Which would you prefer?

Given the following ingredients:

-one large slice sourdough bread
-one slice ham
-one slice cheese
-mayo and/or mustard
-lettuce

Would you prefer:

-a half sandwich (cut the bread in half so there can be a top and bottom to the sandwich; double up the ham and cheese slices to make a thicker filling)

or

-an open face sandwich

???

Why?

I prefer the open face sandwich (despite it being a bit messier to eat) because I get more bites.

I can’t even recall when I last had an open-faced sandwich. I’d prefer the half sandwich since there would be extra protein between the bread. I would find it easier to handle, too.

I like open-faced sandwiches—I think it has something to do with the bread to filling ratio.

I like the neatness of the half sandwich, although I'd eat either if not given a choice. There's something "undone" about biting into an open face sandwich - the roof of my mouth must need the bread.

I would do half a sandwich and take smaller bites because every bite has twice as much as an open face sandwich. I do love an open faced toasted cheese sandwich though—yum!

Seems like I tend to eat sandwiches in places where eating can be a challenge, like a picnic. A half sandwich would be easier to handle.

Half a sandwich. I’m a messy eater even under the best of circumstances, so e would end up wearing most of the open face sandwich

The half sandwich. Easier to eat and feels more like a sandwich to me for some reason.

If it's hot, open face and no mayo (in the toaster oven).

If it's cold, cut the bread in half and make a half sandwich.

I am finicky about neat eating, and hate eating gloppy food that gets messy. I'm the type that holds my sandwich in a napkin while eating, to keep my hands clean. So, no open faced sandwiches for me, no matter what type of ingredients (unless I can use a fork and knife to eat it).

No matter how you put it together this might be too much bread for the filling for me, depending on how the ham and cheese is sliced. That being said, I don't mind an open face sandwich if I'm eating at home where it's okay if I make a mess.

Since it's the same amount either way, I think half sandwich is easier and less messy to eat.

Half. I only like hot open faced sandwich. Like melt the cheese under the broiler.

I don’t eat bread anymore therefore no sandwiches for me except on a rare occasion of being out of town and having limited options.

If I were to choose though, the open faced sandwich can be eaten with a fork and knife which is how I would eat it. However, I would probably like a regular sandwich.

I would go with the half sandwich. I might even use the lettuce as a lettuce wrap if it is whole leaf and leave the bread. I can be a sourdough snob at times. It has to be a decent slice of sourdough.

I agree with others that a hot sandwich is better open faced. I often eat open faced with a knife and fork.

I would cut the bread in half and make a regular sandwich that way, because it's easier to eat.

Here's a weird one for you: My dad will make a sandwich as normal, and then eat it in layers like a psychopath, rather than taking bites of the whole sandwich. So he'll eat the top piece of bread by itself, then the cheese by itself, then the meat by itself, etc.

This is an easy question. Because an open faced sandwich isn’t really a sandwich- it’s more like a pizza. A sandwich has two pieces of bread- so you have to cut it!
