In some 2000-10s comedy, “bish, make me a sandwich” is a common punchline. It begs the question, what goes in the sandwich?

As a follow up, how does that differ from the sandwich you might make for yourself?

        Yes. Though its dated now. Really didn’t have any bright ideas for an avatar when I joined.

        EDIT: Updated it to match my tenforward.social one.

        • That’s so surprising. Coming from reddit, it was so rare to see people using IRL information in their profile. Is it more common in some lemmy communities?

            I think it depends on personal preference and what kind of user you are.

            If you are going to engage in trolling and just being the kind of person someone wouldn’t want to hire its probably best to hide your identify.

            Likewise of you just want to keep it a secret.

            My identity has been out there on the internet for a long time. Ran a web community, work in IT. I might delve into grayer topics on social media than on LinkedIn, but I try to check myself and ensure I’m considering others and my behavior before allowing myself to just pump raw emotion into comments.

            Not going to claim to be 100% successful at either of those but hey I try.

            I limit what information is shared about me as much as I can afford to given the nature of the industry I work in.

            • Fair enough. I actually respect it and think it might make for a nicer community if more people did it. It’s just so hard for me to relate as someone who has engaged in communities like this for 20+ years completely anonymously.

    Honestly, I don’t. Because I make them better.

    My GF is awesome at many things, some of them includes food. But when it comes to sandwiches I am simply better at making them precisely how I like them.

    And this is where i started a “having said that…”-sentence with the intent of describing the elaborate process of making me the perfect sandwich, but I realize that I can’t be arsed typing it all out. Peace.

      That is the situation in my household. My wife is one of those people who goes overboard on the primary filling and throws the proportions off. It isn’t Katz’s deli levels but it is noticeable.

    OK, here’s what you do, you followin’ me camera guy?

    You take chicken breasts and put them in a ziploc bag with some soy sauce and let them refrigerate overnight.

    The next day, you cube them, skewer them and grill them until done.

    On a large onion bun, you paint one side with hoisin sauce, one side with thai peanut sauce, then you put the chicken on the bun.

    Top with a combination of shredded carrots, cabbage, and purple cabbage, soaked in sweet chili sauce.

    Put the bun together, wrap in foil, serve warm, and enjoy.

    It’s a sandwich so good it can enslave lesser minds.

        Bahn mi, here at any rate, is served on crusty French bread with cilantro and mayo and is pork rather than chicken, but I get the similarity. :)

          Now you both have my undivided attention.

          Partner will never make for me because she’s not a fan of white condiments and thinks cilantro tastes like soap but….

          Both versions sound very interesting.

          Like interesting e ough to consider getting up off my big fat tail and making it myself, imagine that…

          That’s not really a banh mi, banh mi is on a French roll, typically with mayo, paté, various protein options (Vietnamese cold cuts are common, grilled pork/chicken, meatballs/sausage, tofu, etc), pickled carrots and daikon radish, cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeños. At least from my experience. I’m not sure how strict a definition it has, but it definitely comes on a French roll. They’re absolutely delicious, I highly recommend you try one! That other sandwich sounds good too though.

        That’s not really a banh mi, they are baguettes. Also a ton of different “fillings” can go into one of those, so it’s good to be specific.

        Sounds great, though.

    If they made me a real Reuben sandwich, on rye and with the sauce and everything, I’d do anything for them.

    A sandwich I’d make for myself likely just consists of turkey lunchmeat, a few slices of cheese, and some lettuce.

      Hell yes. Not the arbys version - which is tolerable honestly but not exciting - the actual deli version.

        The lean turkey sandwich is vastly more healthy and self-loving than the reuben.

    Hmm, I am the better cook. But assuming we have the materials, a roast beef sandwich with sharp cheddar and horseradish, on rye.

      Easy for the lesser cook, satisfying, and with quite a flavor profile for sliced meat, bread, and a single condiment.

      I might add some mayo, but that’s subject to how good the horseradish is.

      Well played.

    I would be happy for a simple grilled cheese. Pretty hard to mess up, tastes great, quick. Best comfort food! 🙈

      Y’know…. It’s finally been enough years from a certain dirt poor era of my life that sounds really damn good.

      There was a time when I swore off them entirely because it was about all that was in the cupboard for a brutally long time. But yeah, starting to sound really interesting.

    I love her, and she’s a great cook, but she never eats sandwiches or sausages and is helpless at making either.

    The “pro-eato” we used to make at one of my first jobs. Pastrami, turkey, and melted provolone on a toasted onion roll with coleslaw and Russian dressing.

    2 slices of spelt bread, toasted, ( the real one, not colored wheat), miracle whip with a dash of German mustard, thin roasted pork, real Dutch Gouda, thin slice, a bit of salad (optionally with a few thin pieces of beetroot), 2 small tomatoes on the side with good salt and a bunch of mixed freshly ground pepper (red, white, black) on the tomatoes, comes with it a large cacao. There you go.

    In the bit, I imagine she should know his sandwich and its peculiars by then.

    It differs in that someone else makes it while he continues the important work of sitting and drinking.

    I imagine the small mercy in this Al Bundy kinda situation is that his sandwich is probably pretty simple and boring, mayo and baloney sorta thing, instead of a proper lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, oil, peppers, maybe olives and bologna sorta thing.

    If I told her, “bish, make me a sammich!”, I would get a no-sex sammich. It would be all that I get to eat for days, and it would differ from the sandwich I might make for myself by the number of people involved.

    first, she makes some foccacia (she is italian). after slicing a lot of thin slices of mortadella and chilli salami from a local butcher she grates a significant amt of mozzarella. thick slices of tomato with salt and pepper on top, a nice handful of basil and parsley and some kewpie mayo and balsamic glaze over it all.

    put all that in the fresh foccacia and damn, i cant think of anything better.

    edit: i forogt to add some olive oil to the undersides of the bread, and also if im not feeling mortadella, i go champagne ham.

    also, thin slices may be controversial, but thick slices dry out the sandwich for me
