Cannot stand cucumber. Tastes like bad water, plus just makes everything soggy. Ham and mustard any day.

Haven't had a good cheese and onion sandwich for a good while now.

Only got red onion at the moment which isn't quite the same for me.

Raw onion, cucumber and especially sweetcorn makes me want to throw up. For me you cannot ruin a sandwich anymore if you put any of those three in.

Not a massive fan off sweetcorn, can just about endure it in a tuna and sweetcorn sandwich.

Other two though are fine by me.

Cucumber, a horrible revolting veg imo.

Gives me hefty indigestion.

Cheese and pickle, cheese and jalapenos and cheese and onion all get the thumbs up from me.

Plain cheese sarnies are just grand as they are!

Can't have the bread getting all soggy by adding stuff like cucumbers, tomatoes etc!

If I'm going to add something to a cheese butty it'll be one of the following:

- branston smooth pickle (i.e. no bits)
- mayonnaise
- seedless raspberry jam*
- crisps (but only the following flavours: Ready Salted, Cheese & Onion, Worcester Sauce, Sour Cream & Onion, Pickled Onion, Tomato Ketchup)

* = if you've yet to experience the magnificence of cheese & jam sarnies then I heartily recommend trying one! Yummmm ....

Cheese and pickle, cucumber is not a food stuff in my humble opinion.

If you are going to have a Subway - then it's the Meatball Marina all the way. Have it on Honey Roast Bread, with cheese, sweetcorn and red onion.

Yep - good call. Cheese and onion is a good combination. Red onion is a little more delicate in flavour. There's room for both. Depends on your mood and the ingredients that you have to hand.

For me its Cheese cucumber and smooth Branston though I really would prefer a meat of some description in there.

As for cheese and Jam is actually not as bad as it sounds though caution is advised when choosing a preserve to accompany. I've heard that an apricot goes quite nicely but I cant stand it.

Cheese with bacon and finely grated chocolate is quite nice too but thats got to be good bacon not crappy streaky (personally like a grating of Green and Blacks fine dark chocolate)

Green and blacks chocolate! Sounds like an upmarket gastro idea :lol:

But if it works it works
