There are many ways our Sainsburys, Ocado and Argos voucher codes can help you add a bit of edge to your usual sandwich, not least by saving money on those ingredients! But to celebrate British Sandwich Week, we thought we’d bring you a few sandwich secrets to help jazz up your favourite lunchbox staple if it’s getting a bit on the boring side…
1) Try a Different Type of Bread....
White sliced does have its benefits – it’s compact, it seems to last forever and it compliments many a different sandwich filling. But, sometimes a change can be as good as a rest, or whatever the food equivalent of a rest is (a treat maybe). A lot of the time we change our bread for health reasons (hello wholemeal), but a new bread doesn’t have to be a chore – treat yourself to a fresh baguette or crusty roll a couple of times a week and you might find yourself looking forward to your lunch a bit more.
Or you could consider trying your hand at baking your own loaf. This might not be as difficult and time consuming as you imagine, because with this Argos voucher code that saves you 20% on homeware items, you can afford to invest in a new bread maker such as the Panasonic SD2500 Bread maker (£89.99 before discount). This Argos discount code is valid until 15th May, so that’s plenty of time to start planning your new sandwich adventure.
2) Pack a Pickle Punch to Spice up your Sandwich
If your favourite sandwich fillings are starting to taste a little bland and boring, an easy way to liven them up is by adding some pickle to the mix. This doesn’t have to be your classic sandwich pickle (of cheese ‘n’ pickle fame), but could cover everything from pickled cucumbers to pickled sliced beetroot. Explore your options on how to save money off your supermarket purchases by using our latest Sainsburys voucher code or Ocado promo code (that both save you £20 on your first online order) and see if you can’t excite those taste buds.
3) Swap Your Salad for More Flavour.....
…For another salad. No, not as boring as it sounds. We simply mean substituting that usual lettuce for something a bit more flavoursome. Not that there’s anything wrong with lettuce – it’s an essential part of any BLT after all – but if you swap if for some rocket, asparagus, boiled egg, onions or watercress then you’ll be adding a new flavour dimension to that sarnie. So don’t forget to use that Sainsburys voucher code to top up your shopping list with some super salad packs.
4) Top Spreadable Alternatives
Mayonnaise is the usual suspect here, and there are several things you could try if you’re finding it all a bit dull. With cold meats, try substituting with minted yoghurt (this goes especially well with lamb), or for a healthy boost to your sarnie, spread with houmous instead. Other alternatives you could experiment with include pesto and cream cheese with a hint of sweet chilli sauce - see what’s available by browsing with that Ocado discount voucher, or get creative and make your own!
Use British Sandwich Week as an excuse to try something new, and you never know, once you stock up on supplies with our Argos, Sainsburys and Ocado voucher codes, you might find yourself picking up some exciting new sandwich habits.
