I don't eat a lot of sandwiches. I usually have leftovers for lunch or salad, etc. Plus, I'm just not really overfond of sandwiches.Growing up Dad loved a ham sandwich on white bread with loads of mayo. And a LOT of ham -- as thick as a slice of bread. But when Mom made sammies for me and my sister, she used a lot less meat and I liked that better. But it always with mayo - until I discovered that I also liked ham with mustard!!When I lived in Sydney a dozen years ago, I noticed that when you ordered a sandwich at the local deli, you got a slice or two of meat and a slice of cheese and your choice of all kinds of shredded veggies, etc. Most folks had more "salad" on the sandwich than meat. I came to really like that. And most people ordered the sandwich with butter on the bread (or mustard) - I don't recall ever hearing anyone order mayo!Here in the US most delis use enough meat for at least two or three sandwiches!!!What I do on the rare occasion that I have a sandwich at home is actually have half a sandwich - and I cut the slice of bread (or half of a roll) in half so that I have two small open-faced pieces. I butter the bread, put the cheese on, then the "salad" and put the meat - usually a slice of ham or turkey - on top.This came to mind today because I had a ham and muenster cheese sammy for lunch -- or rather half a sammy.
