My favorite sandwich

My favorite sandwich is made with salad mix. I buy the bagged salad with carrots and cabbage in it. I put Catalina dressing on one slice of bread and put a handful of salad on top of the bread. Then I put a couple slices of ham and then top with more salad and more Catalina. Then out the other slice of bread on. I've done it in sub rolls too. It's just awesome. I made a smoothie of sorts but it didn't bind together like I wanted it too. It was still good. I put the leftover coffee in the blender with about 2/3 cup if Bailey's Irish Cream coffee creamer and a bunch of ice. I added my favorite sweetener to it. It was so good! Even though it didn't bind like ice cream it was good. When I make my fruit smoothies I use frozen fruit. It all binds together really good. It's a great treat. Please tell me about some of your great sandwiches and other stuff you create like shakes and stuff.

In the winter when tomatoes have no taste I love to put pepper strips, red or yellow bell peppers in my meat sandwiches. I like them grilled or even raw. Like you I like lots of interesting veggies in my salad and a sometimes fresher taste than the usual mayo, mustard or ketchup. You can also do thin slices of pumpkin bread, a slice of turkey and cranberry sauce for a different meal.

Hey now! I love pumpkin bread. I've not made any in years. That sounds wonderful. I will put the makings for it on my list for next month's shopping. Thank you so much.

My favorite sandwich is a very simple grilled cheese with tomato soup. I would use grated marble cheese and put my favorite butter. Then I either make tomato soup from scratch or open a can depending on my mood.

Oh so good! I live cheese toast. I make it in the broiler with extra sharp Vermont white cheese.

I like my hamburgers with thousand island salad dressing on it. and I like to add spicey mustard and honey mustard together to put on my pastrami sandwiches. It is so deleicious. I like the sweet and sour and spicy and sweet mixtures. We haven't made any new and different smoothies or shakes. Our favorite is berry. We take blue berries, strawberries, raspberries and it turns out a lovely color and is delicious.

Your burger and sandwich sound great. I will be doing like you when I get paid again and stock up in stuff I like. In so glad for these ideas I'm getting.

Hiya PQ, Fried Ham and Egg Sandwiches but mainly salad sandwiches are my favourites I don´t eat many fried things. Cheese on Toast if I can if not cheese slices with tomato and lettuce huge sandwiches my favourite snack again if I can. Drink well I drink mainly mint tea or red tea and that´s it I keep away from Coca Cola and other drinks that have too much sugar in them if I can help it. I like your sandwiches too but none of mine would eat them as they are not very struck on tomatoes and lettuce and greens even less. Mainly tuna fish and salami is their kind of thing.xxx

Hello Pointlessquestions, Love tuna fish on anything really but they make such great sandwiches with other things like fresh tomato and lettuce and and any dressing that you might want to add on to it. Personal choice for us all. Thank you love smoked ham as well I don´t know if they do the smoked ham where you are the same will try to post a picture of it from one of my pages from before.xxx

I love tuna and sweetcorn sandwiches. They're my favourite. I used to eat them all the time as a kid and I still love them. Bread, canned tuna, sweet corn, mayo and some spring onion to go inside. The perfect combination for me :)

Oh yes! Sounds wonderful! We love BLTs here too. We buy them at Sonics sometimes. I love those rolls. I like Kaizer rolls too. I use thick bread. The kind they sell for garlic toast. I just gave me an idea to make garlic toast and then make the BLTs in them. That would make my family really happy.

My favorite sandwich is turkey ham (because I can't eat pork ham), lettuce, tomatoes, red onion slices, cheese and mayonnaise on dark rye bread. Wish I had one now! I am also partial to poached salmon sandwiches. I'm getting hungry.

I've had vanilla ice cream with orange juice over it but never blended. If I get some sugar free ice cream I'll do that one. Thanks for the idea. I live all the ideas I'm getting from my friends here.

All do good. I really miss my Ruben. I'll need to get the stuff when I shop again. I mixed tuna and egg salad the other day and that wasn't good.

The sandwich sounds good. It definitely is different but making a different sandwich makes the sandwich better.

In my country mushroom burgers have become popular. So I do cook my own mushroom burger like how a normal meat burger is made with any spices I would like to add. I would place it on the fridge. This would last me almost a week of snack at work. If there's some more left then I mix it with fired rice at the end of the week. By this time it has become very tasty.Nyum, nyum!:)

That sounds interesting. What holds the mushrooms together. I take it they are ground. I have heard of mixing them with ground beef or turkey burger. Hope to hear from you again on this thread.

this reminds me of the thai and western combination i tried once. i put in some cheese and plain sausage inside the bread which were coated with a paste of garlic,ginger, green chillies all of the fried in fish oil, a typical thai base. it was really spicy and good. i put some water melon and mint leaves in a smoother and made a shake for myself. a nice breakfast. give it a try. hope you will like it

I like salad sandwhiches too. Real mayonaise and romaine lettuce and some salt and pepper. Has to be pumpernickle bread though. or dark rye. I don't drink many smoothies, but I have used soy powder mixed with OJ and milk. whip it together and it has a nutty orange julius taste. But I found out soy can make you fat so I stopped using it.

Salad sandwiches are really good. We don't buy real mayo anymore. We buy that low fat version. It's no where bear as good as real mayo. I miss it. I like real salad dressings. I'm not skimping on them.

That sandwich sounds good! I had a cod fish sandwich for the first time at Red Robin and it had the cabbage and carrot mix on it. It didn't have much sauce and it was hard to tell if it was tarter sauce - maybe it's their special recipe. I would have preferred more sauce but it was still delicious!!

Hi pointless I love an old fashioned tuna melt I mix my tuna with mayo and onions cut up really fine and I put this on buttered bread and I add block cheese extra old is my favourite, and I put in the oven about 375 degrees until the cheese melts yummy all this talk of food is making me hungry.

I have lots if tuna and mayo but no onions and no cheese. I live the hard cheese from Vermont. Extra sharp. I guess that is what you call block cheese? Oh your tuna melt sounds wonderful. I'm glad I'm getting all these good ideas. Yours is wonderful. I could make it in my panini maker.

Hi pointless yes extra sharp is like the extra old, and yes you gave me an idea I have one of those George Forman cooking grills I do not have a panini maker but that sounds great.

My favorite sandwich is made with egg and the other one is spam. ^_^ I boiled eggs, cut them into pieces, mixed some mayonnaise, throw in some cheese and viola! Egg sandwich! I also love spam sandwich. I slice the spam, coated with sugar and put in the pan, once its kinda brown or the sugar is melted, take it and put in a bread, add some cheese, and there goes my Spam Sandwich :) Its usually my hubby's lunch for work too. Its easy and quick to make :)

I like spam and egg too. I fry the spam but never heard of putting sugar on it to fry it. I might try broiling some with sugar sometime just to try it.
