What about you?

So what's your favorite sandwich?
Strangest sandwich?
Most recent sandwich?
Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others?
Homemade or store bought?

So many sandwich related questions, feel free to ask some, heck, if you're up for it go ahead and post a picture of one that you are about eat/have eaten.


I just ate a particularly tasty, but simple salami and cheese sandwich, this has inspired this thread.

oh man. thats a whole new world for me. I use to be satisfied with the basic PB &J or friend bologna sandwich. lol But recently Ive tried things like the Reuben Sandwich and the muffaletta. Those are the only 2 ive tried from this deli place, and are my 2 new favorite sandwiches.

Most things with bacon in them. The spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy's is ammaaazzing.

Strangest sandwich?
Anything with Mayo.

Most recent sandwich?
For breakfast at Boyfriends we made bacon, some toast, and had a 'nothing but bacon' sammich.

Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others?

Rye or challa bread.
Butter the inside parts.
Lettuce.
Tomato.
Colby cheese.
Turkey.
Hard salami.
Bacon.
CONSUME.

You may also lightly toast the bread. BUT NOT TOO MUCH.

Also appropriate for those of us who are lazy as shit:

White or rye breadness-toasted.
Butter that shit.
Lettuce.
Tomato.
Bacon.
FIN
NO MAYO. MAYO IS HORRID.



Homemade or store bought?
I enjoy eating out. You know what's tasty? The spicy chicken sammich from Wendy's. Italian sammies are also quite tasty. The kind of sandwiches I don't have the effort to make at home.

So what's your favorite sandwich? Fresh mozzarella with tomato, basil, and a balsamic reduction (or just balsamic vinegar and olive oil when I'm lazy) on a crusty baguette.

Strangest sandwich? KFC Double Down. It ain't right.

Most recent sandwich? Cheddar and grainy mustard on rustic bread, grilled, with a side of chicken sausage and green apple slices.

Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others? A good grilled cheese is hard to beat.

Homemade or store bought? I prefer homemade; I'm usually the only one who can make a sandwich just how I like it. Except for my husband, who's got a much defter hand with grilled cheese than I do.

We're less than a month away from the third (or fourth? I don't know) annual Sammich Day (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Sammich-Day/93770200090). If you're big into sandwiches, I invite you to participate in this year's festivities!

DANG I forgot I was in the mood for a BLT the other day, and I never got it because I was too lazy to go buy... everything you need to make a BLT. I like mine on kaiser rolls, but white toast is fine, too. Also, I do use just a thin coating of mayo. Judge all you want, it makes it creamy and good.

My favorite sandwich is from Atlanta Bread Company, but it is seasonal, so I cry until the fall.

Turkey Cranberry Twist:

Asiago Focaccia bread, turkey, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and cranberry sauce. Add provolone if you feel saucy.

The BEST sandwich, ever!

I can only make a BLT when my sisters not home. She's vegetarian and says the smell of bacon is disgusting and wont let me make it in her house ~,~ and since she's gone for the entire week that means an entire week of nothing but bacon for Emmers! OM NOM NOM NOM.

It's not just mayo (which looks like bottled manjuice) but many condiments; ketchup,mustard,relish,mayo,most dressings....I just like my noms to be in their most natural state of nom.

Dude, if your mayo looks that much like manjuice, something is seriously wrong with your mayo... Or with your man.

I find that the right condiment in the right proportion generally adds a piquant note to a sandwich, in addition to helping bring all the components together perfectly. A dash of mayo on a BLT offsets both the saltiness of the bacon and the tartness of the tomato, and provides a slight tang that brightens the generally bland bread and lettuce just enough.

Right now, it's between:
1. Mozzerella, basil and olive oil panini
and
2. Turkey, avocado, cucumber, bacon, sprouts, and sunflower seeds on toasted wheat.
But I'm a vegetarian, so I have to go with 1 for now.

Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others? My number 2.

Flora that is a mighty tasty sounding sammich. They have a Sammich named after a road here in Charlottesville called the Ednam that is one of my faves. I get it on a 7 grain with herb mayo smoked turkey avacado lettuce tomato and Muenster cheese. It's pretty epic but if we are going with fave sammiches of all time...

me and the Reuben/French Dip are in a constant battle for my fave position.

Reubens... Corned Beef... Sauerkraut... Thousand Island dressing... Rye bread grilled to a nice golden brown. zomg...

