Hey everyone out there! So here's the deal: I want recipes for sandwiches, wraps, paninis, or anything you would qualify as sandwich material! I cook a lot, but I never vary this area, because I have my favorites so it's time for me to move on and try new things. It doesn't matter what it is: reuben, club, veggie, chicken salad, egg salad, double-decker triple cheese burger (yes burgers qualify), shrimp po'boy, anything that is sandwich like! If you're recipe's not obviously unique, because some just are not, tell me what makes it so great (special bread, bacon, do you add something to your mayo? what?). And if what makes it so great is homemade like the bread or whatever you add to make you're mayo get that smokey flavor-I want that recipe too! Obviously you're probably not going to read this and immediately reply because you don't want to dig out the recipe, unless you have it memorized, so get back to me whenever it's convenient for you-I'll be here. I'm not crazy I just want to try new things, and a lot of new things. I know ya'll are probably like she's insane wanting me to post a recipe(s), but guess what I bet that there's someone else on here that's always looking for great new recipes too, and sandwichs can be cheap and easy-cheap is good. So fork it over, or them, cause I'm hungry and I know ya'll are too!

For wraps a nice one is chicken, tomato,lettuce and a little mayonaise...when I go to a restaurant I like bruscchetta, and one restaurant near me which is a gourmet type restaurat has the bread in some way with a smokey flavour then with the tomato, cheese,onion, and what ever they put on it as oil is absolutely beautiful.

Sounds good! I love bruschetta too and it's so easy to do at home for parties or whenever. I especially love sundried tomatoes, marinated artichokes, roasted red pepper, and grilled eggplant. You can buy all of them packed in oil in the stores then just chop up fine, toast some sliced baguette and voila! It's great you should try it sometime. Oh, and a little fontina cheese makes it even better.

Yes I try the bruschettan in any restaurant that serves it but i really do like the one that does something to the bread to give it a smokey taste then they also have sliced tomato and a white cheese have it on the bresd as tomato cheses tomato along the bread, it really is the best and not so messy to eat either

Being a professional cook I can tell you that the smokey taste you're referring to is probably from their oven. You see, unlike your oven or mine, theirs gets used all day long so it's on and there's always something in there. Many times when it gets busy or its very slow the cook will forget the bread and it will burn. After this happening all the time no matter what you do to the oven it will always taste sort of smokey. For some reason the heat warps that burnt taste to a smokey one. It's also possible that they grilled their bread on a grated grill which will also give it a smokey taste. If you really prefer that and you have the time at home try firing up your grill, usually better served if you're also going to cook something else on it but throw some baguette slices on there see if that's to your liking.

I made this last night 2 slice bread toasted to crisp spread butter after toasting. filling cherry tomatoes sliced, shredded chicken, dice young cucumber, 1-2 hot chilies thinly sliced, salt and paper to taste. mix all with yogurt (replace mayonnaise for healthy reason) lay some baby romaine on a piece of the buttered toast put scoops of the filling on it than put on some romaine again and lastly the second buttered toast. Best to splash on some hot sauce or black paper sauce. Love it.

Thanks for responding! I'll have to try that out. I don't think I've ever combined butter and yogurt on one sandwich.

the butter is to make it more fatty and greasy in a good way

I´m making lots of sansdwichs now that _I live alone and I have become addicted to the computer. I like homemade mayo. It´s a complete different taste and I often put some cut up gren olives filled with sweet pepper. I love a sadwich made with that mayo, smoked ham cut VERY thin and slices of palm hearts. Another favorite is cold roast chicken or lamb (I like the legs, they taste better) with mayo And raw slices of sweet pepper (gren and red) Then there´s the melted cheese, smoked ham and chives. YUMMY!!! I´ll think of more later. Take care
