Culinary Smackdown -Battle Sandwich - Entries and Winner


There were a lot of sandwiches to chew through because everyone wanted the Hundred Bucks. I would like to thank CSN Stores for giving me this gift certificate to give to a lucky winner and I hope each and every one of you check out their site. I will post the entries as they came in so there is no real order other than the randomness of the submission. To start off I will show you a classic BLT by little ol' me, and at the very very end or somewhere in between or linked to something I will tell you the winner - just to make sure you look at everyones sandwich!

First to roll in was tomatoes on the vine with this substantial beauty. Look at that lovely kraut on that big fat brat!

A newbie to my blog Platanos Mangoes and Me dug into their archives a little bit to showcase this powerhouse of goodness - Chicken Tapenade.

Girlichef went ahead and did everything but cure the prosciutto for this stunning entry-kale prosciutto and yogurt cheese.

Well looky here - Joan Nova from Foodalogue sent in this lovely No bake eggplant parm sandwich - looks impressive.

Heather at He cooks... She cooks made a nice combo with apples and bacon and brie, this is kicked up.

Greg at Sippity Sup threw his hat in the ring with this Roasted Pork Banh Mi - I expect this is the tip of the iceberg.

Girlichef is taking this seriously with another delicious entry. Olde Baggs Roast Pork

When I said Girlichef was taking this seriously I meant SERIOUSLY - here is another entry and this time its got a little mexican flair. Torta con Chile Colorado

Looks like Cooking Gallery is definitely playing with a full deck with this entry - Giant Prawn Tempura Wraps with Spicy Yoghurt Dressing.

Heffs Bar and Grill decided to enter into the fray with Buffalo Hot Wing Turkey Burgers - in honor of The Buffalo.

Kates Kitchen reached into the archives to pull out this gem of an entry - an over stuffed Grilled Pastrami sandwich.

Described as a "gastrointestinal time bomb" Karls Korner proudly submits a Dagwood.

FloridaCracker at Pure Florda Food went ahead and used a nice lean bison to create a bison steak sandwich with chimichurri.

LaDiva Cucina decided to go all "down under" with her Portuguese Chicken sandwich - otherwise known as a bondi burger.

Marjie at Modern day Ozzie and Harriet, who has to cook an entire chicken coop to feed her mob, must have snuck away to post this Chicken Sandwich - it even has olive bread.

Krakilette submitted a "star" of a sandwich with liver pate, dark rye, tomato and leek.

Lee Ann at Mangos Chili and Z went south of the border with her entry and came up with a black bean and chorizo torta.

Eggy at Intuitive Eggplant really had her thinking cap on and off and the on again with this fusion entry - Mexican street corn, shrimp salad sandwich.

Grumpy Granny stepped up to the plate with a fried green tomato sandwich.....

but thats not all Grumpy Granny also submitted what I want to call a Sloppy Jose.

After much deliberation and considering this has a little more on the line with the prize and all I opted to go with random.org to do the picking for me that way it is as fair as fair can be. Like my good old buddy Buffalo Dick used to say "your food may look good but my food tastes good" and as much as he was insulting me I let it go (plus I knew better) so since I didnt get a chance to taste any of these lovely creations this seemed like the best way to pick a winner and that winner is............



Congratulations! Krakilette you are the Star in more ways than one -Take your badge - lets figure out how I can get the certificate to you - and dont forget that as the winner you are also the host for the next SmackDown, you pick the theme and you get all the prestige that goes along with this honor.

I am such a sandwich lover! Each and every one looks fabulous! I really love that shot of the No Bake Eggplant Parm! I think I'm just about ready for a midnight snack...Darn, it's only nine-thirty!

intuitive eggplant said...

What an outstanding array of entries, and what a great turnout! Congrats to Krakilette, and a big thanks to Dog for doing such a fine job hosting this month's Smackdown! Looking forward to checking out everyone's entries - and discovering some great new blogs, I'm sure. But, unlike the Ungourmet, it's past my bedtime here. Will check in with y'all later.

All of these sandwiches look killer. I can see why you would want to use random .org. Congrats to Krakilette.

You did a great job promoting and handling this foodie event.

Lea Ann said...

Congrats to the winner. Sunday was a double sandwich day for me. My all time favorite sandwich hands down, is a BLT. Had one for breakfast then the torta for dinner. Great lineup.

Doc said...

Damn-you made me hungry. Nice sandwiches and very fair way to pick a winner. Well done!

Jenn said...

As a frequent sandwich eater, it would be hard for me to pick just one. Seriously it would.

Anette said...

Visit my blog to get the next theme for Culinary Smackdown September 2010!

pigpigscorner said...

Oh my, I really cannot choose.

Claudia said...

I tell you- I couldn't choose either - but I could certainly eat them all. Grand round-up!

MrsLavendula said...

oh my! all those delicious looking sandwiches are making me hungry!!!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Rebecka said...

How is it that I miss all of the fun contests?? I would have loved to compete in this sandwich challenge!

All of the entries were fantastic...my mouth is still watering from looking at all the lovely photos. Please let me know when you plan to do another Smackdown cause I'm in!

Congratulations, Krakilette...WOOF!

Jessica said...

Seems like the least you could have been able to do is get to taste these beauties. Doesn't fedex ship sandwiches? lol

Seriously, each of these tasty sandwiches got my taste buds going. Yum!

Barbara said...

Super round-up of the smackdown entries! I loved every one. Really difficult to pick a winner I bet.
Congrats to Krakilette!

Sippity Sup said...

Great line up and congrats to the winner! GREG

The Blonde Duck said...

You can't beat a good sandwich.

biz319 said...

I hate random integer - but love all these great sammies!

The Food Hacker said...

I understand the random choice. If I were to pick a winner on appearance alone I would have to go with Torta con Chile Colorado. If that was set before my eyes I wouldn't be able to stop myself from having a bite.

Magic of Spice said...

Very nice line up, they look great...and congratulations to the winner :)
