Deb's Easy Sandwich Fillings

This list can be perpetual...endless!

Basic Ham or Chicken Salad (Easy)

1 or 2 Cans of Underwood Deviled Ham or Chicken
1 small container of Cream Cheese
Mayo (amount variant to individual taste)
Optional: Chopped Sweet Pickles (Gherkin or Mixed Cubes)

Preparation: If you have a food processor, that'll do it. Just mix ingredients in processor, blend quickly and place into a Tupperware container!

Pimiento Spread

1 lb of Gouda Cheese
1 small jar of pimiento
1 small container of Cream Cheese
Mayo (again, variant to individual taste)

Same as above, blend in processor adding mayo and pimiento's to in Tupperware container!

Waldorf Spread

If you have ever eaten Waldorf Salad, a mixture of chopped apples, raisins, celery, nuts etc, you will love this, and if you add left over chicken or tuna, optional.....out of sight!

Finely Chopped Apple
Finely Chopped Celery
Walnuts or Pecans (crushed)
Raisins (A variation of adding raisins is to replace white or wheat bread with Raisin Bread)

Combine apple, celery, nuts with mayo, and optional ingredients, store in tupper ware container!

Cucumber Spread

1 large gourmet Cucumber
1/2 small vidalia onion
1 carton of Cream Cheese

Combine ingredients in processor, blend and place in Tupperware container.

Personally, this is a summer sandwich! The sandwiches are "dainty", very feminine....especially when you trim the crusts... recipe can be used as a party sandwich for baby or bridal showers, wedding parties...etc. Can't really see these being offered on "Football or Wrestling" Night!

Reuben Hell

1 can of Corned Beef
1/2 cup Jalopeno's finely chopped
1 small container of Cream Cheese
Sauerkraut (use sparingly)
Swiss Cheese

Combine all ingredients except for cheese, in Food Processor, store in Tupperware container.
Serve on Rye Bread with Thousand Island Dressing Swiss Cheese slices..

Strange Twists
Having lived in several different areas of the United States as well as the world, I have been introduced to many different food specialties, novelties....
Raising three boys, I found myself constantly trying new ideas for lunch, breakfast and snack-time, to steer them from the need to emulate friends who thrived on Mickey-D's and Hardees.

Most people from the South have experienced a Banana Sandwich!

Banana Sandwich

2 slices of white or wheat bread
Mayo and/or Peanut Butter
Sliced Bananas

Spread the Mayo (and/or Peanut Butter) on each slice of bread
Add Banana Slices

Serve with Glass of Milk

Grilled PB & J

2 slices of Texas Toast
Peanut Butter (Chunchy Or Creamy)
Jelly (Your Choice, kids usually prefer Grape)

Spread Peanut Butter on Both sides of bread with Jelly
Grill in buttered skillet, browning on each side

Serve with Chips on the side and Glass of Milk

Peanut Butter and Onion Sandwich

Most of you may be wrethching at the thought of it, but it's surprisingly very good! While I was stationed in Pensacola Florida going through AVT school I did not have my car and when I shopped at the local commissary I bought staples mostly, due to the small size of my dorm fridge. A typical day for me was returning to the BEQ at lunch, grabbing a PB&O sandwich and watching "Young and Restless" in the dayroom before returning to Class.

2 Slices of White or Wheat Bread
Peanut Butter
Vidalia Onion

Spread Peanut Butter on bread top with Vidalia Slices. The Onions keep the PB from sticking to the roof of your mouth!

Pineapple Sandwiches (Sue's Sandwich)

My sister Sue, introduced me to the "Pineapple Sandwich" when I was a little girl. It's simple, and if you like Pineapple.....awesome!

2 Slices of White or Wheat Bread
Fresh Pineapple Slices (You can use Canned Pineapple slices as well)

Spread mayo on bread slices top with drained or fresh pineapple.

Apple Sandwiches
There is something about Apples, Mayo....seems to be a compatible pair!

Thinly sliced apples
Raisin Cinnamon Bread

Spread Mayo on bread, layer apple Slices!

P B & DP (Peanut Butter and Dill Pickle)

Flashback from the past! The first time I heard of this concoction was from a childhood friend, who absolutely praised the marriage of Peanut Butter and Dill Pickles. She also liked Dill Pickles and Applesauce but it had to be "Chunky Applesauce! Eventually, I tried the PB & P and really thought it was pretty good! Another crushing chips on PB & J! Just spread Peanut Butter on two slices of bread, add Dill Pickle slices, and you have a PB & DP!
