For most sandwiches: mayo and mustard.

For leftover turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving: butter.

Wow. I have a feeling you're going to be sorry you asked!

I have a lot of "rules" for sandwiches:

1) Mayo on the side with tomatoes or bacon (sometimes chicken or turkey, if there's no bacon or tomatoes.)

2) Mustard with ham, unless there is a need to apply rule #1.

3) Never, EVER mayo touching ketchup. (<<<pet peeve)

4) Mustard, ketchup, and pickle on the bottom bun of a burger.

5) Never Miracle Whip.


So, if I'm having an old fashioned burger with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mustard, ketchup, and mayo, from the top down, it looks like this:
Bun
Mayo
Salt & Pepper
Tomato
Lettuce
Onions
Burger
Pickle
Mustard
Ketchup
Bun

So, the order of ingredients in a sandwich is something that I'm OCD about and something that I take a lot of crap about, but I think it has a tremendous impact on the overall flavor.

ETA: Never mayo touching cheese, unless it's Swiss or provolone.
I'm sure I have a thousand rules, but I can't think of them all right now.

It all depends on the sandwich, and the sandwich maker, but I don't even have miracle whip in the house.

When DS21 makes sandwiches, he tends to make some sort of mayo-based, seasoned spread. It's usually very tasty, so I try to get him to make the sandwiches.

If it's me making my own sandwich, usually I'll use mustard, but sometimes add mayo. When I make an Italian sub kind of sandwich, I'll use Italian dressing or oil and vinegar, too.

For my Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwiches, I toast the bread so it gets some butter. Then I also spread cranberry sauce on the bread.

For post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches? Cranberry horseradish. Nummers.

One of my favorite condiments I ever made for a sandwich was actually a spread.

(It's a sad story, actually, so I haven't made it again, but I will. Waywardson's co-manager's W had cervical cancer (at age 27). We knew how sick she was, so I had time to plan what I would send to the family.)

I made a Schlotzky's-style bread and topped it with turkey, swiss, and a tangerine-rosemary cream cheese spread. That was awesome!

Miracle Whip? (Shudders violently.) Just. Say. No.

Mayo (preferably homemade) on soome sandwiches--which I seldom eat anymore because of the S/O's gluten intolerance.

Mustard and maybe mustard/mayo combo on ham sandwiches.

Mayo and horseradish mix on roast beef sandwiches.

Mayo, lemon juice, celery salt, hot sauce mix on tuna.

Not as OCD as some; more than others!

Wow... I'm the only one who likes Miracle Whip?

I can't stomach regular plain boring mayo... It's just... I don't know. It just doesn't cut it for me.

I use mustard on salami, corned beef and pastrami always on Rye bread.

I use mustard on hot dogs
ketchup and miracle whip on burgers
miracle whip on BLT's

FWSO agrees with you on the mayo good... Miracle Whip bad

Ketchup, mayo, or BBQ sauce depending on the sandwich and my mood. I will mix ketchup and mayo or BBQ sauce and mayo. There is an Italian place near me that makes this awesome thick kinda sweet balsamic that goes good on sandwiches. But never mustard. Not a fan.

Something I also do is mix curry powder with mayo.

I like a good horseradish spread on most of my sandwiches. Or, a good mayo. Never miracle whip

On a burger though, I like a mix of mayo, mustard and a tiny amount of ketchup.

Depends on the sandwich, but the main rule is:
5) Never Miracle Whip.
This is so good, TCD.
Something I also do is mix curry powder with mayo.
I sometimes mix mayo and ketchup together and put it on my hot dog with onions. Also, to dip my french fries in. I learned this in Utah. They call it fry sauce. They offer it at their fast food restaurants. We were like "Fry sauce?" but it is delicious.

For sandwiches I'm mostly a mustard girl. Preferably a spicy mustard rather than just plain French's yellow mustard.

For tuna salad/chicken salad I like to mix some horseradish in with the mayo (must be mayo - never Miracle Whip). But I do not ever just put mayo on any sandwich as a condiment.

Ketchup is very rarely used. It's even a take it or leave it thing for me with french fries.

What, no vegemite? Personally, usually mayo on just about any type of sandwich that calls for condiments. Butter works good too. Take it or leave it on the rest. It really depends on the sandwich.

I mostly fall in this camp, but I do enjoy oil and vinegar on a sub, and occasionally put a bit of mustard between meat layers where it won't soggy up the bread.

Ok for me - Miracle Whip and Mayo are the same thing!!! Like butter and margarine.

(Ducks and runs out of the room)

Normally I don't put anything - meat, cheese and bread is the perfect meal.

But if I am in the mood for condiments then:

For burgers - ketchup and pickles
Most sandwiches - spicy brown mustard
Turkey, chicken, tuna - mayo (of whatever variety).

Fries - only salt. rarely ketchup. I was surprised the first time I went to Belgium and the national snack is fries with mayo.

I'm with Gonna, with regards to not needing/wanting the usual condiments. The only addition I make to the meat & cheese might be bbq sauce, depending on the meat. Leftover turkey is usually eaten minus bread, with berries heaped on. Yum - now I'm anxious for Thanksgiving!

I'm in the Miracle Whip camp. So is hubby. Don't really care for mayo. I use it on most sandwiches. On burgers, it's ketchup, pickles, lettuce and tomatoes. Occasionally, I'll use mustard on sandwiches.
