    I don't eat many sandwiches anymore (gastric bypass two yrs ago... my new belly is super small and bread fills it up quick!) but a few of my favorites:
    - Grilled cheese and tomatoes
    - roast beef w/ mayo pickles and provolone on a fresh sub roll
    - grilled peanut butter and banana on thin sliced sourdough
    - BLTM - bacon lettuce tomato and fresh mozzarella slices drizzled with balsamic on rye toast

    They have at least 2 Portillo's in Southern California. My mom talked about going there when she worked in the Chicago area back in the sixties. One of there locations is about 6 miles from me. There specialty is hotdogs but the Italian beef sandwich really stands out for me. I have turned on about a dozen people to that place and I bet they have got a few converts in too.
    The Italian Beef is just a beef dip with seasoned beef they have a few choices on how you can have it. I get mine dipped with hot peppers. They also got great burgers and other items. If your lucky enough to have one near go there now! There is a place in L.A. that claims to have invented the French Dip but there is no where near Portillo's.

    Also a great place for a Ruben would be Canters Deli in the Fairfax part of L.A. across from Farmers Market and CBS it is a city landmark. Although the price has risen with the hipster factor over the years.

    I like making Italian sausage sandwich's every once in a while. Grilling the sausage and dumping sauce on it with onions and peppers that I grill also. Don't forget the mozzarella cheese maybe a sprinkle of parm.

    edit: I see some else mentioned Portillos I would have say ditto to that.

    My favorite is a good breakfast sandwich.

    Bacon, an over easy egg fried in the bacon grease, pepper jack cheese, a sauce of srirachia mixed with mayo, on toasted potato bread.

    The best bite is when you get to the runny yolk in the middle...so good.

    This specific blog always resonated with me.
    I think moreso because I didn't realise the differences between UK and USA as much until I lived here

  • A good grilled cheese is nice for lunch, I feel like gyros are more wraps than sandwiches.

    I miss sandwiches so much!  I can't eat bread anymore since my surgery, but - when I could - my absolute favorite was turkey, avocado, bacon, sprouts, cream cheese, and mayo on wheat bread.  *So* good!

  • I have to chime in because my boyfriend and I had the bright idea to make crab, artichoke, and spinach dip and make a grilled cheese out of it the other day. Put it on crusty sourdough and it turned out beautifully. 

    But as far as regular sandwiches go breakfast is top (on a bagel!), and grilled cheese a close second.

    Is it that you don't eat bread or that it's just too much food? If it's the former you could just whack all that in between two sturdy lettuce leaves.

    Gotta add Lee's Sandwich chain. A Vietnamese sandwich (Banh Mi) chain that makes sandwiches on fresh made baguettes. I stick to the BBQ pork sandwich. The thing about there sandwiches is they are simple. light spread, cilantro a raw sliced jalapeno and your choice of meat or veggies on the thin baguette. A lot of Vietnamese restaurants offer sandwiches on there menus my friends parents had a restaurant in the eighties that made them. Now a days I usually I go to lees for them.

    I can't have bread at all, because my stomach is now the size of a ping pong ball and the bread swells, so....   What you suggested is a great idea though.  Apparently a lot of people who have had this surg. eat their sandwiches that way now.  I haven't tried it yet - I may someday though!

    What is it with you Aussies and Vegemite?  lol    :)    (jk)

    Mayo is *life* on a good sandwich.

    @Michelle Haha, Vegemite isn't a condiment though - we aren't slathering it on with everything else. Although a good sourdough toast and Vegemite with avocado is the duck's nuts. ;-)
