Sandwich Suggestions

Australia's favourite portable snack or meal is, undoubtedly, the sandwich. From the basic Vegemite, through the dainty, crustless cucumber sandwiches for afternoon tea to the definitely upper-crust lobster or smoked salmon varieties, sandwiches are enjoyed by all at any time of the day or night. Remember, they may be hot or cold, thin or thick, open or closed. The choice is up to you.
