Favourite Sandwich/Baguette fillings?

This is a random one but wondered what your favourite filling is? Hoping to see something pregnancy craving odd grin

I got the bits to make a sandwich, but left half to share so others could taste the best sandwich in the world. Well to me anyway, will have to wait for further votes.

It started off with M&S in house granary bread, smallish loaf, apply mayo instead of butter, half an onion (that's always precut in a tub) apple smoked Wiltshire ham, bit more mayo, then peppery salad leaves.

You could add mustard if you're a fan, the mayo did it for me. Was going to leave 3/4 of it so everyone had their fair share. DD will pick out the onion, or DH will for her.

To buy it I think you'd be looking at £2/3 in an artisan food shop.

Loaf £0.99
Red Onions £0.80 a big bag
Peppery Leaves £1.50
Ham £2.00
Mayo £0.79

All from M&S, will do about 6 lunches if not more. Plus I got a cucumber for £0.50. There's loads of leaves left, we get our red onions from day Sainsbury's they're always on their way to onion heaven, but these were perfect & a big bag. £6 including cucumber, so £1 a lunch with left overs.

I know for most men bacon is a must. Something in male DNA unless practising Jewish or Muslim or Veggie.

Bacon sarnie made with two potato waffles instead of bread. (Waffles also really good with Xmas dinner leftovers as filling).

I am a bit obsessed with the following:

Toasted ciabatta or bagel
Tomatoes (seasoned with pepper, and garlic salt)
A little bit of finely chopped raw onion
Finely grated cheese

Bloody heavenly

I have also always been a fan of prawn marie rose sandwiches, on brown bread, cut in to triangles. grin

I love a fancy sandwich but in all honestly the best for me are

Extra strong cheddar with branston on white tiger bread

Extra strong cheddar and onion

Extra strong cheddar, sliced raw mushrooms, mayo

M&S egg and tomato (made with salad cream.

MistyMinge Sun 02-Apr-17 12:53:58

English mustard not mayo!

Grilledaubergines Sun 02-Apr-17 12:55:03

For extra strong cheddar, it's got up to be a 5 strength or upwards. Cornish cruncher with salt crystals is a winner.

LockedOutOfMN Sun 02-Apr-17 12:58:57
