    How do you make your favorite sandwich?

    Tell us how you make your favorite sandwich. It may be traditional, zany, exotic, using two pieces of bread, or open-faced. Is this your own creation? Include spreads, spices, or serving suggestions. Upload the photo so we can see how yummy it looks. Mine is cinnamon raisin bread with melted cheese, tomato and avocado slices. Grind pepper, salt to taste.

    My favorite sandwich is a simple toasted cheese sandwich.  I like it on plain white bread, which I toast in a grilled sandwich toaster.  If I'm not worried about calories, I lightly butter both sides of the bread, and then place grated cheese in between. If I feel like something more delicious, I'll add sliced tomato and shaved smoked ham.  I'll toast it until the cheese melts and drips over the sides of the crust where it begins to turn nice and crunchy.  Slice into two big triangles.  No added salt or pepper.  When calorie conscious, I'll not add any butter, for the melted cheese is often enough.

      Hi Tinsky. There's nothing that matches that melted cheese sandwich, whether fried in the pan, in the toaster or under the broiler! Yum!

    I'm torn here because I love sandwiches.  I love a good hoagie and a good hamburger.  You say they are not sandwiches but I say yum.  But with your restrictions, I have to say white bread, chipped ham (indigenous to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and hard to get elsewhere) and ketchup (Heinz, of course).  That makes my sandwich a cold almost barbecued chipped ham sandwich which is also indigenous to Pittsburgh and our Isaly stores.  The only missing ingredient for the barbecued chipped ham is pickle relish that gives the tangy ketchup some sweet.

      The hoagie or hamburger would certainly be considered a sandwich as something edible between two or more slices of bread. Seems like you do have particular brand loyalty to your ingredients and like a piquant flavor.

    I love a delicious chicken salad sandwich! If I'm feeling fancy, I buy croissants. Or I might make a loaf of whole grain bread. To tender chunks of poached chicken I add mayo and plain yogurt, lemon juice, craisins, Herbs de Provence, toasted almond slivers, celery, green apple and green onions. Sometimes I add radishes when I feel really crazy and fresh herbs if they're available. :   )

    I also love a good veggie sandwich. I spread low fat cream cheese or hummus on a piece of whole wheat bread or pita and pile on the crispy cucumber, leafy lettuce, roasted red peppers, red ripe tomatoes, sprouts and cilantro leaves. Sprinkle with pink sea salt and it's time for lunch!

      Radishes would give the sandwich a bit of a kick. That veggie sandwich sounds like something you would get at a fancy restaurant. Yum.

    As a child I had a special sweet sandwich consisting of sliced banana, flaky chocolate and lovely thick set orange marmalade, all between crusty white cottage loaf slices. Too good. Tea to be guzzled down with same.
    In contrast a mean savoury is crisp lettuce, smoked ham, french mustard and beefsteak tomatoe, seasoned, then drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
    I have a hub on this very topic!!

      Wow! Chef - What an unusual combination. Everyone has heard of banana and peanut butter sandwich, but MARMALADE with banana and chocolate. I hope everyone reading will give it a try. Your second suggestion must be an all time favorite.

    My favorite sandwich lately is a roasted tofu sandwich. I use previously pressed tofu (about 1 cm thick), which gets a crunchy coating after being roasted with sea salt and olive oil. Served nice and warm between two slices of wholegrain bread spread with avocado, mustard and some greens (lettuce, sprouts and thin slices of cucumber) tastes delicious!!!!! I sometimes also add some chipotle chili which gives it the final touch.

      All vegetarians gather round to check out this healthy delight. I just bought some sprouted tofu and will prepare as a special meal. Thanks so much, Claudia.

    Great sounding sandwich, Debby.  Mine is a cinnamon raisin bagel with turkey slices.  Doesn't necessarily have to have cheese, but I love the flavors together.

      Hello Denise. Yum! We both like the flavors of raisin cinnamon with any combo of toppings.

    In Mexico on one visit, I found a simple sandwich which I often make today:
    1 Bolillo (Mexican bread - looks kind of like a croissant, but not buttery)
    1/2 fresh avocado
    1/2 fresh tomato sliced
    fresh sliced white onion to taste
    Just split open the bolillo and stuff it with the avocado, tomato and onion. It's delicious!

      Nice to read cultural traditions. This sandwich sounds similar to the ingredients on one of my favorites shown above using avocado. Yum!

    I like peanut butter and jelly with cheese and bacon.

    Take any kind of bread, I like Italian sandwich bread, toasted [I find that cold bread tends to tear more] spread your favorite peanut butter [smooth] with your favorite jelly [grape]. Add cheese, any kind, sliced or cream cheese and bacon and voila!

    I find that the saltiness of the bacon compliments the sweetness of the jelly and the creaminess of the cheese!

    Sometimes, especially in the winter, I like to grill it on my George Foreman grill.

      Dear Chris - Very odd combination. I don't think it would appeal to my palate. Can't even imagine... Happy Days!
