Step Up Your Sandwiches

It’s no secret that at the Brick Your Neighborhood Deli, we are passionate about good, yummy sandwiches made fresh from the finest ingredients. We love creating our signature sandwiches for you, fresh to order. But if you’re creating your own masterpieces at home, heed these smart sandwich tips from the Sandwich King himself, Jeff Mauro.

  • Put the extra effort in to melt the cheese or cook up some of the sandwich components. This extra step takes sandwiches to the next level.
  • Consider the bread you are using. With so many varieties available (ex. sliced bread, rolls, subs), think about the sandwich you are creating and how the type of bread can enhance it.
  • Condiments can really compliment a sandwich, adding an extra layer of flavor and moisture. And don’t be afraid to use more than one condiment. Layer different flavors and see how they work together, or use them as a marinade for meats.
  • Proper sandwich ratios are a must. Your choice ingredients should be proportional to the sandwich size. Feel free to pile your sandwich high, but be sure the elements are relative in size, otherwise your creation may be impossible (or extra messy) to eat.

Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Pinterest to share your own sandwich tips!

What Is A Gluten Free Diet?

Gluten free foods have been gaining a lot of buzz lately. A gluten free diet is used as long term treatment for people living with celiac disease, but more people are realizing their non-celiac gluten sensitivity. So how do you know you’re gluten sensitive? And what is gluten?

Gluten is a protein found predominantly in wheat, barley, rye and a newer grain called triticale. It acts as the glue that holds food together. Common foods that contain gluten include (but are not limited to) breads, cereals, pastas, malt, and beer.

When people with celiac disease ingest gluten, it attacks their small intestine and can lead to more serious health complications. Those who have non-celiac gluten sensitivity may notice symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, headache, fatigue, joint pain, foggy mind, numbness in the legs, arms or fingers, and balance problems when eating gluten-rich foods. If you suspect either of these conditions, it is important to discuss your symptoms with your physician.

If you are following a gluten free diet, for whatever reason, there are plenty of options for you. Most gluten free foods these days are obviously marked, but it is wise to learn how to read labels as well. Things to be wary of are malt, which is made from barley, and hydrolyzed vegetable protein, which may contain wheat.

Breads should be avoided, but there are gluten free bread options available. In the case of cereals, you should stick to the corn or rice based varieties. In lieu of regular pastas, you can find rice, corn or quinoa based pastas, or turn to good old rice and potatoes for your carbohydrate intake. You can find more information on gluten free diets here. However, when cutting gluten from your diet, you may risk a poor intake of fiber and some essential nutrients. Consult a dietician before switching to a gluten free diet.

With the increased popularity of gluten free foods comes a wider variety of options for those living the gluten free life. And lucky for you, we now offer gluten free bread! Our Boar’s Head meats and select cheeses are also gluten free, so you can enjoy a delicious, gluten free sandwich from the Brick Market & Deli!

Visit us Monday through Saturday 10:30am-7:30pm at 105 E Arrow Hwy in Pomona. Online ordering is also available Monday-Saturday 10am-7pm.
