Poll: Sandwich anatomy: where do you like your meat? (96 votes)

Above other toppings: I'm a meatHEAD 2%
Beneath other toppings:Don't get between my meat and my tongue 85%
Screw toppings: Give me a mouthful of meat 13%

Personally, I prefer my meat low down. It's just so much more accessible and intuitive, and you don't block the flavor with the vegetables.

Down low, in my pants.

Top Bun
Ketchup
Cheese
Meat
Bottom Bun

For every meat sandwich. Every time. Nothing else is valid. (wait no, sometimes bacon goes above the cheese.)

Pump the brakes junior. Thats a loaded, and private, question.

#4 Posted by audioBusting (1477 posts) -

Wait, I just realized I put cheese below the meat if it's cold cut, so I guess I voted wrong and it depends.

@audiobusting: That's all right. Some people like it both ways. I'm not one to judge. Curse me for not having more inclusive poll options.

Meat on the bottom. Cheese on top because it gets stuck on the roof of your mouth that way and everybody loves that feeling.

From bottom to top: bread, dressing, meat, cheese, toppings, seasoning, dressing, bread

You know that bit from the Adult Swim station in SR3 about Maggies Grinders? Yeah... like that.

Are we talking about regular sandwiches or hamburgers? Because some people seem to be speaking of both. Cause I wouldn't ever put ketchup in a sandwich, this is just fucking gross. But in a burger? Sure.

Actually, I don't know, and I can't find it. Do you have a link? If not, that's all the more reason for me to go back to SR3 and remove it from my backlog.

But, yeah, I was thinking about regular sandwiches. That said, what is at the heart of this thread is the location of the meat relative to everything else, so burger builds are welcome.

Are hamburgers sandwiches? Head on over to the forums and join the debate.

I don't go for toppings on most sandwiches. Particularly cold sandwhiches: I just want the bare essentials, it'll look something like: Bread, cheese, meat, lots of meat, cheese, bacon if I have any, bread.

For a hot sandwich I'll accept a little lettuce, tomato, and pickles generally on top of the meat, as the first thing I want to taste is the meat.

For a breakfast sandwich I'd make something like: bagel, ham, egg, cheese, bacon, maybe some apple shavings if I'm up to it, bagel.

#20 Posted by LiquidPrince (15842 posts) -

Bread, toppings, meat, cheese, more toppings, bread.

#21 Posted by Hunter5024 (5541 posts) -

I put the cheese above the meat, and then add nothing else. If your sandwich has more than meat and cheese, you're wasting my time with that shit.

#22 Posted by crusader8463 (14413 posts) -
  1. Bottom bread.
  2. One or two of my spreadable toppings like miracle whip, mustard etc.
  3. Meat/cheese.
  4. Pickles/vegetables.
  5. Some other spread like in #2.
  6. Top bread.

The main thing is to have some kind of spread on the inside of each piece of bread to help keep the middle toppings stuck together. Otherwise when you bite down into it, it shoots out everywhere and makes a mess.

I aim for low, but really it depends on what's in the sandwhich. If it's a super slippery sandwich with avocado and shit in it I gotta put the slippery bits near the bun so they don't fly away.

Meat on the bottom always. The only thing that can come between meat and bread is condiments.

#26 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5227 posts) -

I always put the meat at the bottom. It, along with the bread, lays the foundation for the rest of the sandwich.

Meat on the bottom. They're called fillings though, you monster.

I've always been curious to know if Americans ever just eat bread with some toppings on it, or if the sandwich is the one and only instrument for bread consumption?

#30 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3155 posts) -

*rimshot*

Anyway, the meat's a base, dawg. Though I will lay mustard underneath it if there's >1 condiments (e.g. in burgers).

#31 Edited by EarlessShrimp (1631 posts) -

Ummm just in my sandwich? I'll usually put the spreadable condiments on the bread so there's a nice even coating but then I just throw tons of shit inside my sandwich. It's not a real science once you get the bread slices opened up. It's as simple as put the food in the sandwich then put the sandwich into your tummy.

Recipe for latest sandwich fixation:

Whole wheat bread

3-5 slices liverwurst

3-4 slices olive loaf

2-3 slices Land o' Lakes 4 cheese italian blend.

Olive oil and parsley mixed together and spread on top loaf of bread.

Heat if you want, or don't. I don't care.
