Untapped Grilling and Other Addictions

The Sandwich

The Good Ole’ Days

Remember this stuff? Brings back some really good memories of growing up back in Mississippi. My mother used this stuff for filler. Most of you probably don’t understand what filler is. But filler is what a lower middle class mother stacks up on the dinner table for the younguns to stuff themselves because 1 lb. of hamburger meat ain’t goin to fill up a family of seven. Well thank the good Lord that there are much better things to do with this and they are called Sandwiches! 

Today I am going to give you my Top Ten Sandwiches of all time, along with a couple of secrets you may want to try the next time you whip one of these up. So here we go:

One thought on “The Sandwich

  1. Jeff Van Zanten on said:


    While in general I agree with your listing I do think that your Southern roots place too much importance to the Fried Bologna and Tuna Melt. I do applaud your review of the underappreciated Monte Christo, the sublime Philly Cheesesteak (though Whiz is the key, not Fontina), and of course a pulled pork sandwich using smoked butt. (BTW the best Cole Slaw to put on a pulled pork is KFC)

    But Jimbo, how the hell are you missing the classic French Dip, served with a Sourdough Roll, au jus that is not too salty, and the extra pop of melted Swiss cheese.

    Nonetheless I will eat a sandwich with you anytime.
