Bread and toppings yield a surprising array of flavors, but none of these great-for-lunch-or-dinner sandwiches needs more than five ingredients.
Sweet and salty are a great pair in sandwiches, and this recipe has intensely flavored salty prosciutto paired with candylike
fig preserves. Three minutes of grilling and pressing makes the fontina nice and gooey and the whole sandwich crispy and warm.
Honey and rum intensify the complex sweetness of bottled barbecue sauce for an easy, filling, and delicious sandwich. Top
with pickles, chowchow, or coleslaw for a more authentic barbecue experience.
Chutney adds spice to mango’s tropical sweetness, while queso fresco is soft and creamy. Smoky grilled flavor and salty ham
cut through both to create a filling, meaty lunch.
Sweet, nutty, and creamy are the dominant flavors here, with toasted cinnamon-raisin bread, fresh alfalfa, and crisp pears
offering lots of crunch. A nice lunch on its own, this sandwich also matches well with slightly sweet soups, like the Honey-Gingered Carrot Soup shown.
Mild Muenster cheese is too often overlooked; it’s great for sandwiches, burgers, omelets, or just plain snacking. It matches
well with thinly sliced ham, fresh spinach, and sweet-and-tangy chowchow in these crusty-breaded sandwiches.
• Chicago-style Italian bread

With only five ingredients to work with, strong flavors are the best way to build big taste. This dish delivers with intensely
sweet-and-sour balsamic glaze and pungent blue cheese (substitute goat cheese or feta if you prefer).
You’re already grilling the chicken, so why not throw the pineapple slices on there too? The caramelized pineapple has a mellowed
flavor and softness that’s perfect in this sandwich. A squeeze of lime is all you need to flavor everything.
