32 Examples of Premium Sandwiches

From Dry-Aged Steak Sandwiches to Epicurean Southern Ciabattas

— September 17, 2015 — Lifestyle
These examples of premium sandwiches prove that investing a bit more in specific ingredients can take a menu item to the next level. From mint-infused burger patties to grilled cheeses reimagined with braised beef, there are endless ways to turn an average sandwich into a meal that is both nutritious and able to provide considerable sustenance.

Faced with a less than stellar reputation, vegetarian sandwiches have seen a particularly impressive transformation. Pulled barbecue mushroom sandwiches offer a southern-inspired indulgence that makes for a pretty decent alternative to the classic pulled pork variety, while cauliflower can be used as a substitute for beef in Sloppy Joe's.

Whether you are striving for a delicious alternative to a wheat-centric bun or are merely looking for an original spin on a favorite, there are plenty of examples of premium sandwiches that benefit from carefully curated ingredients.
