Pan Bagnat, a French tuna salad sandwich, is the original picnic sandwich. Traditionally, French parents would even ask their kids to sit on the sandwiches so that the crusty baguette would soak up all of the vinaigrette on the fresh tuna salad. This recipe from Food52 is packed with fresh herbs, olives, and crispy haricot verts, then dressed with an assertive amount of lemon juice and olive oil. Believe it or not, this sandwich gets better the longer it sits.
Who doesn’t love an epic party sub? For this stacked sandwich from Bon Appétit, it’s worth the money and effort to get the best Italian cold cuts.
In this clever recipe from Justin Chapple, Culinary Director of Food & Wine, slices of bacon are weaved together before cooking them in the oven. The result is a BLT that does not send shards of bacon flying with every first bite.
Check out these drool-worthy sandwiches from Smitten Kitchen. They’re actually quite easy to make, and to expedite the sandwich prep even more, you can cook the steak and caramelize the onions the night before your planned beach trip.

This fresh, summery sandwich from Love & Lemons is vegan-friendly, but we promise it will please even your most carnivorous friend. Make this recipe when the tomatoes are juicy and at their best so that the bread can soak up all of those precious tomato-basil juices.
