Make me a sandwich!

As a college kid, I often do not have the best diet, or have the time to make a full meal. I do know how to cook, but I also love sandwiches. My personal favorite is a gourmet grilled cheese of gouda, spinach, sundried tomatoes, and garlic on sourdough bread, dipped in balsamic vinegar. (Yeah I can get classy) But I also get bored. What are some of your favorite sandwiches, and how do you make them?

take a loaf of cuban bread (okay, you can use whatever you have on hand), pile in some smoked ham, some sliced pickles, some provolone, some yellow mustard, and heat the whole mess under pressure.

Sounds good, but pulled pork is usually something you have to go through some work to produce. I believe I've posted my rosemary pulled pork recipe here at some point for those willing to go through the effort of a slow braise.

I don't believe I've ever seen pulled pork in my local megamart type store (though I can't say I've really looked, much less looked at the awesome grocery that stocks things like elk and the smoked haddock I used for the recipe MeiLin suggested). On a completely unrelated note, I'd just like to add for those cooks out there who haven't experienced this: The addition of dried habaneros to food quickly converts dinner in to a chemical weapon Blum 3

It's so simple, but delicious. I love cheese and ketchup sandwiches. Just spread a bit (or a lot) of ketchup on the bread and put whatever kind of cheese you want in between.

I also like grilled peanut butter sandwiches. Made just like grilled cheese, but with peanut butter. Crunchy or creamy works, though the peanuts tend to slide around a bit if you're using crunchy. Don't use too much or it'll melt all over your pan and make a huge mess. I've never tried it with jelly or jam, but that might be really good too. If it doesn't make a mess at least.

Our grocery store (Wegmans) just started making this really really delicious whole grain apple bread. I really enjoy that with turkey, provolone or mozzarella, and a bit of dijon mustard.

I honestly have never tried any of those. I'm very picky about what I eat- no peppers, no peanuts, I don't like deli turkey, just the meat fresh from the bird, no lettuce or ripe tomatoes on sandwiches, just sundried or spinach haha... I'm all about the meat/cheese/bread/condiments combos though.

And I will definitely look into some bread recipes, my mom used to make bread for us all the time a few years ago, but for some reason she stopped... but she's coming to visit soon, eee!!! I'll ask her for some recipes.

Why not look in to making some breads of your own? There's certainly no limitations on what you could make, and I'm sure we'd all love to have your creations to try out. Hell, I've already made Pawpaw bread, and it was excellent (think banana bread with a stronger base flavor).

was peanut butter and chocolate syrup. I would put two slices of bread in the toaster, and as soon as they came out, I would very quickly slather one slice in peanut butter and the other in chocolate syrup. They heat from the toast would make the whole thing a melty mess. It was delicious.

My Sammiches have a protocol that I almost never deviate from. A Protocol in that, that they are always eaten in this particular fashion/time.

I love Italian Dressing/Balsamic Vinegarette and Cheese Sandwhiches. The bread can be variable, but the cheese is always American.

Grilled Cheese.... *Drool*... Two slices American(Cheddar doesn't melt well... :cry:), salt, pepper, lots of garlic powder and cayenne....Always with tomato soup treated similarly spice-wise.

The classic PBJ is dinner/lunch or snack. Always with a glass of milk, if I have it.

PB and Honey, PB and Brown Sugar with/without Bananas....always snacks.

PB and Margarine is another that I love.

I also heart ketchup and american cheese sandwhiches.

Cheez-its and Ketchup also make me happy. 8)

It actually just occurred to me that I had a whole other post on this subject. One summer when I was interning and sharing an apartment with 5 other guys, I ran in to one of the most bizarre culinary requests ever. I had a roommate ask me how to make a sandwich (not anything specific, just a sandwich in general). Turns out he was Vietnamese American and his mon/his sister had done everything for him his entire life (we even had to teach him how to do laundry). Ultimately if I hadn't handed out food from a good number of the meals I'd made, and Lucas (another of my roommates, who actually taught me how to make tortillas) hadn't made quesadillas all the time and given them out I think he would have starved. He still got most of his calories out of vending machines that summer, despite us trying to teach him.

You know, for as much of a culinary snob as I tend to be, the Foreman grill kicks ass. Not only can you compress and heat sandwiches from both sides, but I've never had a better burger than one of my BBQ burgers cooked on a Foreman. That said one of these days I really need to post the recipe for my BBQ burger.

Minus the peanut butter that sounds damned tasty. A real pity you can't indulge in wheat based sandwiches, sounds like someone like myself should work on developing a gluten-free wheat. Of course that would completely ruin the ability of wheat to produce bread; damnit, just can't win.

