Howdy,
"our usual sandwiches are grilled cheese, tuna salad or in season veggie sandwiches.  When I have tomatoes, I make BLT's." daily at this time of year!

Obviously this is a trick question. Besides all the mouth watering sandwiches already mentioned there are also fried eggs sandwiches, peanut butter with banana, Philly cheese steaks, meatball sandwiches, chicken fried steak sandwiches with cream gravy, tuna melts, lobster sandwiches, shrimp & oyster po' boys, plus good ol' TX brisket sandwiches. Seriously, pick just one?

If I absolutely had to pick just one sandwich to eat every single day it would be the brisket sandwich from https://saltlickbbq.com/

I like to make a large pork roast for dinner one night and have sandwiches from it the next night. My three favorite sandwiches for leftover pork roast are banh mi - pork, salami, pickled daikon, carrot and cucumber with mayo on a baguette, cuban - pork, ham, swiss, pickles on a roll with mustard, and french dip - pork and au jus on a roll.

The second sandwich is called a Croque Monsieur - this translates as Mr Crunchy

A croque monsieur is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich that often has melted cheese on top and is found in most cafés throughout France.  The name comes from the French verb croquer (“to bite, to crunch”).  The melted cheese is sometimes a cheese sauce.
........

For a final touch, I spread more Mornay on top of the closed sandwiches,.





A local restaurant used to sell something called a "Cheese Frenchie" :  https://www.food.com/recipe/cheese-frenchee-116213

Cheese and mayo between bread slices with the sandwich dipped in batter and deep-fried.  I can feel my heart valves flutter just at the thought! :)  Tried one once with ham and it was pretty astounding, although not something you want to eat everyday....

Technically not a sandwich, but this time of year and any time of day, toast with either basil/almond pesto or salty hummus then topped with ripe or nearly so tomato slice.  Buonissimo!...

My go to is ham & cheese with lettuce and tomato on sourdough.  Here's how I assemble mine.  Toast 2 slices of sourdough, lay fold 2 thin slices of Black Forest ham on one toast, Swiss or Provolone cheese on the other.  Microwave (or re-toast) until the cheese melts and ham starts to curl.  Pull one slice of ham over the cheese, coat with mustard, then pull the other slice of ham over.  Top ham with sliced tomato, salt and pepper, and a few layers of lettuce.  Slather mayo on the vacant toast and flip on top.  Serve with dill pickle and favorite tea.  Yum!  Messy but fun to eat.  Keep sandwich and mouth over the plate.  Sop up dripped tomato juice, oozed mustard and mayo with outside of toasted top.  Good to the last drop.  That's what I had for supper tonight.

I also love Reubens, hot pastrami, grilled ham and cheese, egg salad with tomato, cuke and watercress with Hollandaise sauce or ranch dressing, fried egg with bacon sandwiched between English muffin halves, tuna with ketchup and mayo wrapped in a tortilla, and for dessert PB&J with Marshmallow Fluff on plain old white bread (it's gotta be PB on one slice, jam or preserves on the other slice, then the marshmallow spread on the PB).

My home-grown chicken on my home baked bread with homemade mayo, sliced tomato, leaf lettuce, and if I'm feeling decadent, some home-pickled onions.

Ha ha! Cimarron Layne, I saw Marshmallow Fluff and thought "ah, fellow New Englander" then checked and saw you were from Maine!
Grilled cheeses for dinner tonight, mine with bread and butter pickles on the side. But not a favorite per se, just convenient. So many good sandwiches out there!

Turkey sandwich in many forms, holiday leftovers, turkey club, "The Jugs" from Geoff's in Providence, or my own version of all of these together!

Some multi-grain bread, Turkey, Thousand Island dressing (sub. Chipotle ranch or mayo, ketchup, relish), cranberry sauce, sweet pickles/bread and butter pickles, onion, lettuce, pickled jalapenos (or not), stuffing or just stuffing herbs (a Thomas' corn Toast-r-cake as a third bread slice is kinda nice.), black pepper, bacon if there's some. It's a sloppy, sweet and savory, unhinge your jaw sort of sandwich. It can be soggy, so I "mayo" both breads to "waterproof" it, well drained condiments helps some, but it is best eaten fresh rather than packed.

I'll often eat this for days in a row, based on opening and using up a can of cranberry sauce.

The Reuben love in this thread is awesome. I also love Reubens, but haven't been able to eat the traditional for a long time (I can't eat beef or pork anymore). Then I switched to turkey reubens for a while. Then I moved to Japan and turkey isn't a thing... so I just have been missing out on reubens in my life.

Today I made a tomato, lettuce, mayonaise sandwich. It's a BLT minus the pork. Works pretty well, and can be a vegan option! Surprisingly I don't miss the bacon. I used to swap it out for smoked duck, but I wasn't feeling it today.

