I've never made humous although it's one of those things I keep thinking I should give a go.  Love the plain and lemon and coriander ones.  Had always steered clear of the roasted pepper one as I have an bit of an aversion to cooked capsicums but a colleague gave me some at work recently and it was gorgeous!  I had one of those 'what have I been missing all these years' epiphany moments! Doh

Back to sandwiches I also love brie and avocado, mm mm mmm.  Again it's got to have mayo in it.  :yes:

Oh yes, Brie and avocado sammiges taste wonderful.

I'll try that again!

Oh no – we just missed British Sandwich Week!  How strange that you should start this thread immediately after that Danny, something subliminal perhaps?!

Isn't that really weird, Ruth?

The thought that brought on the topic was simply how good Fiona's sandwiches are and how much I enjoyed the chicken filling from the hot counter. We had another one this week Next week will be chicken and ham. I like that combo.

As kids, our fav was cheese and sliced apple. I have never heard of that combo since then. It is really good.

Oh Danny, you have reminded me of a birthday party I went to as a child. We were served tinned orange sandwiches. The bread was triangular and buttered before the oranges were put on top. The sandwiches were delicious. I have never ever had them again, but the memory lingers.

I would hazard a guess, Danast, that childhood tastes are probably best not revisited Big_Laugh

Oh, childhood sammiges - condensed milk was one, tomato ketchup another, then there was Golden syrup or plain sugar ones.  Ick ick and ick!  Back then they were great though.  I forgot crushed crisp ones!

I'll try that again!

Condensed milk??!!!!  Excuse me… [Image Can Not Be Found] 

I'd have crisp ones though!

For a toasted sarnie cheese and mushroom is a winner for me, cook the mushrooms first though or they won't be done.  Ooh – I may have to consider a toastie maker, haven't had one for years.

My next sister up used to have for her school lunch; sandwiches made with toast filled with cottage cheese.  By the time you got to lunchtime they'd be cold and soggy.  How she ate them I have no idea, the very thought of them turns my stomach even now.

I agree with you on the condensed milk...I'm not averse to a bit of cold toast - but filled with cottage cheese? 

As for toasted sandwiches, I use my ridged pan and a weight on top, less mess than a toastie maker and easier to clean up.

I'll try that again!

What a good idea, TA - never thought of that!

Thanks BS!  It is also cheaper since electricity is dearer than gas.  As you might imagine, I hate washing up!

I'll try that again!

I don't have a ridged pan - boo!  Another of those things I've coveted for a while but can't justify the expenditure on.  Not even in TK Max.  Perhaps just frying it'd work - none of them are particularly healthy lets face it.  Big_Laugh

Ruth, I bought mine in IKEA (that was whispered btw, just in case anyone throws a hissy fit Big_Laugh ), and, so far, it's been brilliant - as TA says, less washing up! Ok
