Sandwiches Overwhelmed by Bread

Lynn | Jun 15, 2000 02:55 PM

Chowhounds: Please yea or nay the following statement:

"Too many pre-made store and restaurant sandwiches suffocate their ingredients by surrounding them with thick, often tasteless, wads of mouth-stretching breads; ie, foccaccia, ciobatta, etc."

Am I alone in yearning for a sandwich highlighted by its ingredients--not its wrapper?

And, yes! I do often use my imagination and make my own sandwiches--with rye, etc. And, of course, I wait in lines to custom-order. And I HAVE tried wraps (tho I don't particularly love them.) But I do wish the store-bought stuff was more imaginative (so little variety) and not so focused on heavy bread.

Opinions from other sandwich eaters would be much appreciated.
