Nancy, If it's not too late to add to the childhood sandwiches, I would like
to add mine. It was the same as my dad's favorite sandwich, and that was
bologna and strawberry preserves. My aunt ate a mixture of mustard and mayo
in a jar in the refrigerator. Then spread some on a slice of bread, slice
onions thin, and add salt and pepper, and top with another slice of bread.
Grandpa ate blue cheese sandwiches. My ex showed me how good potato chips
piled high on bread with thick cold butter. My one uncle liked spaghetti
sandwiches. Another (and this is REALLY good) grape jelly with brown gravy,
on bread. The woman who mentioned cream cheese with sliced green olives
wasn't so strange. The original Heloise had a recipe for olive-nut spread,
which contained cream cheese, mayo, stuffed green olives, and pecans. Grind
up and spread on bread. VERY good!! Oh, wow, the memories!!
Nowdays I like grilled cheese and sliced onion sandwiches! Also, sunnyside
up egg on bread, with a slice of cheese, mustard and ketchup. Smush down
with second slice of bread. An awesome breakfast sandwich!
Trish in Illinois~
I cannot recall seeing this sandwich
listed on the list. I used to (and still do at times) make a biscuit
sandwich made with bacon or sausage spread with jelly or jam. Strawberry is
my favorite but I also like them with grape or blackberry.

I used to love Miracle Whip with hotdog
relish on soft white bread. No one else likes them and now neither do Ii,
A fond memory I had when I was a child
at home was eating cold corn bread, mustard and a big piece of left over
salt meat. Sometimes I would eat the corn bread and mustard without the
meat. Just depended on if there was any leftovers. Another favorite of mine
and still is, a hot home made biscuit, real molasses and butter mixed
together. Growing up as a share croppers daughter we ate a lot of things
that now would be considered unhealthy. But it must not have hurt us to bad
my granny lived to 92 and Im nearly 70.
I have been enjoying the whole childhood sandwich thing, it is really fun to
see what people enjoy. I also grew up in the 50's and had many a sandwich of
mayo an lettuce. My husbands favorite growing up was raw hamburger
sandwiches with onion and salt and pepper. I liked them too, but today you
can't even have your hamburger rare much less raw! His favorite now is
salami, p-nut butter and onion. My father liked mashed potato sandwiches but
his favorite was a bacon grease sandwich on home made bread! Never tried
that one myself, today my cholesterol would not take it! Thanks for all your
work on this newsletter, it really is a highlight for many people everyday.
Love your cat stories too. Always good for a smile.
Kotton in MN
Regarding childhood sandwiches: Not
mine, but my oldest daughter's favorite was white bread spread with peanut
butter and chocolate syrup poured over and another slice of bread. (Sounds
like a peanut butter cup, doesn't it?)
Terry from FL
Hi Nancy -- I've tried to respond to
several requests in the past, but for some reason my computer wouldn't send
it. I sure hope you get this.
I've been reading about all the different sandwiches and thought I'd add my
When I was in grade school, we used to split a biscuit, salt and pepper the
inside, put it back together and eat. That was very good. Also poked a hole
in the side and poured syrup from a tin bucket in -- now THAT was good. We
didn't have store bought bread then. Later in high school, we had most of
the ones listed, but my favorite was made with store bought bread,
mayonnaise and sliced pineapple.
When the brother after me was born, he made it into the medical history
books, but I wont go into that. But the specialist told my mom that when we
wanted something to drink to give us Coca Cola. By the time I got married in
'52, my dad had a special permit from the coke company and the truck came
down to our house twice a week and dad got 17 cases of cokes --that's 34
cases a week. 6 kids and 2 adults. Drinking cokes came to a screeching halt
when I got married. And no, I didn't go through withdrawal.
Love getting this newsletter, and enjoy your four-legged family's antics.
I'm allergic to cats and dogs so don't have any. Sure would like to.
