I just made one yesterday for my husband and myself...and it was lip-smacking scrumptious - very full of flavor! This is not an insipid sandwich!
Start out with a roll-type bread...I use Bolillos - whole wheat specifically - Kaiser rolls are great too. Slice in half and place on a baking sheet. Kick the broiler on so it will be ready when you are.
I spread some softened butter on the inside of one piece and sprinkle with garlic powder. I spread Hellman's Dijonnaise on the inside of the other piece (it's not always easy to find, but it's basically Dijon mustard and mayonnaise mixed together). If I am out of Dijonnaise, I tend to just use yellow mustard.

|A good amount of deli meat - thinly sliced|
Top with lettuce, tomato, ripe avocado slices, and thinly sliced purple onion...a sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Sometimes, I add some sliced black olives and/or pepperocini slices...depends on how kicked up I feel like making it. Slice in half and serve! Yummmmm.....
And, that, my friends, is one darn good samich!

BON APPETIT, Y'ALL!!!
