Lets face it, a sandwich is just fuel. You make one, or pick one up from the store or petrol station, and don’t have a whole load of expectation beyond “shutting my stomach up for a while without giving me the shits.”
I wind up eating a lot of store bought sandwiches while going from place to place, since I ain’t very organised. Most are limp and lifeless, a pain to look at, never mind eat. Some, on the other hand, are rather good.
This is one that gets a good rating. The Sainsburys triple breakfast is three half sandwiches, cut into neat triangles. Sausage with brown sauce, egg and bacon, and a BLT.
The BLT, on malted bread, was glorious. Real lettuce, not iceberg, which was still crisp. Tomato that held it’s shape, didn’t drip and tasted of tomato. Perfectly cooked bacon, slightly on the crispy side but not dry enough to explode when you bite into the sandwich. Rarely do you get a perfect sandwich from a supermarket - in this case you do.
The egg and bacon is nice. A good balance between the two ingredients, just about the right amount of moisture and again, the bacon is perfectly cooked. Sadly, this sandwich is on probably the cheapest and most plastic white bread it is possible to find. A huge let down for what could be a pleasure to eat.
The sausage and brown sauce sandwich was again on malted and was good. The sausage was high quality and not fatty, the bread was great. There was not quite enough sauce for my taste, but then again I had been driving for a while.
Total cost for the sandwich pack was £1.60, making it an economical and tasty snack.
