What's your favourite sandwich?

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by musings85, Feb 18, 2011.

  1. Since I have started getting more enthusiastic about cooking and attempting new dishes I seem to have forgotten about the humble art of crafting a great sarnie.
    One of my favourites was to fry up some thinly sliced steak and onions whilst a baguette was baking in the oven. Just before baguette was ready I 'buttered' it with generous helpings of red onion marmalade. Then the contents of the frying pan (including those lovely juices from the steak) was poured into the baguette and a good stilton or blue cheese crumbled over the top before going back in the oven for a few minutes. Served up with salad and chips. Gorgeous.
    Over to you guys......

    Fried egg (runny yolk), bacon and brown sauce on white bread.
    Mettwurst/Teewurst on sourdough.
    Stuffing sandwiches (a must for Boxing Day)
    Salami on Pumpernickel.
    Banana, bacon and peanut butter (in a Breville toastie)
    Curried mince (in a toastie)


    Cheese on toast!!![​IMG]...with pickle!


     
  4. I'm afraid its the cheese and pickle ones made by a well-known sandwich chain. Its the pickle that does it for me. Their falafel ones are good too.

    Sounds very nice, muse. I'm glad you had the salad separately, I loathe the ubiquitous ready-made sandwiches with lettuce in them, making the bread soggy. Whatever people see in the BLT completely eludes me.
    I don't know I have a specific favourite, it depends on the mood I'm in. Sometime a bacon sandwich hits the spot, other times cheese and tomato or pickled onion works a treat but I'm particularly partial to fried liver sandwiches.
     
  7. Sounds divine!
    Another one of my favourites is the simple leftover roast turkey with lashings of home-made apple sauce on a floury white bap.
     
  8. Not really a fan of cold sandwiches (worst sandwich would be egg mayo [​IMG])
    Salmon and dill sauce is nice that's if you can even buy dill sauce anymore. Boo to Tescos.
     
  9. Chicken and avocado with aioli.
    A steak sandwich with the lot, (fried onion, bacon, egg, steak, beetroot, letuce, tomato, cheese, chilli sauce)
    Cream cheese, tomato and mint
    Cream cheese, tomato and spring onion.
    Cheese tomato and spring onion.
    Roast beef, horseradish and lettuce.
     
  10. Egg with salad cream not mayo
    Roast turkey, stuffing, bread sauce and cranberry sauce
    Rare roast beef.horseradish and watercress
    Chicken and avocado
    Bacon and egg ( egg must be runny and drip off your chin)
    Marmalade

    My favourite just-me dinner is half a good ciabatta, sliced lengthwise, spread with fresh pesto and toasted lightly in the oven, then jam packed with griddled mushrooms, peppers and baby plum tomatoes, topped with goats' cheese and returned to the oven until the cheese bubbles. Then I jam on the top of the bread, hack it into slices and serve it with a mixed leaf salad. It is ridiculous how much I enjoy this sandwich! Sometimes I substitute brie or feta, depending on the contents of my fridge.
     
  15. Cheese, then salted peanuts, sultanas and celery mixed with mayo (on granary bread)

    Si, that's the second thread you've won in as many days, in my eyes.
    I'm 'aving that for lunch tomozza!
    Anyone who makes a generous sandwich is a fine person all round, as far as I'm concerned

    Wow! Unconventional, but taking no prisoners either. I like it.

    Cheese & onion for me.
     
  19. Is very nice and I can't take credit for the combination as it belongs to a sandwich shop where I used to live!

    If you serve this sarnie topless (oo-er...what I meant was without the top half of the bread), it is lighter and in our house is caled ciabatta pizza. It is best with a good chevre, but I often use those little Capricorn goats' cheeses as I like the fact that one of their goats has the same name as my grannie. And what other reason do you need for your selection of cheese?
    Do report back, nick and tell me how good your sandwich was (am I sounding cocky?)
    Dammit, I wish I had some goats cheese and ciabatta in the house now, you've fair put me in the mood for it.
