Earthshaking Cutting Edge Sandwich Survey

Sure it is! Well, anyway, we've probably all seen those commercials for sandwich spreads where a pair of model's perfect hands peels back the corner of an artfully arranged sandwich and adds a smear of mayo to a lettuce leaf, then closes up the sandwich while a voice over tells us how incomplete our life will be if we don't use this product. It always leaves me wondering what kind of (supply your own descriptive here) puts the mayo on the lettuce instead of the bread!

And that led this idle mind to all sorts of ponderings on how people put together their sandwiches. More specifically, how and where they apply the dressings?

I'll admit to being something of an obsessive compulsive. Whatever the spread -- mayo, mustard, butter, peanut butter, sour cream, jelly, you name it -- it MUST cover the entire slice of bread, crust to crust, top to bottom, side to side. But I've had friends who just smear it on any old way and it doesn't matter a bit whether every bite of sandwich will have everything in it.

So I'm wondering how the rest of you make your sandwiches? A dab in the middle? A dab on the lettuce? Wall to wall, and maybe in laters? How do you do it?
