Perhaps it's because we're always in a hurry on weekday mornings and need a portable meal, or maybe it’s simply that these handheld meals are so darn delicious, but we are currently enjoying a breakfast-sandwich renaissance.
These fancy sandwiches can seem like a lot of work, but once you've made the sauce, putting together two big sandwiches and cutting them into individual rectangles means it's no trouble at all to serve enough for a crowd.
These sophisticated sandwiches are familiar enough for children. The chicken can be marinated tonight and broiled for dinner tomorrow. Pair it with a crunchy salad for a pleasant contrast between hot and cold.
Use leftovers to create a substantial sandwich. Together with surplus sliced beef, some Swiss cheese, and a smear of Russian dressing on rye, it can be griddled into melting deliciousness to create this Reuben sandwich.
