I was sent another great cookbook recently to review, The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches by Susan Russo, Food Blogga. This is a cute little sandwich cookbook, loaded with fabulous pictures by Matt Armendariz, Matt Bites.
The cookbook is cleverly arranged like an encyclopedia with fun facts about each sandwich, so it’s fun to read as well as gorgeous to look at. It also includes topping ideas or Mix ‘n’ Match suggestions to change up the recipes. For example, ideas to change up this Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich with ham, sausage or chicken-fried steak, or top it with cheese or country gravy. A great way to start the day.
Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich
- 1 biscuit warmed (I used my sweet friend Janet's recipe, [Edna's Cafe Biscuits])
- 1 tablespoon butter divided
- 2 strips bacon heated (I used Costco Hormel frozen fully cooked bacon)
- 1 Egg fried
- Cut biscuit in half. Spread 2 teaspoons of the butter inside.
- In a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook egg as desired.
- Place on buttered biscuit, top with bacon. Serve hot with remaining butter.
Since the cookbook is arranged like an encyclopedia you have odd combinations next to each other, like a Hot Roast Beef sandwich recipe is followed by an Ice Cream Sandwich recipe. It might have been nice to have them grouped by type of sandwich, but I suppose it’s hard to decide whether a sandwich is a dessert sandwich or perfect for lunch like the Nutella Banana sandwich was for me.
So many sandwiches, so little time.
Look at all those amazing sandwiches! I want one now…..please 🙂
I really should know better than to go to your site Barbara when I’m hungry.., I’m seriously drooling here. They look wonderful 🙂
Since I already make so many variations of sandwiches…I probably wouldn’t think I’d benefit from this type of recipe book. Once I gave it some thought…maybe learning a few different combinations may be of some inspiration after all.
Thanks Barbara…good review and tasty looking sandwich ;o)
Ciao for now,
This looks one million times more delicious than McDonald’s!

I’ve actually been looking for a cookbook of sandwiches…
I usually go get take out for lunch and my waistline and my finances suffer, so I think I need to just pack a sandwich in the am….
The banana and nutella are calling to me right now…
A Breakfast Sandwich is great on the weekend! It looks so good! We also like them using a raisin english muffin with a slice of cheese.

That’s my favorite breakfast sandwich. 🙂 I do love sandwiches and I eat one every day for lunch. I bet I could find an alternative to my usual pbj in this book!
The nutella sandwich looks delicious, so do the biscuit sandwiches. For someone who doesn’t like eating biscuits, I would love to have a taste of those!
