Secret Steps to Making the Perfect Sandwich
These are the seven layers every perfect, mouthwatering sammie needs.
Layer 1: Bread
Toast bread for a sturdier base. To cut in half, aim the knife straight across rather than diagonally. A straight cut provides thicker, stronger corners that make it difficult for fillings to slip out.
Layer 2: Lettuce and avocado
Dry lettuce with a paper towel to protect the bread from getting soggy. Place at the top for crispiness. Put avocado here so it’s not squished in the middle.
Layer 4: Crunchy layer
Place crispy ingredients such as bacon, walnuts, or celery in the center. This layer offers mouthwatering texture and stays in place surrounded by pillowy layers.
Layer 5: Vegetables
Salt tomato and cucumber slices and place on a paper towel for 10 minutes. This drains excess moisture, increasing flavor.
