Perhaps the only slide show you will ever view that is completely worth it.

That's a mighty fine sandwich.

Two things though:

1) I wouldn't smash it down as heavily as they suggest.

2) There's no way I could let that bad boy sit overnight. Unless it's midnight and I also just had dinner. :D

You want it cohesive - the smashing is necessary. People are over cautious about food temps in situations like this one. It's all cooked. The bacteria growth in a home running 60 to 65 F is not going to be crazy in 12 hours in a dish like that.

Remember, until recently all of our ancestors routinely left cooked meat out overnight. You hang your darned deer and pheasants, don't you? ;)

And the only food I ever see hanging is when I walk into the butcher's shop.

Some hideous English veggie?

Why would anyone need a side with a sandwich like that?

A kosher dill would do it.

That's about it; that sandwich is a complete meal.

I was bad today, I ate 5 junior burgers but Duke got a couple bites from each one. When I am really hungry I could eat that sandwich.

The pickled mustard Vegetables are just for health appearances ,although tasty .The English have a tradition for meat pies and a sandwich in a round bread loaf is an natural extension .

Crap, I thought it was a kind of potato salad I wouldn't touch with a rival sibling's fork at the dinner table..

You're right - a most excellent slide show. I just finished breakfast and I STILL want one.

It looks both tasty and easy. I can instantly see the need for this sandwich on picnics or during ski season or any time really. :)
