That way the romaine is very flexible and doesn't crack when you roll the leaf. Lay some thin meat slices and a bit of cheese, roll, and stuff into your mouth. Or be polite, stab with a toothpick, and put a few on a plate. Mine is usually the grab-and-go version.
Me too, CG...those do look good. I'd slice the 'cuke sub' into rounds though, for easier eating. I think by the time I got my mouth around that and bit down, all the goodies would squeeze out the side.

I love lettuce wraps too, one of my fave hot weather 'sandwiches'.

Out here there are a lot of restaurants that serve 'bread-less' sandwiches and use lettuce leaves. I like that they are starting to recognize people want options to bread.

I've discovered another way to make a breadless sandwich using thick slices of provolone and spreading egg, tuna, etc., salad on top..

It's really decadent with pimento cheese!

I know I'm two years behind on this topic, but Steve, this bread looks amazing. Can't wait to give it a try.

(a little late to the party as well )
I like the idea of the "wraps" using lettuce or other vehicles,
but I go a step farther.
Summer Rolls, YUM!
I've been catching up on my magazines and was just reading this one:
Summer Rolls Recipe | Bon Appetit
The combination possibilities are endless!

One thing I've always loved is a tuna fish sandwich. Being that I need to watch my carb intake these days, I've found that tuna fish salad is an excellent topper for celery. It's not a sandwich per se, but it's a great substitute for a sandwich that allows me to eat one of my favorite sandwich fixins.

Another yummy substitute it making a BLT and using a Romaine leaf to hold the mayo, tomato, and bacon.

Simple ideas which I don't think of often enough.. Keeping bread out of my daily intake is difficult.. I'll do both of these..

Great idea! Another for my try list. I'm watching my carbs also and sandwiches have been the hardest for me to adjust.

Bibb lettuce makes a great sub for the bread in a Bahn Mi "sandwich". Especially with pork meatball and diakon slaw.
