Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

Gotta be bacon and a fried egg with lashings of tomato ketchup on a soft bap. Mmmmmmm. Maybe add a circle of black pudding into the mix.

Failing that, the simple prawn, marie rose and pepper works a charm.

Strip steak quick-fried with mixed bell peppers and onion, jack cheese all wrapped tightly in a large piece of iceberg.
Oooh, sounds yummy! One thing though - where are you finding jack cheese here? Please share (the info)!

I got used to the egg or gherkin, but when I hit a slice of kiwi in a cold-cut sandwich---that was the limit.
I think I'd have more problems with the kiwi + bread combination than the kiwi + cold cuts.

The thing that bugs me more about sandwiches here is not the random egg or single very thin gherkin but the prevalence of salty butter on everything, even on a salami sandwich. What's with that?

Kiwi? What the....?

As in this kiwi? Sorry I know I am being thick here.

Well, summerrain... I've met a few of the other kind of "Kiwis" I wouldn't mine experiencing as a sandwich but that discussion is for another time.



Regarding the OP though, my favorite sandwich was one we used to get at Arby's is their Pecan Chicken Salad. Sooo yummy! It is (was?) available as either a wrap or a sandwich, both are good.

Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

@ Peg A - you can find pepper cheese in good delis/globus cheese counter. Not real Jack though. Failing that grab a few slices of gouda, press some pestle-and-motar-crushed dried chillis into it, and place on plate in fridge to dry out for a couple days. Pepper Jack Almost.

Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

Hej Nils!

Try the following Mediterranean Sandwich I made one time for a party:

- Use little sandwich bread (like hotdog ones but smaller)
- Make a Chickpeas purée (boiled chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper, mash all together in a mixer)
- Fry chopped onions, add mined meat, salt and cinnamon and fry all some 15 minutes
- Use chickpeas purée on the bread first, add the minced meat then use chopped parsley on the top

Delicious!

Monte Cristo:




White bread with ham, turkey, bacon and cheese. Dip it in egg and fry it like French Toast. Sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar and serve with jam or maple syrup.

Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

Loved those on road trips in the US. Any hotel or roadside diner would serve a Monte Cristo...or a Reuben...or a French Dip. Now those are sandwiches!

For any of you who have spent time in Montreal...the smoked meat piled high is a thing of beauty!

Fried eggs, gherkins...I thought the Earl of Sandwich left Britain to make REAL sandwiches in North America

Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

I was going to make a joke about a sandwich with no meat, but will refrain...In Technopark, where I had my office, the cafeteria made some REALLY good vegetarian sandwiches.

And next to it, at the bar, they make great roast beef sandwiches, and lax sandwiches. Best I have had in "Der Schwweiz" and I am a sandwich lover in California. Oops..not sure if what I eat are sandwiches, according to those funny people who live on those islands west of France...

Re: In search for the perfect sandwich

Here's my favourite.

1: Put prebaked Cereal baguettes from coop in the oven and heat them, till they start getting crusty
2: Slice it open vertically in the full length
3: Apply a layer of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, add cocktail sauce.
4: Finish it off with a few slices of bacon and cheese, and eat it, while it is hot

Doc.
