Sweet and Nutty Sandwich Ideas
We tend to think of sandwiches as a utilitarian way to slap together a quick meal. It's a radical idea, but there are sweet sandwiches that are terrific desserts. Some of them are great for snacks. Others are fabulous with tea. Meat sandwiches can be enhanced by the additions of fruit and nuts.
Today's ideas from the BellaOnline Sandwich Name Game tend toward the sweet or nutty. Nutty, as in almonds, walnuts, and peanut butter. From fruits to nuts, jellies to sweetened fillings, these tasty tidbits will expand your repertoire of sandwich offerings. Oh, don't forget the Nutella!