And French Dip... I mean a tried and true Hoagie roll with Swiss cheese and Skirt Steak melted to maximum yummy with a side of Au Jus to dip it in...

Hearty wheat bread, herbs, nutritional yeast, guac, and LOTS of veggies. Trust me, you never miss the meat with my sammiches and they're stacked bigger than your head :D

Maybe have your sis try veggie bacon? Just fry it in oil and its really tastey (you might even like it) it helps distract from the much missed bacon..I think we veges tend to get sick because bacon is so rich, but if you balance it with something yummy for her it helps!

Love sandwiches XDDDMy favorite is whatever meat with cheese, tomato, and lettuce with no mayo~ or just a PBJ. lol but my usual answer is "whatever you got XD "The strangest? Jello Sandwich. I was bored and hungary with only jello and bread in the house.... it was odd... Most recent? uh...don't remember? PBJ I think.... I like them equally. Homemade cause it's cheap and Store bought cause I'm lazy. ...I'm not a very picky eater... example I don't like mayo but if you put mayo on my sandwich I'll still eat it. lol

The only thing I don't like on my sandwich that would make me not eat it is seafood. I'm allergic to Shrimp and that turned me off from all other seafood. I'll only eat sashimi on new years with a lot of wasabi~ lol and sashimi is a little odd to put in a sandwich lol

Do you love sandwiches?

Sandwiches are awesome because you can eat them with your hands and a napkin resulting in fewer dishes to be done.

So what's your favorite sandwich?

Grilled vegetable panini. Ciabatta bread drizzled with olive oil, grilled eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, and a little pesto. Nom nom nom.

Strangest sandwich?

Erm, can't think of any I've ever had that I thought was strange. I don't consider the KFC Double Down to be a sandwich. A sandwich requires bread. IMO, the right bread makes or breaks the sandwich.

Most recent sandwich?

Fried egg and bacon with lettuce, tomato and a little mayo on sourdough.

Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others?

See "favorite" and "recent" above. Also a Cuban pork sandwich with caramelized sweet onions and hot peppers that I got at a sandwich shack in Seattle once.

Homemade or store bought?

In general, homemade though with a few exceptions (see above comment to Dire Kitty).

That sounds amazzzinnng. Accept every time my sister attempts to grill an eggplant it turns into a giant oil sponge and she quit trying a while back /snort/

Though I am quite the meat-freak when it comes to meals (a meal isn't complete to me without SOME kind of meat in it. somehow it feels..empty without it. )but there are SOME. SOMEsammiches that do better without any. The mozzarella and tomato for example. But it has to feel hearty enough that I don't think I am eating just a bunch of little strips of veg between some wimpy little bread.

my favorite sandwich is tuna salad, a very simple tuna salad with only tuna, mayo, onions and pepper in it so that the tuna's flavor isn't detracted from, on hollowed out baguette with mozzerella and sprouts. Alternately, oven roast deli chicken with sprouts, mozzerella and enough pepper to make your mouth burn, inside a pita. I believe a proper sandwich should be constructed rather than just put together lol. I find that cranberry-raspberry juice makes an excellent complement *sounds pretentious* :sunny:

Putting bacon in a sammich just makes it a game of 'find the bacon in sammich' because that's all your going to be doing. Every bite you take you're going to be making sure there was bacon in it.


Indeed, I prefer dead things in my sandwiches, preferably cows.

Cows are delicious. Ground up into patties of meatyness. Grilled with cheese on top. Then lettuce, tomato, BACON, and maybe some BBQ sauce and crispy fries on top if your feeling exotic.

Boyfriend makes a really good marinated chicken where he uses Italian salad dressing and puts it in the fridge to mingle and make out a bit with some chicken strips then cooks them up in a skillet. But he says in the warm weather he is going to grill those babies up on his outdoor grill. All I can think about is how good they'd be as a sammich. Between a thicker bread, with just some lettuce and tomato. Nothing too fancy. But what kind of bread to use throws me off.

White bread is too wimpy.
But I don't want anything TOO thick.

Re: "salad" sandwiches. I'm fish-o-phobic but I love egg salad and chicken salad sandwiches. Finely chopped celery, some kind of nut (walnut and pecans are both good) and just enough mayo to hold everything together.

True if you're talking standard white loaf bread. But sourdough and some other rustics are technically white breads and are still ultra tasty.

But I don't want anything TOO thick.

