Simple Sandwiches

by Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc.

Simple Sandwiches Header

The holiday season is over. Whether that’s a disappointment or a relief, for many people it means moving from busy to busy (just another kind). There may be less travelling or gift-giving to consider, but we’re settling back into our usual routine. School is back in session, the winter break and vacations are over, and we’re back to planning the day-to-day.

After all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can be tempting to want to stay home and rejuvenate rather than go out on the usual errand runs. Preparing to send kids back to school or planning meals for the week ahead can seem daunting.

So if you’re crunched for time or haven’t made your weekly trip to the grocery store yet, consider these Simple Sandwiches, most of which only require a few pantry staples you likely already have on hand.

 

Fluffernutter

Fluffernutter

This simple sandwich is a beloved favorite for kids and parents alike! And with only 3 ingredients (pantry staples, at that) what’s not to love?

Make it:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Marshmallow Fluff
  • Your choice of Martin’s Bread (we suggest our classic Potato Bread)

Mix it up:

  • Experiment with different types of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth), alternative nut (or seed) butters such as almond butter or sunflower butter, or swap the peanut butter for chocolate-hazelnut spread for a tasty twist on s’mores.

Club Sandwich

Quartered Club Sandwich on Martin's Butter Bread

Somehow club sandwiches seem fancier than traditional deli sandwiches, perhaps because of the stacked nature of the toppings or the custom of serving them in quarters. So, the next time you’re looking to step up your sandwich game, keep them in mind! (Learn more about the history of the club sandwich, and find more recipes at: https://potatorolls.com/blog/double-decker-club-sandwich-recipes.)

  • Italian deli meats such as pepperoni, capicola, soppresata, mortadella, or salami
  • Provolone cheese
