OTHER IDEAS TO TRY

  • Put a lettuce leaf next to the bread so it doesn't get soggy from moist ingredients like sliced tomatoes.
  • Add "free" condiments like mustard or hot sauce, or mix a drop of sesame oil into reduced-fat mayo, for fab flavor.
  • Toasted bread stays crisp even if you're packing your lunch and not eating it for a few hours.
  • Packaged cole slaw, sliced apples, or shredded romaine add tasty crunch.
