Sandwich and Salad Ideas [27 Feb 2009|06:56pm]

[ mood | hungry ]


I'm looking to make lunch time a little bit easier (and a lot tastier!) while I'm at work... or at home.

I LoVe most types of sandwiches and salads, and I was hoping to get your favorite yummy ideas for these. I'm getting a bit tired of the same old cheese sandwich and garden salad.

Also, what are your favorite condiments and salad dressings? Which sandwiches and salads do you pair them with, and do you have recipes for them?

Thanks!

x-posted a tad.

Apple and Celery sandwich filling [05 Mar 2008|01:22pm]

zoecb
 I found this interesting looking recipe on a blog: http://chowmeinandpasta.blogspot.com/

Apple and celery sandwich filling:

Dice some apple, celery, boiled potato and mature chedder cheese.
Add some mayonnaise, some english mustard (optional) and a little bit
lemon juice into the diced vegetables. Mix well and serve.



So much for healthy, but still... looks awesome.

Celery [05 Mar 2008|12:59pm]

zoecb

Celery is amazing.

It's not just that it's ridiculously healthy, but it's got good texture. It's green and crunchy and vitamin-filled and has no calories. It needs to be in sandwiches more. Lately I have been imitating the M&S cheese and celery model, for a very basic sandwich:

Brown bread
Slices of celery in little crescent shapes
Slices of cheddar cheese
Brown bread

But quite frankly this simplicity does not do the good name of celery justice. I've found I can more or less put celery on anything I am eating, put it in any salad at all and it works great all over the place.

Does anyone else know of good celery combinations that might work in a sandwich context?

The Best Sandwiches in America [17 Feb 2008|10:20pm]

Well, sandwich_party folks, I must admit that I scarfed this link from retention in the food_porn community, but it was too good a link not to share.

http://www.esquire.com/features/food-drink/sandwiches


I must say that the Reggie Deluxe, the The Tyler, the Hot Lobster Roll, and the Prosciutto and Asiago would be my top choices. I may even try to recreate a few of them at home.

Any thoughts? Do weigh in!

Wraps [10 Feb 2008|06:31pm]

[ mood | thoughtful ]



How do you all feel about wraps? I feel like they're starting to corner a section of the sandwich market, especially in supermarkets, and especially when they contain hoi sin duck stuff. Do you like them? Are they as good as a sandwich? Could they be classed as a sandwich?

You can stuff a lot into a wrap, and not have the problem you have with sandwiches whereby you pile them too high and they don't fit into your mouth. The corn wrap part is also better at soaking up sauces and liquids and stuff than bread, which can go soggy. HOWEVER, the corn part is also very thin, without the same comfort level as a doorstop slice of bread. Furthermore, I wouldn't really know where to start with making a wrap at home, whereas sandwich construction is an almost instinctive skill.

Thoughts?

aw no one eats sandwiches anymore? :( i guess i was a little late to the party.

anyway, today it was really cold. with windchill it was about -13* :( i wanted a sandwich so i walked my ass to the store and got supplies. halfway back i realized i forgot a very important ingredient for sandwiches. BREAD. sadffvnknvfnk so once i got back and could feel my face again i went to a nearby gas station for bread.

freezing my ass off was totally worth it though:

Leftovers [11 Dec 2007|08:34pm]

I made this out of leftovers the other day:

white bread
gravy
reheated bits of chicken
white bread

It was lovely, but quite soggy. Any ideas as to what would make this less soggy? Butter, maybe?

I was just reading back over the glory days of this community (the tuna debate! the party report! the sunday lunch sandwich blueprint!) and I have to admit, friends, that I became a mite tearful. Oh, joy, joy in sandwiches! And let this community reign in all its deserved glory once more!

A sandwich suitable for a healthy afternoon snack (can be multiplied to form a pleasing, light luncheon sandwich platter):

Floured bap
Thinly spread pesto
Feta cheese
Sliced cherry tomatoes
Rocket leaves
Thinly spread pesto
Floured bap

Mmmmmmm.

Hello fellow sandwich lovers!  My name is Jeni and I'm new.  *waves*

Today I made an amazing sandwich for dinner:

Kaiser Roll
Munster Cheese
Red Onion
Black Olives
Tofu*
Tomato
Lettuce
Kaiser Roll

The two ends of the roll were warmed in the oven prior to assembly.  The top had cheese on it and I broiled it until it got melty and delicious.

* The tofu was dipped in olive oil then dredged with a mixture of salt, fresh cracked pepper, paprika, oregano, and garlic powder (basically all of the good sounding stuff left in my meager pantry) then pan fried until crispy on the outside.

I also have an avocado I had planned on mashing and spreading on the bottom piece of the roll but it isn't quit ready yet.

If only I also had a pickle spear and some kettle chips.  Mmmmm.

Feta Cheese and Honey! [24 Nov 2007|02:07pm]

zoecb
The other day my flatmate made herself this sandwich:

Burgen bread (seeded bread) 
light margarine
honey
crumbly feta cheese 
light margarine
Burgen bread              

I was very intrigued, but didn't think to ask to try a bit. But it looks awesome. One day, when I am rich enough to be able to afford feta cheese, and can be arsed to buy poncy bread, I will recreate this thing. In the meantime if anyone else wants to, please report back!
She has informed me that the bread needs to be seeded or it won't have the optimal texture.

Best sandwich bread? [05 Nov 2007|11:45am]

[ mood | curious ]

I wanted to create a poll but I need to upgrade my account so I can't.    I am interested in peoples thoughts of the best kind of sandwich bread type there is.  Things such as:

          Normal sliced bread
          Bread roll (Bap, stottie, bread cake, barm cake, etc)
          Bagle
          Pita bread
          Ciabatta
          Panini
          Tortilla
          
I'm sure there are lots more.

My favourite is the Bagle.  I love how dense the bread is and it is delicious toasted with lots of hot butter. mmm

Peanut butter? yay or nay [28 Oct 2007|09:45pm]

I love peanut butter but I guess it's another similar thing to Marmite as in love or hate.    If you like it...try peanut butter and salad cream..it does strangly work.....It helps if you like salad cream too :)

The other day I had an M&S Cheese and Celery sandwich. Mainly because it was the cheapest thing in Euston Station, at £1.40.

It was really very nice.

I am going to buy some celery and make myself some sometime.

Jam sandwiches made with lots of butter and semi-toasted bread.

Packing 3 major and important food groups (ie, fat, sugar, and carbohydrate) into one meal.  Mmm.

In response to the latest call for toasted sandwich posts, I give you tonight's dinner:


Wheat bread
Tuna fish (not open for debate -- just tuna and mayo) ;o)
Incredible amounts of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese
Tuna fish
Wheat bread


An oldie, but goodie. (And perfect when you need some comfort food!)

okay, we need some action in this community! we hardly ever update! anyway, this week i have rediscovered the sheer amazingness of toasted sandwiches. this involves using a sandwich toaster (breville are the most popular brand i believe) and toasting your sandwiches on both sides to make melted cheesy goodness.

the morning after my pirate party i made toasted sandwiches and they went as follows:

                                                                       margarine
                                                                     white bread
                                                                   cheddar cheese
                                                                          ham
                                                                   white bread
                                                                       margarine

the variety of cheese you use is very important. camembert for instance is excellent tasting but melts very easily and you tend to end up with a cheesy mess. cheddar is the traditional favourite i believe, and it is damn good. 

share your toasted experiences now!
