Ten Favorite Sandwiches
Ah the sandwich. Possibly the food world’s greatest invention. Simple in concept with endless culinary possibilities, a perfect sandwich can be a revelation. Jairo from the True Bromance Film Podcast joins me today to share five of his favorite sandwiches, and I do the same, to bring you ten points of sandwich inspiration! Our sandwiches are listed below with links to more information and recipes, but to get all the commentary you’ll have to listen to the episode!
For a bonus, we go into a hamburger discussion at the end (and no, hamburgers aren’t sandwiches). Enjoy!
The sandwich list…
It’s all about the bread. And the ham and pork. And the pickle. Well, everything basically.

Bacon, lettuce, tomato. Need we say more?
Curry Chicken Salad
Regular chicken salad sandwich. Booooring. Kick it up a couple of notches with this version!
Comforting. A bit messy. Nice and beefy. The Pioneer Woman has a great recipe for from-scratch roast beef and French Dips.
Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit Sandwich
Like a bit of New Orleans every time you taste it. Fried shrimp is common, but feel free to give crayfish, oysters, or even beef a spin.
You might know this classes street food sandwich as a shawarma or a gyro. Whatever you call it we can all agree it’s tasty (and perfect after a night on the town). Here’s a cool recipe for recreating the trademark rotisserie flavor at home.
Close to sandwich perfection. Salty corned beef topped with nutty swiss cheese and tangy sauerkraut. Dressed with thousand island or Russian dressing and piled onto nice, thick rye. Tough to make from scratch, but easy to buy all the ingredients and assemble!
Jairo’s spirit sandwich. Take the time to do it right and you’ll have a transformative sandwich experience on (in) your hands. Gouda cheese is Jairo’s favorite, but good old American works like a charm too. Probably a gazillion recipes out there, but give this one a shot. Also, check out the movie “Chef” and look for the grilled cheese lesson outtake in the end credits.
Roger’s spirit sandwich. White bread, turkey, ham, swiss. Batter dipped and deep fried (if you want to make a real Monte Cristo). You can also go french toast style and skip the deep frying and do it on the griddle or frying pan. Finish with powdered sugar and berry preserves. This video does a good job of explaining it!
