Happy Birthday Sandwich!!

I just have to share this article on the BBC news today with you today….have sandwiches really only been in existence for 250 years? Invented by the Earl of Sandwich because he couldn’t be bothered to leave his game of cards for his normal formal meal??

Perhaps only in the upper classes at that time…

Croque Monsieur...dribbling yet?

Croque Monsieur…dribbling yet?

I’m finding this hard to believe because bread has been around forever….I’m intrigued and will do more research on this 😉

One of my favourite things in the world is the sandwich, brown or white bread, fresh bread or toasted, buns, baguettes, ciabatta, pitta – can a hamburger be classed as a sandwich?? Your thoughts are welcome….meanwhile my thoughts are wandering….roast beef and English mustard (or horseradish), creamy not-quite hardboiled egg mayo with fresh mustard cress, light and refreshing cucumber, turkey and tangy cranberry, the classic BLT, roast chicken with mayo and rocket, a croque monsieur (or madame), tuna salad, prawn mayonnaise with iceberg lettuce, smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels, mature cheddar (or gouda) cheese with cherry tomatoes or onion chutney, chilli chicken with roast peppers, crisp little gem lettuce and the slighest hint of lime, falafel with garlic sauce on toasted pitta or something more exotic….ok….you get the point!

What’s your favourite?
