Our 5 Top Toasty Sandwiches to Warm up Your Week

It's always a good time for a melty, toasty sandwich and our top picks are sure to have you racing to the kitchen for an early lunch!

This post is brought to you in partnership with Cuisinart.

If you're like many of us, a quick sandwich in the middle of the day is par for the course when the lunch hour strikes. But this fall, we're excited to have WARM sandwiches for lunch, starting with a few of our favorites below!

From Salmon and Gruyere Grilled Cheese to a classic Reuben, there's a winner here for every sandwich lover.

To make these sandwiches come to life, we experimented with the new Cuisinart Griddler, and we're big fans. With five cooking options (grill, griddle, panini press and more!), it goes the extra mile in the kitchen, and helps make all our sandwich dreams come true!

  • Reuben Sandwich

    A classic reuben sandwich takes two slices of rye bread and adds layers of corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut. We love making our own Russian dressing to take things up a notch (it's easy and leftovers are delicious ... on everything) and grilling the sandwich to perfection.
