Sometimes you need to make dinner for just yourself, and there’s nothing better than a simple, satisfying sandwich when you’re cooking for one!
I think many of you are usually looking for family-friendly dinner recipes, but surely some of you are single, have spouses who travel, or just need a quick meal for yourself when everyone in the family is scrambling around to different activities at dinner time. I’ve been eating a lot of dinners for one the past week since my husband can’t eat real food and my kids are super picky, so I need to make something just for me.
10 Easy and Quick Sandwich Recipes to Make for Yourself
Sandwiches are great cooking-for-one dinners because you can make them for the whole family or one at a time. If you’re like me, you don’t want to settle for plain old PB&J or ham and cheese for dinner, so I’ve put together some fancier sandwiches that are still easy but way better than what you might stick in a school lunchbox. Serve these up with chips, fries, or a side salad and you’ll have a great solo dinner!

My husband works in a hospital so he works completely insane hours. Lately, more often than not, it has just been me home for dinner and I have just been eating cereal for dinner! ha! So, I really needed this round up! It has tons of good ideas, I love the salmon sandwich! Thank you for including my tomato sandwich!
I didn’t know that about your husband, Annie! You can definitely do better than cereal for dinner ;) You should make your paninis or one of these other sandwiches! xo

Love this round-up, Andi! My hubby travels during the week, so I’ll definitely reference this when I’m craving a sandwich and cooking for one since my boys sometimes eat at 5pm. They all look so yummy!
My boys eat really early too! I’m glad you found this one useful, Maegan!
