Hands down, a "V and S " Cheese Steak. Sadly, I found their shop closed when I went back to visit my home town over Thanksgiving. I have been eating V and S Cheese Steaks for 50 years. We LIVED for those sandwiches over visits back home. It was one of the things that converted DH from vegetarianism (I cured him of that)... one bite of a cheese steak...tofu, forget it, you are history.

V and S...I miss you.

Bologna, white bread, mustard, potato chips.

Apply mustard to one slice of white bread. Lay on two slices of bologna. Top bologna with potato chips.
Top chips with a slice of white bread. Press the sandwich with the heel of hand to crush chips.
Cut in half, (optional) Enjoy.

I remember watching my Bestie's older sister make this sandwich when I was about nine years old. It took
me years to make my own because my Grandmother, with whom I lived, never bought potato chips.

Today, my favorite is probably a Reuben.

have to smile cause so many people think Bologna is for the poor people or to be fed to the dogs.. I still love a good bologna and cheese sandwich, but I want mustard on one piece of bread and mayo on the other. No, certainly not my favorite, but one of them. I think my favorite is either hamburger or ham and swiss on really good, solid bread like sour dough. Avocado is another and so in Rueben. Oh, and I can't forget liverwurst.

I grew up eating open face sandwiches as my mother is Norwegian, but I don't take quite the elitist view of 'two-slice' sandwiches expressed here.

That said, there is an art to building a sanwich with the proper ratio of bread to meat/filling and when that ratio is off it is usually either too messy or too bready. But I wouldn't say it is uncivilized.

So with this dichotomy of open faced vs. 'two-slice' sandwiches in mind, I will give my favorite of each:

Open face: Jarlsberg and salami on dense, whole wheat bread.
Hon. Mention: Shrimp salad with squirt of lemon juice and sprig of dill on crust of french bread.

Two-slice: Tuna salad with shredded lettuce on hero/hoagie roll.
Hon. Mention: Reuben on rye bread

Oh, yes. A bahn mi with pork is one of the greatest things on earth to me. It would make the top of my list but that spot is reserved for comfort food.

No shredded lettuce for me on any sandwich. Give me a the real thing, not a lot, but not shredded either.

And the (probably apocryphal) Earl of Sandwich origin story is that a sandwich is supposed to be easy to eat, without dirtying a bunch of cooking and eating utensils. Maybe people have gone overboard here and there, but a simple sandwich isn't uncivilized.

So... I like 'em all!
Awwww...

Even so, my favorite probably isn't to be found at the Pioneer Chicken Stand.
