anyway, i came on here to post about my excitement at finding ALFALFA SPROUTS in waitrose. guaranteed to make any sandwich a million times better (and healthier) i also got some rosemary and potato bread and some really nice tomatoes. damn, I LOVE SANDWICHES.
Yum!

I love sandwiches too. There is a lot to be said for being creative in terms of content, as well as the type of bread.

The nearest supermarket to where I live is a Waitrose (yay!). They do some very good freshly baked bread - so much so, that it is invariably all gone hours before the store closes! In fact, I am just back from there, having successfully obtained my favourite campagne loaf of bread. I like my bread to have some weight to it. Oh - and their tomatoes are good too - I currently like organic baby plum ones.

I do like Rosemary bread. The first time that I tried that was at Amy's Bread in New York. They also sold a sweeter, fennel and raisin bread which I also liked. They were both so good that you could eat them on their own.

Where do people stand on this:

All kinds of wrong, or simply a delicious filling which harks back to childhood (which is where I position myself on the scale).



It does look like puke though.

I've never got on with those things. Sandwich spreads are a great idea which never really come off in practice. Like trickle-down economics. Except for the great idea bit.

The "crispwich" is great. Pre-buttered bread and a bag of crisps. Genius!

The Lasagne sandwich makes me gag just thinking about it.

Sandwich spread - I remember liking it as a small child, but as a small child my idea of sandwich heaven was luncheon meat and salad cream so I don't think I was any too critical. As I remember it, it was just a sort of salty, vinegary, salad creamy stuff with mysterious bits of vegetable matter in it that yes, looked like sick. It probably still is. I think today the thoughts of sickwich would be too strong.

I always put crisps in my sandwiches if I can. A build your own crisp sandwich ... I think I'd probably like it, though I guess some idiot would try and live on them.

I think you want a normal filling as well as crisps, though, no? I don't like that Asda thing, unless it's about 60p.

Normally yes ... but if I only had 60p ...

The best crisp/sandwich combination in my opinion is salt n vinegar on a tuna mayo one. Seriously, try it.

I am a dufus. Interesting that my 'price point' is the same as Asda's.

You're quite wrong. It's McCoy's steak and onion on ham and emmenthal.

When I was at school, I used to nip over the road for a crusty roll (I would have said 'cob' back then of course, I'm using standard English here, to help people) with grated cheese, pickle and some proportion of a bag of Walkers Cheese and Onion stuck in. I still remember this fondly, even if I forget the name of the shop.

EDIT: I just looked on Google Streetview (I really should be getting on with my work) and it's no longer a sandwich shop, but half Chinese takeaway, half just takeaway ("Fish & Chips, Burgers, Kebabs"). Is this really progress? Agh.

I made the mistake of having Walkers 'Baked' crisps with my baguette today. Big mistake. There's no crisp satisfaction in those buggers.

inspired by this thread i decided, for the first time in several years, to augment my cream cheese and salmon baguette with some walkers ready salted. i immediately regretted this course of action as not only did i render the sandwich overly salty, it also failed to add the satisfying crunch experience which was already provided by the iceburg lettuce.

and thus, anorak ruined my life. THANX GUYS.

Only a young amateur pup would make the mistake of putting ready salted in a sandwich.

Ooohhh, Jamie. What will we do with you?! Eh?
