Grilled cheese is delicious, especially if'n you use more than one kind of cheese and pair it with tomato soup.

There's a barbecue place a few blocks from my house that has catfish po'boys. MMMM.

Aren't BLTs awesome, with the right amount of mayo, and the bacon is crisp and the tomatoes are juicy?

Post your random sandwich thoughts/recipes.

We made hot wings last night, and I gussied mine up into a hot wings sandwich because hey, why not.

Bread must be a magical food, because anything placed between two pieces of it becomes somehow more delicious.

There's a place I go to called Jersey Mike's and they make the best sammich ever: turkey, ham, bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, oil, red vinegar, salt & pepper. OH GOD I WANT ONE RIGHT NOW

But what types of bread do you use? How are the meats cooked? Dig deeper people!

Shinji: Try adding lettuce, pickles and onions in there! It will rock your world!

Anyone from now on who doesn't visualize their sandwhich with typography like the above example is a failure.

I just crafted some fine chicken salad, consisting of:

chicken (!!)
blue cheese dressing
dijon mustard
sriracha
diced scallions
a little bit of basil-infused olive oil
a whole lot of pepper

and smeared it into the middle of a delicious croissant. it was pretty perfect! it would've been extra perfect with the addition of some dried cranberries or walnuts or something.

That sounds awesome. Interestingly, provolone sucks unless it's on a sandwich, then it's delicious.

I can think of more important things to get angry about.

I would, but my fridge isn't big enough to keep fresh veggies in =(

I've always felt that the dividing line between a sandwich and a sammich is how much drool your mouth produces in anticipation of eating said sandwich/sammich.

I share shivam's hatred of 'sammich', but I don't think I share his fiery passion about it.

Meatball sandwiches are aces. Pulled pork is pretty good too!

The Mediterranean deli in my town has a chicken pesto sandwich, but I haven't worked up the guts to try it yet. (Also they only had the last time I was there and I haven't been back since.)

Gimme a Glock, gimme a 4-5
And I would be straight
Might make it through the day
But by the night I'd need two AK's
A couple of sets of extra clips
And some ham sandwiches
The po-pos know me
And they used to my shenanigans

I don't really make sandwiches at home, unless it's peanut butter & jelly or peanut butter & honey that I throw together out of desperation. My favorite place for sandwiches is Cafecito, a Cuban sandwich in the southern part of downtown Chicago that is run by a Lebanese guy. He does this sandwich of chimichurri and Argentinian chorizo that is off the scale. His regular Cuban is great as well.

My favorite sandwich is a chopped whole hog barbecue(with skin) and slaw sandwich. A little smoky, a little spicy, a little cool and sweet.

I also like tortas from Mexican places, but they're so big.

I made my customary Double Fried Egg Sandwich at 2 in the morning last night, and it was spectacular.

I keep my lunch sandwiches interesting by buying interesting cheeses from the co-op's deli (smoked mozzerella, havarti dill, sharp aged cheddars, jalapeno jack, etc etc etc) and locally-produced salami or sopresata, which is pretty damn tasty. Also sometimes my wife makes delicious home-made breads, like that rosemary one - that was so good.

yum, yum, yum. artisanal lunch meat is soooo good, as is homemade bread.

I really love Cubans (ham, pork loin, swiss, stone ground mustard, pickle), but that's a sandwich I'm never going to make at home since I don't have roast sliced pork loin on hand generally. Fortunately there's a place around the corner that does a great Cuban.

We also live near Melt, the best sandwich joint in Cincinnati, and we probably eat there once a week. the meat is locally sourced and from organic small farms, and they do tons of vegetarian and vegan options. they have one sandwich called the Joan of Arc which has roast beef, roasted garlic, caramelized onions, provolone, and blue cheese crumbles. i also get a seitan bbq sandwich with white cheddar and banana peppers.

Nah, no-one enunciates the "nd". It's plain old Samwitch.

The typical sandwich I make is pepperoni, onion, green pepper, black olives, and mustard on Wasa whole grain crispbread.

I enunciate the "nd". I think most people in the midwestern US do. It's not a hard "D", but it's there.

I can attest that this is the standard pronunciation in Ohio. People here only say "sammich" if they are being cutesy/twee.

Yeah, sammich is still people trying to sound silly, but samwitch and samwidge are the only pronunciations you really hear near me. Only proper RP speakers enunciate it properly.

The Reuben is the best sandwich.
Except a Reuben with pastrami instead of corned beef.
Because pastrami is the best deli meat.

Huh. RP = received pronunciation? what neck of the woods are you in, Pombar?

I am in sandwich heaven here in New York. In fact, three of New York magazine's top-rated sandwiches are within walking distance of my apartment office, including this tasty number (http://nymag.com/restaurants/articles/09/07/cheapsandwiches/index2.html). Actually, almost every sandwich at Num Pang is delicious. Additionally there's a little bodega/corner deli 4 blocks from my apartment where I swear they must put crack in their sandwiches (okay, I stole that line from a NY mag writeup of the place). The ingredients aren't particularly special there, but they make good combinations of meats, cheeses, veggie, and condiments and it is just delicious.

I do miss Philly-style hoagies, though. The equivalent New York sub just isn't as good.

And sammich sounds goddamn awful. People on the east coast say "sandwich".

Huh. RP = received pronunciation? what neck of the woods are you in, Pombar?Where in London, UK? Islington/Camden divide. So there're some RP speakers you hear on Hampstead Heath and the like. It's not an accent that warms me to speakers of it, however, and this seems to be the prevailing attitude of the last couple of decades.

Reuben's are the best sandwich There is an Irish pub in Sac I get mine from and a Jewish Deli back home in Palm Desert that serve excellent ones

(and I think I have always pronounced it sanwich, though sometimes a d slips in. I bet it is because my mom's mom's family was from the mid-west, though we don't call soda "pop" like those idiots do" ) oh, calm down I love you guys, despite your idiocy

I'm easy to please with just a simple cheese or turkey sandwich, but my all-time favorite is cold roast beef with lettuce & mayo on a nice hard roll. The pinker the beef the better.