Hi everyone, With everyone writing about
their favorite sandwiches when they were children, brought to mind the love
of homemade bread, the smell, and mostly the TASTE. Since my breadmaker went
on the fritz, I haven't made any bread. Would any of you fabulous cooks have
a TNT recipe? I'm open to white, whole wheat or just your favorite, any
kind! I love to receive Nancy's e-mail with everyone's favorite recipe and
Julie BC Canada
Just realized today that I hadn't been
receiving your newsletters for about a week now. I have been so busy with
wedding planning and starting a new job, that I haven't had time to even
think about it. Not a big deal, because I know where to go online to read
them! But it is my favorite email to get each day. And I had to add my two
cents worth on silly sandwiches. My mom always ate raw potato sandwiches
with a little salt and pepper, and sometimes a slice of raw onion. And we
ate our share of scrambled egg sandwiches with ketchup. There were seven of
us kids and we didn't know that we were as they say now "income challenged".
We had lots of chickens so we ate LOTS of eggs. To this day, eggs are NOT
one of my favorite things to eat.
Have a super day, and thanks to everyone who has sent in recipes and ideas
for the wedding reception. If anyone has any nifty inexpensive ideas for
table centerpieces with a snowflake theme, I'd love to hear them!!
Kathy Clark in SW Kansas
Nancylanders: Just remembered another
sandwich, which happens to be my favorite all time sandwich ever. During
WWII, my aunt Ferne lived with our family while dad was in the Navy. She
shared some of the kitchen duties would sometimes make this sandwich. Take
one large egg and crack it into a bowl, then using a fork, mix the egg like
making scrambled eggs. Pour the beaten egg into a preheated skillet with a
little cooking oil or butter, season with salt and black pepper and cook
until well set. Without scrambling, turn the egg over and cook the other
side until the egg is completely cooked. Place the warm egg onto a slice of
white bread that has been spread with mayonnaise. Top with a second slice of
bread that has been buttered and enjoy. Sometimes I spread just a little
yellow prepared mustard over the egg and sometimes also cover with thinly
sliced sweet onion. The sandwich doesn't have a name, but it's sure a great
way to make a different egg sandwich.
Mr. Myron Drinkwater - Lake Forest, CA
For Doris in Oklahoma City Re: syrup &
butter mixed together then put on bread was always & still is a favorite of
mine. Have you ever tried honey & butter? It's good also. Now here's a
strange sandwich! My brother eats a baloney, cheese & peanut butter on 2
slices of bread--my husband ate one with him & commented "Not
Hi Nancy and furry friends,
I just had to add my sandwich fixings as a child. We loved the onion or
radishes on butter bread. But my Mom always grew rhubarb and made rhubarb
sauce. Either this or applesauce was eaten on a slice of white bread. Oh how
good that tasted! It seems that we have all shared so many memories . We may
have been poor but we never knew it! Thank you for letting us all share the
fun times together.
Betty in Washington, MO
Nancy, first I want to thank you for all
the work you put into this newsletter, and to all the readers for all the
recipes, all the info about other things too. I loved reading about all the
difference sandwiches from in the past. I also ate mayonnaise, catsup
sandwiches while growing up and banana, peanut butter sandwiches with
mayonnaise and still eat those now one in a while.
Helen in Mississippi
Hi Nancy and all of you Nancylanders,
All right, I tried to resist, but finally gave in and am adding my 2 cents
worth to the sandwich memories. I don't remember who mentioned these, but I
also have had peanut butter and light karo syrup mixed together and spread
on toast. My Grandmother was the one that got me started on those. Also, we
didn't toast our bread in a toaster, but underneath the broiler. Cinnamon
toast was also a favorite. Just butter a slice of bread, sprinkle cinnamon
and sugar on top, and broil until bubbly. DELICIOUS! During garden season,
we ate sliced radishes on buttered bread, but another favorite was kohlrabi
sliced and eaten on buttered bread. Just thinking of all of those carbs and
calories makes me hungry!! ha
Sandi Hutson in Jasper, Texas... The
English call French fries sandwiches: 'chip butties' Star: can't wait to try
your recipe for the Crispy Ice Cream! !! Thank you Nancy for this wonderful
letter. I can't wait to read it every day :)
Angel from Sherbrooke
Just had to add another "childhood"
sandwich favorite to all the replies. I actually had two. One was tearing
white bread into pieces and covering it with Karo syrup. I guess that's a
stretch for a sandwich! The other sandwich is a bacon, lettuce, tomato and
peanut butter sandwich. Toast the bread. Spread peanut butter on both pieces
of bread. Add the bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes. Yummy!!! I was amazed when I
realized the whole world didn't eat this sandwich.
