Use the broccoli leaves, not the broccoli head. It is possible that broccoli leaves are the most nutritious vegetable ever. It is more nutritious than the head. I routinely put broccoli leaves on dh's sandwiches in between spinach crops.
Search this web site for the

Cannellini Bean Pate recipe. It is excellent for a sandwich filling.

This recipe is for an appetizer, but it's delicious spread on rye bread and served with a dill pickle on the side. You could actually mix the cheese into it if you like.

Liver Sausage Spread

1/2 lb. liver sausage
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbl dill pickle juice, slightly sweetened
1 tsp Worcester sauce
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1/4 tsp grated onion (?)
1 small jar pimentos, drained
cheddar cheese, grated



Mix everything together except the grated cheese. Shape into ball or loaf and roll in grated cheddar cheese.

My father-in-law used to eat sandwiches made from leftover fried potatoes and onions. I'm not talking crispy fries here, but sliced potatoes and coarsely chopped onion seasoned well with salt and pepper and fried in a small amount of grease until soft and nicely browned.

I don't rememer the measurements but:

Softened Cream Cheese
Pealed and finely diced english cucumber (if you use a regualr one seed it before you dice it)
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice (maybe a tsp)
chopped fresh dill
Salt and pepper

Mix together, add salt and pepper to taste and spread on a wheat bread or have with crackers.

Well, let's see - get some pita pockets, mayo, yogurt and salad dressings. Maybe some packages of shredded cheeses.

I'd make pita sandwiches, cutting each loaf in half and inserting one half into the other, for strength.

Make fillings of ...

- cooked veg combinations with some shredded cheese
- omelettes with the above, or with raw onion, green pepper, mushrooms
- fresh tossed salad with mayo or dressing
- fruit salads with yogurt

I have put just about everything in pita pockets, sean. They are a sandwich-lover's friend!

My sister took mashed potato sandwiches to school for lunch..not that she really liked those but that was all she could find to make lunch with.
My husband liked onion and vinegar sandwich when he had a cold.
When we lived in North Carolina they always put Cole Slaw on the hamburgers.

Could someone expand my cooking knowledge (which is slim at best) and tell me what this thread is all about?
It looks like Sean is looking for some sandwich spread to parallel what he buys in tubs at the store, but cheaper, but I don't get the huge list of "ingredients".... Are we supposed to make a spread from the ingredients? To taste like what he buys (in Ireland?).

I am so lost. Especially with all the suggestions. I obviously don't know what he is asking.

Thanks

Will check it out - thanks! Unfortunately, most of the leaves seem to be stripped away from the broccoli at the place where I buy produce. I really wonder why.

I don't know if I can clear it up for you, but I'm just asking for suggestions on what to put on sandwiches. The ingredients are the things I regularly have available. It's mostly cheap stuff, since I'm a student with little income, although I do sometimes buy things like olive oil and olives (and cheese is also pretty expensive, even if I get the cheapest).
