It's National Sandwich Week, so what better time to indulge in this foolproof lunchtime classic? Named after 18th century aristocrat John Montagu (the 4th Earl of Sandwich), the classic combination of meat tucked between two bits of bread has seen many an update over the years - here are a few variations ideal for satisfying those lunchtime hunger pangs...
Peach, portabello and avocado club
You don't need meat to make a good club sandwich. This veggie version uses portabello mushrooms, with creamy avocado and juicy peach providing contrasting textures. The perfect summer sarnie.
Beef schnitzel with mustard mayo and cucumber pickle
A super substantial sandwich that will carry you through to dinner time, you can't go far wrong with a good beef and mustard combination.
Chicken club sandwich
A triple layered creation combining chicken with red pepper, houmous and tomato, this toasted sarnie will go down well at any summer get-togethers.
Bánh mì Asian baguette
Vietnamese sandwiches are seemingly on trend at the moment and can be easily created using a leftover meat like beef or ham combined with chilli, coriander and some crunchy veg. Doughy Tiger bread is a good choice here.
Gingerbread ice cream sandwiches
Those with a sweet tooth may want to round off their lunch with a different kind of sandwich - this combination of spicy ginger ice cream and crunchy biscuits makes a sumptuous dessert.