Nancy in TN
To respond to Lesleigh in Pa., your dad
was right, they taste a lot better than they smell. They really are quite
good. The kind we used, in the jar, is a lot different than the kind in a
brick. I've never had the nerve to try that kind, lol. I always remember the
story my uncle told about them stopping at a cheese shop one day, ( many,
many years ago ) and he bought a brick of limburger cheese. They started
home and my aunt made him stop the car and put it in the trunk, she couldn't
stand the smell.
Eileen from WNY
Nancy, I am replying to the different
type sandwiches, that we ate as children. My grandpap worked the
3-11 shift at the brick yard, and every after noon, I would have apple
butter bread and milk while he ate
the same with his coffee. Have many memories of my Pap, because of this.
Sandy Z. in Pa.
All of these sandwich combinations are
making me hungry. Betty in MD mentioned mixing catsup and
mayonnaise together for a French fry dip. I like to do this and use it as a
dressing on some salads. Thanks
to Carolyn for the suggestions about my onion sandwich. I will toast my
bread next time and add the
poultry seasoning to the buttered bread and then my onion slices. Sounds
like a combination I would
like. I do like toasted bread in a lot of my sandwiches. I also love tomato
sandwiches -just plain or with a
little Miracle Whip.
Marian in ND
Hi, Nancy. I have to join the discussion
about sandwiches in early days. Since I was an only child, my Mother worked
outside a lot, and I was left to experiment with whatever combination of
food I could find in the kitchen cupboard. My favorite was white bread
spread with butter, then topped with mustard, salt and pepper! Another one I
took to school, was bread and butter topped with sandwich spread. Another
favorite my husband introduced me to during WW II was of peanut butter and
Karo Syrup mixed together spread on any kind of bread. Of course you could
dip the slice of bread in the bowl too. Those were the
good old days when we hadn't heard of McDonald's or other drive in eateries.
Even if we had, there would
have been no money to buy anything.
Dottie from U of I Land.
I too loved potato salad sandwiches,
especially right after the potato salad was made, while it was still
warm. I also loved the mayo & tomato sandwiches!!
Kay in Indy
And down memory lane, we always ate
mustard sandwiches with thin slices of white onion for a late- night snack.
My dad used to make us breakfast by putting sugar on hot, buttered toast and
then we'd dip spoonfuls of hot coffee on it as we ate it (using plate and
fork). We loved it!
Careen from Cortez
I resisted as long as I can about my
'favorite' sandwich. I agree with Suz in Louisiana about the potato salad
sandwiches, but I also (and still do) liked potato salad on saltine
crackers. Another good one for me was leftover dressing and cranberry sauce
on white bread smeared with mayonnaise. No wonder I now have trouble with my
weight, have had a heart attack and have trouble with my cholesterol! If we
had only known back then. Either of these would still taste good but I know
I can't eat either.
Oma in LA
I remember as a child growing up as snacks we had bread and butter with
sugar sprinkled on it, and my kids
love it as well. Also another snack I remember is a Ritz cracker or a
regular cracker with Colby cheese and
cucumber slices and radish slices on it, if we didn't have Colby cheese we
used sliced cheese but most of
the time it was Colby cheese, and its real good my kids love it a lot and
there teenagers, also another
snack I didn't care much for it but my brother did and my husband likes it
and my kids and my dad it was
peanut butter with syrup and jelly mixed in a bowl and ate with crackers and
sometime they added
But I think the most remembered snack as a child growing up was cookies in
my moms green cookie jar, she
always made home made cookies of all kinds my favorite was chocolate chip
with m and m s in it and she
always had a snack for us and still does.
Jo Anna from Oklahoma
Reading all these different sandwich
fillings people enjoyed growing up has brought back memories to me as well.
I remember loving scrambled egg sandwiches on toast, until I asked if I
could have one for school lunch, not realizing how soggy the bread would be
by then. I didn't eat them again until they became a popular fast food
breakfast item in recent years. I love them again! My father was a lover of
raw hamburger, as was his mother. They would both love to eat a chunk of
freshly ground hamburger from the butcher (before it came pre-packaged), but
dad particularly liked to put his between two slices of bread with a slice
of raw onion, salt and pepper. He'd only do this when it was first bought,
before it was put away. I also remember his eating baked beans and cottage
cheese on crackers. My mother remembers eating baked bean sandwiches.
