Help Me Improve the “Greatest Sandwich Ever”

Q: My girlfriend says that she has created “the greatest sandwich ever.” It’s a bagel with cream cheese topped with hard salami and Nacho Cheese Doritos. The textures here are remarkable, but I’d love ideas for a new variation on the taste, which definitely needs improvement. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Editor: Chad, wow! That does sound like quite a sandwich. It seems like you need a combination of something creamy, something salty and savory, and something crunchy. What about using really high quality sliced meat (maybe a smoked beef or ham?) and then mashing some herbs into the cream cheese. Top it off with some homemade potato chips for the crunch.

Readers, any other advice for Chad? Have you ever made a sandwich like this?
