Yes, I currently live in the world of sandwiches. All the different variations you get in the shops almost makes you think that the UK in general do not know what else to eat but sandwiches. Truth be told, however boring it may be, it does fulfill your food groups - carbo, protein, fiber and the list goes on.
In light of the fact that living on budget does require some extremely innovative thinking in making food taste good and still abides by your pocket, it is using whatever you have in your fridge and larder to make a simple sandwich that still satisfies your cravings for one.
So what were the ingredients in making this mouth watering sandwich? EASY!
2 Roman Lettuce leaves
Butter - for spreading
A dollop whole grain mustard
2 slices edam cheese - mild
4 slices ham - here I used chicken slices
The trick to actually making a sandwich taste great is not merely the ingredients itself but the sauce that you add. From ketchup to mayonnaise to chilli sauce for the ones who like it spicy, each sauce you add makes your sandwich taste different. You need not run out to the stores to get one either. Use what is in your fridge. I used Marks & Spensers Wholegrain Mustard simply because it was in the fridge and I love mustard.
However not everyone is a mustard fan, so just go easy on it.
So dig in people to what I would call a totally budget sandwich that satisfies your tummy and that you need not spend a whole lot to make.
