OK folks, it's time to divulge your secret sandwich favourite. We all have one and while some might seem unorthodox, they taste great just the same.
And no, I don't mean those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches your Mom used to make for school lunches.
This all started in my mind when I watched the noon hour news on CTV today where they always have a home economist on from Sobey's grocery stores. Today she made a sandwich that I just have to try.
She toasted two slices of buttered whole grain bread, then mixed apricot jam with a liberal dash of tabasco sauce and spread it on one slice. Then she piled fresh apple, thinly sliced on top of the apricot jam. On the other slice, she spread a thick layer of smooth peanut butter and slapped it all together. Now that sounds like my kind of sandwich.
A favourite I have always loved is also made with fresh whole grain bread, one slice spread with honey, then a layer of tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and peanut butter on the other slice is delicious, to me anyway.
Anyone else care to share their sandwich secrets that stray from the norm or traditional?
I can hardly wait to try some that I just know are favourites of ehMacers.
Tomato and (regular yellow) mustard. Add fresh ground pepper or Urfa Pepper to taste. That's it.
I was going to post a thread/rant about the bastardization of shawarma sandwiches. There is no local real Shawarma/ Falafel in my town, so whenever I am in the city- shawarma. I'm Canadian born and bred, I don't know the ins and outs of ethnic street food, but I know when my Shawarma is being 'Canadianized'. When I get Shawarma, I want authentic Shawarma. I don't really know what exactly should be in a Shawarma, so I rely on the guy behind the counter to just make it authentic. Lately, I find I'm having to monitor things a little too closely. Lately, they're trying to put mayo on my shawarma, and iceberg lettuce. Mayo! And at the end, when they ask me if I want the spices, or 'hot'- now I'm getting Franks Hot Sauce squeezed on top. ARRGGHH!! Franks?
I just want real authentic Shawarma. If I wanted fake shawarma or falafel, I'd go to one of the conglomerate Pita joints and get pineapple, sprouts, mushrooms, iceberg lettuce and Franks on my shawarma and falafel.
