How to Make or Break a Sandwich

By Jeanne Wolfley

A sandwich, in my opinion, is only as good as the sauce you put on it. Some of you are mayonnaise fans and others of you love your mustard or ketchup. Since the sandwich is ever evolving and anything goes when it comes to the ingredients you put in between or on top of two pieces of bread. The same goes for the condiments we put on our sandwiches.

A new-fangled sauce can make your everyday sandwich unique and delectable. We have been trying new sauces on our sandwiches and I'm telling you, a savvy sauce can make a good sandwich heavenly. It's time to get something on that sandwich besides mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup. Here are few recipes for some sauces that will turn your everyday sandwich into a gourmet sandwich.

Honey Mustard Dill Spread

1/4 cup mustard
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 teaspoon chopped dill
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon honey

This spread is fantastic on ham and cheese sandwiches. I also like this as an egg salad base! I just add a tablespoon of milk instead of honey. Whisk all the ingredients together for a delightful sandwich spread.

Chipotle Spread

1 cup mayonnaise
2 Chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
1/2 lime
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

You won't hear any complaints if you use this spread on a hamburger, a slider or a pork sandwich. Remove the chilies from the adobe sauce. Run a knife down the center of the pepper to remove the seeds. Finely chop the peppers. Stir all the ingredients together.
