    Default How do you make a sandwich?

    DH is home today and is making us lunch and once again we have a light hearted argument over sandwiches. I insist the way you layer the fillings matter and makes a difference to the taste where he swears it doesn't matter as it all tastes the same. So to settle this argument once and for all I am asking for opinions, does the order of the fillings make a difference to the way the sandwich taste?

    Certain placements matter, but not all. Lettuce should always be on top directly next to the bread, meat on bottom always, and tomato and beetroot should never be directly next to bread as it causes it to go soggy.

    Well it was a ham, cheese, tomato, alpha sprout, Mayo and avocado sandwich (in the order from bottom to top) and he insists that if he put that in any order it would taste the same.

    Any order will taste exactly the same yes. HOWEVER putting soggy things (like the tomato) near the bread could ruin the texture of the bread. The actual "taste" wouldn't change, but it would be less appetising due to bread becoming soggy.

    But having 2 ingredients next to each other for example say beetroot and tomato can enhance the taste but having cheese and beetroot next to each other will be different because the cheese will overpower the beetroot. Or maybe I am just a little bit crazy to assume this matters lol

    YES!

    Tomato and beetroot should never be placed together and neither should be placed next to the bread if possible.
    Salt and pepper should go on the tomato.
    Onion should go next to the tomato too.
    Cucumber is not necessary as lettuce does the same job. Same goes for alfalfa.
    Bread MUST be doughy fresh.
    Fillings MUST go across the whole sandwich and not piled up in a pyramid.
    Ideally if there is avo and tomato then the avo should be spread on the top slice of bread and on this occasion it's acceptable to have the tomato (with the salt and pepper) next to the bread.

    Australians have THE BEST salad sandwiches in the world. It is one of the things I craved when living overseas (9 years in total). The great Aussie Salad Sandwich is iconic and should be revered as such.

    This 100%. I never thought I cared so much about my sandwich fillings until I found myself nodding along to each of your points!!

    Yes order matters! Especially condiments. The condiments should go under the meat not next to the salad, and the cheese (if included) should be the separating layer between meat and salad!