Also true. If I'm using a roll, I often slice off the top-most part before splitting it (this is kind of mandatory for panini anyway). Rolls and baguettes can also be hollowed out - the better to stuff in more filling!

Fair enough, Challa is technically a white bread isn't it? I imagine the kinda sweetness from it might go nicely with tangy italian chicken. [/quote]

I imagine that the hallowed out inner bits of a baguette would be tasty if you made them into crutons :K I usually just get rye or white at the grocery store for my at home sammich making. Some kind of rolls if I am making burgers or chicken burgers. But if I go out to a sandwich shop I like the more substantial bread. Just not paying for the whole thing at the grocery store to do it myself >> -cheap-

I love Mediterranean flavors, and pita wraps or sandwiches are one of my favorites. I like red pepper hummus, seedless cucumber, baby spinach, shredded carrot, red onion, and feta with a dill vinaigrette.

Black forest ham ftw.

The best way to eat black forest ham is with Brie and honey mustard on hearty bread.

Also a Cuban pork sandwich with caramelized sweet onions and hot peppers that I got at a sandwich shack in Seattle once.

I like egg salad, too. And deviled eggs, but those are hard to put on a sandwich. I took one of my favorite deviled egg recipes and wound up accidentally turning it into egg salad-- wasn't paying attention and started chopping the eggs. So I just threw in the rest of the ingredients and made a salad instead! It was awesome with basil on toasted whole wheat bread or ciabatta rolls.

EDIT: Satisfied my craving for a BLT today. A little more mayo than I was hoping for, but that's what happens when you go to a deli. They never seem to understand "just a tiny bit" does not mean "dripping off the lettuce". It was good, though.

It was really an amazing sandwich. On fresh crusty bread. I had never been to Seattle and hadn't seen my friend, who now lives there, in 10 years. When I told her I was coming to visit she talked about things we could do and eating Cuban sandwiches from this place was high on the list. I was sort of like, "Sandwiches? Well, o.k., but that doesn't seem like it would be all that exciting for a first-time visitor." Oh how wrong I was.

Yes, I consider wraps as sandwiches.

i love sandwiches and as a college student i sort of have to eat them lol. anyways as a kid i grew up on regular old turkey ham sandwiches with lettuce and mayo and cheese....ewwww

i hate mayo, and im allergic to all forms of mustard and also despise onions.
so whats a girl to do?
GET CREATIVE THATS WHAT!!!
lol

anyways i had my very first awesome sandwhich at subway i started off with sweet onion chicken teriyaki but moved on to oven roasted chicken breast with cucumber melted monterey chedder and lettuce =)

after that grew boring i had my very first grilled cheese sandwich back in july (i know im a deprived child!!) and i fell in love <3!!

so after plain old grilled cheese grew boring i started getting creative during my winter break i started making a grilled mozarella chick and ranch sandwhich on sourdough it amazingly delicious! then when i went back to school and ran out of ranch i was lost for a while untilll i learned hot to roast tomatoes in my oven. so i started roasting tomatoes and substituted chicken for tomato and ranch for pesto and created my grilled mozarella with pest and oven roasted tomatoes sandwhich, which turned into a grilled mozarella sundried tomatoe and pesto sammich.

while home for spring break i dont have pesto so i created a grilled mozarella chicken and cranberry sauce sandwhich all as very tasty and satisfying on sourdough bread =)

Egg salad and lettuce on whole wheat.

Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others?
Besides my fried egg sandwiches, I'd suggest the double grilled cheese sandwich from the internet cafe in my town. (they use two kinds of cheese and and it's tres yummy!)

Homemade or store bought?
Homemade, definitely.

humus, cucumber, tomato, spinach and green peppers in a pita

That sounds fantastic.

The Sandwich is the perfect meal. I've been experimenting at the the deli

Can't stand Bologna. It too closely resembles human flesh for my taste. (No, seriously that's my reasoning) and if the bread gets soggy, I'm prone to gagging but otherwise, loves me some sandwiches.

Right now my favorite is cajun turkey on white wheat bread with mustard and swiss cheese. I'm a simple girl with my sandwiches. *nod*

Here's the recipe (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Deviled-Eggs-with-Capers-and-Tarragon-234400). People largely have Strong Feelings about capers in either direction, and I'm part of the devotedly pro-caper faction. That's especially because anchovies gross me out, and capers are a good substitute when you want that salty, briny flavor.

