How many times a week do you have sandwiches for supper?

When it is just my husband and I for supper and I have had a very busy day, I put out the sliced ham and cheese and we have sandwiches. Usually once a week we have hotdogs, so I guess that can be classified as a sandwich. I would like to hear your unique ways of making a delicious sandwich for supper. I did fix Italian roast beef subs one dinner after Sunday church service. I am anxious to hear what all of you do.

We don't eat too many sandwiches. I don't like them too much, but in the summer, I do eat them more often. I prefer the wraps, or pita breads. The wraps are even better for you that reg. bread. We also eat those pot pies. I think they are Banquet, and are about 50 cents each. They go in the microwave and are really pretty good. Our favorite fast food is pasta. I add dressing, chopped veggies, cheese to the cooked noodles depending on my mood. It only takes about 10 minutes and is easy to do. Stews are easy if done in the crock pot. the would only require a little prep and it cooks while you are gone doing whatever you need to get done.

I had heard others that ate the tortillas instead of bread. Do you use your lunchmeat and cheese in the pita bread or tortilla? That is an interesting twist to our country-style sandwiches. I will have to eat that pasta more often too. I am the only one that likes pot pies but the crockpot stews would be great. thanks for all the info.

I use the shells but make them the same way I would a reg. Sandwich, just no bread.

In regards to having sandwiches for supper we rarely do have sandwiches unless we have had an extremely busy day but when we do we shall cut some hat, tomato, onions, beetroot, lettuce and have that on our sandwich. So as long as we have some nutitious then we feel fine.

It seems that no one cares to have sandwiches until they have had a very busy day. We love the tomatoe and lettuce on our sandwiches, but beetroot? I don't know what that is. Might try it sometime if I knew. LOL

Hi, in regards to beetroot it is a variety of beet plants cultivated for its edible roo. The bulbous, dar red taproot of the plant, eaten in salads or picked it tastes very nice and if you have a hamburger it makes it tastes lovely.

We have sandwiches, sausages, sausage rolls and other nibbles when we have friends round to play bridge. It is easy for the girls to prepare and easy to eat round the bridge table with a table cloth thrown over. However, it is not my favourite meal and I could well do without it and sit down to a proper meal.

All of those sound really good. I dont' know that I have ever eaten a sausage roll but it sounds good any way. LOL My two sons don't like sandwiches at all and when they come over I have to cook a proper meal.

I understand that the whole exercise is to make less work for the lady of the house and for that I am in full agreement and happily eat whatever is put in front of me. I even (shock! horror!), on rare occasions, manage to cook something myself without poisoning the family and friends!! I'm sure you just call sausage rolls a different name. They are small cocktail sasuages wrapped in puff pastry and served hot. Standard nibbles fare at drinks parties.

Well, if you count cheeseburgers and hot dogs, I would say that we eat sandwiches about 3 times per week. Ask the hubby and he will say every day. HAHA! He tteases me a lot about us eating easy quick meals like that and says that he has sandwiches for lunch and should not have them for dinner. Sometimes I will ask what he wants and he will say Cheeseburgers. Now, that is a double standard- complain and then ask for. Got to love him! I don't really have any fancy sandwiches,but we do occasionally get sweet Italian bread and put lunchmeat,cheese,etc on it and makes subs and we love them!!

That is funny, carolscash, about your husband. My husband loves sandwiches, whether it is cheeseburger, hotdogs, or ham/cheese sandwich or bologna/cheese, but I know he would soon get tired of them if I put them on the table every night. I am trying to find other easy ways to make sandwiches but still be good. The Italian beef in the crockpot was an easy one for a sub and your idea of the sweet Italian bread and lunchmeat and cheese for subs is a good idea too. Thanks for the idea.
