When Molly was in town, we met up on a Saturday afternoon with a bunch of Newcastle geeks. Much fun was had, a lot of it at my expense, because I chose to attempt the biggest thing on the menu.
The Scooby Snack is a monumental sandwich. It’s quadruple decker (4 doorstop slices of soft white bread) and has pretty much every ingredient ever between its slices: ham, chicken, pepperoni, sausage, bacon, smoked ham, Gruyere cheese, cheddar cheese, Mozzarella, red onion, barbeque sauce, mayonnaise and dill pickles.
This sounds like a hell of a strange mix of fillings, but in fact it works rather well. Truly, the only problem with this sandwich is its sheer SIZE. I couldn’t take a bite out of the whole thing and had to break it down into mini-sandwiches. For those of you who know me this might surprise you — I do have a big mouth after all!
The various geeks on the table thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. They thought this sandwich was unfinishable. I proved them wrong. I ate the entire thing. It was FANTASTIC. Even if I did need some peppermint tea afterwards to help my poor stomach cope 😉
I would agree with the Belle and Herbs health warning though: only attempt this sandwich if VERY hungry!
