As I am sitting here on the East Coast awaiting the fury of Winter Storm - what are we on now? Q? Rocky? Xerxes? - I can't help thinking about sandwiches. There are so many good ones out there and the possible combinations are virtually endless.

The most important element of any sandwich is the foundation - or the bread. Whether it's a thick slice of whole wheat, a nice deli style pumpernickle, soft pita, hoagie roll or tortilla - the bread makes the sandwich.

Next apply the mortar - mustard, mayo, vinaigrette, hummus, BBQ sauce - something to keep the ingredients together and enhance flavor.

Now for the structure! Meat! Cheese! Veggies! Any or all of the above. Pile it on!

Just off the top of my head here are some personal favorites:

Italian Sub - crusty roll, brown mustard, mortadella, genoa salami, prosciutto, muenster, LTO, oil & vinegar. Hot or cold, doesn't matter.

Chicken Salad Club - triple decker on rye, white meat chicken salad, bacon, lettuce, tomato.

Grilled Cheese with bacon and tomato - enough said.

One of my personal favorites that I used to make at a restaurant I worked at was a BLT made with this incredible bacon-tomato bread that we got from a local bakery. We'd toast that then slap on some avocado mayonnaise, a couple or five slices of crispy pancetta, a slab of romaine and thick sliced roma tomatoes. To. Die. For.

So, my question to you is: What is your favorite sandwich!
Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

LOL on the topic, when I get the munchies I have a weak spot for peanut butter with blueberry preserves.

For regular sandwiches I mix it up but I think my fave is the black pepper turkey breast from Hillshire Farms combined with horseradish cheese on beefsteak rye, maybe throw on a couple slabs of hard salami. Yum!

One of my favorite sandwiches to make is a grilled turkey & cheese. I use 9 grain bread since it grills firm. The turkey is cracked pepper shaved very thin. The cheese is usually a combination of English cheddar, German Butterkase, and either Irish Erin Gold or Danish Havarti. Excellent stuff.

Rueben here as well, though I have had a few that weren't all that great.

The Mesquite Chicken at Quizno's is divine.

I order it on Rosemary Parmesan bread. On it is marinated chicken, olives, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon, and ranch. Then the whole thing is lightly toasted, and finally crisp lettuce added to it. (You're supposed to have onions on it too, but yuck! Why would I do that?)

I recommend it to everyone here.

Yeah Quiznos is yummy, lots of good stuff there. We had one in town but unfortunately it was owned by the same person who ran the local comic shop (Moondance - where I got my start). They both went under.
