At home, a favorite had always been: Peanut butter and sliced dill pickels. My sister and I ate these growing up and still I like to have these once in awhile.

Limburger cheese and onion with a lot of pepper
Peanut butter and tomato with miracle whip
slaw dogs
Baloney on white with butter and mustard ( takes me back to grade school)

Favorite sandwiches:

1. A good Italian sub (SubWay's "BMT" is a reasonable facsimile but most independent sub shops should be able to do better--except those are getting scarce on the West Coast); NO MAYO and NO MUSTARD--just oil and vinegar dressing, salt and pepper;
2. Basic tuna salad sandwich--tuna salad, dill pickles, a bit of lettuce, mayo on decent white bread toasted (made with chunk light tuna, NOT albacore which IMHO has no flavor and too much mercury;
3. Basic BLT--bacon, RIPE tomato, modest amount of lettuce and mayo also on decent white bread toasted;
4. A muffaletta but only if from a good purveyor in New Orleans;
5. Oyster loaf--ditto the above (although it would be possible for a sincere place outside NO to fake this one except I've only seen it tried once or twice).

Hate to disagree with one so ancient, but as we've argued elsewhere, IMHO good corned beef has a decent amount of FAT. It's mostly the FAT that gives it flavor. Out here on the left coast, I find it almost impossible to get edible corned beef because they are too fat-phobic and the stuff they serve has almost no visible fat and is dry and tasteless. However, I will certainly agree that a good, FATTY corned beef sandwich on rye with mustard and a prime half-done pickle is top-notch chow.

A Mexican torta milanese with crisp pickled jalepenos and carrots. Summer tomatoes and lettuce, leaf or iceberg, with salt, pepper and Hellman's Mayonnaise on lightly toasted wheat bread, dill pickles and chips on the side. Tuna salad on white bread. I could go on and on. We love most things between slices of bread. Except a sandwich that one of my cooks begged me to let him run as a special on our lunch menu, years ago. He called it the Kiwi Herman and was kiwi and peanut butter, grilled on white bread. Thank God no one ordered it, it was disgusting!

So I guess it's the "sourdough" bread that makes it "Frisco", eh? Now can somebody that's had one clue me in on the "Frisco sauce"?

I gotta admit, I always get grins at what gets passed off as an icon of regional food in some distant location. There used to be a place in the Bay Area called the "Maryland Crab House". I never ate there--the idea was too scary--but I really wanted to know if they'd do it right (boiled blue crabs coated with red pepper and dumped in a pile on newspaper covered tables). I'm pretty sure they wouldn't. I've also tried "Cajun/Creole" food here in "Frisco" (you all realize, I'm sure, how it painful it was to call it that at first, but now I can't stop). I had fried oysters. Anywhere in the South you'd get a pile of oysters, maybe a large dollop (or side dish) of tartar sauce and another pile of fries and/or hush puppies. Here you get lots of "organic" greens with pecans and a nice raspberry viniagrette and a couple oysters decoratively arranged on top. I have no idea what passes for "Frisco" food in the "Big Easy".

The infamous Kiwi Herman was unveiled in the days when PeeWee still had a television show. Had it been later, when the unfortunate "incident" happened, we surely would have served it open faced. At the same restaurant we ran a special called the Tina Tuna. It was curried tuna, almonds and currants in pita. That sold quite well. I thought I had invented the name, but alas, someone saw a sandwich in Southern California called the Ike and Tina Tuna. I guess it's true, there is nothing new under the sun.

The 'Melt' Sandwiches include a whole bunch of varieties including what is referred to in several places as the Frisco Melt...Tuna Melt.. Bacon Melt and even Some places refer to the Reuben as the Kosher Melt. I am not sure if the Sourdough Bread makes the link (casual as it is) to that village by the sea north of L A . The dressing is usually a close neighbor to thousand island or perhaps the old HOJO 3D sauce. Some Frisco Melts have grilled onions on the burger, some don't. Culver's refers to their sandwich as a Sourdough Melt w/ grilled onions and the cheese melted on the bread as it grills.

That might explain it. This here village claims to have invented "Louis" dressing (as in "Shrimp or Crab Louis") which is, as you say, a "close neighbor to thousand island". Here's one version:

Combine:
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup hot chile sauce
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
salt and pepper to taste

One of my alltime favorite sandwiches is turkey on grilled sourdough with green chiles, guacamole and melted pepper jack cheese.

Also the Miss Albany diner in downtown Albany, NY makes a great "blackstone," warm roast beef with lots of melted new york cheddar, and empire sauce on rye.

My absolute favorite is my fried meatloaf sandwich served on grilled sourdough garlic toast made with my fresh garlic infused Tillamook garlic butter. The meatloaf is fried until dark and crackling crisp in lard. " />, then served with a pile of fried onions from the same pan.
Add ketchup and serve.

My favorite restaurant one is the Monte Cristo sandwich, but one doesn't see that on the menu much these days. It was a staple of the 50's and 60's. If anyone knows of a joint in Southern Cal that serves one, I'd be most obliged.
