With sandwich choices being limited to Subway, Quiznos and those making the standards (ham, turkey, roast beef, etc.), I am planning a sandwich shop that offers the "off the beaten path" choice of sandwiches.

An example would include the following "southern" sandwiches:

Grilled tomato, bacon and cheddar with roasted red onion mayo
Grilled peanut butter and banana
Grilled tomato, mozzarella and bazil
Grilled pork and fontina
Grilled pimento cheese and tomato

I would like to hear from you: what kinds of sandwiches do you crave and yet, can't find anywhere.  They don't have to be "southern", just tasty.

Thanks for your input.

You could offer specialty burgers like the Luther Burger, the Butter Burger and the Goober Burger.

Luther I prefer the grilled one, like in the third picture.

Bristol Farms markets here in southern California offer a sandwich that is similar to what you describe. I think the asparagus is wrapped in thinly sliced turkey and topped with tomatoes, maybe bacon, some type of white cheese and mayo on a seedy dark bread, then grilled/pressed. When you cut it in half, the green dots of the asparagus cross-sections are surprising and fun.
 
When I was in high school I worked summers at a now-defunct (I think) sandwich shop in PA. One of the specialty sandwiches there was called the Mad Dog. I think it was pastrami and turkey with cole slaw and Russian dressing on marble rye. I loved it so.

My own home-made favorite: French toast (made with no added sugar or vanilla, just soaked in beaten eggs with a little of milk and a dash of black pepper) sandwiched around sliced processed cheese (any flavor) the minute it comes out of the skillet, so it will melt the cheese.  A slice of ham can also be added at this time. (It's especially good when built up in this order: French toast, silce of cheese, slice of ham, another slice of cheese, French toast.)
 
The ultimate high-protein sandwich: bread slice spread with peanut butter, hard-boiled egg slices, slice of cheese, slice of ham or other meat, bread slice spread with horseradish sauce, hot pepper or other spicy mustard, or even sandwich spread, tartar sauce or mayo. (The peanut butter holds the hard-boiled egg slices in place.)

A Classic BLT, but only if you have access to really really good tomatos.  The tomato makes or breaks this sandwich in my opinion.  This is a sandwich I always look for, is actualy hard to find, and when I do find it I want to see the tomatos first before I order it.  If they're irregular and ugly, I'll get it.  If they're perrfect hydroponics, pass.


A fav sandwich of mine from the sadly long gone Bushnell's Turtle (Iowa City, IA) was toasted caraway rye, split grilled bratwurst, melted havarti cheese, hot saurkraut, and plenty of rustic whole grain mustard. Insanely flavor packed.

Good toasted bread, sliced REAL turkey, and a cream cheese/cranberry spread. At the most you might put some fresh crunchy lettuce in here, but keep it simple.

"Thanksgiving all year 'round" sandwich.................no restaurant serves this one!   Toasted white bread with good mayonnaise on it, slices of fresh turkey breast, layer of really good stuffing,
 and a slice of cranberry jelly..............with ice cold unpasteurized cider as the beverage.
 
 
Another one would be a well made  good old fashioned club sandwich, nicely cut with those great  long tooth picks to hold the quarters in place!  Too few places serve this anymore.

Thank you all for your ideas and suggestions.

About the bread...what are your thoughts on dutch crunch, focaccia and ciabatta breads.  I'm mention them specifically because of the "crunch" they each have.  I realize I would also need to offer breads such as rye, sourdough, italian, wheat, white, etc. but like the crunchy bread because of the extra "surprise" the bread offers.

Re:Your sandwich wish list 2009/10/28 00:32:26
What I wish for most of all is no processed meats, not even minimally.  Everything roasted on site or at least no brining, injecting, rubbing, etc.  I want roast beef rare if I want.  Everything sliced paper thin.  Sturdy breads from a good local bakery, custom made to compliment the different sandwiches.  
 
That being said, I would like:
 
1. Super rare roast beef on a dense and chewy French roll, housemade mayo, swiss cheese.
2. Turkey breast with cream cheese and cranberry sauce on croissant.
3. Sunnyside up eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese and lemony holldaise sauce on parmesan and butter grilled sliced sourdough. 
4. Open faced Ham, tomato and broiler-browned fondue on oversized English muffins.

  Sounds like a Monte Christo sandwich to me. In our place we do the same with Texas toast but add turkey and serve it with a side of strawberry compote. I have seen this sandwich served deep fried with a light egg batter but I think that the bread soaks up too much oil. I have also seen this 'wich served with currant jelly.

How about fried baloney?  It is great in any sandwich, but I really loved the one that used to be sold by the now-long-gone Toot and Tell It drive in in Richlands, NC.  White bread, mustard, fried baloney and a drizzle of a special sauce - much like a hotdog sauce, spicy with a little bit of ground meat in it.  It was the best!

