    International Chef Amy Riolo shares her recipes for three simple sandwiches from all around the world. These are perfect to pack for lunch at the office or at school!

    Amy Riolo: Hi! I am Chef Amy Riolo and today we are making globally inspired sandwiches. The first sandwich which we are going to make is a Cheese and Herb Wrap.

    And the first thing we are going to do is slather the things called flat out to the butter and then I am going to add about 2 ounces of cottage cheese and just put it right along the center here, and then I am going to put a healthy dose on top of fresh herbs. So I am going to start by rolling my sides right in the middle. This is just kind of like cigar fashion. Then I just take this side and roll it right up, keep my sides in and just keep rolling all the way down, then you can just slice it right in half, and those are our Cheese and Herb Wraps.

    Now we will move on to our second sandwich which is a fresh Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil. So the first thing we need to do for our sandwiches is just start out with a nice Italian style or baguette roll. So we will start by layering our tomatoes, add the fresh Mozzarella. Let's just go ahead and layer those down and then we can just top with our fresh Basil. Let me go ahead and seal the sandwiches. So there you have our Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Sandwiches.

    Our third sandwich is our Apple Cheddar Panini. To start, what we want to do is just slather some white bread with honey mustard sauce. Then we will go ahead and just lay some of our apples right down over top. Then we will pile a little bit of cheddar right on top and then we will add some raisins and then we will seal the top of the sandwich and we will lightly press the top of the sandwiches with our panini press, or with the bottom half of another pan, if you don't have a panini press, and then we will grill the sandwiches for about 3 to 5 minutes each or until the cheese is melted and the bread begins to get toasted.

    So here are three great globally inspired sandwiches perfect for school lunches or after school snacks. Enjoy!
