Getting creative with sandwich recipes can be a fun and enjoyable activity to do with your grandchildren. It not only allows you to bond and spend quality time together but also encourages creativity and exploration in the kitchen. Here are a few ideas for creative sandwich recipes that you can make with your grandkids:

1. Spinach corn sandwich:


  • 4 slices of bread
  • Butter for spreading on the bread
  • 3/4 tablespoon of cooking butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon of all-purpose flour or wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk (add more if the sauce is too thick)
  • 1/2 cup of boiled spinach
  • 1/2 cup of cooked corn
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a pan and add the butter. Allow it to melt.
  • Once the butter has melted, add the flour to the pan. Stir with a spatula on low-medium heat.
  • Add the warm milk. Whisk carefully to create a smooth mixture, ensuring there are no lumps.
  • Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to taste. Mix well.
  • Add the boiled spinach and corn kernels to the mixture. Mix well and then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Take a slice of bread and spread butter on one side. Flip it over and spoon the mixture onto the unbuttered side. Place another slice of bread on top and spread butter on the outer side of the bread.
  • Grill the sandwich or use a sandwich maker until the bread is golden brown.

2. Broccoli and potato sandwich:


  • 1 cup broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized potato, boiled and mashed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 slices of bread
  • Butter


  • In a pan, heat some oil.
  • Sauté the chopped onions in the pan until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste.

  • Add mashed potato, turmeric powder, coriander powder, and salt to the pan. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Take two slices of bread and place a generous amount of the broccoli and potato mixture on one slice of bread, spreading it evenly.
  • Carefully place the other slice of bread on top to create a sandwich.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat.
  • Spread some butter on both sides of the sandwich. Place the sandwich in the heated pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until the bread turns golden brown.
  • Cut the sandwich diagonally into halves.

3. Chickpea salad sandwich:
