Fans Show Us Their Guilty Food Pleasures: All About Sandwiches
A far cry from ordinary PB&Js, the next-level sandwiches popping up at restaurants across the country are no longer relegated to combinations of squishy bread and moist cold cuts; instead they're piled high with everything from runny egg yolks to pickled vegetables. On yesterday's brand-new episode of Guilty Pleasures, Rachael Ray and Curtis Stone faced off in a battle of the between-bread beauties: She showed off one craveworthy selection featuring a heaping helping of french fries in the middle, and he opted for another creation, which came compete with seemingly all of the Italian meats at the deli.
Recently Food Network asked you to tell us about your best-ever sandwich eats, and in true superfan fashion, you delivered in droves, with comments and photos of piled-high plates that range from wake-up-worthy breakfast bites to a super-meaty selection. When it comes to all things on bread, there's no denying you all know how to indulge. Keep scrolling below to see FN Dish's favorite selections.
@thecommunityplate has dubbed the turkey-arugula sandwich pictured above "'drool-worthy,'" and we're quick to agree. Bonus: There's a layer of smoked Gouda in there for indulgent gooiness.
Not just for lunch, sandwiches can be devoured in the morning hours, too, like @thomastank34 proves with this breakfast beauty stuffed with corned beef and hash.
The sweet and savory worlds collide into one over-the-top sandwich from @silvergrillcafe. This "Monti Cristo" features a cinnamon roll in the style of French toast, and it's layered with deli selects like ham, bacon and Swiss for a meaty bite.
Sandwiches come in all shapes and sizes, including open-faced varieties, like these topped slices from @amishah00.
It looks like Thanksgiving has come early for @realtoneedmonds, who stuffed leftovers of the all-American meal between two pieces of bread for an overflowing sandwich.
