Sandwich lovers rejoice – today is National Sandwich Day! Few meals are as tasty as two slices of bread with fillings between them, and there’s never a shortage of scrumptious sandwich options available to try. For this National Sandwich Day, though, take your sandwich-making skills to the next level with these six ambitious sandwich recipes – and while you’re at it, make sure to follow these three tips for how to build the perfect sandwich.

1. Bacon Mac and Cheese Melt

This savory, delightfully sloppy sandwich is the perfect bridge between two American cheese classics: grilled cheese and mac ‘n’ cheese. It even includes bacon, which adds some extra fatty flavor to an already delicious mess of a sandwich. Plus, you’re almost certain to already have all the ingredients you need for it on hand.

2. Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

No, this isn’t a pulled pork sandwich with Dr. Pepper on the side – Dr. Pepper is in this sandwich. Gather a few pounds of pork shoulder, Worcestershire sauce and other condiments, herbs, plenty of sugar, and Dr. Pepper and put everything together in a slow cooker. As your pork’s cooking time comes to a close, get your bread slices buttered and ready to fill with delicious pulled pork. Get the recipe via Spicy Southern Kitchen.

3. Chicken and Waffle Sandwich

When you read the name of this sandwich, you probably thought of a classic diner plate of boneless fried chicken atop giant waffles, all drenched in sticky sweet syrup. With this recipe, you can turn this diner classic into a sandwich. The secret? Making waffles at home using some baking staples plus pimento cheese and using the waffles as your sandwich bread.

4. Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

This recipe balances the joys of Hawaiian pizza with the gooey delights of a classic grilled cheese using only six ingredients: Bread, butter, pineapple, ham, mozzarella cheese, and pizza sauce. Best of all, it’s super quick to make. Get the recipe from Home Cooking Memories.

5. Spicy Fish Sandwich & Jalapeno Cole Slaw

Good luck keeping this one between the buns! While you cook frozen fish filets, you’ll chop up a bunch of vegetables to make your coleslaw. You’ll then make aioli from mayonnaise, jalapeños, and some basic seasonings. Once all your ingredients are ready, simply stack them together into a messy, spicy sandwich that’s well worth the sticky fingers and sweaty forehead. Get the recipe from Binky’s Culinary Carnival.

6. Monster Vegan Sandwich

You’ll have to go full snake mode and really unhinge your jaw to eat this one, but the effort is worth your while, as is the work involved in making the black bean and chickpea patties that comprise each sandwich. And with red pepper, squash, and guacamole between patties, this sandwich has everything that even meat lovers could want. Get the recipe from The Flexitarian Runner.
