18 Summer Sandwich Recipes to Make Now and Demolish in The Sun Later

There's more to sandwiches than ham and cheese. These creative takes on the world's favourite portable food are fresh, colourful and packed with filling combinations you probably never thought of.

Stuff your sandwiches to the brim and press them down with a brick - seriously! The filling fuses together and the flavours combine in an envelope of bread. Not only does this make brick-pressed sandwiches perfectly-portable, it also looks breathtaking when sliced up for sharing. Take them on a picnic, grab a bag of your fave crisps and pour yourself a glass of Prosecco.

Some of our favourite fillings include Mexican Chorizo and Potato, Cheesy Italian Deli Meats and Juicy Grilled Chicken and Kale. We can see you drooling from here.

Stuff your sandwiches to the brim and press them down with a brick - seriously!
