What's your favorite sandwich?

My everyday go-to is thinly sliced ham and gruyere with tomatoes on toasted rye, or a club. My indulgence is the Monte Cristo...I have itabout once a year and it's kind of gross but also great.

What's your fave? Peruse this list to jog your memory of sandwices past.

The sandwich chain Blimpie makes a sub called "Blimpie's Best". It's a delicious mix of Italian ham, salami, cappacola, prosciuttini, provolone cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onion, vinegar/oil and oregano. I get it with sweet peppers on it. To die for!

Sadly, the stores are disappearing - only 2 left in Brooklyn. Subway does not compare.

Primo Turkey Schwartzie.

by Typing fatreply 1404/07/2013

I used to like banana, peanut butter & honey - but too fattening now.

Good quality ham is a must, with sliced cheese (Norwegian Jarlsberg is good) and tomato and a smear of mayo.

I am currently on a roast tomato and avocado kick - blame Gwynnie, her avocado on toast recipe got me going ... I roast plum tomatoes for 45 minutes with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Moroccan harissa paste - gives them a terrific kick.

Subway is gross now, but in the 90s they offered a sandwich called the pizza sub: pepperoni and other basic pizza toppings with a tomato sauce on your choice of bread. It was amazing. Because I loved it, of course it was discontinued.

by Typing fatreply 2204/07/2013

A man sandwich, of course.

by Typing fatreply 2304/07/2013

I remember the pizza subs.

They were good at Subway.

by Typing fatreply 2404/07/2013

ham, brie, tomato - toasted

by Typing fatreply 2504/07/2013

To me almost all the Subway sandwichs taste the same except for the meatball. All their cold cuts taste the same. Their cheese is pure plastic and their breads all taste the same no matter which one I pick and that might not be bad if they didn't all suck. Just a few years back they used to have the footlong (and they were a foot long in those days) on sale for 3 bucks. Now 5 bucks is the sale and it's not worth it.

I miss Blimpies. They had real hero bread, real cold cuts and real cheese.

by Typing fatreply 2604/07/2013


by Typing fatreply 2704/07/2013

Subway sandwiches are like eating cold cardboard.

It skeeves me out when they peel off luncheon meat that has been sitting there pre-sliced for god knows how long.

Blimpies Best

The first time I had one was in Georgetown, where I had just arrived via turnip truck to begin my internship. Having never been exposed to such exotica in the sticks---I was struck dumb by the Eye talian delight!

Gyros, my favorite weekend food

by Typing fatreply 3104/07/2013

I am a sandwich aficionado and expert sandwich maker so it's hard to pick one as my ultimate favorite. But if you made me prepare one sandwich, to grade me on, it would probably be proscuitto with provolone, mayo, romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion and cornichons on a crusty French baguette.


by Typing fatreply 3204/07/2013

Me in the middle....

by Typing fatreply 3304/07/2013

I like Monte Cristo sandwiches, too.

I have been loving pretzel buns since they started being offered a few years back but have had to limit them (damn they are high calorie and fattening!)

I am as surprised that anyone would eat at Subway as I am that they would eat at McDonald's.

And Subway is also like Jimmy John's for me - the whole why-would-you-pay-to-eat-shit-you-can-make-at-home category of fast food.

by Typing fatreply 3404/07/2013

Fresh mozzarella and prosciutto with roasted red peppers, red onions and balsamic vinaigrette on a baguette.

Also a big fan of croques madames and monsieurs, grilled swiss and tomato, BLTs and lobster rolls.

R36 offers nothing but a stale little fart of a personality. Fie, cunt.

Lately I like mortadella, roasted artichoke, chopped olive, onion and provolone on a roll, baked a little, a little olive oil on the bread.

by Typing fatreply 3804/07/2013

I don't eat sandwiches – they are déclassé.

Only the sans-culottes eat them.

Grilled cheese: longhorn cheese and sautéed green tomatoes and onions inside of good quality whole wheat (Trader Joe's usually), made with real butter.

by Typing fatreply 4804/07/2013

R48 What else would you use but real butter?

by Typing fatreply 4904/08/2013

Pastrami on rye, like a half pound heaped on good seeded rye with sour pickles on the side and a Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray tonic. Must be made at a real jewish deli, preferably Orchard Street.


Rare roast beef, javarti cheese, sliced ripe tomato, horseradish mayo spread, on thick slabs of sprouted seven grain bread. Served with a good ale.

by Typing fatreply 5004/08/2013

Puerto Rican tripleta....

[quote]The Tripleta is Puerto Rico's answer to the Cuban sandwich, but we think it is better because it combines chicken, ham and beef. It comes on a slightly sweet roll similar to a French Baguette, slathered with ketchup, mustard and mayo then topped with thin crispy fried potato sticks

by Typing fatreply 5104/08/2013

R51 it is a disgusting sandwich, the ketchup just ruins it.

When in London last year I had afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason's store. I had never had cucumber sandwiches before and they are sublime, and one got seconds ! now I make them myself, you have to cut the cucumber really thin and remove the skin, and remove the crust from the white bread.

Their beef and horseradish was stunning as well.

by Typing fatreply 5504/08/2013

Basic ham/cheese, mayo & mustard on pumpernickel.

Turkey with cranberry sauce can be good, too.

The aforementioned egg salad is always a pretty safe bet.

by Typing fatreply 5604/08/2013

R37 - yes, of course! How could I forget cheesesteak. yum.

by Typing fatreply 5704/08/2013

Falafel with hummus

by Typing fatreply 5804/08/2013

I love to sauté red and yellow peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes in balsamic and put on a great bread.

by Typing fatreply 5904/08/2013

Let's knock it off with the cornichons and raw tomatoes, shall we? Also, the terms "sammich" and "sarnie" can go, ASAP, as well - too cutesy.

