    Let's celebrate the sandwich

    It is 250 years since the invention of the sandwich. A cause for great celebration because I have one for lunch nearly every day. My favourite is roast beef or lamb with gravy in multi-grain bread. Although the meat has to be cooked just right - tender and pulls apart easily.

    My favorite: fresh (or buffala) mozzarella, tomato, basil, salt and pepper, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, on a baguette.

    2nd favorite: corned beef (real deli) on rye, with Russian dressing and cole slaw.

    BLT! Bacon, lettuce and tomato, with Miracle Whip, salt and a little pepper. Toasted please. The folks that run the deli know me well. And it has to be side bacon, no other kind will do.

    2nd choice: peanut butter and banana.

    The cashew peanut butter, pepper jelly, and duck sandwich from Bayona.

    My second favorite sandwich is a buttered ciabbata with pesto butter, fresh tomatoes, and grilled buffalo mozarella with fresh basil leaves and fresh-cracked pepper. I've had this in various incarnations, but the best was at a random Mediterranian deli in Boston.

    This, especially if the tomato is homegrown and fresh out of the garden, or my mother's pimento cheese, which I've never been able to duplicate.

    Thinly sliced chicken breast, mango and fresh tomato with a little bit of mayo on lightly toasted multi-grain bread

    or

    chunky peanut butter and sliced English cucumber on white or multi-grain. Oops, forgot a little bit of honey!

    Both are yummy in my tummy!

    Too many to name!
    The one that cruisin likes with mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil on a baguette
    bahn mi
    cocoa almond spread on wholewheat toast
    and one that holds a special place in my heart:

    pear slices and brie on baguette, drizzled with honey.

    But I won't say no to a hearty brisket sandwich on rye either, depends on my mood.

    sandwich!

    I think the idea of the sandwich came into being far longer than 250 years ago. It would have followed shortly after the invention of flat bread/risen bread, which was naturally used to mop up meat juices.

    I don't eat a lot of sandwiches because I'm not really a bread person and am fussy about the naturalness of my ingredients - no Subway or MacDonalds for me, thank you.

    A good pastrami on rye is divine,however, as is a home-made tuna salad sandwich with avocado and lots of lettuce.

    I had a killer BBQ sandwich in Arizona yesterday and am eternally fond of egg salad sandwiches with avocado (love it obviously).

    Peanut butter and jam or banana also hits the spot. I don't eat them often though because I'm one of those who can't keep her finger out of the peanut butter jar.

    I am sure if they asked the question on Stephen Fry's QI then you would get a totally different answer to who invented the sandwich.

    cruisin--your sandwich favorite isn't too far off from one of my faves---just substitute roasted red peppers for tomato and a really mellow cream cheese for the mozzarella...

    I'm all about eggs: egg salad, fried egg and bacon sandwich (runny yolk necessary), scrambled eggs with whatever cheese, herbs around on a thick slice of toast, croque monsieur....there is so much you can do with an egg.

    When I have a sweet tooth I'll go for a Monte Christo with raspberry preserves and yes--there does need to be powdered sugar dusted on top..

    My relatives in New Jersey (they live near Philly) introduced me to the cheesesteak when I was a kid. I think the deli they love is still open ---Martino's---anyway I like a good cheesesteak.

    I want to talk about Lebanese meat and cheese pies (like a square version of a bierock) but I'm not sure they qualify.

    I am a devotee of the tuna sandwich. Mayo made with olive oil, some sort of sweet relish (no HFCS), and a good whole grain mustard, with slices of ripe tomato, on home-made whole wheat. Yes.
