Peanut Butter and Banana
Prosciutto, Mozzarella, and Basil on Pizza Bianca
Depends If Tomatoes Are in Season!
These days, I prefer to bring ingredients separately and assemble my sandwiches just before eating if it's gonna have to sit for more than an hour or so. My standard picnic fare is some good bread, some great creamy cheese or perhaps a little container of homemade mayo, and a great tomato if they're in season (which I'll pack along with a little packet of crunchy sea salt). If I can't get the tomatoes, I'll settle for some good saucisson sec or perhaps some thin sliced prosciutto. In fact, I'd probably go for that in addition to the tomatoes. My sister gave me an awesome tiny-but-heavy-duty cutting board which I bring along with a knife. Elaborate? Maybe. Delicious? Certainly. —J.Kenji Lopez-Alt
Turkey and Monterey Jack on Baguette
I pretty much ignored scrambled egg sandwiches until I got to college and, after eating at some Hong Kong diner-style restaurants, realized they're a helluva lot better when they're fresh and made with pillowy soft white bread fresh from a Chinese bakery. —Robyn Lee