My mommy used to prepare peanut butter and bacon sandwiches as a treat. A local deli made cold cut and cheese sandwiches with French(?) dressing (I think it was) instead of mayo, and put cole slaw inside as well. They were To Die For.

by Typing fatreply 6004/08/2013

R60 you don't make the rules. I love tomato on a sandwich.

by Typing fatreply 6104/08/2013

R59 Yes with sauteed sausage on a large roll, that is delicious and reminds me of Italian Days in my old neighborhood. (Outdoor festival with these sandwiches, beer and (hopefully) hot Italian stallions.)

by Typing fatreply 6204/08/2013

Oyster Po'boy.

by Typing fatreply 6304/08/2013

This was my dad's sandwich and I still make it. Peanut butter, mayonnaise and dill pickle. I know it sounds disgusting. I also make peanut butter and walnut sandwiches with butter lettuce.

by Typing fatreply 6404/08/2013

The seafood chain Arthur Treacher's used to have a great sandwich - it was a chicken patty on a bun, with cole slaw piled on top, then some Russian dressing. It was a bit messy, but really tasty.

by Typing fatreply 6504/08/2013

What's wrong with raw tomatoes?

by Typing fatreply 6604/08/2013

Corned Beef Sandwich on Rye

by Typing fatreply 6704/08/2013

R64 Peanut butter and walnut sounds interesting. Are these finely chopped walnuts with creamy peanut butter, or chunky?

I like peanut butter and regular butter together on a saltine cracker, maybe with some jam or honey.

by Typing fatreply 6804/08/2013

How has no one mentioned a fried bologna sandwich?

Or if you're extra fancy, a fried bologna sandwich with a fried egg on top!

by Typing fatreply 6904/08/2013

This sounds really gross, but it's delicious: slice potatoes fairly thinly (about 1/8 inch), fry until cooked and lightly golden, but not super crisp. Put between two slices of heavily buttered really bad white bread (e.g., Wonder) Salt and pepper liberally. Carb (and fat) heaven!

by Typing fatreply 7004/08/2013

turkey on pumpernickel with mild mustard - A nearby deli roasts turkey breasts so I stop in once in a while to grab a sandwich. Processed turkey is disgusting.

by Typing fatreply 7104/08/2013

R70 ... in Britain those are "chip butties" (basically steak fries sandwiches).

by Typing fatreply 7604/08/2013

I have to say, this has been the most inspiring thread ever. I love to try new things and I love to cook for friends. I can't wait to try some of the concoctions/delights you guys described.

I do think the raw tomato,sammie/sammich guy seems out of sorts though. Should we give him a cookie?

by Typing fatreply 7704/08/2013

I love a good tomato sandwich. Sliced tomatoes, bread with mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Heavenly. Grew up in the South and it's so hot in the Summer that we often had salads or sandwiches with vegetables fresh from the garden for dinner A tomato sandwich was always so refreshing.

Also a whole wheat wrap with hummus and vegetables.

by Typing fatreply 7804/08/2013

[R78] The moment I read your first sentence, I said to the friend in my head, this boy's from the south! We love us some tomato sandwiches in the summah don't we?

Kentucky Hot Brown

by Typing fatreply 8604/09/2013

I just googled Kentucky Hot Brown, R86. It's very much like Pittsburgh's Devonshire, which can also be made with crabmeat instead of the turkey. Loved them either way, but they're not so popular anymore.

by Typing fatreply 8704/09/2013

I love a simple ham and cheese on pumpernickel bread (why is this bread so hard to find in supermarkets?), with lettuce, tomatoes and mayo. Maybe a dab of Dijon mustard for a kick.

R78 & 79, tomato sandwiches are widely eaten in the north too.

by Typing fatreply 9404/09/2013

Hey r90 what is Umamicatessen? Is that like Umami burger?

I have heard Langer's has great pastrami but I have never tried it. Langer's is out of the way of everything. The best pastrami I've had in LA is at a little place called Marv's at Whitsett and Magnolia in the valley but Greenblat's ain't nothin to sneeze at either.

Love pastrami on rye with spicy mustard and a dill pickle that snaps so loud it'll burst your ear drum. Sometimes with some slaw on it.

by Typing fatreply 9504/09/2013

Egg salad made with curry powder and chutney mixed in is mighty yummy!

by Typing fatreply 9604/09/2013

Langer's is an easy walk from the Metrorail Red/Purple line.

by Typing fatreply 9704/09/2013

R90 [quote] Langer's is out of the way of everything. The best pastrami I've had in LA is at a little place called Marv's at Whitsett and Magnolia

Out of the way? Unlike Marv's on Magnolia??? What's the heck's around there?

FWIW, you can hop on the Red Line at Noho and get off right at Langer's in 15-25 minutes, which BTW, is about 5 min west of Downtown. There's a reason why even a NY'er like Nora Ephron called Langer's pastrami the best in the country.

Umamicatessen is part of the Umami Burger empire, but mixed in with a kick-ass deli. It's downtown on Broadway near 9th - about a 10 min walk from the Pershing Square Metro Red Line stop. As with Langers, totally safe during the day, slightly dicey at night. Pricier than Langer's, but great.

Why can't you just ask for it now? They still have all the ingredients. Just order their pepperoni sub. The "other basic pizza toppings" you love so much is just their standard veggies. Their tomato sauce is their meatball sauce.
