Huh? Who's worried?

Clearly you're not getting that I just sought clarity so, if I were you, I would refrain from telling me what to do.

I've also made hot pork or beef with toasted bread to retain a bit more texture with the gravy.

And for Creative, I don't always have potatoes with it although that's normal in most diners. Sometimes I just do just peas or green beans on the side, but close enough to get some gravy with each bite.

It's really depressing talking about comfort foods like this when I'm low carbing.

Toasted bread does sound a lot better.

Are all your comfort foods carb-based? I find a good chicken soup or just bananas and custard can hit the spot.

I think comfort food is in the eye of the beholder. I love a good chicken soup too. Tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Creative, if you ever get a chance to eat at an American diner, definitely order the roast beef sandwich! Yeah, carb overload, but oh so good!

Well, you keep going on and on about it; it seems like you're pretty concerned. I would have thought two or three answers would provide enough clarity, but apparently not. It's really a simple dish: Leftover roast beef on bread with gravy and usually mashed potatoes.

Good thing you're not me

Thrilled that you finally understand

There is so much I love about American food! We get a TV programme that shows good US diners/takeaways and I drool with envy! Gastronomic paradise.

Well I like these kind of HOT roast beef and gravy OR HOT turkey and gravy sandwiches ON/IN a long roll. No mashed potatoes are served with these. Just a nice roll to soak up the gravy.

And how about a hot corned beef or hot pastrami sandwich?

That is not what I think of as a sandwich, but I guess there are sandwiches and there are sandwiches. I can't see Lord Sandwich carrying that with him to eat on his way to battle lol. The meat and gravy look lovely, but I think I would have some veg and potato with it and maybe use a bit of bread to soak up the gravy if necessary.

Here's a picture of a gravy packet made by a local chain of chicken restos, so you can make make a hot chicken sandwich at home that tastes like resto food. In most restos around here (Quebec), if you order "hot chicken", you will get something that looks like this. The peas could be on the side. Does this seem more like a sandwich?
