Open-faced sandwichs

There is no such thing. It is either a sandwich or it is not. If it is "open-faced," it is NOT. It is then a messy pile of food given a name by, I assume, Vikings looking for an excuse to eat with their hands in good company. I will give you three examples of proof-

1- If there was a car that blew through a red light while there was heavy traffic and was hit simultaneoulsly by only two cars, was he "sandwiched?" Well, what if there was only one car that hit him? Was he still "sandwiched?"

2- If a football player went around the line of scrimmage while running with the ball and was tackled by only one defenseman, was he "sandwiched?"

3- During the 70's for a short period of time there was a "sandwich" body on Les Pauls (a type of guitar) that had TWO pieces of mahogany "sandwiched" together. Since all of the others are not "sandwich" bodies, am I to assume that all of our bodies are solid "open-faced" mahogany bodies?


"Open-faced sandwich" is an oxymoron made-up by oxes and morons. One must have a minimum of three total items to sandwich something- two on the outside and something in the middle.

Rant NOT off, bring it!

Okay, how do explain the "club" sandwich, with three pieces of bread?

Whoa....Let me collect my thoughts on that one.




Okay- I don't have a problem with that one because it doesn't make any obvious offensive anti-sandwich statements within itself. Especially compared to the "open-faced" fiasco as stated above. I think the word "club" is more of a genre of sandwiches and still utilizes multiple layers.

By your own definition, the following would be a sandwich (I’m not gonna squander this opportunity to share a great recipe):

Ingredients listed from bottom up:
Toasted sourdough bread
Mayo
Chicken breast (pounded flat, lightly floured, seasoned, and sauteed in olive oil & butter)
Tomato slices
Blanched asparagus spears
Gruyere cheese (put in broiler until cheese melts)
Optional: hollandaise sauce on top of melted cheese

Here we have bread and cheese-hollandaise on the outside, chicken, tomato, and asparagus on the inside.

:lol2

I was involved in a sandwich situation once, and I'm pretty sure there was something open.

As a Norwegian American I take great exception at the derogatory connotation given to the word "Viking" ....

One of the items in the middle happens to be another piece of bread. :)spin

Really, as long there's bread on both sides and one could in theory pick up said food item, then it's a sandwich. (overstuffed or leaky sandwiches may defy picking up, but that's no fault of theirs)

I'm Danish, and was thinking about what the Danes have contributed to American culture. All I could come up with were pastry , Victor Borge, and Neve Campbell
(not necessarily in that order!;) ).

Iceland?! That's where the wimps crapped out on their way to the New World! (This is really non-PC considering the season, isn't it?)

You're not going to go up to Minnesota and picket to have their name changed, are you?

Now that I have had some time to think about it, I wonder if a hot dog is a sandwich. A hamburger is because it has a top AND bottom bun with a burger- or meat-like product- in the middle. While the hot dog has meat- or some alledged edible product- in the middle, there is only one bun. Sometimes the bun breaks in half to create a top and bottom. Then it would be a sandwich. But unless the bun breaks in half, I believe we have another sandwich offender. Of course, this holds true for all sub-style buns- regardless of contents.

Have you pondered the calzone? Edible stuff completely encased in bread? What about the pot pie?

Neither are sandwiches. Both delicious, but not sandwiches.

And while we are on it, what is a deep-fried calzone called? They are the biggest lump of slime I have ever eaten, but awesome!
