What are your favorite sandwich fixin's?

My favorite sammy is homemade w/w bread with real mayo, hot hoagie spread, a touch of onion and loaded with iceberg lettuce! Pretty much a hoagie without any meat or cheese. I could eat this everyday. Healthier for you too. What are your favorite fixin's?

  1. I love good rye and pumpernickel bread. I also love good pastrami, sour kraut, swiss cheese and spicy mustard.

    1. I am not big on cold sandwiches (or sandwiches in general for that matter), but every now and then I find one with just the right combination of quality ingredients that I find just amazing. Last week I had a "Chilled Grilled Chicken Sandwich" that was described on the menu as a "classic Vietnamese sandwich". It was sliced chicken breast, lightly tossed in a herbed mayonaise, on a fresh baguette with red onions, cilantro and sliced fresh jalapenos. It was so big and so delicious that I saved the second half for breakfast the next morning. Of all places, I never would have guessed I could have gotten something so yummy at an airport wine bar. They must make good money off their $9 glasses of wine, because this huge sandwich that came with an also very good small side salad was only $10.99 - not bad for good airport food.

      1. re: cycloneillini

        Sounds like a banh mi. It's a Vietnamese restaurant staple, usually absurdly cheap.

      2. Turkey, avocado, thinly sliced cucumber, tomato, thinly sliced red onion, leaf of lettuce, on whole wheat.

        1. When it comes to sandwiches, I can't come up with one favorite. If it's hot, then a grilled cheese with ham or bacon. If it's cold, then turkey, with mayo, iceburg lettuce, & thinly sliced tomato on white, it it's a salad type, I love chicken, egg, and tuna all pretty equally.

          1. Hummus, roasted red peppers, avacado, goat cheese on homemade bread.
