How To Eat At Home on the Go - Week 9 - Toasted Sandwiches

Welcome to Week 8 of How to Eat At Home on the Go, a series where I offer my tips, tricks and recipes to eat at home, even when your family is on the go for sports, church, school, work or anything else that may come up. You can check out the rest of the series here - Week 1, Week 2 , Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, and Week 6,  Week 7 and Week 8.

We just added Toasted Sandwiches to our menu rotations a few months ago.  It was kind of a fluke actually.  We had just returned from a weekend away and were too tired to go to the grocery store or even to pick up takeout.  I rooted through the refrigerator and found ham, salami, cheese and hot dog buns.  Not really in the mood for just a sandwich, I decided to throw the ingredients under the broiler for a couple of minutes and voila, our own toasted sandwiches, much better and much cheaper than Subway.   Since then, toasted sandwiches have appeared on our menu quiet often, especially on busy sports nights.  I can have these sandwiches with chips, veggies or fruit on the table in 15 minutes.

Turn the oven to Broil.  Place bread slices on baking sheet and place under broiler until just lightly toasted.  Top bread with sandwich meat of your choice.  Return under broiler until meat is heated through.  Top meats with cheese of our choosing.  Return to broiler again and heat until cheese is bubbly.  Top sandwiches with your favorite condiments.  I always top mine with mayo, shredded lettuce, sliced cucumbers and banana pepper rings.  Delish!
