When you are offered a sandwich, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a lettuce and tomato on toast sandwich or do you come up with more hearty ideas? I for one am tired of the boring and predictable sandwiches! A sandwich doesn’t have to be a brown bag item. It can be a meal on by itself!

People across the country and creating their own dinner sandwiches, and some of being pretty creative! Take a look at these people who maybe take DIY a little too far.

I set aside the power tools for my DIY Sandwich, but I fired up the frying pan and pulled out the cutting boards! Then I gathered my ingredients, then I started creating.

This sandwich was so savoury and delicious. It was also very filling and I could only finish half of it, but that means it was perfect for two instead of one! Here is a look at the sandwich before I added the top slice of bread.
