Top 10 Sandwiches for a Stakeout

top-10-sandwiches-for-a-stakeoutPrivate investigators occasionally have to sit on stakeouts if they are on surveillance. Many stakeouts are brief affairs, but sometimes they can stretch for hours. If you know you’re going to be there awhile, it’s important to prepare some food to keep a stomach quiet and not alert the subject of your possible presence.

Knowing this, PInow wanted to put together a list that could serve as a go-to when hunger pangs strike. This list took account various factors such as portability, messiness, and taste.

Here are the top ten with descriptions. What do you think?>

  1. Ice cream - Obviously. It’s messy but delicious.
  2. Cheesesteak - With meat, cheese, and bread, you are getting the whole package. It’s like James Bond to all these other Bullwinkle sandwiches. You can top it with vegetables, spices, and peppers as you wish.
  3. Ham and cheese - A classic that is climate-adjustable. So if you in Miami or the other Miami, you can rely on this simple champion.
  4. Ham - Going cheeseless means you can utilize mustard or are lactose intolerant.
  5. Roast beef - Almost as versatile as ham, but not quite. Also better as part of a dinner with plates, so we had to knock it down the sandwich list.
  6. Turkey - Simply, bird protein is less fulfilling than mammal protein.
  7. Tuna salad - But fish protein is even less fulfilling than bird protein.
  8. Po boy - A Bayou classic that deserves more appreciation and surveillance sandwich eating go-toing.
  9. Pastrami - Ah, when done right, the pastrami...there are no bad words, but when rushed, uhh...there are no good words.
  10. Veggie - We call this the ‘investigation accelerator’ because who wants to have to sit on a stakeout and have a veggie sandwich?

But seriously, how would you rank your favorite sandwiches or surveillance foods? Is yogurt at the top of surveillance foods? Is ham and cheese your favorite sandwich?
