A couple weeks ago on Serious Eats out of NYC I asked the question, “What’s your favorite simple sandwich?” I felt I needed to explain what I felt a simple sandwich was:
When you want a simple sandwich, what do you make? PB&J? Ham and Swiss with mayo on white bread? Grilled cheese with one slice of cheese and some butter? No Reubens please, even that’s too elaborate an answer for this question …
So far there are 51 responses to that question. I also answered it myself by talking about my own favorite, which is liverwurst or Braunschweiger (i.e., smoked liverwurst), SE reader PerkyMac followed up my question with, “Liverwurst: *Way* or *No Way*?”
The responses to these rather simple questions have shown one thing; People either really like liverwurst or Braunschweiger ir they really, seriously dislike them. There doesn’t seem to be any in-between. Some people have unfortunately had horrible experiences in their childhood having to do with some seriously nasty products.
These people obviously cannot be saved.
There seems to be an overabundance of people who like various kinds of egg sandwiches though. I’ve often wondered how a Braunschweiger Omelet would go over.
Maybe an Egg & Braunschweiger sandwich?
I’ll have to work on that.
