When it comes to making sandwiches, there are so many different combinations to try! You can mix up the meats, cheeses, sauces, and other toppings to get a different result each time. However, just because you can make a combination doesn’t mean that it will taste great. One of the trickiest things to get right is what type of bread to use. Bread is more important than you might think; the taste of it could make or break the sandwich! We’ve assembled the best tips for choosing the right bread below.

Versatile Breads

Before we get into the different scenarios where breads can and can’t be used, it’s worth mentioning some of the most versatile ones. These breads go well with pretty much any sandwich! The ones we’re talking about are called brioches and challahs. These two types of bread are very soft and squishy, making them good compliments with almost any sandwich recipe.

Soggy Fillings

While a lot of bread fillings can be great, there are a few that tend to get a little soggy. If you aren’t careful, these soggy fillings could turn your sandwich into a bit of a mess! If you’re using a filling that tends to get a little wet, such as tomatoes, thicker cut breads and rolls will generally be your best option. These breads absorb the sogginess of the ingredients without completely dampening the bread. 

Mediterranian Toppings

If you’re looking to make a sandwich with foods that are based out of the Mediterranean, such as feta cheese and tomatoes, you might want to consider a more oily bread. This is because oily breads tend to compliment these choices better. We’d recommend the ciabatta bread if you decide to go down this route, but there are other options too.

Healthier Toppings

Healthier toppings make great use of whole-grain breads like wheat bread and multigrain bread. These grainy based breads help to compliment the healthier flavors that lie in between them. They have a lot more texture to them than other types of breads, which helps to balance it with toppings like leafy greens and spreads like hummus.
