I noticed from Twitter hashtags that this week is National Sandwich Week & it got me first of all feeling hungry, and then interested in what the most popular type of sandwich is. After a quick bit of research I discovered the nations favourite (for this year anyway) is the good old bacon butty. Sandwiches tend to be a staple packed lunch for a lot of us, but do you stick to the same type every day or prefer to mix it up with different fillings? I actually had a sausage sandwich for lunch today, as we had leftovers from a barbecue last night.
I also had a look at all the tasty ingredients we stock here at BasketsGalore for sandwich inspiration, and found quite a few! From traditional ham and cheese sandwiches, to posh air-dried meat brioche (choice of beef, lamb or pork), to salami baguettes, to shredded duck breast panini's to smoked salmon bagels. I even spotted jam and so thought of a jam sandwich too, or if you're Paddington Bear a marmalade sandwich!
I actually posted recently about how some of our gifts make excellent, ready stocked picnic baskets and so perhaps we could put all these ingredients together to make a sandwich basket!
What is your favourite sandwich?