Raigne's picture

I had to start eating home made bread for a disorder I have. My bread maker has become absolutely indispensable to me, since I started baking fresh loaves a couple of times a week. There's several gluten free recipes in the book that came with it, and I'm sure you could find plenty online.

It's also a lot cheaper than buying bread all the time, so even if I hadn't inherited the bread maker, it would absolutely have paid for itself by now.

Being a widower, with the children grown and off on their own, I make a lot of sandwiches -- but tend to keep them simple; Deli-sliced turkey breast on toasted Rye bread with a dab of mustard or mayo, and a slice of Provolone Cheese, or a thick slab of Sugar-cured or Honey-cured ham with bread-and-butter pickle slices on buttered whole wheat with smoked Gouda cheese... Those are my two favourites. I also make a party sandwich out of a loaf of French Bread, buttered and dusted with garlic powder, with hard salami, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato slices, and diced jalapenos.

Viktor's picture

Start with your standard grilled cheese ingredients (plus a little extra butter for frying).
Other ingredients: deli sliced ham and deli sliced turkey (your fave brands)

Process:
The concept here is a double-decker grilled cheese with yummy meat in both layers. Make once half with cheese and ham, cook both sides. Then add cheese and turkey on top and one last slice of bread. Flip the whole kit-n-caboodle over to cook the remaining layer.

You may add some lettuce into the second layer for variety and crunchiness.

Once cooking is complete, shovel the whole deal onto a plate and let it cool for a bit before digging in. GCC gets to be quite a mouthful, so do some jaw-stretching exercises first Wink

Enjoy!

Pizza sammach - Toasted bread, spaghetti sauce, cheese, cut up meat of choice, nuke or oven till cheese is melted, salt/pepper/garlic salt to taste.

French Fry sammach - bread, mayo, hot oven cooked fries laid single layer across bread, salt/pepper to taste.

Meatball sammach - Italian hoagie, hot meat balls, spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, nuke or oven till cheese is melted.

Little taste of each sammach - eggo's toasted, spread a small even amount of each type of jelly you have in fridge so that eggo is divided by each type.

I made this one a few days ago, and it was mighty tasty. These were also, little two-bite hors d'oevres (damnit, I can never remember how to spell that, but am too lazy to look it up) type sandwiches, but they were tasty enough that I wanted to go back and make myself a full-sized one.

Anyway, I dry-fried a bunch of sliced bell peppers (these were orange, but I'm sure color doesn't matter too much) until they were a bit blackened and set them aside. Then, I fried some sliced onion with a very small amount of butter and garlic until the onions went all brown and caramelized. Set that aside too. Then, start toasting some slices of bread, and grate some manchego cheese onto them. Add little piles of onion, more cheese, then the peppers. If you want, you can add more cheese and another slice of bread, but then you have to flip the sammich, and these were fine open-faced. mmmm.

Also, a much simpler (kinda) one. Make yourself some onion pickles: Slice up some onions (not too thin, unless you are a real flavor junkie like me) and leave them to soak overnight in a "brine" that is two parts soy sauce, two parts rice vinegar, and one part white sugar. These will keep forever in the fridge, but I find I like the taste of them best when the onions have soaked somewhere between 2 and 7 days. Anyway, stack these onto some bread with a soft and salty cheese like brie. I pair these sandwiches with brie-and-watercress sandwiches. Very summery and cold, and easy to slap together.

I, like you, am a fan of sandwiches....

Toast an english muffin, lay a piece of cheese on one side (or on both, or substitute cream cheese, it's all good). In a skillet cook a round of breakfast sausage about the same size as the english muffin; when the sausage is done, put a ring mold in the skillet, and crack an egg into the mold. Sprinkle with a little salt and cook until the yolk is set. Add the sausage and the egg to the english muffin. It'll look and in general taste like what you'd get from mcdonalds (only better), and won't cost you an arm and a leg.

One of my all time favorites growing up were Peanut Butter, Honey and Banana slices...smash between 2 slices of White or 9 Grain Wheat and you are in heaven!

My fav breakfast is making an egg sunny side up, and use 2 pieces of toast and 2 pieces of bacon and make a sandwich out of it...oh tooo Delish!

Whenever I make a grilled cheese I use Sourdough or Oroweat 9 Grain Bread, 2 slices or aged Swiss and some thinly sliced black forest ham(I always buy the Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses). Then I get the skillet piping hot, spread a thin even layer of mayonnaise on the outer halves of the bread, toss them in the pan till each side is golden... Believe me, using mayonnaise instead of butter makes the most amazing grilled cheeses ever! Anyone I've made them for has freaked out since the outsides get really crisp, the insides melt perfectly, and the sandwich doesn't get soggy or greasy like with butter.

