26 High-Protein Sandwiches That Are Bound to Keep You Full ’Til Dinner
The pros of having salad for lunch: It’s refreshing, healthy and full of vegetables. The cons: You’re hungry again by 2 p.m. It’s time to put something in your lunchbox that will actually keep you full between meals. Here are 26 high-protein sandwiches that are satisfying and delicious. (You’ll be the envy of the break room in no time, trust.)
3. Buffalo Tuna Melt (47g protein)
Canned tuna has rescued mealtime more often than we can count, but the tinned fish deserves better than mayonnaise and a few cracks of pepper. Here, it’s combined with spicy Buffalo sauce and ranch dressing before being blanketed in mozzarella cheese.
11. Chicken and Cheddar-Waffle Sandwiches (56g protein)
The trick to craggy, crunchy fried chicken? Double-dipping the pieces in both buttermilk and flour before frying them.
15. Italian Deli Pinwheel Sandwiches (41g protein)
Aka the easiest, most elegant way to serve sammies for a crowd. The meaty trifecta of Genoa salami, pepperoni and prosciutto is rounded out with roasted red peppers and sliced provolone.
26. Pancetta-Wrapped Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (34g protein)
When in doubt, wrap it in fancy bacon. Consider that our life motto. (Not that garlic butter and melty mozzarella cheese need much help.)
