The Best Sandwich-Making Tips, According to the Internet - Food News

The Best Sandwich-Making Tips, According to the Internet - Food News
From The Kitchn - September 18, 2017

There are really very few things that are better than a well-made sandwich. It might not have taken a genius to come up with the idea of putting their meal between two pieces of bread, but whoever it was, I thank you. We all thank you. There's something so incredibly satisfying about biting into that glorious stack of layers and getting an even amount of bread, spread, cheese, lettuce, tomato, seasoning, and meat.

The only problem with sandwiches is that they are frequently poorly made. But we ca not blame that sad disgrace on the sandwichno, the blame rests solidly on the shoulders of the unfortunate soul who constructed it. It must have been for this very reason that a Reddit user asked one of the most important questions that has perhaps ever graced the unwieldy social news site: "What's the best advice you have ever received for making a sandwich better?"

Then answers starting pouring in from some very enlightened and thoughtful sandwich-lovers. Here are some of the highlights.

1. Use avocado as a spread.

"When making a sandwich with avocado, do not cut the fruit into slices and place it on the sandwich. Mash up the green stuff and treat it like a spread," explains Hey_Neat. This rings true if you have ever tried to eat avocado toast but kept getting foiled by the beautiful little slices of avocado as they fell off the bread or unceremoniously slipped, partially gummed, out of your mouth.

2. Always season your tomatoes.

Dotmatrix insists, "Pepper the tomatoes." And salt them. This way you will be able to see exactly how much salt you have added, and your pepper distribution will be blissfully even. Not to mention the tomato juices will hold onto the seasoning (and any other spices you add) like a charm.

3. Use fat to prevent a soggy sandwich.

4. Match the bread to your filling.
