One of the hospitals I worked for had a sandwich shop at the doctor's building next door. My favorite sandwich there was a "Veggie". It was a bagel (I would order plain sometimes, whole wheat at other times), split and toasted, with low fat cream cheese, cucumber, tomato, red onion, sprouts and lettuce. I would sometimes go wild and order it with a couple of strips of bacon. It was the most delicious sandwich. I now make my own version using the thin bagels you can get at the store.

One of my favourite sandwiches from one of my favourite restaurants is as follows:

Make a spread of cream cheese, chopped pecans or walnuts, and chopped black olives. Spread it on fresh whole wheat bread. Optional: sliced ham. The restaurant where I get this charges extra for the ham. They serve it with sliced cucumber and a few other vegis on the side. Well, they serve that on the side of most of their sandwiches.

Oh, one of my favorites is very simple and makes a great breakfast treat. It's just a bagel spread with cream cheese and sprinkled with walnuts. I know it doesn't sound like much but it's great when I am looking for something a little different. And we all know how good walnuts are for us.

My favorite breakfast was always a fresh bagel with spicy brown mustard, a slice of swiss and a slice of tomato...warmed in the microwave. I would actually crave them. It helped working in a bakery where fresh, hot bagels were turned out daily!

Grilled Reuben. I'd usually get one if it was on the menu.

Without knowing how well equipped your restaurant is, here are a few ideas that will work well for a small short order restaurant with limited space and equipment:

Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich
Monte Cristo Sandwich
Cioppino (Seafood Stew)
Curries (Your Choice)

You can find great recipes for all of these with a Google search. Also, here are links to three of my favorite food websites run by restaurant owners and chefs. You'll get great ideas and recipes from all three:

Food Wishes Video Recipes
Real Restaurant Recipes - Each is a Famous and Secret Restaurant Recipe
John D Lee on HubPages

Also, here's my personal tip for making great sandwiches: You can't make great sandwiches without great bread. Buy your bread from a top-quality commercial bakery in large, uncut loaves and slice it to order in thick slices cut on the diagonal.

Good luck and best wishes!

Miss NoraC, I think I need to be your neighbor so I can peek into your window to watch you cook!! You come up the the best ideas.

Now I think I need to stalk through all of your previous posts to see if I've missed anything!

Thanks for the websites. Our bread we make from scratch, honey wheat.
Our caramel rolls we also make from scratch as well as ccokies, muffins, scones, bread puddins, pies & layer cakes.