My ultimate favorite lunch-meat is Boar's Head Salsalito Turkey...its so perfectly juicy and has a touch of spiciness from the paprika. Its perfect with swiss on ritz crackers or in a sandwich with Dijon, lettuce, tomato, and onion...but definitely lightly toast the bread.

Another sandwich that tops my taste-bud charts are if I have any leftover steak or prime rib...I slice it extremely thin, salt(sea salt) and pepper it a bit, put creamy horseradish, dijon and 2 slices of swiss...then grill it using mayo on the bread instead of butter...It is so insanely delicious! If you like you can dip in some au jus or soup...Mmmmm!

I tend towards boringness. But my normal sandwiches:

-Tuna fish, avocado and lots of red onion. If you are not as fanatically obsessive about onion as I am, use less. Or more avocado. Or both.

-Roast beef and mayonnaise. Works with cheese but I am frequently too lazy to bother.

-Bologna and mayonnaise. No one said I had to be creative, right?

-TBM! I blame Panera's for this one. Tomato, basil, mozzarella, your vinaigrette of choice and olive oil. Easy on the vinaigrette though, too much is just goopy Sad It's like a tomato and mozzarella salad. But with bread. And therefore yummier. (Wow, I'm such a white starch addict)

-Egg salad. If I knew a good egg salad recipe, I would post it. But I just get it at my boyfriend's dorm so I'd have to ask their house cook. Which would be scary. But egg salad is yummy? I add red onion for previously mentioned obsessive reasons, but that's totally optional.

Weeellll, you lot would think you were being poisoned, but - there is NOTHING like a toasted Vegemite sandwich. For preference, thickly sliced freshly baked bread, and slathered with butter (not margerine) both sides. Some people like it with cheese, some with sliced tomato, but I'm a purist. For an Aussie kid, it's total comfort food. People have very definite ideas about how thickly to spread it - a veiled swipe or slap it on, or just a decent covering right to the edges.

The Brits have Marmite, which is a bit sweeter and not as salty. Sanitarium Health Foods has a version called Promite, somewhere in the middle.

-Egg sandwiches. An egg, with whatever I have around the house. Buffalo sauce, sausage, cheese, you name it, I've probably put it on an egg sandwich
-Do burgers count? Pizza burgers rock. Make a burger, add pasta sauce. My favorite sauce includes some spicy red peppers.
-If burgers still count, the best burger I have ever had contains: a beef patty, american cheese, hash browns, one egg (over medium), and a slathering of buffalo sauce. That was the most orgasmic burger I have ever eaten.

I now make sandwitches the same way as my ex-roomie.

Step 1: Take two pieces of your favorite bread (potatoe bread for me) and toast gently (slightly more than just warming the bread)

Step 2: Apply your favorite deli meat, cheese, and condament. (personaly ham, swiss and mustard)

Step 3: take a handfull of BBQ chips and apply them to the sandwitch.

Step 4: smoosh the sandwitch so it makes a pleasent crunching sound.

Step 5: pick up and eat.

Alot of people balk at the thought of chips right on the sandwitch (i know i did at first). But now i cant have a sandwitch without some form of crunchy side dish thrown in. My ex-roomie will only use BBQ, but i'm a little more adventurious. Baloney and Chedder chips, Delicious. Turky and Salt and Viniger, Tangy. Roast Beef and Sour Cream and Onion, Savory.

I, personally, am not supposed to eat cheese, so mine are sans the mouldy milk, but here are some of mine.

Fried Egg Sandwich
Fry two or three eggs your favorite way, slather insides of bread with Thouseand Island Dressing, apply eggs.

Reuben
Rye bread, corned beef, saurkraut, swiss cheese, your fave mustard (dijon, myself), maybe some Russian dressing or Thousand Island...toast it. Substitute the meat with pastrami and the saurkraut with coleslaw, and you have a Rachel sandwich.

Tuna Melt
Has this been mentioned? Toast a tuna fish salad and cheese sandwich. Hot sandwiches are somehow terribly satisfying.

for cold sandwiches:

Chicken Salad Sandwich
Cut up leftover roasted chicken into small chunks, mix with mayo or miracle whip, or whatever, seasoning salt, chooped up pickles, green onions, celery, boiled eggs, or any other thing you can think of. Add slices of cheese, tomato, lettuce, etc.

Substitute leftover roasted turkey for the chicken, it's even better.

For PB&J, I ALWAYS mix the PB & J together first, in a bowl, then put on bread. It tastes totally different mixed together than spread seperately, love it.
