Fine New Sandwich Creations

Just read about AllenMI's new sandwich. It sounds very good. There were also some very good comments made about it. Soooooo... As the originator of the "Breath Killer" and "Unique and Great Sandwiches" threads, I open another sandwich thread, "Fine New Sandwich Creations". First, we need a list of ingredients to choose from. We will need to compile breads, meats, cheeses, veggies, spreads, jelly and jams, butters, etc. When we come up with a comprehensive list of sandwiches ingredients, we will then proceed to create, and if possible, make, eat, and critique each creation. Now remember, this is not a challenge to make gross and disgusting combinations for others to try, and the maker get a laugh. This is an opportunity to get our creative juices flowing. The sandwiches have to be something you have never made, eaten, or seen anywhere else, and must be something that would appeal to most of us. And if the desire to make a great sandwich isn't enough, think of the coming holliday season. On Christmas Day, we spread the table with various breads, delli meats, cheeses, veggies, and condiments, along with crackers and pickles. Each person gets to make whatever kind of sandwich they want, whenever they want. Ingredients that require refrigeration are in the fridge, available to whoever needs them, as are soft-drinks, water, and milk. This makes for plenty of food, and no cooking for the hosts. WE all get to spend time together, enjoying a very special birthday celbration, and each other, instead of using up the day cooking some fancy meal. And everyone loves it. There is a time for fancy meal preperation, and there is a time to let everyone get their own food. And when it's time to let everyone share the burden of food preperation, sandwiches are a great way to do it. I'll start with some condiments, and if you think of more, please add to the list. Copy and paste from mine to yours with the additions: Pesto EVOO Mayonaise Miracle Whip (salad dressing) Dijon Mustard Truffle Oil Ketchup Yellow Prepared Mustard Honey-Mustard Anchovie Paste Ranch Dressing Sweet Pickle Relish Tartar Sauce Horseradish Cheese-Spread Butter Nut-Butters (peanut, cashew, almond, etc.) Nutella Ok, your turn. What meats, cheeses, fruits, etc. will complete our ingredient list? And, someone with a bit more knowledge of how to build this thing than I, can you compile the lists into something we can choose from to create the sandwiches? If this is too difficult a task, then we will just have to copy and paste the lists onto our own computers, and then create our sandwiches from them. Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Ok, Goodweed, here's your list. I took the liberty of compiling it as a list. Hopefully I separated everything where it needs to be:

Pesto EVOO
Mayonaise Miracle Whip (salad dressing)
Dijon Mustard
Truffle Oil
Ketchup
Yellow Prepared Mustard
Honey-Mustard
Anchovie Paste
Ranch Dressing
Sweet Pickle Relish
Tartar Sauce
Horseradish
Cheese-Spread
Butter
Nut-Butters (peanut, cashew, almond, etc.)
Nutella

To this, I would add:
Creole Mustard
Whole-grain Mustard
Mustard Horseradish sauce
Chipotle Mayo (I have this at work, but it's easily made at home if you can get some canned Chipotles in Adobo, just puree the contents of the can, and mix a little bit into some mayo)
Ceasar Dressing

For cheeses:
sliced:
Cheddar
Swiss
American
Pepperjack
Muenster
Provolone

Leaf Lettuce
Chopped Romaine
sliced ripe tomatoes
sliced onions, either yellow or red
bread-n-butter pickles
dill pickles chips
dill spears

For the meats, well, this can get VERY extensive:
sliced roast turkey breast
Honey-smoked sliced turkey breast
sliced roast beef
sliced corned beef
sliced ham
sliced salami
sliced capacola
sliced mortadella
sliced bolonga
sliced roast pork
thin-cut steaks
chicken breasts, marinated or plain
jerk-marinated chicken breasts
smoked, pulled pork
smoked, pulled brisket
smoked, pulled chicken
Bratwurst
Kielbasa
Fish????

For breads, again, we can get VERY creative:
White
Whole Wheat
Honey Wheat
Sourdough
Light Rye
Dark Rye
Marbled Rye (swirled light and dark together, very tasty!)
Dilled Sourdough
Focaccia
herb Focaccia
Ciabatta
various flavors of tortillas, as large as possible
Buns
kaiser rolls
bagettes

Now, I'll admit that I'm not really a cold-cuts fan. I prefer my sandwiches cooked, and hot. Some of the sandwiches that I like to make involve a Foreman Grill, which only takes 5 minutes to heat up, and can usually warm the bread or bun.

maasdamer
edam
shaved pecorino romano

I tried seperating the last post into lists and paragraghs on my computer. You all see how it came out, in one big block. I really don't know why it's doing this. If anyone can help me restore my submision functionality, I'd greatly appreciate it. Sincerely; Goodweed of the North

Well, here's my two bits, for what its worth.

We could categorize the types of sandwiches into "folders", such beef, pork, chicken, sausage, or vegetarian...cold or hot.

We could separate the sandwich into these 3 components:
Wrappings: what kind of "package" do you want for your sandwich?
Fillings: What's inside, meat, cheese and/or other
Condiments: sauces, pickles, relishes, etc. Also includes something served on the side, like pepperoncini with Italian beef. For example:

Sandwiches:
Kielbassa:
hot:
Wrapping: Hoagie bun, toasted
Filling: grilled Kielbassa, sauerkraut, shredded mozerella cheese
Condiments: spicy whole grain mustard

BLT:
cold:
Wrapping: Wonder Bread, toasted or not
Filling: Crisp fried bacon, sliced tomato fresh from the garden,
crunchy lettuce
Condiments: Miracle Whip or Mayo


I know this isn't exactly what you had in mind, but in order for this to work, it needs to be organized enough to be usable.

You could also do the above, but under BLT sandwiches, you could do this:

Cold Sandwiches:
BLT:
Wraps: Wonder, whole wheat, sourdough bread, toasted or not.

Fillings: Crisp fried bacon, sliced tomato, lettuce, plus any of the
following: American cheese, sliced turkey or chicken, sliced ham.

Condiments: Mayonaisse, Miracle Whip, mustard

This is a test.This is only a test.Sorry about taking up the space. Using Internet Explorer instead of FireFox to see if the spacing or silies, or bold works.I don't think it does.Every line should be double-spaced.Seeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Weed, your list is quite inclusive, but I'm afraid you have too many categories.

Category: meat sandwich, beef tongue, mayonnaise, white bread


I had a good friend when I was a little girl, who didn't have a whole lot, and the town said her mother was a "floozey". All I knew was that their house was full of love, and her mom was a great cook.
One day when I went home with my friend after school, her mom pulled this big piece of meat out of a pot (could have been a pressure cooker) and sliced it up for us. I'm sure it had garlic, salt and pepper in it...maybe other stuff. She was Italian, I think.
I don't even know if you can even buy a beef tongue any more, but that was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten.

I was only 14 then. I think, now, I'd have to have to add a little horseradish to the mayo, and maybe use some good brown bread.
