Today’s Ten On Tuesday topic, inspired by Vicki’s list last week, is 10 Favorite Sandwiches. Who doesn’t love a good sandwich?!
- Peanut Butter & Jelly. Old school on white bread. Still probably my most favorite sandwich ever.
- Tuna Salad. Not too much mayo, thank you very much. I like it best with lettuce, pickles and Swiss cheese.
- Ham. Honey Maple, please. With lettuce and honey mustard.
- Grilled Cheese. With tomatoes when they are local and in season. White bread, wheat bread, marble rye, it’s all good. I’ve been reading lately that the best grilled cheese is made with mayo on the bread instead of butter. I’ve never tried that but I’m willing to try anything once.
- Thanksgiving Sandwich. You know the one – with leftover turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo. Yummmmm.
- BLT. Only only only when the tomatoes are local.
- Lobster Roll. My favorite is from The Raw Bar in Mashpee because they are absolutely huge but so long as it’s got lots of lobster and not a lot of mayo and is on a very fresh roll I’m a happy girl.
- Egg Salad. Another childhood favorite, I loved it best when the eggs were still warm. Very little mayo, maybe some celery, lots of salt and pepper.
- Salami & Cheese. Toasted. Lettuce, tomato, pickles, extra hot peppers. No onions.
- Club Sandwich. Preferably turkey but I don’t mind it with a cheeseburger either.
Honestly, I could keep going but I think those are my 10 favorites. Maybe also a hot turkey sandwich and a tuna melt, but those are definitely the highlights of the sandwich world for me.

Great list! I love a good BLT – try it with sliced avocados. It’s soooo good.
Judy H beat me to it, although I mash my avo so it can’t squit out. I also love a good French Dip or Italian Drip Beef. Gah! All this yummy food talk before breakfast!
As you might have guessed, I eat few sandwiches, but one of my favorites is your tuna, but only if I can eat it with you in the kitchen.
Part of me hates to mess with my tried and true method for grilled cheese, but I think I’ll be trying mayo tonight. Delicious list!
Now I am hungry for lunch.
Holy cow! We have a couple of similar sandwiches… but all of yours are my favorites, too!! 😉
Mayo instead of butter for a grilled cheese???
1,7,9…absolutely could have added! Sandwiches just make the world a better place. Great list Carole!
Open faced Hot Turkey sandwich on White bread. Turkey both white and dark in the pan with the gravy and some stuffing chunks mixed in 🙂
Your photos alone make my mouth water . . . and then . . . when you describe your favorites? Lunch time please!
Like you, I don’t like a lot of mayonnaise in tuna. I love egg salad with chopped green olives mixed in. That was the way my grandmother made it and I don’t know of anyone outside of my family who likes it that way.
There is a wonderful Jewish deli not far from us and their Rueben is to die for–one order serves two!

I would leave out #9 and add green olives to the egg salad. PB&J are not amongst my favorites, but every once in a while, nothing but a PB&J hits the spot. In place of your #9, I would put turkey with cole slaw and a heap of mayo. (It’s almost lunch time, thank God – I can indulge immediately.)
A Reuben is one of my favorites, and chicken salad, just love it.
I just found out I am allergic to wheat (gives me a rash) so I cried all the way through the 10 on Tuesday and all the way through the comments. However, I have discovered one can eat a hot dog wrapped in a corn tortilla and be somewhat happy. Ham can be done with sliced cheese instead of bread and PB&J can be on sliced apples, but I can’t think of any way to do grilled cheese. Ideas?
I’m not a big sandwich eater. I prefer my tuna with some crackers – or even potato chips! And I make mine with Miracle Whip. I do sometimes eat peanut butter and jelly (strawberry jelly). And I love grilled cheese! Never tried it with mayo before….

Cream cheese and olive or cream cheese with pepperoni are the two that were special treats from my childhood. And ripe beefsteak tomato slices with thinly sliced red onion …..all on pepperidge farm white bread please, not wonder bread …..yumm!
Grilled cheese with tomato, what a great idea! Sun-dried in the winter when the fresh tomatoes are pink baseballs. And I just discovered lobster rolls last summer (lobsters are surprisingly scarce in WI lakes) — I was obsessed.

After making literally thousands of PB&J sandwiches during my summers in my dad’s camp kitchen, I still can’t bring myself to eat them. In almost 50 years, I have eaten exactly one. It actually tasted pretty good, but it’ll probably be 50 more years before I eat another.
The Turkey & cranberry sauce has got to be my favorite. And yes, mayo on the grilled cheese is a very nice change.
grilled cheese with tomato is one of my favorites and yeah, mayonnaise (I learned that trick from my mom, who also uses it on baked fish – weird and gross, but delicious!)
I don’t eat it very often but I will eat a potato chip sandwich. Buttered white bread with wavy plain potato chips. As many as you can smash in there! Yea. I know. Weird.
OMG. I ate potato chip sandwiches just like that when I was little. My dad said I would grow up to be weird. (He was right…)
My favorite in the summer…. stacks of very thinly sliced Vidalia onion, green peppers, cucumbers and local tomatoes on dense whole wheat bread with mayo, salt and pepper. YUM. A close second is a BLT with same local tomatoes. Pepper Jack grilled cheese. PB&J on dense whole wheat.
Of course now I’m doing the low-carb thing so NO SANDWICHES! 🙁
One of my new favorite sandwiches is a variation on the grilled cheese. It’s brie and homemade cranberry sauce on thick whole wheat. It’s a messy eat, but oh so delicious.
Ham, gruyere, frise, caramelized onion on SF sourdough. Pure bliss. Especially with a glass of bubbles nearby.