I have learned to enjoy vegemite and cheese sandwiches.

I'm also quite partial to fried fish sandwiches with tartar sauce and cheese. Basically a home-made fillet o' fish from the Golden Arches.

Aw geez, I quit eating bread a couple years ago...you're making me drool!!!  But here are a few former faves:

Sweet:
Peanut butter, grated apple, sprinkle of cinnamon, possibly some honey if needed, and grilled.  Nice for breakfast.

Savory:
Mayo, ketchup, taco sauce (I used Taco Bell packets), sliced onion, cheese (cheddar or American-like), bacon bits or bacon, avocado, lettuce...sounds unimpressive, but the combination...wowza!

Strange:
Tuna salad (with mayo) and sliced banana.  My favorite during high school.  Freaked people out, but it has that salty-sweet thing going on.

Someone made me:
Fried egg with olive oil and garlic, mayo, and sundried tomatoes.  Wow, was that a delicious surprise!

True to my danish heritage I like liver pâté and pickled beets in my sandwich. For a hot sandwich I love a grilled ham and cheese.

I read all the sandwiches and am drawn to the vegetarian ones. Here is one I love

Marmalade (made by me), cheese (your choice, I prefer my own home made cottage cheese), a few chopped walnuts. Toast bread, assemble sandwich, gently cut on the diagonal so as not to destroy the integrity of the sandwich
Served on a  plain white plate with gold edge; served with a steamy strong black coffee in a cup with a saucer, to myself as I sit on my balcony in the middle of a city with 10 million people, dreaming as if I was already on my yet to be acquired 2 1/2 acre slice of Paradise.

Thanks for fun topic. I'm always looking for new sandwich for kids lunch box

My favourite sweet sandwich is a variant on the banana and peanut butter. Banana and coursly crushed wallnuts, and maybe a bit of drizzled honey.

I've taken to substituting butter for olive oil on toast, with whatever else you would like to put on it. Healthier and love the taste

Although a Rueben is quite good an unique I find them salty if eaten out. I will take a Rory. It's a hamburger with just peanut butter and bacon.

Home made seed bread (half and half white and wholemeal flour and whatever seeds there are in the cupboard), cheese (whatever there is in the fridge) lettuce, cucumber and Marmite has my mouth watering.
I am also partial to the occasional fried egg banjo although it was years before I knew how it acquired its name. (The yolk is soft so when you bite into it, it drips down your clothes. You rubbing the yolk off your top is you playing the  "banjo".)

Complex - in no particular order, because I just can't, lol: Croque Monsieur, Croque Madame, Monte Cristo, Muffaletta, Reuben

Simple - also in no particular order: blt; fluffer-nutter; peanut butter & honey; braunschweiger, with onion & yellow mustard; salted tomato & mayo, on a hearty, dark bread(this is my all time fave, probably born mostly of nostalgia!).

Breakfast - again, in no particular order: cinnamon/pecan waffle w hot sausage, egg, and sharp cheddar; chorizo, egg & chihuahua cheesew/Pico de Gallo in a soft corn tortilla; sausage, egg, & cheese on a biscuit or croissant

Not being able to eat conventional wheat has forced some acceptable slight changes to many of these, for me - and others (I'm lookin' at YOU, MUFFALETTA!!) I still haven't figured out how to modify, without losing too much authenticity. But, I'm working on it. I have a couple of the local places here, where if I take my own bread, they'll work with me, but at home, the majority of them are easy enough to do.

Many options and tastes. Wow!
My favorites I could live on :
1. Canned smoked sprats (product of Latvia) in oil, on caraway rye bread (I soak the bread with oil the sprats are canned in), load the sprats on and eat.
2. Canned smoked sprats  + it's oil , mixed with cream cheese into pate , spread on caraway seeds rye bread.
    hard boiled eggs, mashed with real mayonnaise and (any onion), spread as above.
3. Tomato + onions (any onions) + loads of butter + the mention bread above.

    I can live on rye bread with caraway seeds and loads of butter alone LOL

[size=7] Alas...as many times as I tried (sooo many!), I don't have any luck creating  regular sour dough to make/bake rye bread.
Ugh! I can bake . I do)  but this one just doesn't like me

one of my favorites along with a Reuben; is a sandwich made of ritz crackers,( hopefully an organic version) as the bread, of course, with peanut butter(also organic) and smoked oysters ; which should then be sprinkled with cayenne pepper! . You will definitely get a natural buzz eating this.

Kyle, that is interesting.

What kind of spouts do you put on a sandwich?

I can imagine using alfalfa, radish, or mustard though not bean.

Usually alfalfa, sometimes mustard, haven't tried bean yet.

If you can find a place that makes good sandwiches and offers it, I like me a nice mufalleta sandwich with a GOOD olive salad spread.
