Stunning Ham Sandwich

Recommended Posts

This is my recipe:

Get loaf of bread.

Cut two slices.

Butter one side each slice.

Smear one slice with English Mustard (only English; if you use French or German, or anything else, you will die.)

Cut slices of ham (make sure pig is dead) and place on slice of bread.

Put other slice on top.

Eat.

Do I win a fiver?

It's the quality of the bread that matters - must be just the right texture and have a crispy crust. None of your sliced heated dough.

Which raises the question as to who supplies Bedders best Bread? Always worth paying a bit extra for decent bread I think.

In Italia you'd have it sans mustard, but with a bit of mozarella garnished with rucola in a crispy roll. Much nicer in a warmer climate.

With a risk of upsetting anyone by heading out of town... I would recommend (again) The Shop at Bomarsund (opposite Bomarsund club, kinda)... frestly baked Ciabatta, Foccacias et el, baked fresh by a real Sardinian... absolutley lovely scran for sandwiches, buffets and deli goods too. Worth the 3 minute drive...

All very well if you have a snappy little red convertible at your disposal. I, unfortunately, am relegated to going downstairs and chewing on one of my chickens.

I second that one Brian, but can't get Smith's crisps with the little blue bag of salt!

What? You choose to desecrate the delicately poised flavours of ham with an aggressive twang of pickle? Are you mad? English mustard is ham's best friend. Cheese I can handle.

Why do you suppose that? I use shepherds, of course.

what sort of english mustard do you use? i use colmans and that has a lot more "twang" than any pickle even the acidic cheap ones!

    • Cemetery-walking dog owners who allow their animals to foul graves and headstones are to be targeted by enforcement officers.
      Northumberland County Council is stepping up patrols to combat an increase in reported incidents of dog fouling and owners failing to keep dogs on leads in cemeteries.
      Enforcement Officers will be on patrol in cemeteries where dog owners have been sighted allowing their dogs to roam around cemetery grounds.
      Council cemeteries are subject to dog control orders which require dogs to be kept on a short lead, not more than 1.5 metres in length, at all times and must be under control. An extendable lead is not permitted.
      As in all other public places, it is an offence to allow a dog to foul and not clean up. Signs at all the entrances to the cemetery instruct dog owners to keep their dogs on leads.
      The council has received an increasing number of complaints of dogs fouling in cemeteries, especially in the Bedlington and Blyth area and say this is particularly distressing for those visiting the graves of loved ones.
