Two Sandwich Recipes for National Sandwich Day

The post is part of my partnership is Oroweat.

November 3rd is National Sandwich Day!

aint no sandwich like a sandwich party

I don’t know about you, but I eat sandwiches all the time (I’m probably eating one as you read this). So, I thought I should celebrate this very important day in our nation’s history with TWO sandwiches.

Double-fisting sammies. Heck yeah.

The first sandwich recipe was inspired by the delicious mozzarella appetizer I had before the Marine Corps Marathon. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make an amazing dish.

The simplicity of good cheese, a fresh tomato and quality balsamic is enough.

Make sure you get fancy mozzarella and balsamic or Ina will frown upon your sandwich.

BMT – Basil, Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwich Recipe


  • Fresh mozzarella cheese (a lot because you’ll eat some of it while making this)
  • Few basil leaves
  • Tomato
  • balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pieces of Oroweat bread
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Some way to grill it up

Directions: Pile up the BMT ingredients (basil, mozz, tomato) on the bread. Season with S&P and balsamic. Grill. Eat. (I used my Foreman grill, but the usual way works.)

Question: What’s your FAVORITE SANDWICH?

I like tuna or fancy chicken salad with tons of grapes and cranberries and cashews.

    Ohmygoodness. I want those both. I’ve had basically that first sandwich at a local sandwich shop when I was in college and it’s so good. That cannoli dessert one may be on my must have list this weekend though.

    I love a good old fashion Wegmans sub. Nomnomnom.

    That mozzarella, tomato, basil sandwich is the best idea…I usually have those ingredients, why do I never made this combo?! That dessert sandwich looks good too, i think my boyfriend would die of amazement if I made him that one. Thanks!!

    These both look delicious. I have a panini press and never use it; a caprese sounds like a good way to break that! My fave sandwich is anything with turkey+avocado… yum.

    i love tuna sandwiches mixed with greek yogurt and lots of tomatoes… or if i’m in a breakfast mood, i love egg sandwiches with spinach, hummus, and avocado :)

  5. says

    I love sandwhiches!! We are gluten free so we use UDI’S bread. Then my favorite filling for a sandwhich is tuna, pickles, mustard, a little garlic salt, all mixed together. Then some Sharp cheddar cheese and then grill it!! Yummy!!

  6. says

    Vegan multigrain bread, tofu, shredded carrots, sliced radishes, lettuce, veganase, plain hummus, and probably some pepper. It’s been so long, now I’m totally craving one!

    Turkey and avocado…or turkey and cranberry-orange relish. Or an egg sandwich with green chile…mm sandwiches…

    I love Caprese salads so I imagine your BMT will be superb. Can’t wait to try it. As for the second one – cream cheese and chocolate chips? Yummers.

    My current favorite: Rosemary & Olive Oil flatbread with lettuce, turkey, Swiss cheese & cherry jalapeño salsa. Fold in half, grill (I use my foreman too), yummm!!!
    I can’t wait to whip up a delicious sandwich with Thanksgiving leftovers!
