 9. Learn to stack your sandwich

Don’t stack your sandwich in a way that makes everything slip out. That just sucks. Instead, stack it like this: Cheese and meats touching the bread (because they grip it), then put slippery ingredients (lettuce, particularly) on the inside.

According to Food52, you’re going to want to grab a square of wax paper that is larger than your sandwich and twice as long as it is wide. Place the sandwich in the center and line the edges of the wax paper up to create a tent. Next, create a 3/4 inch fold and keep folding down until you reach the sandwich. Then, wrap like a present.

14. Make a Denver omelette in a mug

You can actually do this with anything you want, but all you have to do is spray the mug with cooking spray then add an egg, cheese, meat, vegetables, and anything else, then microwave for 1-2 minutes. Place between two slices of bread for an omelette-inspired sandwich.

Take the same ingredients above, but instead of putting them in a mug, put them inside a muffin tin. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes (check every minute after 15) and you have breakfast sandwiches every day. Freeze the leftovers and microwave for 1:30 for a quick morning breakfast.

Slice a bread loaf 4/5 the way through, add your meat and other fillings, and seal between two layers of aluminum foil. Place a pan at the bottom of the slow cooker so the sandwiches don’t touch the bottom. Add a 1/4 cup of water and set on low for four hours. More directions available here.
