Sandwich Fillers

Recommended Posts

littlebrowndragon

 

As I remarked in another food related topic, I do not like cooking.  Most of my meals are sandwiches.  One of my favourites is ham with coleslaw (or red cabbage), sliced pickled gherkins and lettuce.  Having said I don't like cooking, coming up with new sandwich fillings makes the job a little more interesting.  For example, using red cabbage instead of coleslaw was a recent innovation. 

So, what are your favourite sandwich fillers? 

Do you have any unusual food combinations in  sandwiches that I could try?

When I am at work I eat sandwiches and my preferences are for smoked salmon with cheese spread and cucumber; BLTs, fish fingers with ketchup, pilchards/sardines with tomato and tabasco sauce, or tuna and mayonnaise.

When I was very young, we used to eat brown sugar sandwiches :o     I also once came up with marmalade and Branston pickle.   Which I must try again some day!

Thanks.  Avocado and humous sound like interesting fillings...

A friend of mine used to take marmalade with his breakfast bacon.  I had given consideration to trying marmalade with ham.  Marmalade and Branston pickle - will give it a try.

Yeah, too many good sandwiches out there to type them all, that was a handy list while I was being lazy on the tablet earlier this morning.

For me a "new" thing to try out is Kewpee mayo- it's mayo from Japan, I just got some recently for the first time. For egg sandwiches specifically, but I'll also use it in other cooking applications.

Sauerkraut, Kimchi, avocado, 'specialty' bacon or cured ham, prosciutto. And eggs, of course. They also make tons of interesting varieties of mayo, now. For me, when it comes to a sandwich, it's either a Cuban or a Reuben. If I want a few less calories but still an awesome filling meal, can't beat a couple good quality whole fried eggs between a couple pieces of sourdough. Add a little bacon fat to the eggs and maybe a couple strips on top.

Peanut Butter and Mayonnaise. My grandpa actually likes them together.

I do the basic turkey, swiss, and mayo. If I am feeling fancy I slice up a hard boiled egg and add it

Another favourite sandwich filler is sliced apple.  I often use sliced apple with ham or frankfurters (cold frankfurters - no need to heat them up).

A favourite of mine used to be marmalade with cheese, usually cheddar.

Some favourites I can make at home easily:

- Egg (mashed with mayo) and baby spinach leaves;

- Chicken and avocado;

- Smoked salmon, tomato (Roma), feta cheese and spinach leaves.

If toasted sandwiches are allowed:

- Fried egg, two slices of bacon, slice of cheese, barbecue sauce and some garlic.

An old favourite from a sandwich shop years ago:

- Ham, chutney, tomato, asparagus and cheese.

It's the salty sweet that makes it good, at least me. I have to be in a mood for it though.

Anything is good when Bacon is added. Just as water is the universal solvent. You cannot go wrong.
