It is British Sandwich Week this week, apparently. Form what I can see, it’s an initiative for companies to donate a certain amount of money to charity when sandwiches are bought, which you can read about here.
I guess it is also a way to celebrate the sandwich, in all of it’s versatile glory.
My favourite sandwich has to be bacon sandwich on white bread, no butter with plenty of tomato sauce, closely followed by an egg mayo on seeded bread. In fact, it would be hard to choose between the two!
My hubby, on the other hand, would throw the food at you if you were to hand him a bacon sarnie with red sauce. He’s a strictly brown sauce kinda guy. And it often sparks debate in our house. He will say there is no debate, HP Brown Sauce wins hands down, but I would beg to differ. He actually loves brown sauce so much, he sometimes skips out the rest of the fillings and simply had a ‘brown sauce sandwich’. It’s enough to turn my stomach, it’s vile. But each to their own, and that’s the great thing about a sarnie, that it is so customisable, if you make it at home.
I’m quite the mayo fan myself, and so buying a sandwich on the go is easy. For my hubby though, it’s not so easy as mayonaise is a big no no, he hates the stuff! Finding a pre made sandwich without lashings of mayo is like finding the golden ticket in Willy Wonka. We were in a shop a few days ago, and he saw a ‘turkey and stuffing with gravy’ and was pleased as punch until he read the small print which said ‘with our stuffing flavoured mayonaise’… even I had to laugh a bit at that, is that taking it a bit too far? I’ve even seen some shops charge you extra for the privilege of having the mayo removed. That’s real nice of them.
So can you settle this for me, bacon sandwich with red or brown sauce, who wins? And do you like your with or without mayo, are you feeling my hubby’s pain, or relishing in the delicious creamy goodness?
