Unusual Sandwiches

You know how sometimes you pair things up on the plate, and everything just clicks? Not just tastes good, but somehow, just work better together than you’d imagined? That happened to me tonight.

I made another one of my sandwiches: toasted sourdough with bacon, dill havarti, radish sprouts, mayo and yellow mustard. And I served it with sliced campari tomatoes drizzled with lemon infused EVOO, tarragon vinegar, chives, black pepper, and sea salt, plus a bowl of chilled black grapes. It was a tasty meal, no matter what bite I took next.

But going from sandwich => grapes => tomatoes => sandwich proved to just fortify each other’s flavors as the meal progressed. I got stuck in that loop.

The sandwich I discovered late last year at restaurant, that I hope I can get back to when things re-open, is a "Carolina Hot Brown". 8 ounce hamburger steak cooked to temp on Texas toast and topped with mashed potatoes and our Cabernet Mushroom Brown Gravy. It's lot better than the orignal Hot Brown from Louisville (which was the most disappointing Turkey sandwich I ever had).

Finally realized I could just get one carryout...

That certainly pushes the boundaries of the sandwich! Is there a good spillage effect when you bite into this this?
Not sure if spillage is the right word. Overflow, Emittance, Evacuation. No probably not evacuation.

I guess that's an important question, is an "open-faced sandwich" still a sandwich? (Does being designed to be eaten with a fork outweigh the fact it has bread buried at the bottom?).

In the Middle Ages, folks often used a "trencher" (basically, a large round of bread) as dishware... that you'd then eat (or give as alms for the poor to eat).

This could make pretty much any meal into a sandwich.

If you can wrap the contents, does that then allow for the enchilada, calzone, roti or puri? I mean we are not far from the pizza here. What more would sombrero-man allow?

I was starting to type an answer, but got stuck. What type of bread counts for a sandwich? Is a tortilla or pita the thing of a sandwich, or do they define their own class of foods?

I think the definition of an enworld sandwich should come from the original poster...

If it’s stuff served in/on bread, I’d consider those sandwiches. I’ve been making sandwiches on tortillas, pitas, naan and other breads for a long time,

That includes hot dogs, burgers and all kinds of things until you get into stuffed pastries. Then you’re talking varieties of hand pies.

The exceptions I think I’d make are pizzas and injera- an Ethiopian flatbread. And I think I make those exceptions because they’re both only used in a particular way.

Better than my sandwich. Was hungry after it and disappointed.

Grandma's choice though she likes roasts and fish and ye old school meat.

Spices, flavour,taste etc not so appealing.
Time to start packing a vial of seasonings for YOUR food. Or even a bandolier or utility belt...or maybe wrist shooters!

”Who are you?”

”I’m Spicierman!”

My father in law has been growing chilli's and I can eat a hot Vindaloo no problem.

Arabic food is spiced but not hot. Some if them can disagree with me though or espicially the wife. Tastes good going down.

Basically our tradition is when it's your birthday you pick the restaurant and family and friends adds up to around 15-16 people.

Since we're not big on consumer goods we dine out a lot.
