I haven't eaten any sandwiches in years, and being diagnosed as a diabetic last year that isn't likely to change. But when I was into sandwiches more, my favorite was a hot open turkey sandwich with gravy with either mashed potatoes, potato pancake, or rice on the side. Yum.

Nothing beats a medium rare, 1/3+ lb, bacon cheese burger. Lettuce, tomato, lots of mayo. And a side of skin-on fries or onion rings.

Washed down with a real coca cola, and free refills.

I would have to say the bacon cheeseburger. For the traditional sandwich, I am a big fan of Italian style. When Blimpie was still around (well, moreso than today), I LOVED the Blimpie's Best (bigger bite, of course!). Jersey Mike's has one that is similar.

Up until about a year ago, we had a family owned deli (crazy New Yorker too with the attitude to go with it!) that did a toasted Italian that was DELICIOUS!!! He also made a German Potato Salad that was fabulous. Unfortunately, his landlord was going to bump his rent more than 30%, so he closed up shop and it broke my heart. That man put his heart and soul into his business (and hadn't had a vacation in 13 years!) and he just couldn't deal with the costs anymore.

Grilled cheese with either grape jelly or strawberry preserves on top. Haven't had one in years though.

When I lived in NYC, it was pastrami or corned beef from 2nd Ave Deli and 15 years ago a sandwich was $17.00, can't imagine the price now. Here in Lima it would be chicarrone (pork belly) with sweet potato, marinated onions and spearmint leaves on a hard roll or I could go down the block to Juicy Lucy for a what else (Juicy Lucy) made from prime angus beef, cheddar, swiss, bacon,pickles,onion rings and mayo.

Add a fried egg on the burger and I'm right there with you. [If you haven't tried it...]

That's something they used (and may still do) to do in Australia some 55+ years ago...not bad at all.

Our favorite local gourmet burger place has them, called "The Aussie" - now I know why. Also a standard menu item at Red Robin known as the "Royal Red Robin" IIRC.

Some of my favorites:

Green Chile Cheeseburger
Peanut Butter and Banana
Chicken Salad
Roast Beef
Pork Tenderloin
BBQ
Ham and Cheese

And of course I love Shrimp Po'boys. If I'm traveling in the South or near the coast, I always order these if on the menu.

But I eat more burritos than sandwiches.

One that I like and is a little odd sounding is a peanut butter burger. Complete with chunky PB, bacon, onion add others toppings as you desire.

In the summertime, you can't beat a tomato sandwich made with thick slices of garden-ripe tomato, sprinkled with a little fresh basil, some cracked pepper, and some mayo on a couple slices of your favorite brand of white bread.

I don't eat sandwiches any more, but I break my locarb/nobread rule once every summer when the fresh tomatoes are coming out of the garden and I make myself a BLT. Nothing better.

I hate to be so boring, but practically the only bread I eat any more is my own homemade sourdough, and when I make a sandwich (seldom, but I love 'em), it will normally be some kind of meat that came off my BGE.

If I'm out at a restaurant, I generally stick with the best burger on offer.

When tomatoes are summer fresh, I'm good with BLT's.