Wendy, South Jersey
Someone mentioned mixing Karo syrup with
butter and dipping their bread in it and I to used to do that. I also did it
with molasses and butter. All this talk is making me crave this mix. Too bad
I've never learnt an easy recipe for biscuits or I'd make some and have this
tonight. My granny makes the best biscuits around but since she doesn't use
a recipe no one can copy these. Hope everyone is doing well.
Nikki, F'burg VA
regarding weird sandwiches, when I was
growing up, a favorite sandwich was taking a biscuit left over from
breakfast, spreading with mayonnaise or mustard then putting a slice of
onion and fresh tomato right from the garden on it. mm was good at the time.
My husband often recalls his favorite sandwich when he was growing up.,
Spread Carnation milk on one
slice of bread and Karo Syrup on the other and slap them together. Doesn't
sound delicious at all to me
but he said it was great.
Sharon in TN
I've had a lot of fun reading all the
sandwich stories. My favorites when I came home from school were onion and
mustard on an old cold biscuit. I remember also making a biscuit sandwich
with English peas.
I guess I thought I was the only person
who ever ate these kinds of sandwiches. I'm not even sure we
had ketchup or I probably would have used that also.
Ann in AR
Hello to all at Nancys Kitchen. I am way
behind on reading my newsletters. Had and fall and fractured my pelvis. No
surgery necessary thank goodness. However, looks like Myron started
something with the "oldie" sandwiches. My alltime favorite was peanut butter
and mustard on Wonder bread of course. Sounds yucky now but sure was good
when I was young. Been a long time since I even thought of it. Maybe I
should try it now I might still like it. Oh yes, here in Atlanta Wonder
bread can be purchased at Wal-Mart super stores and it is still as good as
ever. Sue in GA
My favorite 'sandwich' was bread spread
with lots of miracle whip and lots of potato chips crunched in.
R from Iowa
Also, re: sandwiches; I remember my mom
eating radish sandwiches, also beet sandwiches and onion ones. Thanks for
all you do, love the newsletter, but more importantly, my family loves it!
Betty in Mid-Michigan
Martie in Oregon, Sept.18, I had a
wonderful GRANDMOTHER that made the most to die for homemade
bread. My GRANNY also must have been psychic, because she had the uncanny
ability to know when I was dieting. I would drive up to her house and you
could just smell the sweet yeast bread. When you walked into her house there
would be 2 loaves of the best bread you could ever eat, with a butter dish
right beside them, the bread still hot from the oven (there goes the diet
again). I have got as close as I can to her bread using my bread machine,
and making my own recipe up, but would anyone have a
simple recipe to make by hand that sounds like that?
Thanks Jenny in KY.
Regarding the different kind of sandwiches that we ate when we were
children. I also ate mayo sandwiches, and butter and sugar sandwiches. My
dad would always mix peanut butter and honey together on his plate and then
eat it with bread. He always called it his "lemon meringue pie." He would
also punch a hole in a biscuit and fill it with honey and eat it. Like
everyone else has said; "thank you Myron for the memories." I find it
fascinating that there are some things that we don't remember as well until
someone mentions it, or something that is like what you did as a child, and
then the memories come flooding back. Since I lost my mother last year, it
is nice to remember such things. Thank you again Myron.
Debbie M in South Texas
This is in response to Maryann in WY who
wrote of her aunt who got her and her cousins/sisters/brothers hooked on
peanut butter, mayonnaise and pickle sandwiches. I am writing because over
50 years ago at Girl Scout Camp in Ossippee NH we would raid the kitchen and
make these same sandwiches. The three items were the only ones kept in the
unit kitchen! And, they were soooooo good. The Camp's name was Weetamoe, run
by the Cambridge, Mass. Girl Scouts. It was a large part of my life for
about 6 summers. And, I run into others campers in the darnest places, one
in Spain singing with a choral, another on campus Soph. year in College,
another in the MIT band who played at college one night when I was a Junior
and Ruthie was a Soph. I thank those wonderful people for so much I learned
For Martie in Oregon, mentioned home
made bread in the 9/19/06 newsletter. My high school boyfriends
mother owned a dairy store, it was our job to pick up bread from the Holsum
bread store, we would open
a still warm loaf and eat it all the way back to the store. Was that ever
good. Nancy love your sight, and
all the memories it conjures up. give Siggy and Ditto a scratch behind the
ears for me.
