Best sandwich I ever invented

I invented the perfect sandwich today: Oroweat Whole Grain and Flax bread, mayo, sliced pepper jack and sliced raw red bell peppers, cut in quarters, of course. Simple, exquisite, and the best! What's your best sandwich invention?

  1. I once created a sandwhich of: french bread, black forest ham, chedder cheese, and alfalfa sprouts.
    I then, refused to eat ANYTHING else except this exact sandwhich for 2 years or so.
    Now I can't stand the idea of sandwhiches, refuse to eat any pork products, and vomit a bit in my my mouth at the sight of classic american "orange" chedder cheese.

    Still like alfalfa sprouts though...

      "vomit a bit in your mouth"?! gee.....thanks Chef!

        Oh Casper - I live for sandwiches - my most recent concoction using left over ribs,
        Grilled cheese that weds taleggio cheese with short ribs, arugula and apricot caper purée on raisin bread. It's wonderful.

          You had me until raisin bread =P How do you prepare the short ribs?

          1. re: Firenzilla

            i bet the raisin bread actually makes that sandwich. sounds delicious!

        2. re: Chef Casper

          next time, just call it a 'gag reflex' and we'll know what you're talking about, OK?

            THANK YOU, toodie jane. i cannot stand that phrase, either.

        3. Bacon, mayo, and sweet pickle relish on lightly toasted good, white bread. I don't eat this often, but I love it.

          1. That sounds like a good vegetarian sandwich! I have two absolute favorite sandwiches that do require a little work or special ingredients, but they are so tasty.

            First, I love this Caesar Club Sandwich with Bacon and Sun Dried Tomatoes: - perfect for a nice dinner sandwich, a little something different.

            Next: Basil, Garlic, Brie and Salami Baguette: - this sandwich is my favorite picnic sandwich or deluxe lunch sandwich. Everybody I have served this to loves it, the basic, garlic and brie is a perfect combination.

            1. One of my faves: hummus, pickled beets and arugula on Ace Bakery's organic granary bread, toasted.

              1. This only works with fresh, home-grown or farmers market tomatoes, but it's my summer favorite. A good whole wheat bread, mayo on one slice, honey mustard on the other, thick slices of juicy tomato, a slice of good cheddar (or muenster or provolone), lettuce of whatever sort is in the fridge, maybe a little salt on the tomato.

                  This makes me think of my two favorites. Fresh picked, still warm from the sun (ideally) tomato slices on plain old white bread with Hellman's mayo. The other is a serious whole grain bread, one side with mayo the other with good mustard(dijon) avacado slices with swiss cheese.

                  1. re: Quine

                    My favorite childhood sandwich. Tomato & provolone on semolina bread with Hellman's mayo!

                  2. re: berkleygary

                    Similar to mine: home-grown tomatoes, sliced on whole grain bread with a little mayo, good cheddar, and cucumbers.

                    Another fave: sliced sweet pickles, cheddar, and mayo on whole grain bread.

                      Diet Sandwich! ...well, very close to it.

                      In college, a guy friend of mine wanted to lose some weight. One VERY late night, he created this sandwich - whole wheat bread, spread lite mayo on each slice...but on one, swirl in a few drops of Miss Anna's Hot sauce (it's a yellow habanero pepper sauce we grew up with on St. Croix, but you can now find similar habanero sauces in the states....or order Miss. Anna's online). Fill sandwich with thick slices of vine ripened tomatoes (I worked at a nursery at the time, so I was always bringing home Big Boys and Beef Steak tomatoes)...and a thick slice or two of very sharp cheddar cheese.

                      The reason we called this a "Diet" sandwich is because it burns your mouth which makes you want to drink a LOT of water. I never had the heart to tell him to drink milk to stop the burn...the water did the trick though...he lost 5 pounds the first week! I still like these sandwiches...might have to make one this week.....
