Barley miso, tahinni and alfalfa sprouts, with cherry tomatoes on the side, disgustingly healthy but really nice.

Hen that sounds lush ... I love alfalfa sprouts ... I've got me brisket slow cooking ... Jamie Oliver said a Reuben's sandwich is the best sandwich he has tasted ... I can't believe I haven't heard of it ...

I rarely buy ready made sandwiches. They always put too much in them usually things I don't like.
I prefer plain such as just cheese or cheese and pickle.
Can't beat a crisp sandwich.

Now that is sandwich which is my favourite. Cold roast beef left over from the joint the day before.

Store bought beef even carved at the deli never tastes the same.

You need to put some bacon in that crisp sandwich, Barney.

A favourite as a child, bacon, crisps, Warbies white bread and ketchup. Pile it in and squash it all down .. perfect bacon buttie!

Reuben sounds such a lovely lad Joolsy. I think I’d be tempted to eat him all up.
As for the sandwich: I had one last year when I was visiting my son in Manchester. I can’t remember exactly what was in it but it included salt beef with sauerkraut inside rye bread.it was delicious.

I have just had a fish finger one. Sometimes it would be a butty, but today it was a thick slice of Aldi Malted loaf, toasted, buttered, ketchuped, with 4 fish fingers on top, 3 of them lengthways, the other across, perfectly fitting the toast.

I fancy another one. Perhaps later.

Crushed peas with salt, vinegar and ketchup on seeded bread with spread with real butter, must be fresh peas or the only ones you can use from a tin are the big marrowfat ones :) yum

Not sure I have a favourite sandwich but like the following, cottage cheese and walnuts, polony and pickle, peanut butter and bramble jelly. They are 'treats' as am more likely to have chicken or ham salad with the thinnest sliced bread I can find ...

good thing that I have not got any bread in the house as I would like to make a huge sandwich to go with my mug of tea!

I like marmite and thin sliced cucumber on white bread sandwiches.
And sometimes I long for a vesper sandwich my aunt would bring with a huge can of tea to the workers in the fields at harvest time.
Doorsteps of fresh bread, lashes of butter , soft white sugar and a slice of pompernickle on top. this gave the men and us children who " helped" enough energy to work an other 2 / 3 hours .

hi Joolsy.

I woke up this morning with a happy , happy feeling. I had a glorious sandwich dream.
All the MSE sandwich lovers were in a cosy pub which had tables with bread, butter and all the ingredients needed to make our favourite sandwiches laid out. . Little Reuben, master-chef, was making the Reuben ones - and they were THE BEST ! ever
My late aunt Dina came in with the can of tea and the sugar / pomperknickle sandwiches . There was such a real, wonderful warm feeling of goodwill that will last me for days!

Leogirl.

Thats a nice dream Leogirl.

alliez, do you like very thin bread or are you doing it for health reasons? I was really pleased today to see a new report out by WHO saying that wholegrain and vegetable carbs are good for you and help prevent many cancers.

Has no-one mentioned the jam sandwich?
Female
wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 11-Jan-2019 18:42 Message #4733206
Yeah, but, what sort of jam? My favourite jam sandwich is either buttered on both sides of the bread and fried or dipped in beaten egg and fried, its so good the French even have a fancy name for it rather than an eggy bread jam sandwich.

Sounds delicious wonderoushen but if we have sandwiches it’s usually to a lack of time to make anything else.
