On the World Sandwich Day(November 3), we celebrate not just the convenience of sandwiches but also their universality. Although the origin of sandwiches is unknown, they have gained global relevance. In this post, we bring to you 5 simple Nigerian sandwiches you would love. A sandwich is as good as its filling, and it is usually the filling that makes a sandwich different. Here you go:


  1.       Bread and akara: You can’t talk about sandwiches in Nigeria without a mention of bread and akara. The fried akara is an exciting way of eating beans and with this combination, you get a meal rich in amino acids and energy. This particular sandwich is best prepared with unsliced bread in order to have the akara fillings fit in well.


  1.       Club sandwich: Club sandwich is not native to Nigeria but Nigerians have added some variants in the preparation of the fillings. On a general note, club sandwiches contain slices of hard-boiled eggs, bacon or chicken, fresh tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise. You may also include carrots, cabbage, and cucumber for a richer filling.


  1.       Fried egg sandwich: A regular breakfast recipe in Nigerian homes, this sandwich never loses its relevance. It is one of the simplest meals to whip up and it serves everyone on the table. Equally appealing is the variety that you can bring into preparing the eggs. The eggs could be fried plain with just salt or you could go the extra mile of adding pepper, onions, and seasoning.  


  1.       Sardine and margarine sandwich: This sandwich was one of the highlights of our childhood and because it does not require much to make, it’s your convenient choice. All you need to do is mix the mashed up sardines with the Mamador Spread and spread on the bread slices. Sardines are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids while a good helping of margarine provides the body with fat-soluble vitamins.


  1.      Prawn and mayonnaise sandwich: This sandwich is a great way of spicing up your breakfast or snack moment. Sprinkle some ground red pepper on a bowl of prawns, scoop in a spoonful of mayonnaise and stir. The filling is then spread on thick slices of bread and covered.
