These TikTok-Approved Sandwich Recipes Make the Perfect Lunch
You’re on a roll.
TikTok has become a one-stop shop for everything and anything you could possibly be looking for, whether it’s at-home science experiments or a review of a Rare Beauty’s latest product drop. One area, though, where TikTok seems to shine is the food category. Chefs and food lovers everywhere have been taking to the app to share delicious recipes ranging from fried chicken cooked using mini appliances in a college dorm room to Emily Mariko’s famous salmon rice bowls. But sometimes you’re looking for something to elevate an everyday staple, like a sandwich. Luckily, the app has a ton of recipes to try that will help you master making the perfect ‘wich.
Not sure where to start your sandwich-making journey? A recent poll of 2,000 Americans, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of lunch meat producer Buddig, discovered what ingredients people think make the most ideal sandwich. The survey asked participants about the best sandwich condiment, fruit and vegetable topping, meat, and cheese. For condiments, ketchup topped the charts with 61% of the poll group voting for the tomato-based spread. Tomato was also the top fruit/vegetable choice earning 54% of the group's approval. The top meat was black forest ham which was chosen by 39% of the group. Thirty-nine percent of the group chose cheddar cheese as the best cheese. According to the research, two in three Americans say they could live off only sandwiches for a full week, with the average American having a sandwich four times a week.
If you’re inspired by these ingredients and America’s love for a good sandwich, here are some of TikToks most mouth-watering recipes to up your sandwich game.
