How about least favorite My mother made us bologna sandwiches for school lunches all through grammar school. I haven't had a bologna sandwich since, my stomach turns at the thought.

I gave them up as a teenager, but I still like hot dogs which are the same thing.

Crunchy stuff on top just has a better mouthfeel. I use to work at a national sandwich chain and this order is based on numerous studies they did to figure out what people like best. YMMV.
I'm sure you're right, and this is probably very good advice, but (meaning no offense to you personally) I have to vote for this as the most anal-retentive comment of the year so far.
Not all - pure practical advice. We like to smear avocado on the bread for some sandwiches - that provides a nice barrier against any soggy stuff. In the Jacques and Julia cookbook, they put the lettuce down first and last on the bun for a hamburger. The lettuce provides that barrier.

Interesting juxtaposition of posts - the whole purpose of the au jus is to create a soggy bread! And that's great when you want it, terrible when you don't.

Around here, a Thanksgiving tradition is leftover turkey with homemade apple smoked bacon, blanketed with some swiss or cheddar on a sourdough roll washed down with the latest vintage of slightly chilled homemade Chardonnay.

+1 Love em! I actually look more forward to them than the actual sit down meal!
My only caveat is that the cranberry sauce has to be the jelly type from the can, not any type of "fresh" cranberries which I really don't like!
(I really am a peasant at heart!)

I actually have to make a conscious effort to not do it when we are out in public, it isn't necessarily the easiest thing for me!

I had the BELT(Bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato) with cheddar cheese and mayo today. Yummy egg over easy, drippy and delicious.

Besides that the company was great, a few guys I used to w*rk with. I hadn't seen one in three years, he's still going a thousand miles an hour. I remember that feeling and realize it's harmful.

I get the Beef on a Weck every time I go to see the Sabres. Good sandwich but I always have to scrape the rock salt off the Weck! Must be 5 days worth of sodium on there.

Yes, it really is. I think some of us (including me) would have had a shorter lifespan had we not retired.

I have a couple of favorites:

- BLT - toasted sourdough bread (toasting the bread is mandatory for BLTs in my book.

- Pannino: whatever leftover meat we have in the house - chicken, beef, pork, whatever meat we had for dinner the night before, homemade tapenade, sliced tomato, basil leaves from the garden, mozzerella, parm, or swiss cheese.... grilled/pressed on our le creuset pannini pan.

- If going out - definitely the cod sandwich from Point Loma seafood. They make their own sourdough bread and tartar sauce... It's a high volume fish market so the fish is always super fresh.... YUM. Eat it outside overlooking the boats at the shelter island marina.

This pastrami from Katz's in NYC was $20, IIRC, and worth every cent (bowl of excellent pickles was complimentary).

IMG_20150425_144849176.jpg

W2R, love the po'boys in NOLA. Liked Domilises but I'm guessing there are better ones, what do you recommend?
As for muffellettas I don't think you can beat Butcher. Central Market was so-so IMHO.

We are not wild about Central Grocery muffulettas either. They are OK, but if we are right there and want a muffuletta without walking more than 50 feet, we go to Frank's Deli right next door.

My sincere, honest suggestion concerning po'boys? The most fun we ever have is going from restaurant to restaurant and doing our own comparison test. There are so many different varieties of "best", and unlike in most cities (IMO), in New Orleans good food is not hard to find. Every tourist seems to think that the first restaurant they hit is a terrific find. We think that the quality and freshness of the French bread is something to consider that many do not think of.

Yes, the bread is key, and I don't think you can get the same thing elsewhere.
Do try the muffuletta at Cochon Butcher if you haven't; they smoke their own meats, and it is wonderful.
