Pulpetti had this to say: "I was starving when I got home today [...] So, I fried two eggs and bacon and heated up a carrot bun in the pan. I spread some French mustard on the bun and put the bacon and some liver pate on the mustard. Then I put the fried eggs on top and placed the other half of the bun on the eggs. It was the motherfuckingest sandwich I ever did eat! I'd do it anytime again! Instead of memes about the music you loath or the weirdest habits you have we could have one with the best sandwiches you ate."
Now, as sandwiches go, I'm a Heikki-person (as opposed to a Helmi-person). This is a reference to the Blondie comic strip created by Chic Young, where the hubby Heikki (Dagwood) makes these rather towering sandwiches. I'll admit, I can't say for certain that Helmi (Blondie) actually makes and eats sandwiches which are substantially smaller ie. include only one item besides the actual bread and "butter", but I would hazard to guess so. Heikki just piles things on top of each other, thus constructing these massive sandwiches which are just utterly impossible to stuff into one's mouth. Or are they...?
But I digress. Best sandwich I've eaten. The simple tomato-cheddar-ham-mayonaise-lettuce-bacon one purchased from this little deli near the Central Park (either on the 6th or 7th Ave and btw 57th and 59th St; my guess on 6th and btw 57th &58th), eaten while watching people playing softball at the park. Then again, it might have something to do with the whole enchilada: new in town, nice springtime weather, hunger, Central Park, New York, NY... Certainly not the ingredients, as those are just about the mere basics to start from.
I quite like this one too: Cut big loafs of Hassania's (it's a bakery in Pori, our S-Market gets a load once a week) fresh Moroccan bread. Spread with "butter" and some horseradish cream. Hack some leak and mix with shrimp, mayo and stinky cheese. Dash of lemon on top, cover with another loaf of delicious Hassania bread.
Or something with eggs: Fry couple of eggs with some onion and mushroom. Spread your choice of bread with "butter" and top it with the said "omelette" and some ham (maybe spread with mustard) and some cheddar. Oh, and some chillisauce, too. Eggsies are also easily made-to-fit for buns when you use lettupannu. (I'm a bit uncertain here. In my book "räiskäle" is the large flapjack/pancake/whatever that covers the whole frying pan and "lettu" are the smaller ones that you have this handy pan with usually five small holes in it. Is this universally true or not?)
I also like sardines, preferably in tomato sauce, which Sari for some reason just loathes. Apparently it stinks. Fresh or toasted bread, sardines, dash of chillisauce (preferably strong and carlicky) and some cheese (occasionally stinky cheese, but most often emmental). Maybe something oniony as well.
I tend to stay clear of fresh veggies on my sandwich. Tomatoes tend to spread, cucumber is blaah and paprika (you can call it bell pepper or whatever, it's paprika) is just not for me. Lettuce is good. I do like pickled cucumber (or what the heck is suolakurkku?).
The biggest problem is the adding of little things like clams, shrimps, olives etc without some glue-element like mayo or somesuch spread. Things have a tendency to drop from the corner of the mouth
Hot patootie! Fried eggs, mushroom and bacon, all thrown on top of toasted bread with some tomato and basil. I better make me a sandwich right about now. Too much saliva on the keyboard.
