Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? So many possibilities! Millions of sandwiches are consumed each year in the U.S. They’re so convenient, my family and I eat them a lot in the summertime; packing them for road trips, trips to the beach and pool, and more. I like to buy a small variety of cold cuts and cheeses, but I also enjoy using tuna, grilled chicken, and bacon for sandwiches. And, of course, I love an occasional PB&J!
Why type of sandwich do you enjoy the most? Let me know in the comments!

My favorite is tuna salad on a croissant or pumpernickel bread. By salad I mean celery, onions, cucumber, lettuce and tomato. If tuna isn’t available I can substitute with chicken but then I add green and red grapes cut up. Yum!
Fresh made homie bread roast beef turkey smoked ham onion lettuce tomato cheese olive oil and Bell pepper slightly toasted
I love a jalapeño popper grilled cheese with bacon on a big crusty bread yum
My fav sandwich: luv a good BLTA, A for avocado! I’ll mash up a half an avocado and spread on one slice of my sourdough bread and mayo on the other. Then lots of bacon (who going to argue with that) 4 tomato slices and some crisp romaine YUMMY!!
When I’m in the mood for a sandwich, I love a messy grilled peanut butter and jelly – that’s with grape jelly not strawberry. Been eating them since my early childhood so now they serve as a nostalgic piece as well as an edible one.
We’re probably related! Next to egg salad it’s my next go to! Any jelly is fine but the grape is amazing. Oh and one more step…. it needs POTATO CHIPS!
I love a club ,I consider a cold sandwich but as far a hot sandwich/sub I’d have 2 go w the Philly cheese steak..
Favorite sandwich is a chicken cutlet with everything on it except tomatoes
I’m a southern girl and Mayo is an absolute for me. Until I met and married a Jersey guy. Welcome Mr Hero. An amazing sandwich with oil and vinegar, who knew. When I moved back home, guess what? Jersey Mikes showed up here in my neighborhood. Lol. I’m a Stick ball girl. Life goes on without Mayo. Chat at ya later.
I have a few favorites. First is classic grilled cheese but it has to be white cheese only for me! My 2nd fav would probably be club sandwhiches
My favorite sandwich is a BLT with a fried egg sometimes with mayonnaise and sometimes with mustard.
I’m with you, I luv a good BLTA, A for avocado! I’ll mash up a half an avocado and spread on one slice of my sourdough bread and mayo on the other. YUMMY
Sandwiches are a comfort food to me a little healthier than the typical category selections for the topic. However, whichever I choose, as there is no favorite to me and trying is heart ache to my love for the others , a universal truth is the key ingredient that makes every one of them a solid choice is the need for seasoning and a crunch vs softness in the ingredients if choice… Pallets aside a protein and fruit or veggie combo to burst its flavor and a sauce and seasoning adding a contrast that complements the pair already selected and sprinkles of tang or zest or spicey sweet that leaves the mouth watering in the jaw to the point of tingling is a perfect sandwich experience. OH.. and a little wild card ingredient added is always a thrill.. like my chicken salad has the typical aromatic of celery and can be for many the crunch however I slice mine so thinly that it truly isn’t enough for that instead my crunch and wild cards are green grapes cut in half or quarters and soft dried cranberies with a toasted flavored slivered almond on bed of butter lettus or an open face on a kaiser..or with a cracker like garlic infused triscuit…with a sprinkle of avocado toast seasoning and sea salt( himalayan)…
Nothing beats a hot panini pressed sandwich. Cuban sandwiches and poboys are a favorite for us!
My favorite sandwich is an Italian hoagie with American cheese and provolone Swiss lots of meat light lettuce tomato mayonnaise vinegar and oil a must oregano salt and pepper a place called two J’s in Chester Pennsylvania where I grew up may be very best cheesesteaks and hoagies they also had the best Italian rolls fresh as could be melt in your mouth long rolls that held the food in there perfectly and they were the best sandwiches I’ve ever had all my life until I went to the Air Force at 17 and I never been back to get another one because I’ve never been in the area and unfortunately they will not ship you hoagies through the mail or steak sandwiches so one day before I die I need to go back to two days and order me about 20 steak sandwiches and 20 Italian hoagies and probably have a heart attack
I like a simple sub. I just like white bread, roast beef and mayo with a pickles on the side. This sub is great.
Hello Tyler my favorite sandwich is a Philly cheese steak sandwich a grilled cheese or turkey and ham sandwich
Mashed avocado is my favorite! It is the perfect accompaniment to any cold cut sandwich. Also great on toasted roll with a grilled portobello cap and fresh mozzarella.
My favorite sandwiches are pb&j with both sides of the bread spread with peanut butter and topped with some good ol’ lays regular potato chips, grilled cheese with velveeta cheese slice or muenster cheese and last but not least, egg salad!!!
All those are sandwiches I make at home. Now sandwiches at a sandwich shop are a different story. When eating out, my favs are French dip, Philly cheesesteak, a cheesy chicken bacon sandwich or Schlotsky’s original sandwich! Yum, yum. I think I may go and make me a sandwich now. 😉
There is nothing as great as a GOOD Philly Cheese Sandwich!!!!!
I love a French dip or a club. But, since having bariatric surgery, I can’t really eat bread. So I do a club wrapped in the lettuce. Still so yummy. My new “sandwich”.
My favorite sandwich is PhillySteak …although I like almost any other meat,
egg salad or grilled cheese‼️
Veggie sandwich he’s always. Arch my attention. I’m okay with meat, but there are too many veggies to ignore so I just get it all.
Taylor Ive honestly never paid much attention to your blogs before id read them and not really put thought in to what they said! Today I read them and I actually paid attention and they’re very enlightening … but who would have thought rum 🍹raisin ice cream is Floridas fav !! I’m not in the majority of that vote Lol!
You just can’t beat a Philly CheeseSteak!
My favorite sandwich start with honey wheat bread,spicy Italian, pepper jack cheese spinach,tomato, jalapeno cilantro, pickle cucumbers red onion, and top it off with some black pepper and vinegar 😋
My favorite is a club sandwich. On wheat toast put mayo and then a layer of sliced turkey or chicken. Then lettuce, tomato, Swiss cheese, sliced onion and turkey bacon. Top with another piece of wheat toast with mayo on it and cut in half. Or if you want to be like the restaurants I remember as a kid, cut it diagonally into fourths and put toothpicks in the wedges.