Dairiel of Minnesota
Everyone is going back to the past about
the sandwiches (I've eaten sardine sandwiches & the butter &
Rosie Mc. in PA
I finally couldn't stand it any longer &
had to jump in on the weird sandwiches. I loved "potted meat" sandwiches.
You bought it in tiny little cans (and it is still available). Sometimes
when I was lucky enough to have a nickel I would buy a can of that instead
of candy or "pop" , open the can & smear it on white bread. I still get
hungry for it once in a while - but now I mix it with minced egg & onion, &
put a slice of tomato (when I have fresh) on it.
Someone mentioned using fatback to draw a splinter. That really does work. I
did that a few years ago, when one of my great-grandkids had one deep in
their foot. It was starting to "fester" & DGD was going to try to get it out
with a needle. I told her to hold off a bit, & since she didn't have
"fatback" I took the fat from a couple of slices of bacon & bandaged it onto
the wound. The next morning, the splinter & the pus were out of the wound.
Grandma made some sort of weird tonic we had to take every spring. I have no
idea what was in it (& really don't want to know - lol) but it involved
gathering things in the woods, boiling, straining, mixing - at least she
didn't chant; It tasted really bad, too. There were also various poultices
that she or Granpa made for various illnesses or injuries.
Thanks to all, for the walk down memory lane.
My favorite sandwiches must be really
strange because I haven't seen them mentioned yet. Number 1 would have to be
Miracle Whip on white bread with as many potato chips stuffed between the
two slices of bread as possible. I still eat this when no one else is home
to see me. I love peanut butter on one slice of bread, Miracle Whip on the
other with tuna salad in the middle with bread and butter pickles and of
course chips on the side. One sandwich I can't seem to talk anyone into
trying is softened cream cheese on white bread with a generous amount of
sliced stuffed olives. And last but not least is buttered white bread toast
with grape jelly and a big slice of onion. I find it amazing that we all eat
these kinds of food but feed our children and grandchildren much healthier
food and childhood weight is out ofcontrol.
Mary Newton Falls OH in Sept 20
It brought back memories when you reported on not knowing your family was
poor when growing up. It was the same with me but I was lucky as my three
sisters and I grew up on a farm. My parents had cows so we had butter, milk,
cream and all the veggies we could eat from the big garden my mother raised
and also canned for winter use. And she also made a big crock of sauerkraut
(even though we were Norwegians) which was kept in the basement and never
canned. That tasted so much better than the cans or the bagged I buy in the
grocery store We had plenty of meat as there was beef, chicken and pork from
livestock raised on the farm. .Every Sunday in the winter we had homemade
ice cream. Sounds like we had money but it was a cheap dessert. We had all
of the ingredients eggs, milk, cream, other than the sugar for it. My
sisters and I would go out to the water tank and chop ice where the water
had frozen as it ran over the top of the tank. My mother would put it
together and we girls would take turns cranking the
freezer. We could not wait until it was done and we could lick the paddle.
And of course, the butter for our meals and sandwiches was churned and this
was another chore for my sisters and me. Those were the good old days
although we did not appreciate them as much as we should have.
Marian in ND
Favorite childhood sandwiches ??
My favorite was banana, mayo, and peanut butter on white bread. My mom put
mayo on for a little extra pizzaz, and it made it a little moister. She also
used to make us a fried bologna sandwich with lettuce and mayo. And I'll
never forget sitting down and having a thick slice of sweet onion on Italian
bread with real butter and a little bit of vinegar, salt and pepper. This
was more or less a saturday night snack. ( My dad would put some lindberger
cheese on his )
Jeanlock in F"burg VA, I sure remember that nasty castor oil in orange
juice. I still don't like orange juice. I also remember cod liver oil.
