Over 140 delicious sandwich filling ideas for packed lunches - sandwiches will never be boring again

I have to admit that I’ve actually had this post in the pipeline for absolutely ages, but as it is British Sandwich Week next week, I thought it was the perfect time to finish it off and finally share it! These ideas have come from lots of different sources, the most important of which was you, my lovely readers, via the fantastic community we’ve built around the Eats Amazing Facebook page and our Lunch Packing Community group (have you joined yet? Do come on over!) I’ve asked you for sandwich ideas several times over the last year and you’ve come up trumps every time, so I noted them all down and added them to the list – I feel hungry just reading it!

I also asked my fellow foodie bloggers if they had any sandwich ideas to share and of course they did so you can see lots of their gorgeous sandwich ideas as you work your way down the list and you’ll find links to all of their delicious sandwich recipes too.

So without further ado, I present to you over 140 delicious sandwich ideas that are perfect for packed lunches all the year around!
