I don't trust anyone calling themselves a human if they haven't had a sandwich. Been and will be eating sandwiches my entire life. Cheap, versatile, and effective.

My favorite? When I was in high school I used to have egg/ham/cheddar cheese Panini for breakfast a lot.

I'm glad to see a fellow believer.
Panini is fantastic. I love grilled sandwiches of any kind, add eggs and it's heavenly.

I like you. Your passion for sandwiches almost rivals, if not equals, my passion for noodles. I'm no expert on the art of wichsands but I got some thoughts to share.

I don't have a favorite sandwich. But, for me, an ideal sandwich contains some type of sauce, thinly sliced meat, salt, and pepper.
For the bread, It depends on the type of sandwich. If there are a lot of wet vegetables, like tomatoes, then I prefer a strong bread like sourdough. Actually, sourdough is the way to go all day...or white bread. Who the hell doesn't eat white bread?
There must be some type of fat in a good wich. The toast sandwich has the butter, which prevents the wichsand from getting dry as fuq. Sometimes, if a wichsand contains lots of heavy meats, some sort of acid is necessary to cut the richness. I'm not really into that rich jazz on bread.
Ideally, deli meats sliced thin and folded. That way, air-pockets form and, as you bite down, you tear through layers of flavor as the meat falls apart in the mouth rather than getting a big glob.
A light vegetable like arugula or lettuce is the jam. Sometimes tomatoes for some robust and earthly flavor action.
Lastly, the most important component, not only in sandwiches but in anything you cook, is seasoning. For wichsands, salt and pepper is the way to go. I like to VERY lightly season each layer of ingredients so in the end, the seasoning balances out.

I've had a toast sandwich in China once but...not like toast, toast. It had stuff like ham and cheese in it so I don't consider that a toast, toast sandwich.

I don't eat wichsands often. I eat noodles.

I quite fancy you as well, my noodle friend.
While I still lean towards the side of sandwiches I can respect the noodle

You seem to have a beautiful view on the crafting of sandwiches.

I once took a bowl of spicy ramen and made a toasted sandwich out of it, was actually quite nice.

The internet is the ultimate creation. Sandwiches are second. Of course I include hamburgers/hotdogs as sub-types of sandwiches. I consider burritos, and similar foods a type of wrap,wraps being sandwiches as well. If you put something between two pancakes/waffles it should be considered a sandwich.

Agreed, it's kind of like "wraps," they act as if they aren't sandwiches but I can't help but think of them as being so.
Burritos would be a bit of a stretch but I suppose it depends on the content.

Never tried it but I suddenly want to make a waffle sandwich.

haha This thread is amazing :OOO as i share so much love for sandwiches ~<33

My favorite types of sandwiches would be with tomatoe, cheese, hot sauce , and mayo! the Spicier the better !!! pepper too!! XDDD

O and i cant forget the jalapenos !!

I love spicy things but I usually don't apply it to my sandwiches, not really sure why.
I tend to lean towards making them sweet.

The only reason the thread is amazing is because sandwiches are amazing.
That's the truth of the world, pile everything we know and care about in the universe and weigh it against sandwiches -- sandwiches will win every time.

The many combinations of things you can put in between 2 pieces of bread is quite amazing.

It's mind blowing.

I guess you're right.
That sandwich is still a bit of a fallacy but it looks mouth-watering so it gets a pass.

Another way that a sandwich could consist of only one slice would be the fold technique, but I haven't used that since I was a little kiddo spreading peanut butter onto a slice for some random snackage.

I have to admit I'm mystified by your second sentence.What does that mean?

Good question. Lets just say it's up for your own interpretation
But no, I suppose I was referencing feminists and the outdated sandwich joke. It doesn't make much sense but I typed it nonetheless.

There's also the rolling technique. Pinwheel sandwiches.

Can't say I've tried Pinwheels but they certainly looks amazing, maybe not extremely filling, but amazing nonetheless.

Oh, sandwiches.
How we as a slowly evolving, and mostly non-misogynistic country/world adore you.


That's an odd term to use. Thought you were referring to the old chauvinist cliche' of "Go into the kitchen and make me a sandwich!", when everyone knows, women can simply not understand the limitless possibilities of and subtle creative artist's canvas that IS the sandwich. They're too obsessed with cupcakes.

Reminds one of a scene from "Are you Being Served?".

I have a love/hate relationship with sandwiches. I love the taste, but because my stomach is so small, it's hard to eat a whole one. It's better now, and I can eat almost all of a 6" sub if it doesn't have tons of things on it.

I eat them all the time, my favorite being a Ruben. I also like breakfast sandwiches with bacon, egg and cheese but I like my egg sunny side up

I enjoy a nice ham and cheese sandwich, but a peanut butter and apple butter sandwich is super amazing as well.
