Favourite Sandwich Fillings Around the Country

Other posting that don't really fit into a catagory. Odd web sites you have found, or anything peculiar. If you don't think it will fit into the rest of the forum bung it here.

Favourite Sandwich Fillings Around the Country

Postby ladyDeWint » Mon May 14, 2012 11:20 am

It is part of a British culinary tradition handed down over hundreds of years.

And it seems nothing unites our nation quite like a hearty chicken sandwich.

We get through more than 55,600 tons of them every year, nearly three times as much as our next preferred sandwich – cheese.

My faxourite used to be sausage and tinned tomato. :-)

Cheese & coleslaw on brown with mustard (English of course) :-)

There's a 'snack' I sometimes buy at the local bakery: it's called a 'cheeseymite' roll with a topping of cheese and Vegemite !! It's filling and tasty when you're in a rush - but not to everybody's taste though.

This thread is making my mouth water. My other favourite is simply a ham sandwich with hot English mustard. Hard to beat.

One of the drawbacks living in Spain is the lack of decent bread for sandwiches. The baguette type bread is lovely but sliced bread is like cardboard and the size of a postage stamp. We can get British sliced bread but frozen and at a hugely inflated price :-x

No chance of a split tin, cottage loaf or a large bloomer ( :oops: )

In Australia, even at an ordinary supermarket, we have an enormous range of breads to choose from. So we're lucky - though we don't have anything quite as good as an irish granary bread.
There's a baker in Canberra (originally from Croatia) called Danny who makes magnificent breads, especially a 'grain sourdough'.

I like a nice salad sandwich on wholemeal bread, nothing fancy.

Can't complain about the bread. We have good bread in Switzerland and a good choice. My taste is reduced to wholemeal because of sugar, although today I treated myself to a couple of slices of ciabatta which is very white. Favourite filling for a sandwich is egg and tomato with pepper on the tomato, otherwise am partial to smoked salmon with plenty of echalottes and dill.

Cheese and tomato, cheese and mustard pickle or mixed salad and mayonaise. One inch thick bread and plenty of filling. :-)
Ask yourself why, then post the answer.

There's a lovely little cafe in NSW at Bombala called 'Linga Longa' (!!) where they serve the most magnificent salad sandwiches. I always have it in grain bread with some ham.
