Favorite cold weather sandwich?

What sandwich warms the soul when the weather turns a bit chilly?

A Hot Brown?

Open-faced turkey with gravy and dressing?

Patty melt?

Meatball sub?

Grilled cheese?

Something else?

Lets hear it.

  1. Grilled cheese w/ tomato soup or bisque.

    Or do sausage and peppers on a roll count?

      Of course it counts. Why wouldn't it.

        I dunno it's not very "sandwichy". But, I love it!

        1. re: juliejulez

          Another vote for sausages and peppers on a roll, although I associate s&p's with summer and Italian feasts. And, I would like some onions and mushrooms with mine too, please.

          Last night, after reading this thread, the grilled cheese gods beckoned me in to the kitchen. I ended up making a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich with fresh french fries and ketchup. It was a fabulous treat.

      2. Grilled cheese with turkey and pesto griddled in just too much butter.

        I now depart this thread to look up this mysterious hot brown.
        Edit - oh my gorsch. Now I needs bacon and mornay sauce.

              I just discovered the Mexican version, cubano Mexicano. A local bakery serves theirs on bollilo bread with Swiss, ham, taco al pastor meat, birria stew, avocado, onions, lettuce, pickled jalapenos, mustard and crema. It's all held together with a layer of refried beans which acts as a kind of grout to hold the whole obscene mess together. The thing weighs about two pounds.

                wow! sounds fabulous, messy... fabulously messy!

                1. re: jujuthomas

                  Actually, the refried beans holds everything in place. It's just a ridiculous amount of sandwich. Their torta ahogada is much messier. Reminds me of a french dip sandwich, except replace the jus with a rich chili sauce. A real knife-and-fork sandwich although, during Guadalajara soccer matches, they apparently eat these with their hands.
