    Cubano Sandwiches

    Tangy Pulled Chicken Sandwiches with Pickled Onions, Apple, and Smoked Cheese

    Pastrami-Kimchi Reuben

    A Reuben is traditionally made with corned beef, which, like pastrami, is cured brisket. But because pastrami gets spiced and smoked, it packs way more flavor. At Wise Sons, they serve a classic rendition, but Beckerman and Bloom have also played with subbing kimchi for sauerkraut, which adds spicy flavor and crunch.

    Red-Eye Philadelphia Cheesesteak

    It’s common to make a cheesesteak when you work around the Philly food scene, but Jonathan Adams’ version has a surprise feature: red-eye onions flavored with espresso and caramelized to deep, dark perfection.

    Spicy Italian Ham and Salami Sandwich

    This “sitting sandwich” is great picnic fare because it only gets better as it sits. Pack it at the bottom of the basket so any weight on top will compress it, making it easier to eat. A mojo-like sauce made with fresh lime juice, garlic, and lots of fresh oregano perks up the flavor of a classic Italian sub.

    Brunswick Pork Sammies

    Made in an Instant Pot or other multicooker, these piled-high, slaw-topped pork sandwiches hit the spot and are easy to let guests assemble themselves. The pork is also great served on its own as a stew.

    Smoky Grilled Meatball Subs

    The pork meatballs in these saucy sandwiches get a double dose of smoky flavor: first from smoked paprika and then from the grill. Sweet, fire-roasted chiles and grilled tomatoes form the base for a delicious sauce.

    Grilled Italian Hero Sandwich

    This recipe, excerpted from the cookbook Panini Express, does wonders for the familiar meaty hero sandwich just by pressing and grilling it. Warmed up, the deli ingredients just taste better. Of course, starting with the best-quality mortadellia, prosciutto, and provolone (look for versions imported from Italy) will also improve the quality of the sandwich. Don't skip the peperoncini and peppery arugula, which cut the richness of the meats and cheese.

    Buffalo Chicken Panini with Blue Cheese and Celery

    Excerpted from the cookbook Panini Express, this sandwich is a tribute to Buffalo's favorite chicken wing recipe. If you don't have any leftover barbecued chicken, plain cooked chicken will do, especially when tossed with spicy barbecue sauce.
