Who thinks of sandwiches as comfort food? Hot sandwiches are the ultimate food that satisfies the appetite and soothes the spirit. Warm, often served with a hearty helping of gravy, these tasty treats can elevate the leftovers from the day before.
Another bonus with these hot sandwiches is the part that they can play in managing your food budget. When you have a little of this and a dab of that hanging around in your refrigerator, sauté the food, pile it on some bread or a bun, and toast the whole thing. You can blend it together with those odd bits of cheese that you have left from other culinary projects. Other ideas for binding a warm sandwich together include using marinara sauce or a salad dressing.
