I really like the stuff like that shown in the sammich pic. And they had scads of it in the Windemere market, so I assume it is readily available throughout Cumbria. It toasts up real nice, too. I wish my sandwich bread had that much grain in the body of the bread; it's closer to balloon bread than that.
It seems so weird to see people calling them beetroot. For many years, I only heard them called beets. I like them roasted or steamed, but not pickled!
Yes...Until I started conversing on a frequent basis with Brits, I just called them beets. Of course, it does make a bit of sense if you know that beet tops are a superb green and thus, distinguishing between root and top is functionally helpful. But then, with us it was just beets (meaning beetroots), or beet greens (usually steamed).
I eat them all, roasted or steamed, but still prefer the cooked beetroots which are then pickled.

I didn't know that! I'll have to check my pee post beetroot next time.
Also, JoeP - you make the most terrible Australian. Where's the coconut and beetroot love?
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
I grew up on bologna sandwiches and the occasional fluffernutter. Later I added in scrambled egg sandwiches.
Nowadays, I'll have either roast chicken, turkey, or ham. But I really enjoy a good grilled cheese. The community college I attended when I went back to school some years ago had a 3-cheese GC on Texas toast. That was outstanding! The diner down the street makes a nice grilled chicken breast sandwich that I often get when I don't know what else to have. Sometimes I'll also have their patty melt. I don't mind a good turkey club and have come to enjoy chicken salad, which we sometimes make at home.
I don't go crazy on the bread typically, either white, wheat, sourdough, or rye.