To me, there is a big difference between a Monte Cristo and my French toast sandwich.  A Monte Cristo sandwich is put together first and then dipped in egg or in an egg batter.  With my French toast sandwich, the bread is dipped in the egg mixture on both sides of the bread (and let to soak in a little) before frying, so when fried, it is truely what I used to call it as a child, "egg bread" (with a good eggy flavor to it).  Only then, after frying, is the sandwich put together.  If you love the flavor of scrambled eggs, try making the sandwich both ways, and you will be able to taste the difference.

I miss the Mystery Sandwich from Chiodo's in Pittsburgh. From the description published when Sam Chiodo died:
Chiodo's Mystery Sandwich
Cook hamburger patty. Top with thin slices of kolbassi and sauerkraut (see below). Heat through. Top with "mystery cheese" (a slice of provolone and a slice of American, with three pepperoni slices between) and "mystery sauce" (see below). Heat until melted.
Sauerkraut: Drain and rinse kraut. Add red and green pepper, garlic, sugar, oregano, red-pepper seeds and tomato sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1.5 hours, "depending on your crunch factor." Add seasonal vegetables to taste.
Mystery sauce: Mix tomato sauce or puree with tomato juice to make a "not-too-thick/not-too-thin" sauce. Add red-pepper seeds, sugar, oregano, garlic, pepper and "whatever floats your boat."
"There [are] no measurements," the recipe cautions. "That's what makes it a mystery every time."


However, it's very possible that the sandwich is undistinguished without the ambiance; I can't guarantee that I'd enjoy it in a restaurant without bras hanging from the ceiling.

if you want to do of the wall sandwichs;
have a menu board of any & all ingredients you have available to make sandwichs with,at 1 price to simplify it.
 good luck with this one.
 
 
on the other hand, just make a sandwich with a lot of meat, priced reasonably would work, I've seen it.
you'll get more regular customers with this than from those  fru fru sandwichs.

1) Take two large slices of pizza.  Cheese pizza gives you the most options, but others, like pepperoni, work well also.  Trim off the crusts and save.  On one slice top with meat of choice.  Dress with lettuce, tomato, onions (or not), pickles (or not), etc.  Top with second pizza slice.  Serve cold or warm after a couple of minutes in a panini press.  Serve with crusts as breadsticks with desired dipping sauce (ranch, BBQ, cheese, etc.)

2) The Pizza Pup which I miss having ever since Fedco in Los Angeles went out of business.  Take a cheese pizza slice.  Trim off crust if too large.  Place a cooked hot dog at the wide end and roll up.  Secure with a toothpick and serve.

Perhaps.  But when you think about it, pizza is nothing more than flatbread with cheese, tomato sauce (usually) and other stuff.  If one is willing to accept tomato sauce as their sandwich dressing then the pizza sandwich is nothing more than a meat sandwich with cheese, tomato sauce and condiments.  The Pizza Pup.  Yeah, can't argue there.  Nuthin' but fat and calories!!! (But it tastes SOOOO good!) :)

The Capers can go into the butter but the cracked pepper must go into the tuna. I think it is important that the pepper pieces are coarse ground so you actually bite into the pieces. I use mayo but lightly. With soft bread a wet tuna salad would sog out the bread. I would not toast the Itallian bread. Sour Dough or Rye toasts better. Soft Butter and Itallian bread go perfectly together. Hard Cold Butter, Hard Salami and Mustard also go together perfectly.IMO...Russ

You're welcome, just remember not everyone likes a hot sandwich all the time. (Your first post has you grilling everything.) Also grilled peanut butter makes a HUGE MESS, so use a smaller amount than you would for a regular sandwich or grill the bread halfway ahead of time.

Your new sandwich shop, I can only hope that it will keep alive the noble Monte Cristo, served with a side cup of strawberry preserves. This was the staple of my sainted Mum and other ladies who lunch in the fifties and early sixties, and maybe even the forties.

I make a meatloaf sand that seems to be popular. One inch slabs are sliced off a cold meatloaf, then fried crisp and brown in lard. Sourdough slices are brushed with garlic infused clarified butter, then flat-grilled with grated Parmesan or Romano. The sandwich is served with a choice of grilled or raw onion, as well as the usual lettuce and tomato for those who like that kind of stuff to ruin a perfectly good sandwich. Ketchup and marinara sauce are also offered.

Another variation on the previous sandwich has split and flat-grilled hot Polish sausage from Farmer John in place of the meatloaf.

Another favorite of mine is a grilled turkey, ham, Ortega chile and jack or cheddar cheese served on sourdough with raw or grilled onion.

Thank you all for your comments!

Some sandwiches sound delicious and will make it on the menu, while other...well, thank you for all the comments.

About the link sandwiches at http://thisiswhyyourefat.com/ ..... one word: NAUSEATING!


You're welcome, just remember not everyone likes a hot sandwich all the time. (Your first post has you grilling everything.) Also grilled peanut butter makes a HUGE MESS, so use a smaller amount than you would for a regular sandwich or grill the bread halfway ahead of time.



Noted.  Thank you very much!

Again, I want to thank everyone for their posts and sandwich ideas.  I AM referring to the "wish list" when designing my menu, keeping in mind that there is something for everyone, hot and cold and what's gross to one is gourmet to another.  Thank you!
