    Ooh, Sandwich Crafting:)

    You need Buttered Bread, with Chicken, Lettuce, Cheese(sliced or grated), a light sprinkling of salt, Covered in Tomato Sauce(AKA Ketchup)

    Happy eating!

    I always find toasting the bread is much better. You need meat and chees and lettuce and tomato and condiments and salt and pepper and then it's lovely

    Okay, at this vegetarian restaurant I ate at when I was in Vancouver, they served the best sandwich in the world- toasted whole-grain bread (club-style, 3 or 4 layers), peanut butter, raisins, and sliced pear. Mmmmmmmmm

    you can virtually put anything on a sandwich - I did some voluntary work for a wildlife trust and the vegetarian team leader always used to turn up with scooby-doo type snacks with layers of cheese,salad,veggies,sultanas and nuts

    but my favourite to make is tuna mixed with sweetcorn,mayonaisse,lemon juice,black pepper and slices of cucumber on thickly sliced wholmeal with sesame seeds

    First off you poor deprived sandwich amatuers bread is not an ingredient of the "PERFECT SANDWICH". I shall enlighten you all:

    A large flaky croissant split in half.
    Honey smoked turkey meat
    honey mustard
    havartti cheese

    place the bottom piece of the croissant down, add meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato, then spread honey mustard on the bottom of the top piece, put the top piece over the stack of heaven and eat.

    one of the best sandwiches is good bread, mayo, provolone cheese, and avacado sooo good its really good with turkey to if you eat meat and on a crossant is even better yum!!! now i want one
  12. experiment with spreads other than butter....hummus, tomato paste, chilli sauce, avocado, relish, salsa, dips - anything spreadable can take the place of butter and add interesting and delicious flavourage.

    try diffrent kinds of lettuce too - things like rocket and spinach

    and vinagrette or something weird like lime or lemon juice can add nice flavour to the humble sandwich.

    It's all about variety - cruise you fridge for inspiration and make something that sounds odd but is yum.

    My lunch today is:
    a piece of grainy brown bread, with avocado spread on it, then roasted red peppers, rocket, olives and slices of dried apricot. I then toasted another slice of bread, buttered one side with tomato paste and grilled some vegetarian blue cheese on top. I put that face down on top of the first piece of bread. I then put garlic hummus on the plain side of the toasted bread, topped that with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, grilled zuchinni, fresh tomato and some lettuce and put another piece of avocado bread on top to seal the thing off.

    it's such a good sandwich - i'm out all day today so it's really filiing as well, and yes. Yum.

    Chutney is always good in a sarnie :)
  14. Marble Rye bread, with swiss, turkey and apple slices, grilled until everything is all nice and melty.....mmmmm......
  15. While i was at the big green gathering this year, me and my friend Ros just couldnt be arsed to leave the site to buy in some decent food so we managed to live off what we had saved from the last fest we were at which was a loaf of bread, a jar of marmite and half a dozen green apples. We pretty much managed to survive on marmite and sliced apple sandwhiches for the whole time we were there.

    A propper sandwhich though, has got to be a basic fryed egg and thick smoked bacon, prefferably on a bagel, with a good load of tomato sauce - propper job.

    Try making your favorite sandwich as a panini.

    Put a cast iron skillet on the stove burner and turn it on med high. Take a second skillet of similar size, clean the bottom good with some vegetable oil on a cloth, and put it over another burner upside down, also on med high.

    Make sandwich. Pour a little extra virgin olive oil in skillet #1, swirl around, and drop in the sandwich. Drizzle a little oil on top of sandwich, turn skillet #2 over and press lightly on top of sandwich, leave until sandwich is lightly toasted and any cheese is melted. As for the olive oil, use the good stuff as it's more for taste than just to prevent sticking.

    If you have an herb garden (no, not THAT kind of herb), pick a couple of sprigs of this or that to put in the sandwich. Makes a big difference.
  17. oh i like sammiches... i get a steak roll and put on better and garlic and then throw that into the toaster and then get some honeyed ham and make a layer of that followed by some pepperjack cheese and then a layer of roast beef and then a layer of mozzeralla and then a layer of more honey ham then then put just the meat and cheese in the microwave for like 20 seconds and then put some hienz 57 sause on the bread and then add your meat and cheese and toss i some hotsauce... it makes a damn good sammich
