To some, a sandwich is a quick and easy lunch. Put something between two slices of bread and bam, you’re ready to go.
Those people should never be trusted, either inside the kitchen or out.
The Sandwich is something that can rise above and beyond its ingredients. In no situation is the term “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” more applicable. To make a Sandwich right, you have to work at it. It takes preparation. Time. And the willingness to get your hands dirty.
There is no “perfect sandwich”. A vegetarian would not be happy with one of my…creations. But there are ideal sandwiches for each individual. I made such a sandwich today.
Since I ate my sandwich too quickly for it to be photographed, let me paint you a picture….with words.
First layer, bread. Then yellow mustard and a mild cheddar, sliced thin. Next, a layer of bacon, with some more, thinly sliced cheese. Then some roast beef and turkey. Another layer of cheese. Next, add a second layer of bacon. More cheese and mustard. Bread slice.
The final step involved frying the whole kit and kaboodle in bacon grease.
I’m not writing out this recipe so that you can make it yourself.
I’m writing it here to brag.
It was delicious.
