Bobby Flay's Sandwich Tips

Bobby Flay's Sandwich Tips

Yesterday we brought you a fun little video of Bobby Flay making sandwiches, and today we've got his tips for crafting the best 'wich! While Flay is known for his superior grill skills, he's also a sponsor for Best Foods mayonnaise and a master of sandwich making. Here's how the Iron Chef recommends building a better sandwich:

  • When a sandwich contains several moist ingredients (mayonnaise, tomatoes, etc), use a thick, crusty bread like ciabatta.
  • When putting together a simple sandwich with fewer ingredients, like ham and cheese, select thinly sliced bread.

  • For sandwiches on the go, separate the elements: Put the bread in one baggy, the condiments in a small Tupperware or squirt bottle, and the veggies in another baggy. Assemble just before eating.
  • Get creative! Instead of using lettuce, opt for other crunchy vegetables. When they come in contact with oil-based condiments, sliced cucumber and fennel won't wilt or turn soggy.
  • Add a kick to any sandwich with strong flavors like smoked Spanish paprika, fresh ground black pepper, chili powder, or fresh lime juice.
  • Make sure your sandwich is full of color. Incorporate fresh vibrant elements such as parsley leaves, finely diced red onions, or green, yellow, and red peppers.
  • Don't forget to have fun with your ingredients! Who says you can’t enjoy the crunch of blue corn chips on your sandwich? Why not include chopped toasted walnuts or pecans? How about dried cranberries, cherries, or raisins? The sky is the limit.
  • Think outside the box. By adding a creamy lemon-chive vinaigrette, you can take the classic egg sandwich from breakfast to dinner.
  • Make your own custom sauces. Jazz up store-made condiments with fresh herbs, citrus juice, horseradish, roasted tomatoes, olives, or chiles.

I love red grapes and toasted walnuts or almonds in my chicken and turkey salad sandwiches. I also usually have at least five different kinds of mustards in the fridge. Certain mustards just compliment a particular sandwich better than others.

Hummus is my favorite on sandwhiches. Any time is a good time for hummus. :)

I love a slather of pesto on a sandwich--when it's chilled, it doesn't make the bread soggy.

"For sandwiches on the go, separate the elements: Put the bread in one baggy, the condiments in a small Tupperware or squirt bottle, and the veggies in another baggy. Assemble just before eating. " Eh, some sandwiches need tight wrapping together and keeping them that way for some time in order to get a quality sandwich - see Alton's Good Eats "Sandwiches" episode.
