Favorite sandwich - Page 2

post #31 of 56
I created this after working all day, not eating, and having waay too many bourbons at the end of the night.
It's called the Niteclub.
thinly sliced grilled chicken breast, with arugula, tomato, applewood smoked bacon and jalapeno jack cheese, slathered with a spicy cumin, green onion aioli, on a ciabattina that's grilled and pressed thin like a Cuban sandwich.

guaranteed to sober and satiate!

Other than that I'm with Marmalady - garden tomatoes, Best Foods mayo(on this side of the Rockies) and sliced Italian bread with the sesame seed crust.
Okay, and maybe a good meatball and provolone on a hard roll...

Does anyone like sardine sandwichs?
I adore them. :)

Sardines rule!!

When I was a kid I used to mush them up and mix them with sliced onion and lots of black pepper, then spread it on pita bread. Yuuuuummmmmm....

One of my favorite dishes that I came up with for myself anyway one time was sauteed mushrooms with garlic and lemon. I added a handful of blue claw crab meat and used that as a topping for a hamburger on a grilled garlic bun. Man that was good!:chef:

Yum! - I dig it - your own perverse version of surf and turf!
Can I have one now pleeeze? with some bacon on it too?:bounce:

Sardines- mashed with evo and lemon, lots of black pepper, served on sturdy toasted multigrain with sliced red onion and AVOCADO (maybe a handfull of mesclun if I've got it). It's my favorite to eat with a side of cut up blood oranges...

Hmmm......:lips:

1)Ciabatta with sliced fresh tomato, Mozzarella di bufala, basil leaves, extravergine olive oil. Basic but my best favourite!

2) From South to North: Black rye bread with Sudtiroler speck, German pickled sweet and sour gherkins and sweet mustard;

3) A warm sandwich with Prosciutto Crudo, Brie and spinach;

4) Bresaola, Arugula, thin slices of Parmesan cheese, extravergine oil and pepper;

5)Shrimp, cocktail Sauce and Stracchino.

Hope in US Bresaola and Sudtiroler Speck are available!
They're my very best favourite Salumi!:bounce:

Two more appetizers...

Bresaola rolls:
Mix some Caprino (fresh goat) cheese with extravergine olive oil, 1-2 tbsp milk, white pepper, chopped "Erba Cipollina" (I think the French name of this herb is Ciboulette, could you let me know the English one please?:confused: ) and work until creamy. Spread on thin slices of bresaola, roll them up, tie with a stem of "erba cipollina".

Speck-Pineapple skewers:
Small cubes of fresh pineapple, wrapped in slices of Sudtiroler speck, skewered and mounted on a whole pineapple for the choreography;)

For me there are essentially four all-time favorites:

Pastrami Reuben
Corned beef hash on sourdough with mayo and tomato
Cuban medianoche (ham, roast pork, swiss, pickle, butter, mustard on egg bread and put in a press)
Frita/Cuban Hamburger (minced chorizo patty w/diced fried onioins topped with shoestring potatoes on a bun)

I have to admit that my list started with one sandwich, but quickly expanded while memories were stoking my belly flames. I wish I was back in Chicago where I could get the cuban sandwiches. I guess I can settle for Zingermans.

My favorite sandwich is one we serve sometimes at the bakery, Fresh shrimp salad on cheap white bread(exactly how it is written on the board) you can get is plain or smuched with the hand print. This holds it together.

I had to put in my two cents just to indulge myself.
I like:
BLT's but only if they are good tomatoes
Tuna melts
any kind of melts, really...
Sometimes I like to make melts out of english muffins.
When I lived in massachusetts I used to get linguica sliced thin, and make sandwiches with that and a fried egg and cheese. It is my own 'cholesterol special'
To me it's not so much the filling as it is the bread. I don't usually care for wonder bread, but I like sourdough, rye, cracked wheat, things like that. =)
Oh boy, I'm hungry now.

Wow, great topic. Hard to beat these off the top of my head:

Corned Beef Reuben with lots of creamed horseradish.

Charbroiled Cheese Burger. (lettuce, tom, and mayo--of course)

Anything Pannini with lots of cheese(I don't care what kind as long as it's meltable)

Stromboli

Grilled cheese anything(see pannini)

Tuna Melt

Patty Melt

Anything with bacon..................cheese..........mayo....... ...burp!
:cry: :lips: :cool: :D

I just made an interesting one....reminants from training omelet makers for the market..
whole wheat sourdough bread toasted mayo cheddar melted....
saute mushrooms, caramelized onions, sauteed apples (granny smith)....top cheesy side with crisp bacon bigger than bits, and mound sauteed stuff on top..pretty good.
I may be eating alot of ham, bacon, sausage, cheddar, veggie sandwiches the next 6 months.

Me! I'll take the liverwurst on rye

That is my very favorite sandwich, but I use Duke's mayo, and it has to have potato chips on the sandwich. But I only have about four sandwiches a year. Being so short, I avoid bread as much as possible :(

I was raised on those tomato sandwhiches. My mother did it with two slices of white bread, miracle whip spread on one and margarine on the other add in vidalia onions and tomatoes with salt and pepper.

Peanutbutter and banana sandwiches were a regular menu option as well.

Speaking of simple sandwiches...

Buttered toast with tomato slices, salt and pepper. So simple. So good:) Another favorite is fried eggplant slices with sauteed pepper strips and onions, in olive oil with a little s&p, basil and garlic. It's great on Italian bread or toasted sub rolls.
