Sandwich Inspiration - what was your last "sammy"?

Just about anything can be made into a sandwich - bread may or may not be an option since everyone seems to be dodging carbs. For right now all I can say is "Carbs be dammed", at least for this one delicious sandwich, which I am so craving right now.

I had a fried egg in olive oil (smashed garlic added in the oil) , topped off with fresh roasted asparagus on a piece of bruschetta the other day & was wondering what you are calling a "Sammy".

Maybe you partake of some "exotic" combination that only you eat. That's OK, it's all good, so share with us.

PS....wraps, rolls & any other thing is applicable.

  1. King's Hawaiian Bread now makes a pre-sliced loaf. So, I had to get that. And then my dad brought over some tomatoes fresh from his garden. And I was at Buffalo Wild Wings the other night, had salt and vinegar fries, learned they sell the S&V powder, bought some ... Salt and vinegar, mayo, tomato sandwich for lunch today, barbecue chips and kosher dill pickles on the side. Was GLORIOUS!

      I've been dying to try the s&v. I'm a sucker for the chips. I'm glad to see its worth it. What else do you do with it?

    2. The last sandwich i made was the other day for lunch:
      Trader Joes veggie masala burger
      Slice of American cheese
      Sliced cucumber
      Touch of mayo
      Teaspoon or so of Indian mint chutney
      Touch of Indian tomato chilli sauce
      All on toasted wheat sandwich bread

      1. Sliced tomatoes
        Duke's mayo
        White toast
        Cut from corner to corner

        1. I tried one today that I'd been hearing about on NPR for a couple of weeks -- Diane's Dad's Summer Sandwich -- it's now won their Taste of Summer contest --

          The combination of cheddar cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and chunky peanut butter was too weird to resist, especially with the article/radio piece insisting that the layering was crucial to achieving the taste.

          I can't say I loved it....but it does have a very interesting flavor that I just might try again tomorrow.

            I tried it and liked it and I would make it again. I used cranberry nut yeast bread lightly toasted. I loved the crunch of the cucumber. Tomato and cheese are always a great combination for me. Thanks it was especially fun since I had all the ingredients.

            1. re: mscoffee1

              that's exactly why I tried it -- I already had all the ingredients, so why not?

            2. re: sunshine842

              I had to try this as well. I don't get the appeal. It wasn't bad by any means but certainly not something I would ever make again. I can think of better ways to use an amazing summer tomato.

              If I want an obscure sandwich, I go with vegemite, cheddar, peanut butter and romaine. Sometimes a dill pickle is an added bonus.

              1. re: ChervilGeorge

                me, too -- it's okay -- but I tried it a couple of times and still don't love it.

                I'll make a BLT the next time I have a really great tomato.

            3. Prochuitto, Hot Soprasata, imported provolone, roasted red peppers, a scant piece of romaine lettuce, drizzled with fruity EVOO on a pressed toasted ciabatta roll and a glass of red, yum!
