What is your favourite proper sandwich? You would think that was a simple question, but in our house it caused a bit of debate. English Provender sent us their new Proper Pickles and challenged us to come up with the best "proper sandwich." We started by tasting the pickles and deciding that they were all delicious and are just the thing for a Boxing Day cold meats buffet. Then came the harder part of deciding on the best proper sandwich.
We agreed on a few things. Firsty, a thick and crusty tiger bread was the bread of choice. Butter instead of margarine. Ice Gem Lettuce with a layer of mayonaisse.
My husband felt that cooked ham and cheddar cheese with the chunky proper pickle was the way to go.
He was right, it tasted good. Full of flavour. Exceedingly British.
I opted for the Beetroot Proper Pickle. Thickly spread on a layer of roast beef.
We tasted both sandwiches. They were both delicious. But at last we were in joint agreement. Our Proper Pickle Sandwich had to be the Beef and Beetroot Proper Pickle.
