Pizza Hut just got subs, and I tried out their Honey BBQ subs. Oh..my…god. Subs count as sandwiches, right? Long sandwiches? I guess if I had to pick out a specific sandwich…Lots of roast beef, swiss cheese, and mayonnaise.

Subway has this sammach called the Subway Melt. Basically, it's sliced ham and turkey, with bacon. I get it toasted so that the cheese melts and the bacon starts to fry up again (since Subway bacon is kinda nasty otherwise) and then load up the toppings.

I tried making this at home with REAL bacon and higher-quality meats… and was in heaven.

… and now I want Subway.

roast beef from togo's

and then my personal favorite, what I call a steak-wich.
it's basically what is sounds like, a piece of steak i usually use new york steak, wedged between two slices of bread. And then if i feel like cooking some more, i'll throw in some mushrooms on top with cheese.

my friend thinks it's a waste of steak. the only con i can think of is when you bite into a tendon, and then you can't really let go of the sandwich because you'd reveal the half chewed food, but then you need to find a way to bite through that tendon.

Bologna is the way to go. Back in 9th grade, I got bologna, provolone, lettuce and mustard on a roll from the school deli. Pretty amazing, but now I realize it needs more meat. Maybe…ham? … Ham…nice.

If asked for my favorite sandwiches…it would be either Wendy's Montery Ranch Chicken Sandwich, or McDonald's Arch Deluxe, neither of which have been seen for years. Sadly. :(

If you want to know how I'd make my perfect sandwich? Easy.

Start with a sesame seed bun (Or seeded bun, whatever you can get your hands on).

Open the bun and place on a baking pan. On the upside of each half (Should be the insides where the sandwich goes. If not, for shame!) rub a little butter and add a pinch of garlic powder. Let it cook in the oven until the butter melts and the bread is as soft or toasty as you desire.

Once the buns are done, place on a plate. On the bottom, spread a thin layer of mayo, and sprinkle on a bit of cheddar cheese (sharp, mild, or mixed).

On top of the layer of cheese, apply one boneless chicken patty fillet (grilled or breaded and fried, all preference).

Lay on one slice of baby swiss cheese.

Place one medium-thick slice of ham on top of this, preferably after warming on a skillet (Perhaps the one you used to make the fried patty if you went for that one).

Apply one slice of meunster cheese.

Heat up one to two thin slices of roast beef, layer on top of the meunster cheese.

On the top of half of the bun, spread a thin layer of honey mustard dressing, and place on top of the sandwich.

Voila. Heaven out of the kitchen.

Yeah, it's a lot to eat, but for anything I can make at home the taste can't be beat. :D

It's not a veggie sandwich though. For those like me that need some greens too, salads on the side work wonders.

You CANNOT buy a good sandwich… I'm sorry, it's lazy eating and shouldn't be done.

You need fresh Sourdough bread, nice soft New Zealand butter(because dairy from anywhere else is just crap) some roast pork WITH crackling, some slow roasted tomatoes, gherkins, cucumber, lettuce, a nice bit of soft white cheese (I like whitestone farmhouse myself) and a really good quality hot english mustard. Then you also need a nice tasty pilsner to wash it down with… I think i need to go and change my pants now.

I'm shocked at how many people listed fast food sandwiches…

Once a month, my family has a special sandwich night…we go to the grocery store, and buy the best quality sandwich fixings. I like getting ultra-thin sliced hard salami from the deli counter, thick-sliced swiss, and dark rye bread from the bakery. I combine them all with slices of tomatoes, lettuce, mayonaise, pepper, and a bit of sea salt…it's absolutely delicious. And if it's right after thanksgiving, replace the salami with leftover turkey…divine.

I'm completely with you there Disgruntled… BUYING a ready made sandwich is like making a fucking sprite comic or something. A true sandwich should be ART, ART that you can eat, diguest, and then poop out beautifully later! Even the Poop from a great sandwich is ART!

There's this cafe that makes good TLT&A'a (Tempeh, Letuce, Tomato and Avocado.) Really good, unfortuately I can't afford to eat 'em every day. They also make home-made Oreos which are sort of sandwiches in a very loose sense.

