    What in your opinion makes the "perfect" sammie? In my humble opinion, I believe that a good old fashioned ham and cheese on rye is a tough act to follow. What say you?

    staying reasonable....

    blackforest ham, pepper jack cheese, mustard, toasted fifteen grain bread. have it once or twice a week when I work from home.

    maybe pushing it:

    either a pulled pork sandwich or a french dip, not sure if those count

    Maybe I'll revise my sandwich selection... A Carolina style pork bar-b-que sammich with cole slaw on it is a pretty tough act to follow too. Then there's the Oyster sammich or a soft-shell crab sammie.. So many choices. Life can be so hard... Even a PB & J with a glass of cold milk is a plus. Wow. This is pretty tough.

    The perfect sammich is the right bread to compliment the ingredients, with the proper ratio of filling to bread.

    Personal favorites: Homemade meatloaf (at the risk of being immodest, mine is faboo) on good bakery white bread with mayo. That really is the only way to eat meat loaf. Not terribly healthy, but a nice treat once in awhile.

    A BLT with Miracle Whip, the bacon with a bit of bite to it (not crunchy), fresh ripe tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, and a crunchy dill pickle on the side.

    Excellent pastrami on rye, with a real dill pickle.

    Made by anyone other than me. I ♥ wait staff people.

    Any sandwich can be the perfect sandwich if done right. Egg salad? Yummy. Shrimp po boy? Yum. Cheese steak ? Yum. Muffalotto? Yes siree.

    But my kid actually brought a sandwich home from work the other night that was prety damned tasty. He made it up, so it's not on the Pizaa Hutt menu.

    Boneless buffalo wings, provologne cheese, melted on their good sandwhich rolls then lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing. Damn good

    My fave, too, but I prefer the tangy zip of Miracle Whip. :)
