Sometimes there’s nothing better than the ultimate sandwich, whether you’re at the beach, the pool, watching your favorite sports team, or any time of day. In honor of National Sandwich Month this August, we’re breaking down how to create the perfect sandwich masterpiece. And in the meantime, when you’re searching for MA catering, Main Course Market is always here to get the job done!
Step One: Choose Your Meat
At the core of any meat-centric sandwich is, of course, the star ingredient: the meat itself. Whether it’s succulent roasted turkey, smoky ham, roast beef, or chicken, the choice of meat sets the foundation for your creation. Opt for high-quality, well-seasoned cuts to ensure the utmost satisfaction with every bite. (Hint: you can find what you need right at Main Course Market).
Step Two: The Right Foundation
The bread you choose can either elevate or undermine your choice of meat. Try opting for a bread that complements the meat’s flavor and texture. A hearty ciabatta or a crusty baguette can tolerate substantial fillings, while a soft brioche bun can provide an excellent contrast to more robust meats.
Step Three: Spreads and Sauces
Spread a layer of flavor with condiments that bridge the gap between your meat and bread selections. Classic mayo and tangy mustard are versatile options, but don’t shy away from exploring other exciting options like chipotle aioli, pesto, or even a savory fruit chutney. These spreads not only elevate the taste but contribute to the moisture in the sandwich!
Step Four: Cheese and Meat
Cheese is meat’s best friend, enriching the flavor profile and adding an irresistible texture. Pairing cheese with your meat or deli slice can create a harmonious balance. For instance, cheddar with ham, Swiss with roast beef, or mozzarella with chicken are great options to start!
Step Five: Layering
Layering is an art that involves placing ingredients strategically for maximum enjoyment. Begin with your spread and then proceed with your choice of meat. Add veggies for a refreshing crunch and/or any other accompaniments like caramelized onions, pickles, or roasted peppers!
Step Six: Seasoning and Assembly
Before sealing the deal, a final dash of seasoning can make all the difference. A pinch of salt, a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper, or a touch of your favorite herbs can enhance each bite. Once seasoned, gently close the sandwich, slice it if desired, and prepare for the masterpiece to unfold with every bite!
