Unusual Sandwiches

Came up with a new one recently. No pix yet, but...

I combined mortadella with Cambozolla blue cheese with Mayo & mustard on sourdough. Cambozolla is a fusiin of blue and brie, so it makes for a nice creamy text with blue’s characteristic salty funkiness. Mortadella is essentially an Italian style bologna.

Sounds pretty damn tasty.

Hard to go wong with salami/Bologna and some combo of blue/brie/camembert)feta IMHO.

Thing we have 6 or 7 sauces in the fridge.

Anything salted pork related is off the menu.

Sides: pickled sweet pepper, pickled garlic cloves, sliced Campari tomato with tarragon vinegar, salt & pepper

I just bought a great feta today. Might try pairing it with the mortadella next time per your suggestion.

That sounds tasty!

I have some caramelized onion spread- sans hummus- that is slightly sweet and I’ve used it as a sandwich condiment and a steak topping.

Double balls up. Bought this last week by mistake.

Liked it so much went to buy it again but totally forgot and got plain hummus.

Tonight's experiment is a kebab burger.

Burger Kebab

Caramelized sweet onion hummus, tabouli, capsicum, onion, tomato, lettuce, swiss cheese. Habenero and sweet chilli sauces.

Home made chicken tenders. Marinaded in Smokey manuka bbq sauce, garlic, paprika, lemon juice. Coated in breadcrumbs.

Basically tweaked my kebab recipe and served it in a burger instead of wraps/pita.

I liked it but prefer burger or a kebab. Wife loved it though. Bun needed to be toasted. Baguette, wraps, pita or something similar the tenders were a bit of a winner.

Sounds pretty good!

Some thoughts:

Toasting a bun and giving it a little butter can be a game changer.

Grilled or fried chicken sandwiches also pair very well with something pickled. Most of the major chicken sandwiches I’ve had all over the USA will sport slices of dill pickle. Or occasionally a dill pickle relish. But I’ve had lower profile sandwiches with pickled onions, peppers, carrots, daikon and the like. Something about that combination of vinegar & crunch.

Yeah we have a jar of pickles and relish in the fridge. Didn't put it in these normally in beef burgers or a basic chicken/mayo/pickle.

I got the idea of pickle in Chicken burger from America hasn't really caught on here at least locally.

Think I need fresh relish.

Do you get salt and vinegar chips in USA?

I do, but nobody else I know does.😁

Surprisingly, I’ve been looking for those Kettle Caramelized Onion flavored ones you mentioned a while back, and while I’ve seen a LOT of Kettle flavors, that hasn’t been one of them.

Possibly the best ones I have found are sweet chilli and sour cream. Was a limited release one:(.

I get them, too.

That said, they do seem a notch less popular among flavored chips.

@Zardnaar

FYI, I made a somewhat complex sandwich for lunch: toasted onion roll, mayo, spicy brown mustard, thinly sliced radish, garlic sprouts, pickled red onions, ham, mortadella and feta cheese. No pix.

Still, I can say your instincts were dead on target! Mortadella and feta pair VERY well. It’s officially a combination I’m storing in my long term sandwich-making mental folders.

I’m almost out of mortadella at this point. Only enough for one more sandwich. Next time I get some, I may aim at more of a Mediterranean approach. Some salami. Oil & red wine vinegar as opposed to mayo. That kind of thing.

Light lunch. Yoghurt and some toast.

I'm guessing you don't get cheese rolls in USA?

IDK. What’s a cheese roll?

Like a grilled cheese sandwich but you roll it up. Even in NZ it's a regional thing.

The basic in is cheese and onion but you can put mustard, pineapple or whatever in them.

Larger ones use two slice of bread.


Some people use onion soup for flavouring or whatever you mix in the cheese.

Grate cheese mash with whatever flavour or meat (salami, ham etc) you feel like. Usually don't use meat myself.

Very basic kids can make them and charity drives here sell them.

One of the fish and chip shops deep fried them in batter. They'll fry anything (chocolate bars, ice cream, bread etc).

I don't eat it. Heart attack waiting to happen. I've sampled it when people share.
That's not far from the joke that I see/hear made about such carnival/fair food. I gather there is actually a point to (very briefly) deep-frying things that want to melt, but it doesn't appeal to me.
