Okay. . . So Now I'm Hungry!


Thinking about today's Ten on Tuesday topic - Ten Favorite Sandwiches - makes me hungry!  Sandwiches are a staple in our house -- quick and tasty, but not terribly fancy or involved.


My favorites?

  1. Tuna Salad - with just enough mayo, more than a dash of pepper, a sprinkling of lemon juice, and jalapeños.  (And preferably on rye bread.)
  2. Grilled Cheese - with sharp cheddar just oozing out enough to brown a little bit and mayo instead of butter.  (And preferably on sourdough.)
  3. Turkey and Swiss - with lettuce, fresh tomato, dijon mustard, and a bit of mayo.  (Sourdough, please.) (And a pickle on the side!)
  4. BLT - with fresh tomatoes and crisp lettuce and perfectly-cooked bacon that explodes in your mouth.  (On toasted whole-grain bread.)
  5. Reuben - make sure there's plenty of Russian dressing!  (On rye, natch.)
  6. Tuna Melt - with perfect tuna salad and a slice of cheddar -- open faced and perfectly bubbling under the broiler.  (On an English muffin.)
  7. Fried Egg on Toast - with plenty of salt and pepper, some Tabasco sauce, and a bit of mayo.  Make sure the yolk is still runny and oozing over the bread.  (Whole grain bread for this one.)
  8. Hot Turkey - Tom's post-Thanksgiving specialty -- leftover turkey, heated in leftover gravy, served on toast (usually leftover whole-grain).  (I usually mix in leftover cranberry sauce, too.)
  9. Peanut Butter and Cheese - (Yeah, I prefer peanut butter with savory flavors rather than sweet.)  A little bit of bacon with the peanut butter and cheese is even better!  (On any kind of bread, toasted.)
  10. Peanut Butter and Mayonnaise - Hey!  Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!  My Dad introduced this one to me as a kid -- and it has always been my favorite go-to, quick sandwich.  I took a lot of grief from other (more traditional) kids in the cafeteria as a child, but I stuck with my PB&Mayo!  (Tom has never quite gotten past my eating this particular combo either . . .)  (On good, old white bread.  Of course. . .)

How about YOU?  What's your favorite sandwich?

I'd eat every one of them, but might struggle with #10 as well! Definitely going to try #9 - the bacon did the trick. Doug is the hot turkey master too. Happy TO!


PB & Mayo, huh? I'll try it but only because I love ya. I'm with you on everything else, though, especially #6.


My grandfather ate some different "peanut butter and" (tomato, honey, bacon, pickles, onion...) sandwiches, but I don't think even he ate pb & mayo. Number 7 is my absolute favorite!


The PB and mayo combo has never occurred to me, but I'm considering it.


OMG! You are the first person (other than me) who loves a PB & M! No jelly for this girl! BTW--welcome home!


Your last one reminds me of a friend who used to bring Marmite sandwiches to university when we did our masters degrees. I kept blaming her of bringing those just so she will have it all for herself....

And now I want a falafel! :)


I'm going to try your tuna with jalapeno! All of your sandwiches sound yummy to me!


We used to eat peanut butter with mayo too as kids! But it might have been miracle whip for us. And we sometimes added pickles too!

Welcome back, Kym!
BLT has my vote!
My husband loves peanut butter, mayo and banana sandwich!
It's surprisingly good.


Interesting selection! My stomach has been growling ALL DAY with these posts. I can't believe how many good sandwiches. To top it off, I just read a brilliant post where someone included ICE CREAM SANDWICHES!


as always, a fun - and diverse ;-) - list! it's hard to choose a favorite, but right this second, I'd say avocado and tomato with pesto mayonnaise on lightly toasted whole grain. (and geez, now I'm hungry and it's nearly bedtime!)


What a great list! My dad and I used to eat slightly unusual sandwiches. Both were made on white bread with butter. He would put sliced onions on his and I would put wavy plain potato chips on mine. A little weird, I know! :)
