Breakfast sandwiches are a deeply personal affair. The classic combination of meat, cheese, egg, and bread is infinitely variable, with everything from one’s preferred egg doneness to regional processed meat delicacies contributing to each person’s ideal version.

Personal preferences aside, most people would probably agree that there’s no improving on a bacon, egg, and cheese, but I disagree. Pickles make everything better — even an already delicious breakfast sandwich.

An American grilled sandwich is not a reuben without corned beef, but that doesn’t mean that reuben toppings can’t be used to upgrade other, vegetable-heavy sandwiches, because vegetables is a good practice. Tangy Russian dressing, melted Swiss cheeses, and funky sauerkraut bring joy to everyone they hang out with, and vegetable lovers should take advantage of the dynamic trio.

Chicken, tuna, and egg salad sandwiches can inspire two wildly different sets of emotions. They’re either deliciously restorative and nostalgic, or sad, boring, and reminiscent of bleak desk lunches (similar to fluorescent lighting). The key components never change — it’s the details that make these sandwiches great.

In a world where recipe writers seek to maximise both flavour and/or nutritional value, iceberg lettuce does not garner a lot of attention or praise. Though it may not have the peppery bite of arugula or the vitamin content of kale, shredded iceberg actually dominates as a sandwich green.

One of my favourite pieces of food writing is a Reddit post titled “You people make me sick.” What follows after the title is a veritable screed against members of r/GrilledCheese who populate their sandwiches with anything but bread, cheese and butter.

I am two things in the morning: angry and nauseated. I have always been this way, even as a youth, which made getting to physical chemistry at 7am all the more difficult.

Frying an egg for breakfast was simply not an option, but I’d be so hungry during lecture that I’d end up eating my lunch (usually a ham sandwich) for breakfast. Then it hit me: why didn’t I just make two ham sandwiches?

When it comes to burgers, I prefer to keep things simple. A thin, smashed patty; a good melty cheese; maybe a little onion, tomato and pickles. I don’t need fried eggs, avocado or super thick bacon. I am, however, very into the idea of cheese mayonnaise, which frankly streamlines my already simple burger even further.

A good sandwich doesn't need more than meat, cheese and bread, but adding some tomato, onion or other vegetable can make it truly great through the addition of fresh flavour and texture. Instead of slicing and dicing each of these components individually, you can save time by piling on the salsa.

The only thing sadder than opening your lunchbox to find a soggy sandwich is opening your kid's lunchbox at the end of the day to find a completely untouched one. Thankfully, you can prevent soggy, disappointing lunchbox sandwiches by making them with frozen bread.

I recently read an impassioned, specific description of a sandwich I knew I had to try. Oddly, it wasn't the bread choice that intrigued me, nor the combination of meats. It wasn't the suggestion of pepper jack cheese that drew me in. It was, shockingly, the greenery.

Though I'm fully aware that most of you have never seen or even heard of a "leftover sandwich", I am in the habit of ordering foot-long subs, and this habit often leaves me with an extra 15cm of sandwich. This is not a tragedy, but once the bread gets soggy, I am no longer willing to put it in my mouth. The sandwich contents are still good though, and there are many ways to eat them.

I am not a huge fan of athlete-designed or endorsed foods and diets, mainly because I am not an athlete, but I also hate the joyless, clinical approach so many of these "diets" take. (In fact, when Tom Brady released his absurd, overpriced "nutritional manual" last year, I was incensed.) But the NBA has a meal plan pretty much everyone can get behind: The humbly delicious peanut butter and jam.
