One of the DVD extras on Spanglish was Thomas Keller talking about (and making) the late-night sandwich he created for the movie (essentially a BLT with a fried egg). It was billed as "the world's greatest sandwich." Hollywood hyperbole aside, it did look damn pretty good (not surprising at all given its creator).
Anyhow, this inspired me to plan a dinner party with three or four (hopefully) exceptional sandwiches as the main course. I'll try Keller's sandwich as well as a smoked salmon club (with a homemade rouille) that I had at La Cachette restaurant (one of the best sandwiches I've personally had in a while).
Anyhow, I'm looking for suggestions for other sandwich recipes to include in the competition.
I guess I want sandwiches that are greater than the sum of their ingredients and are not dominated by a single ingredient (for example, I love making French dip sandwiches with leftover meat from a tenderloin roast, but it is mostly about the quality of the meat, with the bread and jus in supporting roles.) Although any recipes would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
