Themes and variations

In a prior thread, I had mentioned my fondness for a variation on the BLT theme: since I cannot abide mayo on sandwiches, a friend introduced me to his family's tradition of substituting peanut butter for the mayo in a BLT. He did this at a greasy spoon in New Hampshire, and the chef at first refused the request, but relented after we insisted.
It was shockingly delicious!
So, with what kinds of deliciously heretical variations would you like to evangelize the chowhound world?
besides the aforementioned prosciutto'n'blue cheese fried sandwich, I've always been partial to peanut butter and kimchi sandwiches.
My "stay young" sandwich (both ingredients are supposed to help fight aging):
-- sardines (the littler, the better)
This is especially good on sliced French, with a little mayo and a little finely shredded lettuce.
I invented this in the cafeteria in Grinnell College 10 years ago:
Saltine crackers crumbled over vanilla soft-serve ice cream with a few twists from the pepper mill. Intriguingly delicious.
