Work sucks. Your sandwich doesn't have to.

3. Corned Beef Sandwiches With Copycat Grouchos Sauce

If you have a toaster oven at work, you can get the warm, melty cheesiness by toasting it right before you eat it. To combat sogginess, bring the dressing on the side and slather it on right before eating. Here's the recipe.

7. Deli-Style Tuna Salad Sandwich

Because by Friday you won't want to eat 5-day-old tuna salad: mix up a bulk batch of the mayo, veggies, and relish on Sunday. Then each weeknight, scoop out a portion of the mayo mixture and mix with one 5-ounce can of tuna. Here's the recipe.


11. Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato, and Basil Sandwich

Your favorite summer salad, between two pieces of bread. This is another place where you should pack your dressing separately and drizzle it on at lunchtime. Here's the recipe.


13. Garlic, Prosciutto, Heirloom Tomato, and Cheese Sandwich

OK, so your office break room probably doesn't have a panini press. But a toaster works just fine: pack the filling separate from the bread, then toast the bread and assemble right before eating. With prosciutto and tomato to make up for it, you won't even mind. Here's the recipe.

16. Tempeh, Guacamole, and Nacho Sauce Sandwich

This sandwich is mostly avocado spread, so two things will ensure freshness after a few hours in the fridge: packing the nacho sauce and guac separately from the bread (try just mixing them together to make a single mega spread), and squeezing half a lime over the top of your guac once it's packed in the to-go container. Then assemble the sandwich right before you stuff it in your mouth. Here's the recipe.


30. Brooklyn Avenue Sandwich with Pastrami, Coleslaw, and Russian Dressing

Here's another place where you'd want to pack that dressing (and maybe even the coleslaw) on the side, and put them on right before eating. Here's the recipe.
