Cold Sandwiches

1. Simple cold sandwiches are those made with two slices of bread or two halves of a roll, a spread, and a filling.They are called simple because they are made with just two slices of bread, not because they are necessarily simple in construction. Simple cold sandwiches range from a single slice of cheese or meat between two slices of buttered bread to complex constructions like the submarine sandwich (also called a hero sandwich or grinder), a long Italian roll filled with salami,ham, capocollo,mortadella or bologna,provolone cheese,peppers,onions,olives,toma-toes,and more.

Most popular sandwiches fall into this category.

2. Multidecker sandwiches are made with more than two slices of bread (or rolls split into more than two pieces) and with several ingredients in the filling.

The club sandwich is a popular multidecker sandwich, made of three slices of toast and filled with sliced chicken or turkey breast, mayonnaise,lettuce, tomato, and bacon. It is cut into four triangles, as shown in Figure 22.1.

3. Open-faced sandwiches are made with a single slice of bread, like large canapés, which is what they are. Like those in canapés, the filling or topping should be attractively arranged and garnished. Canapé ingredients and method are discussed in Chapter 23.

4. Tea sandwiches are small, fancy sandwiches generally made from light, delicate ingredients and bread that has been trimmed of crusts. They are often cut into fancy shapes. Fillings and spreads can be the same as those for canapés.

5. Wraps are sandwiches in which the fillings are wrapped, like a Mexican burrito,in a large flour tortilla or similar flatbread.They may be served whole or cut in half if large.

(b) Cut the sandwiches into quarters from corner to corner. Plate the sandwich with the points up.
