The Sandwich King

No, I'm not talking about Lord Sandwich, the avid card player without whom we would not have been able to indulge in sandwiches... I'm talking about M., who makes the best sandwiches in the world (at least according to me).

His specialty is the open-faced type. He piles everything up so high that you need a fork and a knife to eat it. His favourites: lettuce, tomato, fresh garlic and onion (watch out for the breath!), avocado, steamed beets, hard-boiled eggs, and ham or smoked salmon. I know: beets in a sandwich? Yes, it seems odd, but it works. Try it! As for bread, pretty much anything goes: whole wheat from our bread maker, persian bread, pitas are all perfect vessels.

He also makes incredible croque-monsieurs... but that's for another story.

So glad to finally see one of these oft talked-of sandwiches! Beautiful sandwich, M.

Done the beet sandwich thing for a while - lovely with hummus and sprouts on toasted whole-grain bread. (The best is Ace Bakery's organic granary bread... too bad they don't ship to the States!
