Sandwiches are widely known to be a lunchtime staple, but that doesn't mean you'll always be craving one around midday.

For those weird hours between the afternoon and evening, and any other time you find yourself at the corner deli, here's what type of sandwich you should go for.

Sandwich for every single time of day

Dawn: Breakfast Burrito

Rise and shine! The sun has just come up, so why not have your breakfast rolled up in a tortilla

Morning: Bacon, Egg and Cheese

Whether you had a good night's sleep or pulled an all-nighter for your final the next day, there's still a chance you're feeling moody and don't want to get out of bed.

In order to brighten the start of your day and make going to that 8:00 am lecture a little more bearable, grab a sun-colored sandwich like bacon, egg and cheese.

Noon: Meatball Slider

After a few hours of being up and about, you finally feel alive and ready to seize the day. So what's better than a hearty sandwich—like a meatball slider—to keep you powering through to dinnertime?

Afternoon: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

As it gets closer to the end of the day, things can get a little nutty, and you might find yourself falling off track. But if you focus on your goals and do what you need to get done, you're bound to make it out of any jam.

Celebrate what you got done in a day with some PB&J.

Dusk: Panini

Now that the sun is almost down, there's nothing like a pressed-down sandwich—aka a panini—to end the day on a high note.

Evening: Ice Cream Sandwich

Since it's already late (and officially dessert hour), you might as well treat yourself to an ice cream sandwich.

Midnight: Grilled Macaroni and Cheese

Typically, you wouldn't be up this late on a school night (except if you're watching the season finale of your latest Netflix binge). Since you're up, what's really stopping you from eating this not-so-typical grilled cheese?
