Sandwiches
« on: January 03, 2020, 09:58:54 AM »
I was scanning some threads that I normally don't on a regular basis and came across this from @KSM .

We might need a sandwich building thread at some point. Got to looove a good panini :-*

So there ya have it.  Let's talk about sandwiches.  Your favorites, favorite places to get them, personal creations (what do you like to make?), best & worst you've had, etc.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, gyros, and all that jazz are also accepted in the discussion.  Doesn't have to be just sliced bread.  ;)  Anything you can stuff between bread of any type.  :)

Sandwiches are a beautiful thing.  8)

NICE!!

I'll be back later after my Monte Cristo breakfast sammich. I may even DIP IT IN GRAVY AS I EAT IT!  There is so much to discuss in the wonderful world of sandwich making. Even better than omelets IMO. I hope we can see some arguments along the way.

@juan You mentioned Velveeta in an omelet :o  What say you with the mighty sandwich? Say it isn't so.  :'(
5000.
Done.

For me, I've always loved a good Reuben.  Grilled rye bread, tender slices of corned beef, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and lots of Swiss cheese.  Mmmm mmm.  :D

I also get a craving for a good old fashioned 'open faced' roast beef (or turkey) sandwich on thick white bread with crispy fries all smothered in gravy.

@KSM   I mocked the idea of Velveeta.

I was traveling one morning and hungry. I got a link sausage biscuit at the Friendly Gus truck stop in East Dublin, Georgia. Man, was it good. Two sausage links stuffed into a real, homemade biscuit. I took a chance after seeing the cook - a friendly African-American woman with such a big smile you’d want her to be your grandmother. Also, she had biscuit flour on her apron showing she’d actually made them there.

It’s not poutine unless you sneeze some curds on it.

The absolute best sandwich in the world is a Chicago area creation. Italian beef combo with Italian sausage, a garlic/pepper/oregano infused bath of au jus, topped with sweet green peppers and giaridiera relish.

The celery salt on the french fries is another Chicago area tradition.

One of the most interesting sandwiches I have had was while helping my farm boy brothers-in-law build his house in the woods of Upstate NY. 

He picked some fresh cucumbers, a couple of beefsteak tomatoes and sliced them up.  Had this really moist and hearty oatmeal bread from Vermont. And a 1/4” slice of regular Velveeta. 

Simple and delicious.  No condiments. Just good stuff.  Well.  Except for the Velveeta.  But it all came together to absolutely quench my hunger. 

I have tried to replicate it iver the years but can never find tomatoes with just picked  heirloom flavor and I believe the cucumbers he used were the pickling kind.  Not the plastic waxy ones like they sell in the grocery.
