Ploughman sandwich?

seattledebs | May 21, 2007 08:12 PM

I'd like to know how to make a proper ploughman sandwich, and have found Google fairly unhelpful. My boyfriend is half British and really likes them when he's over there.

I bought some Branson's pickle, some really good English cheddar at our recent cheese festival, and made him a sandwich on good crusty bread with butter, lettuce, tomatoes and the above ingredients. He said it tasted delicious, though it wasn't quite a ploughman's. Not being an ingredient-aware type (more a "yum, that was good, whatever it was" type), he couldn't tell me what was different.

He says not to worry, but I'm curious what I might do differently to make an actual ploughman's sandwich. Aside from, of course, handing it to someone with a plough.
