I just finished woofing down a hot and sweet capacola, procuitto, broccali raab, rosted portabella, fresh mozzarella, sharp provolone, roasted red pepper, olive oil, balsamic and fresh oregano on grilled tuscan bread sandwich.:)

So I wondered what is everyones good ole, favorite sandwich?

Corn beef, slaw, russion and swiss on rye is another one of mine, and of course a toasted new york bagel with lox, cream cheese red onion, tomato and capers :lips:

What do you guys crave on the bread?

-Garlic roasted leg of lamb with roasted peppers, onion marmalade on ciabatta
-a good ruben (harder and harder to find

I hate to display my pedestrian palate but...

Last Sunday I baked up some of Izzy's NY Rye, from Breads From The La Brea Bakery. I ran right to the store and bought Bologna, Yellow American Cheese & Gulden's Spicy Brown Mustard :)

Hey, Kyle -- looks good to me! After all, my test for any sandwich place is how well do they do a tuna salad on rye?

In addition to some already mentioned, other favorites are:

- Swiss cheese and tomato with mustard on rye
- Egg salad with mustard on rye or whole wheat
- Cuban sandwich -- roast pork, ham, Swiss, mayo, mustard on Cuban roll, pressed in the grill (you can leave out the pickles, but I'll eat it with)
- Hebrew National hot dog (or better yet, knockwurst) with deli mustard, sauerkraut, and sweet pickle relish, on top-sliced Arnold bun
- "Coney island" from Detroit: cheap hot dog topped with chili, chopped onions, mustard (at home, I add shredded cheddar, too)
- Turkey club on toasted challah -- sliced turkey, crisp bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo, OR the variation of TUNA club, using seared fresh tuna instead of turkey.

Grilled Pastrami on a really good french roll w/ provelone and mustard

My answer is as seasonal as produce!

For instance, in the wintertime, I love to tuck into an eggplant parmagiana hero on a beautiful semonlina roll...

Summer is for breast of turkey, brie, sundried tomatoes either on a wrap or on a toothy sub roll.

Suzanne: bacon on challah! :lol: If that's not fusion cuisine, I don't know what it is... :p

Shroom, don't apologize for the Hellman's- not to me, anyway. I've made my own and eaten plenty of Hellman's, and sometimes it's just gotta be the stuff in the jar. Homemade, to me, makes better dressing for tuna, chicken, etc. salad; or a better dip, or something more on the sauce line. The Hellman's makes a better sandwich, IMHO.

What!!! No Liverwurst on rye with raw onion and guildens mustard???

(not one of my favs)

I think some of these sandwiches are what keeps Proctor&Gamble and Colgate-Pomalive in buisness :p

Remember to brush and floss!!!

Start with a hearty grain bread. Put swiss and cheddar cheese, with thinly sliced tomatoes and avocados. On the outside, brush melted herb butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese before grilling. The ultimate grilled cheese sandwich.

I also liked grilled PB&J.

Chicken salad (poached chicken breasts, grapes, celery, red onion, and Granny smith diced apples with mayo, salt, and pepper) served in a grilled pita

And my own creation- cobb salad sandwich- chicken, bacon, avocado, green onion, cheddar cheese, boiled egg, tomatoes, with mayo.

Jim ---

Is that a picture of a Pirmani's(sp??) sandwich. I got treated to one of those in Pittsburgh --I think it is a specialty there. Very good -- an acquired taste I think with that coleslaw in there, though.

Liverwurst, bologna and Gulden's aside, I had dinner @CraftBar last night. It's the scaled down, relaxed annex to Craft. They do only 3 entrees/night and.........Sandwiches! Oh, boy:bounce:

We split 2. One had duck ham, sauteed hen of the woods mushrooms and (I forget which kind of) cheese. The second was a more pedestrian, yet no less tasty, grilled chicken breast, oven dried tomato and (I forget which kind of) cheese. They are served warm and pressed. The bread looked like ciabatta (had about the right width) and the whole thing was pressed down to somewhere between 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch. Really tasty.

I don't eat a lot of sandwiches, but my son does. My latest creation for him was a winner:

Sloppy Joe (the regular kind) with romaine and several big fresh basil leaves.
