"a very special episode" on the blog.....
The sandwich is a food item typically consisting of two slices of "Bread" between which are laid one or more layers of "Meat", "Vegetable", "Cheese", or other fillings, together with optional or traditionally provided "Condiment", "Sauce, and other accompaniments. The bread is often either lightly "Buttered", covered in a flavoured "Oil" when baked, or oil is added into the sandwich to enhance flavour.

ok folks, i am bossing EVERYONE who reads this blog (all 15 of you!) to click on the comment link and tell me your all time favorite sandwich (pronounced sang-a-wich of course.) then i will vote on the entries and pronounce a winner.

the definition above will serve as the basis on rules. good luck!!!!

i will tell you my 2 favorites, which are of course disqualified from the contest.

#2 fav: turkey, baby swiss, mayo, iceburg lettuce on lightly toasted wheat. do not substitute miracle whip for mayo. get fancy deli honey roasted turkey and baby swiss. and use tons of iceberg lettuce. my friend rachel actually invented this beauty, but she's vegetarian and i added the turkey. thus, i have named this sandwich "the meaty rachel".

#1 fav: this was invented by me when i was about 5, during the great "ketchup vs. mustard" war between me and my best friend sherry perry. she loved ketchup and i, mustard. we fought constantly and then begun coming up with experimental ways to incorporate the condiments into food. she put ketchup in her soup! then i came up with the best sandwich EVER!. soft white bread, untoasted of course. bologna, lots of mustard, and crushed snyder's potato chips. this my friends, i called the "flippin' out hardcore" sandwich.

now i boss everyone (including busy dr. and mommy sladj) to respond.

ok- i am also partial to the soft white bread, bologna (or salami) but i prefer crushed doritos. ever since i had the kid my current fave is turkey (honey roasted) with cheddar, tomato, lettuce, mayo, salt and pepper, and oil and vinegar on an italian roll. yum, i'm hungry now.

first off, it's not sang-a-wich, you dork, it's sang-wich. two syllables. Get it right, bossy.

As for my favorite sangwich, it's a toss-up. The bo-man's bacon cheeseburger from the Lizard (cajun spiced burger, with cheese and bacon served on garlic bread with cheese) or the Italian burger from Panini's (burger with melted mozzarella, pepperoni and marinara sauce)

glittergirl said...

a burger is not a sangwich, dummy.

I had to narrow down from three, "Bye, Jimmy John's #5!"

The second is Bernies Bagels' Mama Velvet, which is just half a toasted bagel served openfaced with veggie cream cheese, a slice of tomato and Muenster melted over it.

The #1 is Braunschweiger on White Bread with American Cheese and Mayo. My Dad used to make that for me, and it's easy to forget you're eating pig liver when you get to have quality time with Dad.

glittergirl said...

i knew you'd bust out the braunschweiger! i remember you made me one of those sangwiches in columbus years ago, and it was pretty tasty!

CHICKEN SANGWICH

Chris said...

you're lucky I commented on your blog at all there, bossygirl. don't go picking on my choices because you're a "food"ist like that.

1. Peanut butter and mayo on white

2. Egg salad, catsup, and applesauce on a sour dough bagel. MMMM

Zakky said...

You people are fucken sick... those gotta be the worst sangwiches i've EVER heard of...

What a bunch of amateurs. The number one, best, most awsome, kick-your-ass sangwich that ever was is actually all in the technique - what I refer to as the "scorch and squish." If prepared in any other fashion, it will not be proper. It consists of two slices of Wonder bread, heavily buttered on the outside with proper salted butter - from a cow - none of that wretched margerine crap - with one slice of Tinnamook extra sharp yellow cheddar cheese, one slice of nice salty Amish muenster cheese, a layer of those crappy, sour, salty hamburger dill chip pickles, and another slice of the cheddar. Then you heat two skillets until they are rocket hot. Take them both off the heat and put the sangwich in one pan, and put bottom of the other hot pan on top of the sangwich. Weight the top pan down with a big heavy can of something and wait about 3 minutes. You will have the most ovely, brown, kick ass toasted cheese sangwich that ever was, made even better with a bowl of Campbell's tomato soup. Yum.

And if I can't have that, then my second alltime favorite is Wonder bread spread with a good amount of Hellman's mayo, a slab of fried Superior garlic bologna, a slice of Velveeta cheese, hamburger dill chip pickels and crushed salt and vinegar potato chips on top. Hell yea!

There you have it. I win.

and the winner is......

post baby samantha sangwich!

"turkey (honey roasted) with cheddar, tomato, lettuce, mayo, salt and pepper, and oil and vinegar on an italian roll"

i don't know why, but that one speaks to me.....

congrats sladjy-pie! you win nothing, but my undying sangwich respect.

to all the losers, better luck next time!

jnet said...

i dunno...that shit mags is talking about sounds pretty good. listen to her, she knows what she's talking about.

although, i also agree with chris, the bomans bacon cheeseburger from the winking lizard is the best burger ever. EVER.

Magalotti said...

Ethel, you have cracked. Taken leave of your senses. I believe you may be suffering from Ramen Noodle toxicity - to choose a flippin' turkey and cheese?! Cuckoo for Cocopuffs. That's what you are.

I always thought braunschweiger was goose liver pate. If it's really got something to do with a pig's liver, I just don't think I can think about it....

And what are these Winking Lizard burgers everyone is talking about? I want one NOW Daddy!

SDS said...

Braunschweiger (named after Braunschweig, Germany) is a type of pork liver sausage, nearly always smoked, distinguished from other liverwurst in that it is soft enough to be used as a spread (and typically is).



It's a sad sick world!

the stick said...

one sandwich I like is swiss cheese on white bread, raw onions and lots of salt and pepper...not toasted or squashed...

sladj said...

what's so wrong about turkey and cheese- all I did was answer the question and I am ridiculed. sigh . . . By the way, the key is fresh ingredients! thanks for picking me oh wonderful one!
