After I wrote my cookbook, 400 Best Sandwiches Recipes, I was often asked in television and radio interviews which sandwich recipe was my favorite? I can’t tell you how difficult it is to choose between 400 different sandwich recipes. This California Sandwich is in my top 5 favorites. I love the simplicity of the goat cheese spread combined with zucchini, squash, tomatoes, avocados and sprouts on this multigrain bread. If you can’t find alfalfa sprouts, I love using kale or broccoli sprouts, which are also widely available in grocery stories. This sandwich is perfect for the summertime for lunch or a light dinner served with a fresh corn salad and fruit. I promise it is as good as it looks!
For Superbowl Sunday, how about a grilled cheese sandwich recipe? Grilled Roast Beef and Stilton is a fabulous, hearty sandwich that will go perfect on your Superbowl recipe and menu list. It’s also a great weeknight dinner or sunday lunch idea. Stilton is a semisoft, crumbly cheese that is similar to blue cheese. It is terrific paired with roast beef and peppery arugula. Use store bought basil pesto if you are short on time to make the fresh Basil Aioli. This is just one of the 150 recipes from latest cookbook 150 Grilled Sandwich Recipes.

It’s so fun to mix and match different types of bread to jazz up the kids’ sandwiches. This recipe for Tuna Checkerboard Sandwich gives regular tuna a twist using lemon juice and white wine vinegar instead of mayonnaise. It is healthier, light and a great new way to get the kids to eat more tuna. This recipe is in my latest cookbook, “400 Best Sandwiches: From Classics & Burgers to Wraps & Condiments” published by Robert Rose, Inc.
My three kids start back to school in a little over a week so I’ve been trying to get back into the groove. I try to be really creative when it comes to school lunch for two out of my three children who insist on taking their own lunch. This year, I have more than enough ideas since the release of my new cookbook, “400 Best Sandwiches: From Classics & Burgers to Wraps & Condiments”. One of our favorite recipes from the “Lunchbox” chapter is this recipe for Lunch Box Sushi. It’s really easy, healthy, fresh and kids love it. Feel free to substitute cooked chicken for the shrimp. In honor of the popular demand for sandwiches and back to school, I am giving away one copy of my new sandwich cookbook.
