And don’t treat all bread equal
Consider chicken: Do you always cook it the same way? Nah. Sometimes you roast it with rosemary, other times you brine it with salt overnight and bake it in the morning. While it all started out as chicken, the way you handle it, depending on your ultimate goal, is different. That’s a way to look at bread, too, Mauro says. “Think about the bread you are using—there are so many varieties of sliced bread, rolls, subs, etc. and each works differently depending on the sandwich you are creating,” he says. Before you collect your other ingredients, commit to the style of sandwich you want, based on what you’re looking for. A roll will work much better with lobster, while BBQ is usually served on a bun, for example.
