I had a wonderful muffalata at a New Orleans pool hall. My attempts at duplication have never come close. Maybe I need to add the smell of stale beer and cigarettes.

There was a little hot dog stand outside the back gate of Plattsburgh AFB in NY that served a sandwich they called “Michigans”. Clare and Carl’s. A hot dog with a chili sauce on top.  Not sure how they got called “Michigans”. I probably haven’t eaten a hot dog since but these were interesting.

I wonder if @Bart Ell ever stopped there. 
Are we having fun yet?

@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.
Thank God for breakfast sandwich's.

You caught me. After seeing the works of art already starting, my contribution seemed a little shabby  :-[

Don't do that! All sandwiches matter!!  Have you forgotten - "It takes a village   of sandwiches"? they all matter, ever the mundane ones.

Wonder bread, butter and sugar was our usual Saturday lunch in between pickup games behind the house in the neighborhood sandlot.

@GravitySucks  Many years ago I heard my Grandmother talk about eating bread with lard and sugar when she was young.  She was way before your time obviously.  I am fascinated by the simplest, for lack of a better term, peasant style foods that sustain us from generation to generation.  Most very similar.  Heck...When I was a kid I used to eat a lot of buttered toast with cinnamon sugar.  :D

My kid LOVES cinnamon sugar toast!
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

And the New Orleans accent of the waiter.  Once a YAT, always a YAT. LOL

Ok, I do I REALLY weird one after Thanksgiving every year: Wheat bread with ketchup slathered on it, thick sliced turkey, salt and fresh ground pepper. It's pretty much the only thing I eat ketchup on.
