Classic Sandwiches with a Twist

From grilled cheese to PB and J, Sandwich King Jeff Mauro has proven himself the master of reinvention with his surprising new takes on classic sandwiches. Here are some of his most-popular creations.

Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese with Bacon Two Ways

Jeff's showstopping sandwich is unlike any grilled cheese you've ever had. A helping of creamy mac and cheese makes up the ultra-cheesy filling, and crispy bacon adds crunch.

All-American Down-Home Patriotic Meatloaf Sandwich

When making meatloaf, Jeff says the key to juicy texture is to use 1 egg for every pound of meat you have. Once cooked, slice it and serve on potato rolls with crispy onions plus bread-and-butter pickles — you can't go wrong.

Buffalo Chicken Sub

Jeff recommends using chicken thighs for his spicy Buffalo Chicken Subs — the dark meat lends extra flavor and juiciness. For an over-the-top lunch, serve the broiled, caramelized chicken on French bread with blue cheese crumbles, fresh veggies and Homemade Ranch Dressing.

Steak Joint Chicago Cheese Steak

Move over, Philly: Jeff makes his cheese steaks a la his native Chicago, with bone-in rib eye for rich flavor, plus extra cheese and a topping that makes any food scream "Chicago" — hot giardiniera.

Crunchy Fried PB and J

Jeff takes this childhood staple to the next level by using good raspberry preserves in addition to sliced banana and potato chips, for crunch. The real surprise is in the sweet, crisp bread, which Jeff dips in egg and cinnamon-square cereal before frying.
