You have to wonder whether this could be accomplished by the kind of over-reduced pottage being spoken of.

Even the most minimal preparation of sops (ie, pour thin soup over 
toasted bread) makes it very soft very quickly, some something mostly 
solid on toast doesn't sound very sop-like at all. 

Besides that, a good dish of sops is delicious.  Slightly conjectural 
chicken and fried-onion sops is especially good.

Now, as to sandwiches.  There's a good recipe for a grilled-cheese 
sandwich in Maestro Martino, if one really wishes to serve sandwiches.
