r/Askreddit can be a goldmine when it comes to info on a wide scape.

I sat staring at my phone with my usual sandwich at lunchtime and saw on r/AskReddit that people were asking with two separate post about what goes on a sandwich.

One that asks what ruins a sandwich and one asking what ingredients making a sandwich go from boring to amazing. I always want to be in the sandwich discussion because its one of two of my favorite foods, the other is Asian American cuisine.

The normal food eater would tell you it is hard to mess up a sandwich because of how simple it is, but to the initiated, if you mess up a sandwich, it could take a one way trip to the trash. We'll break down what works with people and what doesn't and I'll pick that to make a sandwich for lunch tomorrow. I'll roll the dice so you don't have to. I mean, if you want to as well, that's cool too.



They decided what ruins a sandwich.

Main reasons for some of these has to do with texture, freshness, and consistency

  • Soggy tomatoes
  • Large chunks of meat
  • Hair
  • Inconsistent spread of condiments
  • Miracle Whip
  • Sand
  • Raisins
  • Wet lettuce
  • Celery

Some ingredients or elements will indeed ruin a sandwich, others are up to personal taste. I'll let you decide.



Making a sandwich go from boring to amazing.

I feel some of these should be standard practice, but they seem to be game changers on reddit.

  • Toasting the bread/ panini
  • Grilled veggies
  • wrapping in deli paper
  • oil and vinegar
  • Cutting in half diagonally
  • Good bread
  • sprouts
  • spritzing with pickle juice
  • cheese

Love or hate these ingredients, they all still constitute a bona fide sandwich whether they deserve to be on a sandwich or not, you'll have to let me know what you think of these short lists.

Tomorrow, I'll be having it toasted on whole wheat bread with thinly sliced turkey and ham. Accompanied with grilled veggies of sorts, sprouts instead of lettuce, cheese, a spritz of pickle juice and some miracle whip.

Sans hair and/or raisins, thank you.
