Interestment’s Top Four: Sandwiches

Some magnificent treats missed out…

The story goes that Lord Sandwich was throwing a rugby ball around with his tops-off buddies, when he decided to┬áhumiliate a servant by demanding a BLT, only this time using bread instead of sheep guts to hold it together. And lo, the joke backfired, and the sandwich was born. What a great day that was for all of us. Now you can stride down a busy street wolfing down your lunch, and because of the handy digestable bread, there’s no litter. Just a trail of lettuce strewn behind you. We think sandwiches are tremendous, hence we spent an entire day sampling them to see what the best one might be…

1. The Club Sandwich

It was a real battle for the top spot, but a decent Club can be completely mind blowing. In simple terms it’s a tooth-picked double-decker comprising bacon, chicken, some kind of cheese, and lots of salad. Because it combines a Chicken Salad with a BLT, it outzaps Roast Beef and Horseradish. But only just.

2. Cheese and Pickle

For simplicity, you can’t go wrong with this – championed by excellent-leaver-of-comments, Spencer. The tasty cheese providing the base, the fruity pickle adding the zing. It’s like the perfect marriage. Ideally comes on soft white bread, like Sunblest.

3. Meatball Sub

For all their wars on terror, crack corners, and shooting each other in the face, the Americans know how to make one heck of a sandwich. These generally incorporate two essentials – soft sub rolls, and extra processed cheese. Both of which are brilliant. Add a few meatballs in tomato sauce, a spattering of parmesan, and bada-boom! A lovely sandwich.

4. Egg and Onion

A contentious entry, and one which only just edged out the fish options – Prawn Mayonnaise, Tuna Melt – this is an exact science. The Egg Mayonnaise needs to be perfect, and the onion must be sliced so thinly as to be almost invisible. On brown bread, accompanied by a bowl of crisps, this makes for a fantastic lunch.

    It doesn’t sound great does it… but, honestly, done correctly it’s a masterpiece.

    seriously.

    very surprised that the ‘fried bread, fried bread sandwich’ (three pieces of fried bread – stacked) didn’t make it into the top 4…
