 Germany: Grilled Bratwurst Sandwiches with Sautéed Apples and Cabbage 

Bratwurst is a traditional German sausage bursting with bold and smoky flavors. It’s usually topped with tangy sauerkraut, and we love the zesty bite it adds to the meat. We’ve taken inspiration from this original recipe and created a sweet-and-tangy apples and cabbage mix that pairs beautifully with grilled brats.

Vietnam: Pork Tenderloin Banh Mi Sandwiches 

Served on a short baguette, banh mi sandwiches are a Vietnamese sandwich staple. Savory meat is paired with pickled vegetables, fresh herbs, and a cooling mayonnaise seasoned with lime juice and fish sauce to balance out the jalapeño heat. Slicing the pork tenderloin helps it cook even faster.

Italian: Grilled Chicken Parm Sandwiches 

Derived  from Italian American immigrants in the early 20th century, chicken parmigiana quickly became a household favorite thanks to its inviting and hearty flavors. We’ve turned this comfort food classic into a 20-minute sandwich recipe, complete with the ooey-gooey melty cheese.

Moroccan: Moroccan Chicken Salad Sandwiches 

We can’t get enough of the rich flavors in Moroccan cuisine, which is why they inspired  this chicken sandwich. Stuffed into a light and fluffy pita, we’ve added harissa, a  mild chili pepper paste native to the country, to spice up store-bought chicken salad. Creamy hummus and yogurt help cool down your palate, while golden raisins add a touch of sweetness.

French: Sheet Pan Croque Monsieur 

This classic French café sandwich is made with ham, Gruyère cheese, and a creamy bechamel sauce. We’ve created an even easier version by baking them in batches on a sheet pan. A homemade bechamel sauce makes this quick recipe almost as decadent as being in a fancy Parisian restaurant.

Los Angeles: French Dip Sandwich 

Despite its name, the classic French Dip sandwich is said to be invented in a Los Angeles restaurant in 1918 when the chef accidently dropped a French roll into a juice-filled roasting pan. The sandwich shop favorite is made with thinly sliced roast beef on a  baguette and dipped into the flavorful juices from the meat (hence the name). Our version uses a can of onion soup as a shortcut to get it on your table in just 10 minutes.

New Orleans: NOLA-Style Muffalettas 

Muffaletta is popular sandwich made with a round Sicilian sesame bread that originated among Italian immigrants in New Orleans, Louisiana. Giardiniera, a mix of pickled vegetables, gets mixed with chopped olives for a tangy spread on this classic southern sandwich.

Cuban Inspired- FL: Pork Tenderloin Cuban Sandwiches 

This tasty ham and pork sandwich, also called a “Cubano,” is a Cuban American invention first popularized in Florida. We love how the salty bite of pork blends with the acidity of pickles, mustard, and melty Swiss cheese. Our favorite way to enjoy it is as a meal with a side of chips.

Greek: Chicken Gyros 

Traditionally, gyro consists of thinly sliced meat stuffed into a pita with vegetables and a creamy, cucumber-yogurt sauce called tzatziki. We love how hearty yet refreshing these portable sandwiches are, and, thanks to a few shortcuts, our version is ready in just under 30 minutes.
