    Most of the fillers I make should last 3-4 days in container in fridge - they rarely last two days though, as they get used to jacket potato fillings, used in toasties.
    Have said mayo for all fillings, but sometimes I use fromage frais, greek yoghourt - depends on what I have. Salad cream could be used - I just don't like the taste.

    Grated cheddar, finely chopped onion and mayo, sometimes bit of grain mustard.

    Grated cheddar, onion, chopped tomato, cucumber, mayo. (Sometimes add a little garlic and touch tomato sauce for a "pizza" flavour for toasties).

    Mashed boiled egg, mayo and spring onion. Sometimes add diced tomato and or cucumber, sometimes a tad of grated cheddar too.

    Mashed boiled egg, veggie bacon cooked and diced, mayo, diced tomato, mayo.

    Mushrooms and onions, finely diced, touch of garlic, sauteed for about 5 mins, wee bit of spices, something like bit of chilli or paprika. Blitz in food processor/hand held thingie, add some fromage frais to make into a pate - not too much though.

    Quorn pieces or fillets - toss in herb/spice mix to your liking - I usually do a spicy chilli kind of mix with different ground pepper, bit of olive oil. Bake in oven. I usually serve this as a meal, perhaps in wraps with salad, grated cheese, salsa. Usually have some left over and blitz remains with some fromage frais or greek yoghourt - great on a sandwich or in a wrap with some lettuce, cucumber and tomato.
    Obviously same can be done with left over chicken.

    All that I can think of at the moment - getting too late for my brain to work!

    When we were kids my mum used to mash a tin of corned beef with a grated onion and a dollop of brown sauce for butties. It never lasted long in our house, but it would probably keep for 3-4 days in the fridge. (If we had any leftover mash, that would go in too).

    My partner and I make sandwiches every day for our lunches to take to work. I love the fresh sandwich fillings you can buy but I feel terrible about what a waste of money they are. So I was thinking I'm sure we could come up with some recipies of our own.
    One I do make from time to time is:

    egg mayo with bacon bits
    2 eggs,
    1 dsp tesco value mayonnaise
    chopped up grilled bacon misshapes
    it's really delicious and cheap.

    Any other ideas?

    We had a thread about the "best sandwich" a few months ago, but I cant find it..LOL. Had some excellent ideas.

    requires brains!
