“Patty melt.”

“Probably a turkey sandwich. I like turkey.”

“I like grilled cheese.”

“The Beach Club from Jimmy John’s. It’s so good. If you go at 2 in the morning, the bread is all hot because they just made it. It’s like a salad on a sandwich.”

Multi. Thanks for the advice man! Actually a good sandwich is the ole fried baloney take. Just take a couple of sticks of butter, throw it on a frying pan with a pack oscar meyer, and then move it over to a couple of slices of bread. Guzzle down a litre of dr pepper and then make your way to bed, Flip on the history channel (or the the national geogrphic channel) and fall happily asleep, occasioanly waking to the good parts of the show. Somewhere out there, there is a girl for me. I truly believe this.

Tried slapping a few mosquitoes with the bread, then eating it? You need some protein camper!

My favorite is called a bread sandwich, not necessarily for taste, but for the ease by which they can be made. All you gotta do is slap two pieces of bread together and pretend there is something in the middle. Though they are kinda dry, they are better if you wash it down with a little lukewarm water from the tap.

Yes, the best at spreading illness. Both my wife and I have gotten seriously sick from Yello Sub twice. They will never get my business again, and I do my best to let everyone know just how dirty and disgusting that place is.

JE007, You may be on to something there, about New Orleans. I'm not a true sandwich fan myself. It takes a really amazing bread to entice me, and if it's that good, it should be toasted with real butter, etc. But to N.O. Anthony Bourdain went there for one of his shows. (I just couldn't picture those restaurants, fully operational but empty, not what I remember at all ). But he went to a local place, and they made these sandwiches..also the not on the menu special one. I can't remember exactly, but it seems it had fried shrimp, this and that, the combination sounded out of this world , fall off your chair in bliss wonderful!

Funny thing is, a while back, right in Beautiful Downtown Lawrence, Kansas was one of the top spammers on the planet who was NOT on rokso; don't ask me why not; I dunno but he got pi**sed off at the local Looney Lefty site and was going to DDOS it until I persuaded him not to.

Interestingly enough, I have posted links to "Modern Drunkard" on several threads on this very forum, referencing the alcohol intake of Winston Churchill, FDR and Joseph Stalin.

Because certain posters, not to be named but otherwise known as "Snap_pop_no_crackle", "Its_getting_warmer" and "The_Original_Bob"(Cyberthugs) have convinced many of you to not hit those links because they claim, in spite of the absence of any verifiable evidence, that I am some sort of internet spammer, which in point of fact, I am not, nor have I ever been.

But you see, it's on the internet, so it must be true.

Look on my works, Ye Mighty and despair!

I was afraid someone was going to call into question my non-metrosexual lifestyle. Esquire sent me an offer in the fall where I could get 2 years for $12. I figured at the worst, it was good bathroom reading. While it isn't as bad as I feared, there has to be twice the amount of ads as actual content. And, I'm not really into $400 jeans and $2500 suits in their fashion section.

In short, National Geographic and Modern Drunkard Magazine are the only subscriptions I need.

The Julie's Biergarten and Delikatessen Famous Reuben Sandwich, named by the Johnson County Sun Newspaper in 1980 as the best Reuben sandwich in the Metro area!

Two slices lightly toasted Rye or Pumpernickel (Pullman style loaves are preferred with bread no more than 1/2' thick).

3 oz, lean corned beef.

I thick slice Swiss cheese.

3 oz. strained Sauer Kraut.

Gulden's Kosher Mustard.

Spread mustard on first slice of toasted bread, lay down corned beef smoothly and evenly.

Spread another bit of mustard on top of the beef.

Lay down Sauer Kraut smoothly and evenly on top of corned beef.

Lay down Swiss Cheese on top of kraut, then the top piece of bread.

Heat on both sides till the cheese starts to melt in a lightly buttered skillet or on a grille, making sure that the sandwich does not deform or burn.

Do not even commit the atrocity of applying Thousand Island dressing! It is an abomination and food abuse!

Serve with large slice Kosher Dill, chips and your favourite beverage.

Dark beer goes especially well with this sandwich.

Enjoy!

A Yellow Sub Green Turkey or California Club (which may not be on the menu any more) are the best "goin' out to eat" sandwiches.

At home--too many to choose from, but the bread must be chewy, whole-grainy, and fresh. No white bread, thank you. Home-made bread with wheat germ & sunflower seeds is best. Drizzle it with good olive oil, load it up with rare roast beef, cream cheese, sprouts, fresh home-grown tomato slices, fresh lettuce, avocado slices, sprouts, capers, a little hot sauce, and anything else that seems compatible.

Or maybe a reuben..

Or an open-faced turkey sandwich smothered with homemade gravy...

It really depends on the mood and time of the year.

Preferably fresh, not one left over from five years ago.

I'd go with BLT and French Dip -- oops, its 2003, so I guess we need to call it a "Freedom" Dip.

blue: Nick Danger Spam Sandwich -- classic! But wouldn't it need to have a lot more than just a slice of baloney? Or would it just be Spam served between slices of baloney? Either way, help yourself. I think I'll pass.
