If there is one thing everybody hates about sandwiches, it is a soggy sandwich. To prevent your sandwich from getting soggy, place the cut tomatoes between two paper towels for a while before you put them in.


Talking about tomatoes – if you are in hurry, put cherry tomatoes between two horizontally placed cutting boards (or any two large flat objects) and slice through them all with one move.


If you happen to make too many sandwiches, just wrap them in plastic wraps and put them in the freezer. Then, you can take one any time you need and by lunch break, it will be thawed and ready to eat.


If you share the cooler with other people, there is always the risk of your delicious sandwich getting eaten by someone else. To avoid this unpleasant surprise, wrap your sandwich in this special wrap and nobody will ever touch it. Guaranteed.

To prevent bread from squeezing when cutting, you can turn it upside down and cut it on the soft side. Also, always remember to use a knife with a serrated blade.


Put your sandwich condiments like mayonnaise or ketchup in portable condiment containers and use them just before eating so your sandwich doesn't get prematurely soggy.


The mayo doesn't have to be unhealthy and full of chemicals. You can make your own mayo by mixing 2 egg yolks, a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 4 teaspoons of lemon juice, a cup of vegetable oil, salt and pepper.


Try garlic bread and spaghetti sandwich. This crazy-sounding but tasty flavor will liven up your sandwich repertoire.

Sandwiches can also be sweet. You can try adding things like honey, marshmallow fluff, Nutella, fruit jam, peanut butter etc. And if you want to be really creative, just mix all of them at the same time.


If you want your sandwich to be crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside, toast two slices of bread together in one toaster slot.


When making your submarine sandwich, only slice the baguette 3/4 of the way through so the laboriously arranged ingredients don't fall off while you are eating it.


Those who find the sweet bread sandwich as a weird combination can easily swap out the bread for waffles. This way, the blend of sweet flavors provides a unique and delicious experience.


If you don’t like sandwich crust, use a pizza cutter to cut it off before you start making the sandwich.

If you're in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich but only have a toaster at your disposal, you can still have it. Just turn the toaster on its side and put a slice of bread with cheese in. Just make sure the cheese doesn’t overlap the bread as removing burnt cheese from the inside of your toaster is a pain.

Tortillas and burritos are also kind of sandwiches. To keep them from falling apart, warm your tortillas before rolling everything together. Just a few seconds on each side in a pan, or quickly in the microwave and they will hold together nicely..


Onion can elevate the tastiness of your sandwich to another level but for some people, the strong flavor and smell of this vegetable can be too intense. To make the onion less potent without losing its great taste, roast it for about two minutes in a pan before you put it in your sandwich.


We have already talked about the iron-cooked bacon but iron can help you make another delicious food item. Wrap a cheese sandwich in foil and leave the iron on each side for about two minutes. A perfect grilled cheese sandwich student-style is now ready.

If you don’t want to lose a single bit of your sandwich filling, prepare it in the triangle sandwich maker. The edges of the bread will seal perfectly, keeping all the great stuff inside. Just don’t put large and hard ingredients (e.g. olives) in the center of the bread as it is the place where it gets divided.

Also, when making your sandwich, think about the “grippines” of each ingredient and try to arrange them so your slippery ingredients (e.g. lettuce) and grippy ingredients (e.g. cheese) are back to back so that the sandwich doesn't fall apart.


To make sure that your sandwich will be nice and fresh even after several hours, wrap it in wax paper.
