If you want to know how to make a sandwich without getting soggy so you can prevent sandwiches from getting soggy when you pack them for your office or kids, try this easy and simple no soggy sandwich recipe.
The tips and recipe will help you with packing easy sandwiches for lunch, and will help you to keep sandwiches from getting soggy in a cooler with ice pack or regular lunch box.
I didn’t use tomatoes or mayonnaise in this simple sandwich recipe, to make it easy to pack without getting soggy.
In addition to avoiding any wet ingredients like tomatoes, mayo etc, also try to bring your sandwich to room temperature or at least cool down the sandwich for a few minutes before you pack it in the lunch box, as it will prevent the sandwich from getting soggy due to condensation, even if you use an insulated lunchbox with cooler or ice pack or you are using any regular lunch box.
You can also try using leak proof on the go lunch containers like this or use a simple way of carrying the sandwich bread and wet ingredients like fresh tomatoes and other ingredients separately in different leak proof containers and make a fresh sandwich at your office or picnic using the separately packed bread and wet ingredients, that way it won’t be soggy and you can enjoy freshly made sandwiches of your choice!
However this won’t work if you are packing the lunch for kids, as you would probably prefer to pack it ahead to make it really easy for kids.
I like adding tomatoes or mayo to sandwich if I can have it as soon as it is made, but if I am making the sandwich ahead or if I am packing it for a travel or for school, I usually avoid adding any tomatoes or mayo, as wet ingredients like tomatoes, mayo or other similar spreads can make it quite soggy with time.
There may be better ways to pack these without getting soggy, but I almost always avoid these wet ingredients if I am packing them for lunch or travel, as it is much easier to make a simple yet delicious sandwich which can be enjoyed later without worrying about getting them soggy in the lunch box.
As this is a vegetarian blog, I am showing you a simple sandwich without meat here.
This is also a very kid friendly sandwich recipe, which you can easily pack for kids lunch box and do not worry if it will get soggy, as this will not get soggy. I make this sandwich quite cheesy if I am making for kids, and sometimes I use an extra kraft cheese slice to make it more cheesy and delicious.
Adjust the amount of cheese slightly, as you desire and you may also experiment with other simple fillings, but make sure that the extra filling that you may add are not wet ingredients (like tomatoes) that may get soggy over time.
For example, this mashed potato sandwich recipe is another perfect sandwich that you can easily pack for lunch to office or travel, without worrying about finding it soggy, as it won’t get soggy.
The additional layer of mashed potato filling makes the sandwich more filling and delicious too.
I used burger buns, but you can easily replace it with regular sandwich bread of your choice.

- Take the first slice of bread, add a tablespoon of shredded cheese evenly as a single layer, microwave for 30 seconds so the cheese will melt.
- Place the onion ring on top of the melted cheese.
- Place the cheese slice (I used Kraft) on top of the onion.
- Place the lettuce on top of the cheese slice.
- Add 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese on the next slice of bread, and microwave for 30 seconds or until the cheese melts.
- Place the second slice of bread on top of the the first slice with layers of onion and lettuce, just gently press and seal the edges if needed.
