Sandwich Night!

By The Paula Deen Test Kitchen

What do you put between two slices of bread? It’s question most of us face on a daily basis. Not the same old, same old anymore! Here are five suggestions anyone can use to add some pizzazz to their sandwich routine.

imageGrill It
Grilling your sandwiches is a great way to make an ordinary sandwich extraordinary. Don’t want to worry about heating up the outside grill? Use your indoor grill, griddle or sandwich press to make a Panini.

imageBreakfast Sandwiches Rule!
If you find yourself not having enough time to enjoy a filling breakfast in the mornings, try throwing together a quick breakfast sandwich and taking it on the go. Or treat yourself on the weekend and in the evenings to more extravagant breakfast sandwich like this Sausage, Pancake and Egg Sandwich.

imageUse Leftovers
Reinvent last night’s dinner into today’s out-of-this world lunch. Meatloaf, roast, grilled chicken, or prime ribs all make great proteins to add to your sandwiches. Standard lunch meat sandwiches are fine, but don’t be afraid to kick your sandwiches up a notch with one of these more specialty meats.

imageMake It Messy
Think outside of your bread! Have fun with your sandwiches, like with this dressed up version of sloppy joes. Hearty, and totally filling, these sandwiches are nearly as much fun to eat, as they are to make. Just be sure to have plenty of towels handy!

imageA Little Goes a Long Way
Don’t ask us why, but eating things in miniature is just more fun! Take your favorite sandwich fillings and stick them in little sliders- it’s makes them easier to share. Sliders perfect social appetizers too, so take them to parties or whip some up when you’re entertaining guests.

Cathy must be a blooming idiot - bless her heart - and if I weren't such a sweet Southern girl, I'd say what I really think she is. Does she think just because Paula, our mommas & grandmommas give us all these sinfully delicious recipes that we are to eat them 3 x a day, every day?? My mom is diabetic with heart disease, both her parents had heart disease, every one (except me) in my daddy's family has high cholesterol. But also, every woman on both sides of my family, me too, is known for their good Southern home cooking. If I fixed and ate everything I love to eat, then ate it every day, I would probably weigh 400lbs! Yeah, she needs to get a grip and take responsibility for herself. Like so many others these days who want to blame someone else for their problems when they are most likely a result of their own stupidity!! Y'all keep on cooking girls!!

to all the haters of paula deen, GET A GRIP AND STOP BLAMING OTHER PEOPLE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS THAT ONLY YOU CREATE. As of today, in America you still having a choice as to what YOU put in YOUR pie hole and YOUR families' pie holes. So, it's very simple, if you DON'T agree with her cooking style, turn off the tube and don't cook her receipts. AND, Mrs. Paula Deen's health problems is nobodies business. If she ain't for you then I recommend you watch Anthony Bourdain. He is a hater as well and has a nice wholesome show:).

You are such a hypocrite! You have diabetes (most likely the result of your ridiculously high fat and calorie food) for 3 years. Instead of respecting your fans, you chose to deceive us. You should have admitted that your style of cooking is detrimental to good health and that you are living proof of that. Then you should have modified your program to inspire us with southern cooking that would allow you to control your diabetes without medication and still have great cuisine. You have disappointed and discouraged many of your fans with your deception that you don't believe food and be good and healthy to allow us not to have health problems. There are many Americans when we find out we have diabetes, we chang the way eat and we exercise thereby discovering not only we don't need meds, but also we can ear healthy, delicious food.
