British Sandwich Week – our top sarnies

This week (8th – 15th May) is British Sandwich Week, a week-long celebration of the greatest food to go and quite possibly the most iconic British culinary invention, the Sandwich. To celebrate, we here at UnCOVered have listed our ‘favourite’ sarnies. These are not the greatest sandwiches in the world, this is just a tribute.

The Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese SandwichLet’s take a moment to bask in the majesty of the grilled cheese sandwich. It is the ultimate snacky lunch, when made properly of course. Try adding some ham, chicken, pickle and/or a sauce of your choice to mix it up. It’s versatility is another glorious attribute to a sandwich that should be made a Wonder of the World in my opinion.



Skips and jam

Skips and JamRight, bear with me. This may sound a weird combo… and well, it is… but it’s worth trying out. It’s a wonderful combination of sweet and savoury. Perfect for those summer days when you’re out and about. Have you ever tried this?



The BLT (Bacon lettuce and tomato) bacon! No much else needs to be said. Take the brilliance of bacon and add some salad items for the perfect sandwich filler combination.



Cheese, brown sauce and picked onion Monster Munch


Another unusual concoction involving a popular brand of crisps. We’re reliably informed that the brown sauce is optional and pickle works just as well. Another quick and easy filler for the busy student with places to go and no time to lose.



Fish finger sandwich on brown bread

fish fingers

The smashing together of fish finger and buttered bread is a very popular choice. You can also choose from an array of condiments to go with your Captain’s Finest. Any salad and most sauces go really well and it’s best enjoyed hot. Throw in some onion rings and you’re having a party to which your tastebuds are invited.


Peanut and Nutella


Why have I not thought of this one before? I like peanut butter, I like Nutella, I like sandwiches! No brainer. I’d like to try this toasted for sure. I’m going to have to try this one during British Sandwich Week. Is it a breakfast, a lunch, a snack or a desert though? Probably all the above.



Cheese and pickle

Ah, the traditional favourite. Really simple, quick to make and a step above a simple cheese sandwich. Perfect for any occasion. In fact, I may go make one now.


Ham and mustard

Crisp sandwich

crisp“If you disagree… you’re wrong.” The words of a member of the UnCOVered team on this one. A pretty popular mixture and the variety of crisp available allows you to tailor it to whatever your tastebuds fancy. Personally I prefer the smokey bacon or maybe some salt and vinegar. Choose your weapon.