My grandmother kept a bottle of cod liver oil on the fire escape and when
I would come home for lunch, from school, she would give me a tablespoon
and tell me to take a tablespoon of cod liver oil. I would fill the spoon
and drop it out the window. Of course, eventually, someone spotted the
oil outside and my goose was cooked.
My mother also used to beat an egg yolk and add a couple of tablespoons of
marsala wine for me. I liked that. Gay on L.I.
Seeing everyone's response to favorite sandwiches I just had to add mine.
It is white bread, homemade grape jelly or jam and a slice of ham. Of
course baked ham leftover from Sunday lunch was always the best. Another
one of my favorite's is fresh tomato slices on white bread spread with
Miracle Whip or butter. My dad's favorite growing up was homemade grape
jam or jelly with a slice of American or Velveeta cheese. Dad used to make
us pancakes on the weekends and we would put a slice of Velveeta on top
with grape jam or jelly or syrup and another favorite still today of my
kids is peanut butter with syrup on top of their pancakes.
O.K. I have to get in on the act too.
Our favorite after school snack was not a
sandwich but some Hershey's cocoa and sugar mixed together in a cup and
eaten with a spoon. I tried some of that years later to see if my children
would like it and I don't see how my siblings and I ever ate it. I still
like mashed bananas and peanut butter sandwiches. A "foldover" to us was
any sandwich on one slice of bread instead of two. Bring the bottom up to
meet the top and, voila, a foldover. Lesleigh and Shannon, my mother made
the best macaroni and tomatoes. I still make it but I cheat. I just saute
some onions, then add a can of stewed tomatoes to a recipe of Kraft shells
and Velveeta. Love it.
jackiet from louisiana
Nancy, meows, and friends, (we've
always called our kitties "meows") I must get in on the remembrances of
childhood after school sandwiches. Mine was
and still is white bread slathered with peanut butter and mayonnaise,
absolutely the best! ! Dad taught me some thing I haven't seen here yet.
He said he and his father used to eat it. Take a piece if white bread and
cut in half; put a pat of butter on each end; then cover one end with
cottage cheese and dark Karo syrup. Quickly dunk it in a glass of milk and
slurp it down. You had four bites this way. I loved it and to this day
cover my cottage cheese with dark Karo. Dad also had a "stinky cheese"
which had to go to the back porch after a sandwich. This was a yellow
cheese, don't remember much more about it.
Nancy, thank you for letting us pour out our memories and for all your
hard work on this newsletter.
Made the Mt. Dew Dumplings Friday after work; they are the best. Even my
daughter who hates to cook
wants the recipe.
sandwich memories have been so much fun for me to read.
My husbands favorite was to take a biscuit and stick a hole in the top of
it with your finger and pour sugar
Joan in Ar
OK, this is for NANCY and all, I have
been waiting for something close to this to be sent in about favorite
childhood sandwiches but have not seen it
yet. MUSTARD AND NESTLE QUICK on bread. (this is one of my earliest
memories) don't know how it was good but I still love chocolate and
mustard just not
Jenny from Ky
Joan in Lancaster, PA wrote in about her day after Thanksgiving stuffing
sandwich. Well, that definitely brought back memories of after
Thanksgiving sandwiches. We would make stuffing, turkey, cranberry sauce
on white bread spread with mayonnaise and sprinkled with pepper
sandwiches! Now that was a sandwich! It was so good that my classmates
wanted to buy half of it!
Thank you so much for keeping this newsletter going!
Marcia in Mt. Airy
Just wanted to add my favorite
sandwich--Peanut Butter and Marshmallow cream YUM!
Mary in Ohio
In regard to Charlene from West
Tennessee. and her mother's favorite sandwich being mayonnaise, a slice of
American cheese and a slice of drained pineapple. That was my Daddy's
favorite sandwich also. I really like them too. It must be a Tennessee
thing because my hubby is from Alaska and I was telling him about Daddy
and his pineapple sandwich just a few weeks ago and he thought it sounded
really terrible. This coming from a man who will eat a sandwich with
cake,Fritos and onions on it. LOL
Melinda in Chattanooga
Never thought I would hear about
anyone eating mine and my daughters favorite
sandwich, which is Peanut Butter and a Dill Pickle. So was shocked
when Shannon in Ohio wrote that was on of her favorites too. They are
