What's your favorite Open-Faced Sandwich?

We've had numerous posts about favorite sandwiches. but never one about favorite open-faced hot sandwiches. Here's your chance to tell us your favorite, and how to make it.

Me, I'm thinking hot roasted pork on whole wheat, with a side of baked beans and smashed spuds. The sandwich needs to be seasoned with S&P, and a bit of granulated garlic, but just a bit. The gravy must be made from the pork juices and be thickened with a buttery roux. For desert, a slice of hot apple pie and a glass of milk.

REmember, your open faced sandwich can be grilled toast with hot peanut butter, to turkey and dressing with gravy, to roast beef with au-jus. It has to be opened face, and exceptionally comforting. The rest is up to you.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

The Hot Brown or one of many variations.

The Hot Brown Signature Sandwich and much more at The English Grill in The Brown Hotel

We used to have a department store in town that made them, remember when full service department stores had restaurants in them.

They are also nice made with fresh asparagus instead of tomatoes.

I'm also a big fan of the open steak sandwich.

A NYS on garlic toast with a few fried onion rings on top, extra crispy fries and a spiced apple ring as a garnish, never could understand how the spiced apple ring figured into the picture!

Can I have two favorites?

Thinly sliced roast beef warmed in beef gravy and served over white bread with mashed potatoes and more gravy on the side is one

The other is a tuna melt - lightly toast your favorite bread, top it with tuna salad and cheese (I like Havarti) and place in the oven for a few minutes, till the salad is warmed through and the cheese is melted. Delish!

What's your favorite Open-Faced Sandwich?

A couple of local places specialize in gyros. Instead of sticking the meat, onions, tomatoes and tsatziki sauce inside the pita, I like it on top. So I guess that's open face.

Cochinita pibil tacos in Mexico! They're served on top of a soft tortilla, and I eat them with a fork.

Open face roast beef with mashed potatoes, smothered in gravy. Especially from a mom and pop diner.

Oops, that's three favorites.

Another favorite, not sure if it is truly open faced though.

A meatball sub that is baked in the oven with a topping of mozzarella cheese. The edges of the bun get brown and crispy while the cheese melts down over the meatballs, a real knife and fork sandwich.

A couple of layers of Hot Rare Roast Beef with Gravy on white bread. Sometimes I will use a slice of Italian white instead of American sliced. I am not a fan of white bread, but I don't want the flavor of wheat or other dark bread to interfere with the flavor of the main ingredients.

Mmmm.....AB, now I want a meatball sandwich!

I love a toasted bagel half with cream cheese, thinly sliced cukes, and smoked salmon. Had one of those yesterday. I also really like tuna melts, and hot pastrami with swiss cheese on toasted rye.

Does splitting a biscuit open and covering it with sausage gravy count? The other would be a crab melt over toasted English muffin.
