Soggy sandwich

How do I keep my bread from getting soggy. Here is my sandwich. Bread, lettuce (iceberg), 2 tomato slices, 5 dill chips, ham, bread. In that order. I have tried mixing it up but my bread is always soggy by lunch time. How do I keep it from getting soggy aside from bringing all the ingredients and building it at work?

  • You could always try keeping the tomato separate - that's probably the culprit. If you haven't tried putting the tomato in the middle that might help. Between the ham and lettuce. :) Good luck.

  • The only way is to wrap your veggies in a paper towel and keep your bread separate, be sure to wrap both in a baggie or in a tight plastic container to keep them fresh.

  • Build all the ingredients, but put the bread in one bag/container, and the rest of the ingredients in another, put them together at lunch. Also, if you use mayo or mustard or whatever, that could contribute too. I always put that in a little container with a lid and spread it on when I am ready to eat.

  • My MIL used to spread a very very thin layer of butter/margerine to the bread for my DH's school lunches. He used to do it for his own sandwiches and I asked him why and and he told me his mom did it to keep his school lunches from being soggy by lunch time.
