Best Sarnie

#1
just sat here munching on a cheese salad and coleslaw sarnie of my own creation that is absolutely gorgeous and it got me to thinking- which is the best sarnie?

for me it's gotta be either this one, ham salad (with salad cream), BLT (with mayo) or chicken and sweetcorn.

how about you lot?

The following is the ultimate bacon sarnie:

slice of malted brown bread
mayo (real stuff, not cheap shite)
3 or 4 rashers of thick dry cured smoked bacon (fried, not grilled)
4 fresh mushrooms thinly sliced and fried in the bacon's fat.
1 fried egg (not too large, better flavour in small eggs)
grated cheddar cheese (again, use good stuff not the plastic shite)
slice of malted brown bread

The above is superb, but when cold, wet and miserable nothing beats an egg banjo.

It is blasphemy to even suggest that there are OTHER sandwiches than the Egg Banjo...to suggest that an alternative might be better is nothing short of casus belli.

the best banjo i ever had was at belfast 20 years ago a sausage egg soda , 4 cookstown sausages and 2 eggs cooked to perfection washed down with a big mug of tea at 6am on a typical wet cold day in the province :D

aye! its the little things in life that matter :wink:

I think one of the nicest sandwiches is Chicken mayonnaise crispy bacon, avocado, tomato & cos lettuce in Mediterranean bread
 
#9
White bread, buttered with mayonnaise, a bed of finely chopped fried mushrooms, two runny fried eggs, another layer of mushrooms, topped with another slice of mayoed bread....

eat with knife and fork, its the gourmand's egg banjo, off to the shops now to buy the makings....

I spoke to a young troop leader who was attending a course at Bovington and he happened to mention that the food was not as good as it is in Windsor. He jokingly (methinks) asked for a food parcel as he was wasting away to nothing. It was a Friday and I was bored so while trimming the dry bits off the Stilton I decided to make him a Stilton cheese and mustard sandwich. I carefully wrapped it up and sent it second class post so it would have matured nicely by the time it arrived. The plus side for the hungry Coronet was I hardly charged him any extra messing at all :twisted:
My own choice is honey roast ham with home made coleslaw served in freshly baked tiger bread.
I gave up tankie cheese possessed and strawberry jam sandwiches served on a diesel stained Wednesday loaf a long time ago. :)

Butler, you brown nosing git - you never did that for me!!

Back to sarnies, its got to be the old maint day treat, a Big McC, 1 Tp style. Thinly sliced compo luncheon meet, fried in marge, with a wodge of melted cheese posessed, served between two slices of next Tuesday´s bread. Magic!

Apart from the infamous Banjo of course...

One of my favourites was a triple sarnie I used to make up while training many moons ago, consisting of:

Bottom slice white bread - thin coating of Mayo - Thin Sandwich steak (from the old Beejams? I think!) - lettuce...

Second slice of white bread - Mayo - Thin Sandwich Steak - thin tomato slices...

Third slice of bread - Mayo - Thin Sandwich Steak - lettuce - tomato - mayo and a dash of salt and pepper to taste...

Top and Final Slice of white bread - squash down to personal desired sandwich thickness - Scoff down with a pint of Guinness!


Bleddy Gorgeouso!!!!!

Naaahhh! The best sarnie was an Abdul Special. Made by Abdul the CharWallah as he squatted on his mat in Sek Kong late at night. Imagine the scene dear readers. Abdul slicing the bread, his 'oppo' slicing the cheese and readying the HP sauce bottle. Meanwhile slavering drunks - refugees from the Ying Wah bar in Kam Tin stood awaiting their sarnie. With great aplomb and with Indian understatement, Abdul would squeeze together the bread and contents, hand it over with a flourish - then add $1.50HK to your 'account'.

Probably because I was still at school when you were on your troop leaders :D

Having said that Re: an Abdul sandwich late at night. A close second would have to be a 'diesel sandwich' - (contents - spam or salmon or corned dog or processed cheese - sometimes all) made by your loader and generously daubed in a fricasee of diesel fingerprints. Best consumed on a night march!

But with the diesel sandwich you have got to drop it down the side of the pack first then pick it up with your oily hands to get the best taste. :D
