It is amazing what you can find on a rainy afternoon, surfing the net. Sandwiches are normally a safe option for a quick lunch but these concoctions are about to change the way we think about sandwiches forever:
Sweet and savory together are not normally an accepted mix for sandwiches but this one pushes the boundaries. It is a burger, with all the toppings, squeezed in between a glazed doughnut….
2. The Lasandwich
Lasagna is a dish best served hot with a loaf of garlic bread. This one is cold and squashed between two slices of doughy white bread. Apparently, Tesco has followed this up with another one – the Strawberries and Cream sandwich. I will leave you to make up your own mind about that…
3. The McDonald Sandwich
This one is only for those that have deep pockets and am indulgent bank manager – or more money than sense! Created by a chef called Scott McDonald, it is a combination of Wagyu beef, black truffle mayonnaise, fresh lobe foie gras, rocket, brie de meaux, English plum tomatoes and a red pepper and mustard confit. The price? Only £85.
Love sandwiches? Hate bread? No problem Try the KFC Special. It is made from fried chicken fillets, between which you will find bacon, sauce and 2 cheeses. No bread in sight!
5. The Big Sandwich
Bread adds to the fat content of a sandwich in quite a big way, and this one just takes the biscuit. It has burgers, sausages, pepperoni, bacon, cheese, chicken nuggets, crisps and, oh just so many ingredients to mention that all total around 50,000 calories!
6. The TastyKake Sandwich
TastyKakes in a sandwich? These sweet peanut butter tasting sponge cakes covered in chocolate were surely never meant to be sandwiched into a cheeseburger. Apparently, they were and were served as a dish at a restaurant in Philadelphia.
7. The Melo
Sandwiches should always be filled with a generous amount of filling but this one from a Deli in New York is bit too big. It is full of salami, pastrami and bacon and was named after Carmelo Anthony, a player for the Knicks.
8. The Candwich
The sandwich in a can is as bad as it sounds. It has a long shelf life, does not need to go in the refrigerator and contains an odd mélange of fillings, including pepperoni pizza and BBQ chicken.
This has to be the oddest sandwich on the list. It is built, as the name suggests, like a Rubik’s Cube and is made of cubes of cold meat and cheese. Quite difficult to eat, one would imagine…
10. The Fried Brain Sandwich
Yes, you read it right; this sandwich is made from sliced calf brain, fried in batter. It is apparently a meal that is commonly served in mid-western eateries and they are very welcome to it!
