Another “big” break from sandwiches. It’s been a couple of weeks of lots of work/stress, broken network and forgotten sandwich ordering (that is, forgetting to order). This one was a rather modest small one, with a premiere for the horseradish 🙂

After 5 days with no sandwiches (no custom ones, that is) I was HUNGRY! This monster of a sandwich made me full and happy. With 7 kinds of meat this is one of the bigger and heavier ones.

Granary Sandwich with
– Sliced Boiled Egg
– Poached Salmon
– Smoked Salmon
– Crab Mayo
– Mozzarella
– Cream Cheese
– Basil
– Sun-Blushed Tomatoes

Delicious return to the long neglected seafood category. While they are never that big (just aren’t as many option, and they are much pricier), I’m getting pretty sure these are my favourites for the sheer tastiness. Happy to report that the Sun-Blushed Tomatoes in fact go very very well with the Salmon. I wasn’t sure if it would have been too powerful.

A very pretty and solid sandwich today. Large enough not only to get two boxes, but also to slick together. Helps that all or most of the ingredients are slice shaped as opposed to crumbly Stilton and Feta (especially combined with egg as well). Very tasty, one of the few Stilton free days and a happy return of the Branston Pickle.

– Sliced Boiled Egg
– Onion
– Basil
– Sun-Blushed Tomatoes

I like to combine the sharp and contrasting tastes such as the sweet honey, the hot chilli and chilli jam and the tangy Stilton. The meats and other ingredients all add their own subtle beauties to this great symphony of food 🙂

Experimenting with an alternative chicken which paid off very nicely. Superb combined with Stilton and chilli jam. The mozzarella adds a subtle and creamy edge (a smooth edge so to say).

I’ve realised there are two approaches to get a sandwich that isn’t too squished. Either make it small-ish (like the one yesterday or even small :-o) which obviously isn’t an ideal approach that will only limit your imagination; Or make it so big they can’t possibly fit it in a normal (triangular) box. The one two days ago achieved this and was delivered in a “jacket potato box” (like a kebab box) and this one today arrived in two separate regular boxes. The only problem with the one today was that a lot of the filling was quite loose and eating it was difficult (though fun and very tasty).
