What are some new sandwiches I can try?

Asked by lrk (757 points ) May 5th, 2010

Due to an accumulation of college meal points I can only use in one location, I have to buy about 22 sandwiches within the next 18 days.

(I don’t have to, but if I don’t do this, they’ll go to waste, and the sandwiches are pretty top-notch.)

I usually only get two types of sandwiches here:
* Cibatta with guacamole and dab of sriacha on one side, and chipotle mayo on the other side
* Mozzarella
* Parmesean
* Spinach
* Tomatoes
Grilled for a few minutes.

OR
* Tomato wrap
* Guacamole
* Cheddar cheese
* Diced Chicken
* Salsa
* Lettuce

I don’t like turkey or olives. The sandwich bar includes most things a sandwich bar should include, including salad dressings. Breads include most normal breads, plus cibatta, focaccia, and wraps.

I’d like to try some new things. Any favorite sandwiches of yours?

Salad recipes are also welcome (I can put most of the ingredients into a salad instead of a sandwich.)

You are in college and can’t figure out which sandwich you want to eat?? Do you have any homework I can work on for you too while I am at it?

Ham and Swiss works for me! Make that Black Forest Ham, French Swiss, 2 leaves of fresh bib lettuce with a light coating of cracked mustard on thick sliced Multi Grain please!

What about roasted eggplant with roasted red peppers, olives and a garlicky mayonnaise?

Take your diced chicken, mix with celery, chopped walnuts (or cashews), diced apple (or halved grapes) and sprinkle with curry powder for a curried chicken salad, which makes a wonderful sandwich.

What @Cruiser said… and your mother let you out of the house womb so woefully unprepared for life outside?

Someone should make a little documentary about your quest: 22 Sandwiches, 18 Days :)

I like reubens.

Liverwurst with Swiss cheese, onions and mustard. On Rye Bread.

@ChazMaz And I was worried about my breath having an odor.

CMaz's avatar

LOL Sometimes you just have to let go and live it up. :-)

Brie cheese, sliced apple and grapes cut in half makes a really lovely sandwich

@Adirondackwannabe I love reubens. The Reuben, my favorite sandwich and the most noble of all sandwiches. :)

partyparty's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe can you tell me what reubens is please?

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@partyparty if your idea of a lovely sandwich is Brie, sliced apple and grapes, then you will NOT like a Reuben. Not a bit.

partyparty's avatar

@CyanoticWasp Aw pleeeezzee tell me what a Reuben is!!

Reuben sandwich: A week after you eat it, you’re hungry again.

Ingredients:

rye bread
mayonnaise or Thousand Island dressing
corned beef (Lean from a corned brisket is best, according to my grandmother)
sauerkraut
Swiss cheese
Preparation:

Spread 2 slices of rye bread lightly with mayonnaise or Thousand Island dressing. Put a layer of sauerkraut over one slice, then top with a slice of corned beef then a slice of Swiss cheese. Top with the second slice, mayonnaise side down. Butter outside of reuben sandwich lightly with soft butter or margarine and toast on a griddle or grill, turning to brown evenly.

@partyparty There you go. I make them with pastrami, turkey, whatever I feel like. You can grill them or broil them. Just get a lot of napkins ready, the more mess the better the sandwich.

I have nothing to offer, but, I’m following this question. Yummeh!

Great sandwich ideas!

partyparty's avatar

@gailcalled @Adirondackwannabe Oh many thanks for that. It sounds like a whole meal to me rather than a sandwich. But delicious. I am going to try it myself.

lillycoyote's avatar

@partyparty and @Adirondackwannabe This question is becoming an Ode to the Reuben. Turkey reubens can be pretty good. I used to eat them before I started eating red meat again. There was a place here that used to make a fabulous one, with slices of roasted turkey breast cut from the bone. Yum!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@partyparty It is a meal. One with a few chips is enough for me.
@lillycoyote Ode to the Reuben would make a good name for a band.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I hear that Road Reuben is a pretty good ’meat du jour’ sandwich in Kentucky.

Grilled chicken, pepperoni, provolone cheese, and a little bit of creamy Italian grilled into a wrap. When I was on Atkins, I used to make a “pizza” with those toppings on a toasted 7 carb tortilla.

SamIAm's avatar

a simple sliced chicken breast, mayo, lettuce, tomato, provolone if you like, and some potato chips is delicious!!! how about egg salad with some red onion and mayo? i also like grilled cheese with a little garlic powder and sliced tomatoes.

filmfann's avatar

Peanut Butter, Salami, and Mayo.

lillycoyote's avatar

Cream cheese, sliced tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts on toasted whole wheat bread. Really, it’s good.

poofandmook's avatar

of course I also love a nice thinly sliced tomato sandwich with mayo on slightly toasted bread.

PandoraBoxx's avatar

Roast beef, provolone and horseradish on whole wheat with lettuce and tomato.
Grilled tomato, bacon, cheese, spinach.
Grilled pimiento cheese sandwich
Lox, bagel, cream cheese
Grilled tuna and cheese on raisin bread

filmfann's avatar

@poofandmook My brother swears that is the best sandwich ever.

lillycoyote's avatar

@filmfann and @poofandmook I guess that would be a T? A BLT without the B and the L?

gailcalled's avatar

There are also wonderful possibilities without the bread; you can used grilled chanterelle mushrooms or large slices of tomatoes as carriers.

poofandmook's avatar

@lillycoyote: I just like it when the tomato guts mix with the mayo. That’s my favorite part of a BLT.

lillycoyote's avatar

@poofandmook That is the best part, with the bacon adding a little snap of flavor and the bread being merely a tomato and mayo delivery system. I’m not sure what the lettuce is for.

poofandmook's avatar

I usually pick off most of the lettuce because it’s useless LOL

filmfann's avatar

@poofandmook I am not a lettuce fan, but it makes all the difference in a salami sandwich.

If we’re on the health food kick, the Monte Cristo is pretty good too. Triple layered sandwich, usually turkey, ham and whatever else you want, dipped in egg batter and grilled. A cardiologist’s dream.

Coloma's avatar

I worked in an eclectic little bakery/cafe once and this sandwich recipe was a big hit.

Mix either one cup canned white chicken meat or fresh diced chicken breast with:

2–3 tablespoons of Caesar dressing and 1–2 tespoons light mayo

add ½ cup diced red grapes, ¼ cup chopped celery and a handful of slivered almonds

mix well and stuff into peta bread pockets with shredded roamine lettuce.

Very good!

This was the $8 house fav.! ;-)

partyparty's avatar

@Coloma Wow that sounds delicious!!

sakura's avatar

tuna mayonaise, gerkins, pringles and cheese toasted
I love melted cheese with branston pickle (but not sure if you can get that in the states!)
Dairylea and salad cream mmm!!
grilled aubergine, red peppers, and chicken

Coloma's avatar

I also love mock BLT’s.

Toasted bread with lite mayo, sprinkle liberally soy based Bacon Bits and slather on thinly sliced tomatos, lettuce and sliced avacado.

Delicious and lowcal too.

Can drop the avacado for lowest calories, but, no way I’m giving up my avacados. haha