Ice cream sandwich.

Nah. That's actually 2nd place.

1st place goes to a hot open-faced turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes, gravy, and preferably dressing(stuffing). Some restaurants call it a turkey manhattan. I order it pretty much any time I see it on a menu. Unfortunately, it can be really screwed up if they use instant mashed potatoes, pressed turkey, or dry turkey. – I rarely eat sandwiches because I've pretty much sworn off all bread and most starch (especially potatoes). But for a treat, that one is a winner, and an absolutely deadly bread+potato double whammy.

Man… where I come from supposedly double starches is a huge nono… but all I'm gonna say is that people are missing out.

A leftover lasagne sandwich is also really good!

*tries very hard to keep a Resident Evil joke out of this thread…

Well, the Doc says they're bad for me. Add to that the other stuff in the sandwich and I'm looking at a BG score of 400+ (and then I start to feel strangely cold)…

I also used to love sandwiches made with Thanksgiving leftovers….

Just about anything heavy with vegetables + veggie patty, with some pepper and vinegar.

Um.. er…

How about we freeze the perfect sandwich so that in the far future people will always know what one looked like before they started eating food pills. :)

Oh god!
What are you people talking about???? o_O

We all know what the perfect sandwich (or “sanga” ) is, Men At Work taught the world what it was back in the 80's:

A Vegemite sandwich.

Each of you should have that as your number one fave! Your voices should be united, speaking as one of its glories!

All praise the Vegemite sandwich!

I've had vegemite. I spent about a month in Perth while I was in the marines, and the girl I ended up staying with for a while during my stay (heh, I really should have married that gal, she was CRAZY) fed it to me one day.

Wasn't BAD, per se… I mean, poi is worse tasting and I ate that occasionally while
stationed in Hawaii. Just really wasn't my thing.

And I listed a fast-food sandwich simply because I do NOT have access to any sort of fridge, cooking area, or any sort of food preparation area at my place of employment at *ALL*. We have a microwave (that cooks popcorn 50% of the time, reheats coffee 45% of the time, and everything else 5% of the time) and a coffee machine, that's it.

When I'm at home, I'll take about 3 steak-ums and start to fry them up until they're easy to break apart (if the pan's hot enough, that only takes a min or less). Then I'll slice um up, drop some onion and green pepper in there, drizzle some shredded provolone and mozzarella cheese on top, let everything cook together for a while… drop the mass on a hoagie bun and drop some A-1 on it.

You CANNOT buy a good sandwich… I'm sorry, it's lazy eating and shouldn't be done.

AGREED!! and plus, with fast food, they tend to go with the lowest quality in the food sometimes to save up on cost, or it's not quite fresh at all and were pre-frozen, etc.

I make my own sandwiches, and I also have an sandwich press machine for when I want to heat my sandwiches and melt the cheese inside.

I have like a dozen favorite combination for my sandwiches.

I change up the meats and the different varying cheeses, but my method is always the same. I also tend to put in different meats together in the sandwich at times to give it more flavor and texture.

My method:

place cheese of your choice on top of the bottom bread. and put it in the sandwich press, but don't close the press yet, and just keep on building the sandwich there on it.

and when you start building the sandwich… go in this order– Meat, cheese, meat, cheese, and then meat. sometimes add the last cheese next.

put the other bread slice on top, and then press down using the sandwich press.

My favorite single combination, though would have to be this…

Chicken, turkey, and bacon which is layered between two types of cheese–provolone and Swiss cheese. sometimes I use montery jack cheese instead of Swiss to give it a little bit of tang.

When the cheese is melted in the sandwich, it makes for a really perfect sandwich that cannot be beat at all. :)

Vegemite! You people have got it all wrong… MARMITE is where it's at. Far superior to Vegemite in every way imaginable, not to make lite of the fact that vegemite is made by Kraft which is an evil corporation, where as Sanitarium is comparibly squeeky clean… oh and Marmaite tastes 3 times better! at least
