The Best and Tastiest Travel Friendly Sandwich


I am absolutely exhausted. My whole body aches. But I am really on a high. Today I went with my eldest, my son Lee, to an amusement park. First time I was at one for at least 15 years. We had a blast. I want nothing more than to just fall asleep. But I wanted to leave you with a post first.

It's a short one.

But it's a good one.

I want to leave you with the absolute best travel friendly sandwich, one that I have made multiple times for myself and my kids and it is a hit every time. We had them today at the amusement park and they lasted from the morning, when I packed them, until lunch time and even until dinner time. They didn't get soggy or gross. Just deliciousness. And it isn't just good for traveling. It is, hands down, my sons' favorite sandwich. And I don't blame them.

Here it is.

It's simple.

Baguettes or buns, gluten free or not
Artichoke spread (store bought, sorry, I don't have a recipe for this)
Romaine lettuce
Smoked cheese

1. If using a long baguette cut into reasonable size lengths. I cut my son's into three. Mine were gluten free hot dog and hamburger buns. Cut your buns in half lengthwise, making sure not to cut it all the way through.

2. Spread with artichoke spread.

3. Wash and dry your romaine lettuce very well. Put on your bun. I like to fold it over so there's a double layer of lettuce on the bun.

4. Add cheese slices. I like two per sandwich.

5. Wrap up so they don't fall apart. (I used aluminum foil but plastic wrap works too.)

Enjoy, up to many hours later.

Sorry, no picture, there are none left! So instead I shared this picture I took today from the top of the ferris wheel on our trip.

What is your favorite travel sandwich? Favorite sandwich in general? Does this look like a recipe you'd try?

  1. That does look like an interesting combination! I bet it's really flavourful.
