Menu: An All-Sandwich Dinner Party

Although this menu consists only of sandwiches, it's a far cry from simple, and is a worthy feast for any occasion. So go ahead and have fun composing a whole meal between slices of bread! Eat with your hands, get sauce on your face! Try pairing each sandwich with a different beer with our guide to sandwich suds or a gourmet soda, or mix up a batch of our favorite sweet iced tea.

Start the meal with cold sandwiches for nibbling: a straightforward bacon and bread sandwich, or a more complex pork sandwich, made with homemade roast pork and a bright tuna mayonnaise. (Don't forget the potato chips on the side.) For the hot main course, try crab cake sandwiches with aioli and romesco. The vegetarian-friendly stir-fried vegetable and cheese sandwich, which packs a punch with ginger and a sauce made with ground fresh rocoto, a spicy South American chile. And for dessert, pure and simple, nutella spread on ciabatta.

Potato Chips

This recipe makes a party-size batch of chips, perfect as a snack (with or without a dip) or as a side dish—not only with sandwiches but also on the plate with roasted or grilled meats (or game). If there are chips left over, cover them loosely with aluminum foil and store in a cool, dry place. See the recipe for Potato Chips »
