Getting to Know Each Other - April 2016

Recommended Posts

Nope, I'm pretty boring when it comes to sandwiches. Super picky about fresh ingredients, though. Bakery bread, fresh deli cuts, etc. Thus I'm picky about where I shop, because I make my way around the outside of a supermarket, hitting all the counters (because we don't have an actual deli and the bakeries are mostly just Italian bread and pizza dough).

 

Wish we had a Wegmans!

I don't eat a lot of bread now, but these two sandwiches were/are my fallbacks, since I doubt I have "unique" ones.

 

- Peanut butter + honey + banana

- Grilled cheeses/melts with whatever we find in the fridge. From leftover bbq meats to tomatoes with whatever cheese we have.... Bacon, egg, and cheese melts are delicious.

Question for April 21st: Do you make interesting sandwiches that are special or unique to your family, and if so, can you share the recipe?

mmmmmmmm...sandwiches...

 

We make Thanksgiving sandwiches. Not sure that those are special, though.

Actually, I thought of one. Grilled cheese made with sourdough bread and either sharp cheddar or swiss.

Grilled cheese made of interesting combinations of cheeses with actual names created by authentic cheese-making processes. Yessss.

There's a Grilled cheese vendor that shows up at the Extreme Beer Fest every year, they make a Grilled Cheese they call The Green Muenster (an allusion to the Boston Red Sox' home field, Fenway Park, whose left field wall, painted green, is referred to as The Green Monster).  The sandwich is Muenster, Guacamole, and Bacon, on white, cooked in a panini press.  It's delicious.

Nothing that special, just "all the cheese" grilled cheeses. A typical one might include shredded Mexican four cheese, thick slices of Muenster and sharp cheddar, and deli slices of provolone and American. Usually toasted in the oven rather than 'grilled', on a nice thick piece of bread.

The only thing that comes to mind as a family specialty is meatloaf sandwiches with the family meatloaf recipe.

Personally, I've got a few favourites.

Salami, pickles and cream cheese.

The nachwich - introduced to me by a friend, it's tortilla chips, chilli beans, cheese, salsa and sour cream between two slices of bread and toasted in a sandwich press.

I've been experimenting with variations on the McRib after I acquired a box of the patties, and my favourite so far is the Teriyaki McRib - a grilled pork riblet patty basted with teriyaki sauce, bean sprouts, shredded cabbage and Kewpie roasted sesame dressing.

I'm sure there was something else I was going to mention, but it escapes me right now...

I regret that I seem to have been caught out. We do sandwiches, but they're hardly unique.

No, no unique sandwiches.

 

I make a mean turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich, but I don't think that's particularly unique.  Just delicious.

 

I do make fish tacos.  Are tacos classified as sandwiches?  Mahi-mahi, nectarine avocado salsa . . . yeah, I gotta make some now.

Ooh, a new philosophical question!

 

Though apparently it's only new to me:

  • A court in Boston determined that as a matter of law a sandwich normally includes at least two slices of bread and therefore tacos et al. were not "sandwiches". (Clearly the judge was not a Scandinavian.)
  • In the UK or Australia, sandwiches are made only with bread sliced from a loaf. A "sandwich" made by slicing open a loaf is a "roll". (From the same Wikipedia link.) In the US, it's fairly clear that most people would consider hoagies/heroes/subs/etc. to be "sandwiches".

Still unexamined (AFAICT) is whether unleavened bread (flatbread, flour tortillas, whatever) counts as "bread" for the purpose of this question.

I don't eat sandwiches very often, but when I do, my favorite is peanut butter on oatmeal bread.

      Greetings forum things! Once again, I, the Griffin of Grumpiness snag the tattered robe of the Quisitor in my beak for this the ninth month of Old Rome's calendar and also the month all Turkeys Dread!

      This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square.
       
      He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.
