    Coronation chicken - you can buy ready done as a sandwich filler

    Pork pie and pickle ... makes a great sarnie - you have to slice the pie unless you have an exceptionally large mouth ... ;)

    Not sure it will work on brown but my favourite sandwich is Thick white bread with a smear of butter. Lashings of dairylea, cheap wafer thin ham and as many cheesy doritos as you can fit in.

    It's not classy or particularly healthy but i like it.

    Proper ham (not wafer stuff) and mature cheddar with mustard mayo. Actually I think I might have one now.

    My current fav is cheese, corned beef and homemade chilli jam.
    For me, a sandwich has to have some form of cheese in it

    Washed down with a glass of alien’s blood?

    After Christmas - Turkey, English mustard, sliced stuffing on fresh bread.

    Possibly better than the Christmas dinner that it was left over from.

    Good point, the creative reuse of the leftovers of the Christmas lunch can be soo much better. Fried slice of Christmas pud is a real treat.

    Anchovies draped over Russian salad on a crisp bread is bloody good.

    I think you've got to go a long way to beat a good old cheese and pickle sarnie.
    Nice strong cheddar, branstons pickle and crusty loaf......luvly

    I'm on a diet with no bread in it at the moment. I won't sleep tonight now I've read that!

    Bread is very difficult to cut out, I'm also dieting and I think it was the thing I craved the most even over crisps and sweets....but sorry😀

    Yes bread is the thing I really miss the most. Only saving grace is I can have a cooked breakfast with bacon, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms, so life isn't all bad!!

    I'm ashamed to say I indulged in a crisp sandwich upon my return from the pub last week.
    My old mainstay was Cheese and Onion Pringles. Has to be liberally buttered white bread. However, I had none in so used Frazzles. Not going to lie, amazing.

    As for the packed lunch. If brown bread, I'd say chicken. Bit of salt, bit of lettuce.

    Some interesting combos in here to say the least. Some made my mouth water, others made me heave.