That does sound delicious as either deviled eggs or egg salad (and I am annoyed with myself for not insisting on having some when I had the opportunity). I'm pro-caper/anti-anchovy and like the substitution idea.

Those chicken ranch wraps from Tim Horton's are sooooo good. I used to work there and I ate them like every day, especially with BACON.

Bacon is amazing. It's the meat that goes with all other meats. It's the blackbelt of meats.

I never liked the wraps Tim Hortons had.... they were skimpy and cheap tasting. I think mainly due to the fact that their chicken is gross.

My comfort food has always been egg sammys. "The Egg Sammies" is a great band name btw.

Homemade or Store bought it takes alot to make a sandwich bad.

Favorite: Italians always.

Fresh bagget, olive oil on both sides of the bread ,green peppers, onions, lettuce, cured black olives and pickles on top.Pickles and olives should be on top of one another. Salt pepper, a little italian dressing on the veggies. Then comes provolone followed by the lunch meats. Now we can put which ever meats you prefer, sometimes im not always in the mood for salami. So I do ham, turkey, peperoni, and if I feel like it capricola(not sure if I spelled that right..) and salami.Follow this with some mustard and mayo. Done.

Sammy that I recently made.
Roast beef and turkey with onions ,roasted red peppers and onion chive cream cheese. So I start off with nice big chunks of onions some garlic. Throw that in a pan with a little butter and fry those suckers up! After a good 10 mins I throw in my roast beef.(I like my roast beef a bit red but thats just me.)Set the roast beef on top and season a little I like to add a bit more garlic salt and pepper. Let that cook for 5-10 then throw the turkey on top another 5-10. Then I throw provolone on top of the meat and let it melt. While thats happening I put onion chive cream cheese on the bread a nice layer on one side of the bread. When the cheese is melted I sit the meat aside put the veggies(onions and roasted red peppers.) on the cream cheese followed by roast beef turkey and cheese. Yum.

No tomato.

We have colby cheese which is good.

A little bit of lettuce left over.

I can deal with this.
It wont be perfect, but I can make it work.

The only Lunchables I eat are the bologna kind >__>

But yes. when the bread becomes a sponge, I kinda gag. SOME sauce on it I don't mind. But that's VERY rarely.

Like on a brisket sammich you need some BBQ sauce.

There's a BBQ place called Famous Daves that has a really fantastic beef brisket sandwich, and for those of you in the south, Dickies BBQ is amazing too.


Oh man.
Boyfriends mother made crockpot ribs one day and we came home to left overs of it that had been sitting in the sauce for a while. When he reheated them in the pot they where AMMAAZINNNGGG. I can only imagine how delicious those would be with some tasty bunz dipped in their own saucey goodness.

I've never heard of Dickies BBQ but than i just moved down south not too long ago, on another note i like brisket sandwiches with the sauce on the side so that i can dip it, either that or i just buy a nice thing of Au jus sauce and pour a bit over the brisket and eat it like that.

hmmm depending on what type of ribs they were i would either use a Italian loaf or a Sour dough loaf to make a "stripped rib sandwich"<--totally have to try this Fourth of July

I am not sure where in the South you are but it was a fairly popular one in the Dallas area. They have one at the Forth Worth zoo's cafeteria. By the way, if you can make it...totally go to the Forth Worth zoo. The Dallas zoo is absolutely god awful and I hated it. The F.W one is smaller but so much nicer.

You can get very close (http://immortalbeloved0.deviantart.com/art/Wisdom-102505291?q=gallery%3Aimmortalbeloved0%2F8781059&qo=8) and personal (http://immortalbeloved0.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=fort+worth#/d1t492d) with the animals even with the enclosure barriers.

I imagine any sturdy bread would do, since I like the BBQ sauce like crazy. I get extra on the meat itself, and some to dip the sammich in.

It's called the Palfy... and I have one almost every Friday.
And it's the highlight of my day.

It's on sourdough bread, with smokey mayo, turkey, cheddar and swiss (I think), onions and bacon.
And then they put it on a panini maker for a few minutes.

Ah, the sandwich. Such a delicious food staple. Subway is always good. Generally, I prefer turkey sandwiches. Grilled cheese will never go out of style.

