Sandwich Day

Today is Sandwich Day. You can read more about it here, but basically it’s a day to appreciate sandwiches by biting into your favorite sandwich.

In honor of Sandwich Day, here are two of my favorite sandwich recipes:

Chicken Salad Sandwich:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley for cooking)

1½ cups seedless green grapes

½ cup seedless red grapes

1 medium apple, chopped (any kind works, my favorite is Granny Smith)

¼ cup honey mustard

2/3 cup Miracle Whip

Place chicken breasts in slow cooker with spices and cover with water. Cover and cook on Low for 3 – 5 hours. When chicken is fully cooked remove from water and shred with a fork. Allow chicken to cool to room temperature. Combine chicken with remaining ingredients, mixing well.

These are great on onion rolls or croissants.

Fried Green Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

Fried Green Tomatoes (click here for the recipe)
Loaf of French bread, sliced into pieces about ½ inch thick)
Sliced Provolone Cheese

Place one slice of Provolone Cheese on a piece of bread, top with tomato slice, top with a second slice of Provolone Cheese, top with second piece of bread. Butter top and bottom of sandwich; Heat a large skillet over Medium-High heat and fry sandwiches until golden brown on both sides.

So what about you? What are your favorite sandwiches? Will you be enjoying a sandwich today?


  1. I take a bbq'd chicken breast left-over, remove the skin, chop small pieces and mix with salt, pepper, mayo, chopped tomato, chopped celery and a handful of raisins. I thought the raisins might be weird, but they add a nice sweetness, seeing you add grapes makes me feel better.

  2. Both of those look delicious :) Sandwiches are always so fun to make, especially with all the different combinations one can put on them. Probably won't have a sandwich today (no bread in the house) but might make a breadless one, we'll see :)


  3. No Miracle Whip for me thanks. I much prefer Hellman's. Even though I lived on this side of the puddle for 40 years, I still think of a sandwich as being two pieces of bread, buttered and then filled. No buns.

  4. There seems to be a lot of food days. We had chocolate day. There was ice cream day (in the summer). So many it's hard to keep track. Who comes up with these things? (I'm just bitter because it's diet day for me, which means I'm not eating much of anything.)
