The "Everything-in-my-fridge" sandwich.

News from the British Sandwich Association! Jeez, I've lived a sheltered life, I never knew there was a British association just for sandwich makers!



As for my favourite sandwich.....that would have to include a thick wodge of hummus, with tomatoes, onion, lettuce, green olives...drool. On thick wholemeal bread, of course.



(I had close-to for lunch. Some wholemeal bread, and a nice big helping of freshly made hummus to dip it into...)

Cheezly, Marmite and Red Onion sandwich:



Spread a bit of margarine on two slices of wholemeal bread

Spread a thin layer of Marmite on the margine

Cut razor thin slices of Cheezly Mature Red Cheddar style vegan cheese, not too much., and place on marmite

Finely chop fresh red onion, just a sprinkling, to add to sandwich

Top and eat.

My fave sandwich when I was in the UK last summer was no doubt the fritter on a roll with salt and vinegar from the chippy down the road from our flat. Oh man am I craving it now! No one sells potato fritters here, and I had never even heard of them before going to Glasgow!

I've never had an avocado sandwich, but as luck would have it, I bought 4 baby avocados today....so I'll be trying your sandwich in the next few days.

Ah, banana sandwiches....I'm so busy (for busy, read lazy) that most lunchtimes, if there is bread and a banana in the house, it's generally all I have time (read - can be bothered) to do.



I love banana sandwiches!

Hummus & red grape

veggie sausage, spinach and wholegrain mustard

nutroast, tomato & english mustard

peanut butter/cashew butter & banana

grilled tofu, artichoke hearts & vegan pesto



That's all I can think of off the top of my head. It's amazing to think how many sanwiches I've made over the years and yet I can;t remember them. I also like sprouted things added to pretty much any sandwich. Rye bread can make some sanwiches awesomer too.

...... i was disturbed and shocked to not see a marmitey sandwich in that list. <- see!



and why why WHY do so many people persist in eating egg and cress sandwiches, when they clearly stink out everything and everyone in an entire mile radius around them, and put you on the receiving end of the annoyance of poor fumigated passers-by/co-workers/family/friends. did these people learn NOTHING in primary school? or do they shamefully scoff them secretly in a sealed room like the pariahs that they should well be thought of as?

I love sandwiches!



Lettuce, salad cream (vegan friendly Sainsbury's low fat), tomato, cucumber, spring onion and green sweet pepper.



Grated vegan cheese (Sheese strong Chedder), tomato and loads of black pepper.



Hummus, mushroom, onion and tomato.




Are you sure this is art, not vandalism?

What is salad cream?

Who needs sleep when we've got love?
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?

its sort of like mayo, only a billion times better. same consistancy as ketchup, tart like tartar sauce, nice tangy kick from the vinegar, but mustardy, creamy and well-rounded at the same time, not at all wobbly, generally awesome.

^ I was supprised by the vegan salad cream too, its not bad, there's something about it that's not quite perfect... but in a coslaw/sandwhich/salad/pasta salad its really good. Gotta love sainsburys.



I saw this thread so I had a sandwhich today, it reminded me. I have this weird thing with sandwhiches where I think I'm going to hate them so I don't like eating them, but todays was nice it was red pepper hummus and grated carrot.



I love toasted sandwhiches though, mushroom garlic and baked beans = love.

For a toasted sandwich, it has to be either avocado or honey and peanut butter. Sooo good!

- Peanut butter and jelly sandwich (I used to like bacon on mine, but I've yet to try veggie bacon and I doubt that I will...)

- "California" sandwich (avocado, sprouts, cheese, tomato, mustard) with BBQ kettle chips crushed on the sandwich

- Roasted red pepper and cheese panini

- Burnt cheesetoast sandwich (blackened bread, two slices of cold American cheese) < Don't ask me where this one came from, this is just how I ate sandwiches as a kid, and it was a textural wonder. Best if you let the burnt bread cool as completely as you can so it doesn't affect the coldness of the cheese when you put it on.



Most Complicated/Theoretically Mind-Blowing Sandwich. Okay, so we made this pasta from Pioneer Woman last night:





Our only changes were that we used tricolor spiral pasta and added mushrooms because, well, we eat mushrooms in everything.



I served this with crunchy parmesan garlic bread, and ended up eating most of my pasta on the garlic bread with a little bit of Italian salad on top. I spent half of the meal thinking about what a completely mind-blowing sandwich this pasta would make. If anyone tries it, let me know.



The pasta is pretty amazing by itself, coincidentally.

The one I had today was very nice:

hummous, slices of red & yellow pepper, rocket leaves and sundried tomato

on brown bread

bought it in the library cafe; it was the only suitable thing I could see! everything else was meat or cheese.

I think it'd be good in wraps too, ill be making it myself certainly!

if he's a scot, i'm suprised he'd want to be referred to as 'british', and tarred with the same brush as the rest of the uncivilised lot round there.



i wouldn't worry about it though- its gotta be done, the chip buttie consumption. almost medicinal really.

He's kinda special that Scot..lol It annoys him that other Scots seem to deviate from the Britishness of it all. I think he secretly wants to be English...(Although he'd kill me if he heard me say that! ) If you'd hear him speak, you'd realize right away that he sounds nothing like a Scot, even though he was raised near Glasgow. The rest of his family have Scottish accents...I don't understand where he gets his accent from!

An Irn Bru sandwich?



Well I'll give him that much, he loves his Irn Bru. Come to think of it, I kinda want some now. I'd have to pay $2.19 plus tax and deposit for a 500ml bottle at Superstore! Such a ripoff!!
