My favorite sandwhich is a BLT with provolone and any convenient funky mustard.

I'm guessing your favorite sandwhich is a PB&J.

My favorite sandwich is Betty's Brie from Beyond Bread: roast beef, brie, tomatoes and mayonnaise on a baguette. But I have to get it on sliced bread because the baguette is too crusty and it rips my mouth up to eat it.

My favorite sandwich at home is grilled cheese with Italian seasoned ground beef.

This thread reminds me of a question I had about Kosher eating. I read a comment somewhere that a sandwich containing meat can't be made with bread that contains milk, because of the injunction against eating meat cooked in milk. That didn't seem to make sense to me, because you don't cook the bread and meat at the same time. So I was curious if that comment was correct.

That just made me think of something else: could you use bread with milk in it to make a meatloaf? Or is meatloaf not Kosher?

This will also help me guess Tante's favorite sandwich, by possibly ruling out some options.

Milk and meat cannot be eaten together. Not even if they are cooked separately. So no cheeseburgers, no roast beef and brie, no grilled cheese with ground beef.

Meatloaf is indeed kosher, if it is made with kosher meat (like beef, veal, turkey) and it contains no milk or milk-derived or milk-containing ingredients.

In addition, for food to be kosher, separate dishes, utensils, pots, baking sheets, etc. must be used for milk-containing foods and meat-containing foods.

There are some foods that are neither milky or meaty and can be used with either. Eggs, fruits, vegetables, grains, sugar, are all neutral.

Poultry counts as meat, but fish is neutral.

There is a good reason for this. Really there is. I'm sure that someone on this forum could explain it. (To me, too).

I'm guessing it's pastrami on rye.

My favorite is an open-faced roast beef (with leftover roast beef) on toast smothered in gravy.

Well, I know my favorite ain't yours. Mine is plenty of bacon, fried extra-crispy, with fresh, ripe, home-grown avocado, one leaf of romaine, and mayo on toasted California sourdough or (second choice) a toasted sweet multi-grain bread.

Yum! Hot pastramni, juicy, on warm rye bread with brown mustard. Got to love it!

But it is not my favorite sandwich.

Tante, if you ever come to visit LA in the late spring/ early summer, I will give you avocados fresh from the tree. My dad's fiance's mother has a tree that produces abundantly every year, and not those thick-skinned, alligator-looking things that are called "California avocados" in stores. No, no. Thin-skinned, green-yellow, buttery-textured, sweet, perfectly ripe avocados.

As a kid, my favorite was egg salad, but it was so much trouble to make compared to other sandwiches that I rarely got it. Tuna was a close second.

In Honduras, I found a restaurant that sold an enormous sandwich dubbed the "Superpansandwich". As sandwiches are not traditional Honduran fare, this creation was intended to represent American food, although I've never had anything else like it, and in fact I don't even remember what it was like. But it was great.

My wife makes a great "Mediterranean" sandwich that involves chicken, fresh spinach, feta cheese, and some kind of dressing on panini bread, all of which is grilled. It's very tasty.

I don't have a favorite to be honest. I like most sandwiches equally. I do have a least favorite though: turkey. Turkey in general is my least favorite meat, so of course I'm going to dislike it on a sandwich.

Mmm, but a day-after-thanksgiving sandwich is so good! Spread the bread with butter, layer on turkey, potatoes, turkey, cranberries, stuffing, fry the sandwich, and smother in gravy... Mmmmmm...

I either like a good PB&J (with raspberry J, creamy PB) or a Vegomatic: kaiser roll/french bread with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers, and balsamic vinagerette (yes it's a salad on bread).

My absolute favorite sandwich is curried chicken on any dense bread. You bake the chicken breasts in a honey, curry and mustard, then when they are cool, shread them in a food processor with mayonnaise and more curry. It makes a wonderful spread.

Mostly, though, I eat turkey sandwiches with lettuce, mayo, swiss, and vinegar. The vinegar is the best part.

Tante, kashrus is a chok, so we don't actually know what the reason is. Jusaism 101 has a good discussion on the subject.

And I can't believe you started this topic on a fast day! [Razz]

(As it happens, I have a headache and broke my fast, but what timing! [Roll Eyes] )

I actually don't eat turkey on Thanksgiving. *waits for gasps to subside* My whole family does, but I've never been fond of it. I usually help make a small ham for myself and anyone else who wants some. I'm weird like that.

Out of tradition, I usually take a small piece. I minimize my turkey consumption though.

Yes, that's what she does. Although we don't have an alternative meat, there is always so much food on the table that she takes a small piece of turkey and fills up with everything else. [Smile]

So, you're a Chandler? Just don't like Thanksgiving food at all? I love Thanksgiving food: the gravy and potatoes, the stuffing, the veggies, the sweet potato pudding, the jell-o salads, the home-made cranberry relish and the jellied cranberries, the veggies...

I like the ice cream sandwich above all other sandwiches.

The whole idea of a salad made of Jell-o is strange to me. That Jell-o is Thanksgiving food is enormously weird.

But I suppose you you'd think potato kugel to be out of place on your Thanksgiving table. Or matzah ball soup.

Pretty good so far. There have been a lot of trayf offerings that I had to vicariously pass by, however. The avocado was very good, though. And it's a good thing I vicariously ate the grilled cheese before I vicariously ate the pastrami. But now I have to wait for hours before I can vicariously eat my ice cream sandwich.

The kugel would probably be a welcome addition. We have so much food, though, that the soup would be a bit too much, although I love it.

In my family, Jell-o salads are "special occasion" food-- Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. There are two traditional Jell-o salads that we have; one is layers of strawberry Jell-o with banana in one and strawberry in the other, with sour cream in between layers, and one is cherry Jell-o with apples, cherries, and nuts, and something special I can never remember folded in. Both really delicious, and no one makes them like my grandma. When I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I make the strawberry one, but instead of attempting the wonderful one my grandma makes, make applesauce Jell-o instead. Not quite as good, but very good nonetheless.

My favorite sandwich, rare to find and hard for me to make due to deep frying, is a Monte Cristo. Ham, turkey, and cheese, and the sandwich(usually cut in triangles first) dipped in an egg batter and deep-fried.

Oh my.

In lieu of that, a grilled cheese, made with the sharpest cheddar, with Lea and Perrins(only) Worcestershire sauce to dip it in.

I'm not a huge sandwich fan but if I had to choose a favorite it would be a BLT on a bagel. This is because that is the sandwich I shared with my beloved way back when.. which led to more BLTs on bagels which led to marriage, kids, etc.

It's Tzom (the fast of) Gedalia, which is always the day after Rosh Hashanah.

It is one of the minor fastdays.

Remind me a day or two before we get together next, and I'm sure I can snag you a few.

Especially if you don't mind having to trim 'em. The squirrels seem to like taking nibbles before they're quite ripe.
