Have you played the Sandwich Name Game on the BellaOnline Sandwich Forum? Many people dont play, but they stop by to see what is going on. There have been over 200,000 views of this thread on the forum. Why is it so popular? I think that viewers enjoy seeing just how creative sandwiches can be!
Creating recipes for sandwiches is one of my favorite things to do. However, the posts from the Sandwich Name Game are not recipes; they are ideas for sandwiches. I plan to use the posts, some of which will be edited, for a series of articles about wonderful sandwich ideas.
These Sandwich Ideas articles would not be recipes for sandwiches. Rather, they would be ideas for exciting and interesting sandwiches. Some ideas would have an extensive list of ingredients. Others would have a few ingredients and leave it to your imagination to fill in the blanks.
Some sandwiches fit into the simple retro style. Others showcase vegetables. There are rare ingredients and common ingredients. If you are looking for the beef, this is a good place to find it in a delightful sandwich idea. Vegetarians have their sandwiches, too. In fact, there are hundreds of sandwich ideas in these forum posts.
While some people undoubtedly scroll through looking for ideas, for most of us it would be too time consuming to go through hundreds of forum posts. What would it be like to compile the sandwich ideas? They could be compiled in dozens of different ways. Some of these could be organized by ingredient. Others could be organized by style or type of sandwich. Here are a few ideas about how I plan to compile them.
Sandwiches by meat type:
Beef Pork Lamb - Turkey Chicken Seafood Fish Exotic/Wild Meats Meat Salad - Sausage
Sandwiches by non-meat protein type:
