What's In Your Sandwich??
What are some great combinations that you've come up with to make a really good sandwich?
Do you make a special mayo or chutney to bring out the flavor?
Perhaps you make a wonderful open faced grilled veggie sandwich topped with a wonderful cheese.
Please share with us.
Good in summer: mix any mayonnaise half-and-half with salsa and apply it to deli roast beef in a sandwich. Or, mix a cup of mayonnaise with 2-3 tablespoons of tahini and season it with lemon juice, garlic, MINT (do not omit), and a little hot red pepper---good with cold chicken on a sandwich.
This won't change the world, but this is what I've doing lately.
Take one thick slice of bread (either Brioche or Texas Toast type of bread).
Slather on the PB, freshly ground if possible.
Sprinkle on a good amount of Panko, so that it covers the PB.
Then take a creme brulee torch and light scorch the Panko, so you have a nice crunchy crust on top with a bit of charred bite to it.
Then, sprinkle on a bit of Sea Salt, and serve open-faced and enjoy.
This is my concoction for a jazzed up tuna sammy:
Make a sauce by mixing the following -
1 cup sour cream
diced green bell pepper, minced onion, chopped pimiento, a couple tablespoons wine vinegar, a little sugar & a little salt & some fresh ground black pepper
Finely shred some cabbage, about 3 or so cups
Grill some pineapple slices, either fresh or canned on the stove or the grill
Slice some tomatoes, very thin
Drain a can of white tuna (9 oz) & fold in the cabbage & tuna into the sour cream sauce.
Butter one slice of bread & slather the tuna/cabbage mixture on the other side. Top with the grilled pineapple, tomato slices & a thin slice or two of your favorite cheese (I use cheddar). Broil in oven or just top with a buttered slice of bread & brown in a skillet or grill pan.
You could come up with a mayo sauce of some sort instead of the sour cream..
Some of my favorites lately:
Roasted beets (sliced) on multigrain with goat cheese. Extra good if you leave it open-faced and throw it under the broiler or in the toaster until the cheese gets just a bit brown. Top with a drizzle of honey and freshly cracked black pepper.
Egg salad with arugula and tomato on a baguette or sesame bagel.
Grilled keilbasa and mustard on rye. Great hot off the grill. Almost as amazing cold or room temp.
CeeBee, roasted beet sandwich sounds heavenly, got my grocery list ready to shop for all these great recipes...thanks so much for sharing. Seems like the simple combination of ingredients always turn out so good..just have to be imaginative & that is something the chowhounds are gifted at!
