oh, but for a slice of bread to make a sammich...
i am never giving up bread for lent ever again. i was very hungry the other night, and stopped off at wendy's for a classic triple - extra onions and pickles. as i was about to sink my teeth into it, dw reminded me that the bun was bread.
it wasn't quite the same thing eating it with a knife and fork, sans bun.
ok, for sandwiches, i too could not pick just one.
but here's my list: (not in any order of preference)
sausage and peppers parm, extra sauce, on a hollowed out portugese roll.
pastrami reuben, or a corned beef reuben if they're out of pastrami.
balboa - hot roast beast on toasted, buttered garlic bread with raw onions and melted american cheese.
giacomo - roast beast, simmered in brown gravy and fried onions, on toasted semolina bread with melted provolone.
my mom's "brooklyn special" ham sandwich - boiled polish ham on white bread with lettuce, mayo, dill pickles, and doritos. yes, the doritos go on the sandwich.
rotten stinkin' tuna fish - tuna salad with raw onions, tomatoes, and hot peppers on a sesame hard roll or garlic bagel.
the best liver wurst - liverwurst on rye with raw onions and lots of spicy mustard.
chatanooga chicken, aka texas bbq chicken - grilled chicken breast on a hard roll with a grilled ham steak, butter sauteed mushrooms and onions, smothered in bbq sauce.
magherita - prosciutto, roasted red peppers, bufala mozzarella, lots of fresh basil, olive oil, red wine vinegar on an italian hero.
italian classic - prosciutto, salami, capicolla, provolone, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, onion, oregano, garlic powder, olive oil, and red wine vinegar on an italian hero.
standard blt - hellman's mayo, thick bacon that's not overcooked, fresh tomatoes and romaine from the garden on white bread.
i could go on, but my stomach is complaining very loudly...
