Your Ultimate Sandwich

Hi all, I'm new here -- I've been lurking for some time and I finally decided to get myself registered!

So all that aside, I was curious what your ultimate sandwich is? Don't skimp on details!

I'll start:

Thinly-sliced roasted turkey and pistachio mortadella with extra hole-y Swiss and/or provolone, arugula, sliced boiled egg and pesto on toasted crusty sourdough.

  1. This will be my first post too! I've been a lurker as well.

    Rye bread lightly toasted, spread with creamcheese that has been mixed with dill, then thinly-sliced lox, easy on the red onion, top it off with thin slices of tomato.

    1. Hi there, welcome!

      Oh, that's easy. A Monte Cristo. There are a million recipes, and I've yet to try making a version I can eat with my multiple digestive issues. Maybe the third year of restrictions is the charm and I'll work it out this summer?

      In the meantime, I can be appeased with a (gluten-free) baguette lightly toasted and smeared with grainy mustard and fresh mayo, then filled with roast chicken, thick tomato slices, avocado, and crispy bacon.

      1. Freshly baked sourdough Ciabatta, spread with creamed horse radish, paper thin slices of prime rib, avocado, provolone, thin slice of red onion and fresh tomato.

          Thanks for the welcome, megjp! And welcome to you too, wildcat :)

          Oh man, those sandwiches all sound delicious!! I used to hate pickles, runny eggs and mustard when I was a kid. I have since seen the light and I'm excited to try a bunch of different sandwich combos when I'm back in the States (I'm living in Malaysia - on Borneo - so it is difficult to get some sandwich fixings. Better for now anyway since I've changed my diet a bit in the name of health. Bah!).

          Cold sandwich, thick slices of red tomatoe, red onion, herbed goat cheese and lox on marble rye.

          Warm sandwich, a black bean or veggie burger topped with avocado, sprouts and swiss cheese.

              Oh yeah, a good sandwich usually involves tomatoes! I had a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich on toasted rye for breakfast this morning.

                Sounds delicious, HillJ. Unfortunately, a good tomato is hard to come by where I'm living now. The only satisfying ones I can get are cherry tomatoes.

                1. re: NoodleQueen

                  A few cherry tomtoes works for me in a sandwich! I envy your travel adventure!

                Oh Uncle Bob, I knew I could count on you for this. I'd add a few slices of bacon to that if I felt like frying it, but yup, nothin' like a tomato sammich in the summertime.

                  When I drive to Florida in Oct, I am buying Dukes Mayo! I keep reading about it and am determined to find it somewhere between home and Disney.


                  1. re: Jerseygirl111

                    In North & South Carolina, Georgia and Northern Florida you should have no problem finding it....
                    Recommend you locate it on the way down...pick it up on the way back.


                    1. re: Uncle Bob

                      Is it refrigerated or shelf stable till opened? Do you think I have to go to a grocery store or will they have it at Walmart?

                      Thanks for your help!


                      1. re: Jerseygirl111

                        'Tis. shelf stable till opened. ~ However, I was thinking maybe it may not be a good idea to have/leave it in a hot car for an extended period of time. ~ Walmart here doesn't carry it....I would think that in South Carolina it would be everywhere...even Walmart. ~ Maybe a little research before leaving would be in order.. so you could get off, make your purchase, and get back on without it costing you too much time. Then again, you'll need a 'Pit Stop' or two along the way! ~~~ Ahmmmmm... just realized you said "in October" heat prolly want be a big issue. ~~ just play it by ear. ~~ Do have fun & enjoy!!

                        1. re: Jerseygirl111

                          They definitely have it in all Walmarts in North Carolina. I have even found them in the Dollar Tree and different convenience stores here in NC.

                      Just add a few strips of crispy bacon
