impromptu and unusual bread toppings

When I was young we made use of anything at hand for a sandwich filling. Some sounds quite common like the last fried egg from breakfast and some not so common like mashed new england style baked beans on whole wheat bread with a slice of pickle. Scraping the dripping from the cold pork roast pan was good if mama didn't get after us.

Any leftover salad with great crunch makes a great sandwich. Chopped cheese,parmesan,sunflower seeds,egg,beans or cottage cheese makes a great protein additive.


Peanut butter and banana is a good second for favs.

Sardines and dill pickles between two slices of buttered bread.  You can lay the whole sardines between the slices with thinly sliced dill pickles or mash the sardines.  You can also chop up the pickles with the sardines and make a spread.

Cream equal amounts of butter and marmite into a light brown mixture. Smear on two slices of bread. Embed sliced banana (1/8" thick). Yum!

you toast the bread and slice the pickles, an old standby of my cousins, he loved them and turned the whole family on to them. I've also heard of doing them with cheese, which would be good too!

When I'm heating or cooking spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, etc, I can't resist tearing off a hunk of French bread, adding some butter and dipping it into the bubbling sauce.
