Simple Sub Sandwiches to Feed You Through A Busy Week

August 12, 2014

Sandwiches are often cast aside as lunchtime fare without any flair.  When crafting the perfect sub sandwich, think of it as you would any other dish with layers of different flavors and textures.  Sure, a bologna and cheese has it's place but shouldn't be an everyday staple.  These sub sandwiches are as easy to prepare as they are delicious.  The best part is that you can take leftovers to work the next day for lunch.  Your co-workers will be jealous of your fabulous homemade meal.

Shrimp is one of the fastest ingredients to cook.  Once it hits the pan, it's only needs about a minute or two before it's ready to eat.  For this sandwich, the shrimp are seasoned with lime, chipotle and garlic before it's tucked into the loaf.  It's served with a homemade peach salsa and avocado mayonnaise.

Roasted Portobello Mushroom and Peach Sandwich
Recipe from The Floating Kitchen

Roasted portobello mushroom and peach sandwich is a hearty vegetarian sandwich.  The earthy flavor of the mushroom compliment the sweet summer peach.  I like to spread my bread with basil pesto or olive tapenade for an extra kick of flavor.
