Sandwich recipe, please
 
Hey guys, would you do me a big favor and tell me your favorite sandwich that can be made conveniently, cut into quarters and stuffed into your jersey pockets for longer rides?

It's gotta be something tasty, or else you won't want to eat it; and made from ingredients you can buy and keep ahead of time, so you don't have to worry about going to the grocery store before you can do your ride.

Obviously not a big, thick sandwich; a skinny sandwich, so that each quarter is just a couple of mouthfuls.

I'm thinking maybe canned deviled ham and Miracle Whip. What do you suggest?

Thanks a lot!

Black pudding sandwich - its literally made of blood, plenty of iron for
oxygen transport.

Its cooked during processing, but you should cook it again - OK hot or cold.

Please yourself what you put on it - I usually use chili or brown sauce.

Ham and cheese. Thin slices.
Or even the old school lunch, peanut butter and jelly.

I like dates and figs on a bike ride, a banana is of course an old
standby for this sort of thing. I like almond butter better than peanut
butter and usually use honey instead of jelly or jam as it's less messy.
I use a handlebar bag or large seatbag, usually, so regular bread is
fine. For putting in a pocket, I might use pita bread instead.

I would avoid things with mayo in them, they are going to get awfully
warm in a pocket. Food poisoning sucks.

I also really like Kind Bars and those are usually what I carry
nowadays.

Greg Lemond's book, as I recall, had some space devoted to discussing
this.

Figs are allegedly laxative - dried apricots are somewhat better to the
extent of causing explosive decompression.

Cream cheese between two "breakfast biscuits" travels well in a snack
bag. Instead of cutting them into quarters, make four.

When I had access to a store called "Paradise Foods" I made
high-calorie muffins and kept them in the freezer; I can no longer buy
powdered kelp etc. for making mixed edible powder.
http://wlweather.net/PAGEJOY/COOKBOO...K/COOKBOOK.TXT
-- search on "high". I don't appear to have updated the cookbook
after learning how to bake them as bars. (The secret is to use a
large pan, so that they are mostly crust.)

Nowadays I count on being able to buy food along the way, so I need
back-up snacks that can be taken on several trips before being eaten.
I usually pack a few of Aldi's "protein bars", "granola bars", etc. We
refer to all of them as "candy bars", since sugar is the predominant
ingredient, but they make excellent emergency snacks.

When I want to eat at Tippy Park, I may take bread, a can of potted
meat, and other things that keep well, and make a sandwich after I get
there.

Or I might make a sandwich of just bread and summer sausage or the
like, and carry raw vegetables to slice onto it.

Oatmeal cookies can be a good meal. Search on "oatmeal" in the same
file; make a *lot* of long rolls so that the cookies are very small,
and coat the outsides of the rolls with sesame seeds.

If you plan to stop to eat, a banana and a bag of nuts provide the
right combination of sugar and fat. Bite the end of the banana flat,
press one or more nuts onto it, repeat.

Dried fruit in a front pocket or handlebar bag is good for eating
while in the saddle. If you don't mind leaving a trail of plum pits,
fresh stanley prunes are just the right size to pop a whole one into
your mouth. Unfortunately, they are available only a couple of weeks
a year -- and about seven hundred miles from here.

Some dried fruits can be stuffed with nuts. Two almonds in a pitted
date, for example. Apricots also have a pocket.

The sort of rule of thumb seems to be that it takes about 1/2 hour to
digest food and transport the resultant glucose to the muscles and a
normal Usian diet is probably well loaded with carbos so I'd guess
that the usual bicyclist starts out pretty well loaded with glucose.

My guess is that for an hour or so one doesn't need to eat at all, but
I did carry stuff, maybe a snickers bar or some oreos and in
retrospect I wonder whether it was the food intake or the stopping and
sitting down, eating and drinking a pint of water that did the job :-)
