  1. OMG what a question I do not need soooo much money to make my perfect sandwich but it is a bit weird! Ok so some kind of bread or panini or bagel or whatever, first comes butter, then marmite (look it up), then cheddar cheese, then thiiiiiin slices of beetroot and apple and also to top it off Branston Pickle…! LOVELY!

  2. Hmm. Five thou . . . My perfect sandwich would start with:
    Purchasing two round-trip tickets to Bangor, Maine, along with a car rental (compact, no need to be greedy) for my husband and I.
    Lodging in any chain motel (Super 8, Motel 6, et cetera).
    Exploring the coast, Stephen King’s house in Bangor, maybe a trip to Canada.
    Once I have eaten authentic Maine lobster rolls, plus any other northeastern fare, I would hit the nearest grocery store and purchase one loaf of bread, a pound of bacon, several Roma tomatoes (or whatever’s available), a jar of Miracle Whip, and a knife. I would then go back to the motel room and assemble a BLT, my perfect sandwich.

    Come on, you can’t go wrong with bacon.

  3. If I had much money , my perfect sandwich would be a huge Raclette sandwich.
    I explain to you: It is a baguette with pieces of potatoes , Raclette(cheese spread ),diced bacon.
    It would be heaven on earth lol
    It is not cool to make you think of your perfect sandwich.
    Because not only you can’t eat it but also you get fat.(laughing)

  4. Unfortunately (or fortunately) my perfect sandwich doesn’t require $5000, but I can try to imagine a very tasty, expensive sandwich for this exercise:

    Sourdough bread, fermented for 24 hours with flakes of silver baked into it for energy
    Butter from Petra, the cow that supplies all butter for Thomas Keller’s restaurants
    Italian white alba truffled mayonnaise with saffron, chopped quail eggs, almas caviar
    Dijon mustard (from that area in France that’s up to $800/jar) infused with samundari khazana curry
    Goji berry and Chteau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1996 compote
    A healthy slice of Caciocavallo Podolico
    Seared Wagyu beef with Matsutake Mushrooms
    Arugula
    Sliced tomatoes

  5. $5000 to spend on a sandwich? Alright, for the first $3.95 I had the BEST tuna melt at my favorite little beach club in Oceanside, CA. It was a cold tuna mix with relilsh, topped with hot melted provolone cheese, tomatoes sprinkled with basil on toasted light rye bread. Yum!! The remaining $4,996.05 can go to provide clean water to 3rd world countries.

  8. 100% whole wheat bread, 1 slice
    2 Tbsp. really good peanut butter, that doesn’t taste like burnt pinot beans or soy beans
    1 dill pickle spear from my mother-in-law’s recipe, preferably aged about y months.
    Spread peanut butter on bread and fold it around the pickly spear.
    Best eaten with chicken noodle soup.
    You may think I am kidding and you may not believe me, but with good ol’ Sam, I say, “Try it! Try it! And you may!”

  10. My perfect sandwich? A mustard/pickles/sliced swiss cheese/sliced ham sub sandwich sitting on top of a pile of whatever is left of the $5,000 after making this simple good sandwich. That would be the perfect sandwich. Eat it and spend the leftover money on more important stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. My perfect sandwich would be: Roasted turkey breast, slice of sweet onion,
    black olives, roasted sweet red pepper, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on stoned ground whole wheat bread. A glass of sweet tea on the side and that’s good eating.

  13. Geez, what a load of different answers! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’d go with no bread. Maybe a tortilla wrap or those rice puff thingies. Lots of veggies and chicken/turkey breast or tuna.
    What can I say, diet is a sandwich’s worst enemy. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Spiritual sandwich? Love, happiness, trust, honesty, selfesteem.

  14. Dont see the reason why a sandwich can cost $5000,unless it has a sprinkling of good old diamonds over the poached eggs..here’s mine: some really good wholewheat bread slapped with farm fresh butter. A layer of ham with some lettuce for extra crunch. Fresh tomatoe slices, another layer of ham for good measure, some horseradish with tonnes of black pepper to top it all off.Then a trip to New York to eat this with Trey Songz..you said we’ve got $5000 right;-)

  15. The perfect sandwich is far less complicated that everyone here seems to be making it, so here are the “proper” instructions for obtaining the “perfect” sandwich:
    First, consider your location:
    If you are in the south, head to Central Grocery at 923 Decatur Street, French Quarter, New Orleans and have yourself a Muffuletta.
    If you are in the northeast, go to New York and find a real deli and order practically any sandwich they have, or head to Philadelphia and head for Pat’s or Geno’s for a Philly Cheese Steak.
    If you’re in the central north, go to Chicago and find someplace that sells Italian beef sandwiches.
    If you’re more centrally located, head to Edmond, Oklahoma, and find Hobby’s Hoagies. (You could also see if there are any Sub Stops left in OKC. Best I can say about City Bites is that they aren’t SubWay.)
    Any place else, pray that you at least have a Lenny’s Sub Shop, Panera Bread, Schlotzky’s, or McAlister’s Deli somewhere in your area.