There are two really weird sandwiches I've made. For the first one, I took a bunch of feta cheese and mashed it up in a bowl with a little bit of olive oil and lemon juice along with some oregano and chopped red bell pepper to make kind of a spread/dip concoction. Then I spread that on some toasted bread. As long as you don't use too much feta (if your sandwich is two inches thick, it is too much. Yes, I know this from experience), it's delicious. The second one had peanut butter, whipped cream cheese, cheese whiz, honey, and crumbled feta.

Really??? It's sooo good. My mom makes the BEST turkey soup ever. You have to let the whole carcass boil in water like, all day or something to make the broth.. I dunno. It sounds gross, but it turns out so delicious XD

I always put mashed potatoes on too :3 And cranberries, stuffing, salt, pepper, and a teensy bit of butter on the bread.

My mom makes a great chicken soup using the whole chicken, boiling the heck outta it for as long as she reasonably can. It's nom-tastic yo'. She pulls out the chicken and uses only the white meat for the actual soup and I get to nom on the chicken legs that have been boiling in broth and veggie goodness for like..8 hours ~,~ my god that alone is heavenly.

I am glad I am not the only one who slathers all that crazyness on some bread and pretends that it's a sammich when in reality all it is, is a giant heart attack hiding between some bread.

Have I got a heart attack sandwich of glory.

First, I live in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farms. We have heavenly bacon. This is key. I fry some bacon in a pan (enough for the sandwich and then for nommin on their own). When they're good and cooked and there's a thick layer of fat in the pan, I remove them and lay them on a piece of lightly toasted and fairly buttered bread. I then fry an egg in the bacon fat, as well as a few slices of onion. When they're done, they get added to the bacon with a thick slice of cheese draped (and subsequently melting) over the egg and onion. If I'm in the mood, I'll add avocado and switch out the butter for mayo. This thing usually ends up over an inch thick (filling width, not counting bread) and literally dripping bacon fat... but it's sooooooo good.

-ciabatta

IT. WAS. INCREDIBLE. I ordered my usual mozzarella-tomato-basil pesto, but it didn't hold a candle to his. I'm going back to that store tomorrow and ordering one for lunch. I don't care if it cost $8.50. I don't. Worth it.

I love sandwiches but I like them more simple ^^' And I like them hot.

One of my favorites is grilled cheese, just because (aside from the comfort food factor) it tastes totally different depending on what kind of bread and cheese you use. Sourdough and cheddar, wheat and jack, squaw and swiss... or a combination like mozarella, asiago, parmesan and garlic on Italian bread... yummy :) And it's not hard to add other ingredients like ham, turkey, etc etc

I also like toasted wheat bread slices with nothing but a fried egg in the middle. The broken yolk part is practically a condiment in itself.

Experimenting is fun! Though yeah, my sandwiches probably sound naked compared to some of the other things here xD I'm way too lazy to gather lots of ingredients in advance; I just improvise mine.

Best sandwich I have ever tasted comes from a place here in Vancouver called Finches(on pender and homer, if anyone is curious). Everything in this cafe is amazing, but the veggie sandwich is godly.
Whole grain toasted baguette, half an avocado, chedder, sprouts, roasted red pepper, red onion, lettuce, and an awesome blend of spices I am still trying to figure out what exactly they are.

Uhhhh, most ridiculous sandwich I've seen? A thing my boyfriend made that he dubbed the "Perogie sandwich".
It consisted of two large slices of flatbread, several boiled potato-and-cheese perogies, slathered with steak sauce, with a couple slices of turkey breast AND melted swiss cheese.
It was about six inches high. X_X

....and then there was bacon pie, if that wasn't bad enough... (it was awesome on it's own though. The bacon was actually WOVEN into that latticed pie top crust.)

You all severely make me miss meat. I've been a pescetarian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pescetarianism) for almost a full year, so I can't slather a bunch of bacon and chicken onto some bread and indulge myself in all the pan fried glory... But alas! It is not to be.

So what's your favorite sandwich?
I'm a big fan of the simpler things in life. Egg salad would be my vice of choice.
Strangest sandwich?
Lasagna sandwiches are the bomb. Garlic bread, a nice spoonful of tofu lasagna, a little fresh Parmesan for good measure, another piece of garlic bread, and viola.
Most recent sandwich?
I recently had a sandwich made of soy meat supplement that was pretty beast.
Best tasting sandwich that you would suggest to others?
Homemade egg salad!

Either! I really like homemade, but I like certain restaurants for sandwiches. McAllister's, for one.
