Sandwiches
Mar 16th, 2017, 2:54pm
 
The other day my friend and I were chatting abiut picnics.  My friend is from Iran and I was telling her about how Kiwis loooove chippie (potato chips/crisps) sandwiches.  My friend couldn't imagine anything more hideous (but we are going to have a picnic so I can make some for her  Cheesy).  
What do you like in your sandwiches ?

If I'm having a bologna or similar type sandwich I usually add lettuce and mayo. I'm a very boring eater.

I like deli meat such as smoked turkey, ham, pastrami, or roast beef; cheese such as cheddar or provolone; lettuce; and pickles.  I like it on a fancy bun or sub roll instead of regular bread.

Spaghetti  (sketti) sandwiches are my fave followed very closely by BLTS  (no lettuce, but sometimes avocado), grilled cheese, Joanne Fluke's egg salad, and tuna fish (made with dill relish and hard boiled egg and topped with potato chips).

The only way I can eat salt and vinegar chips is if they're on a sandwich, and they're the only chips I'll put on a chip sandwich. It also has to be white bread, even though normally I prefer grain bread. I don't have them often, but I do get a craving for them once in a while. I also like hot chip sandwiches, but the chips have to be just right and from a proper fish and chip shop. I don't really mind what I have on my sandwiches, just so long as there's no egg and no mayo (or as little as possible). I will scrape it out of my sandwich if there's too much because I don't really like it. I tend to have wraps more at home. I like to use avocado and hummus in place of butter when using salad type fillings. Butter's for spreads such as Marmite or if I'm having tuna. I love the grilled chicken paninis at the cafe where my brother works.

 Shocked  My dad's childhood favorite was sugar cookie sandwiches -- grandma made these big, thin, crisp sugar cookies that he'd slap between two pieces of white bread with butter.   Tongue
 
Although I may have to give chippie sandwiches a try.  I like all kinds of sandwiches.  We watched a show called "Sandwiches You Will Like" when the kids were little and have tried a bunch from that, and we have a couple that we try to have every year -- one is a baked ham sandwich with a horseradish poppy seed spread, mmmmm.  Another is ham with cream cheese and corn.  And I like chipped ham sandwiches -- very thin sliced ham you fry up a bit and melt some cheese over.  But usually we get a whole spiral cut bone-in ham and used those slices for sandwiches.
 
Not sure what my favorite is, though.  French Dip were my favorite for a while.  BLTs were my favorite when hubby first started growing tomatoes -- homemade tomatoes really take those to another level!  I make a lot of meat sandwich spreads in the summer -- buzz up a chicken or pot roast in the crock pot, then chop the meat in the food processor and mix it with stuff.  Corned beef mixed with tiny chopped red onions, Dijon mustard, cream cheese, sour cream and dill is pretty good.  
 
I like sliced bologna and salami and olive loaf and summer sausage in sandwiches, but we rarely get those except on vacation.  Too many cheaper options at home!   Haven't even gotten to cheese spreads (some of which we have on toast) or egg salads.  I like some (fake) crab and salmon spreads, but I'm not much for tuna.  Mom used to feed us macaroni with tuna fish every week or every other week, so we only have tuna if someone gifts us with some (hubby's former boss shares hubby's weakness for sales, and sometimes he'd come home with deals his wife didn't want -- or didn't want that much of...).
 
Sandwiches You Will Like is on youtube, and the guy who did it, Rick Sebak, also did a show on the Lincoln Highway (A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway) that we also enjoyed and recommend.  The discs have extra material that is often equally good, IMHO -- he's got a rambly format that wanders a lot, so when they cut a bit it's usually an intact section that is related to the aired version but is all new.

Just in case anyone is wondering, I don't think you can buy bologna in NZ 😺.  My friend and I introduced out other friend (from Iran) to chipoie sandwiches the other day.  She loooved them !  Although she was wrinkling her nose as she initially watched our friend and I make (and devour) ours 😁

Wow, bologna's like the "basic" purchased sandwich meat in the U.S., although Summer Sausage and Cotto Salami are strong contenders.  I give bologna the edge because it's been available sliced by the pound pretty much everywhere we've looked for it in the U.S., and because it's the base for olive loaf or pickle loaf.  I suspect it's the most popular because it's pretty cheap to make -- it's a very finely ground sausage with added lard -- so there's a national brand.  The same guys sell versions of Summer Sausage and Cotto Salami, but a lot of the more interesting American sandwich sausage meats are more local.
 
Bologna is a variation of mortadella, and originated in Bologna Italy, however I suspect American bologna came over with the German immigrants, because it's fairly garlic-y.  Does NZ have much of a German heritage?  Although it also may be a translation thing -- German Bologna is called "Berliner" or "Berliner Fleischwurst" in Australia, so you guys might have Bologna only it's called something different.

I'm sort of a basic meat and potatoes guy - but my favourite sandwich is probably ham and cheese on good seeded Jewish rye bread.   Add bacon to ANY sandwich and I am in love !   LOL
 
Several years ago there was a local restaurant which served my most favourite sandwich EVER and it was an herbed grilled chicken breast with bacon, Jack cheese, and a mayo mixed with fresh basil - all on a square chiabatta bread !  It was the best thing I had ever tasted and no matter how much I tried to make one like it at home, it was just never quite as perfect.   The restaurant closed and I have been craving that sandwich ever since !

Since I've been doing weight watchers, I have discovered a deli meat that I eat regularly. Cracked pepper turkey breast (Prima Della brand from walmart). I love that stuff and I average eating about a pound a week. I used to eat the cajun turkey breast but have switched to the cracked pepper kind.  I use the lower calorie bread and a slice of velveeta cheese and the sandwich is only 4 weight watcher points.

We don't have much of a German heritage. We do have a similar sandwich meat made with pork called luncheon (or belgium in the south). It doesn't contain any garlic.
