I think "on a roll" is more standard. Compare "ham on rye", "beef on weck".

sh** on a shingle.
"over 3 years ago weck'>on weck bilby said
Seed rolls from Germany."
"sh** on a shingle" is an old term used by the US military personnel, a dysphemism for creamed chipped beef on toast.
But the beef isn't on the weck, it's in the weck. The b, the l and the t are within the roll, not on top of it.
yarb: I am not completely sure (this is why I changed it) but I think it is not that uncommon to call it "on a roll" (this doesn't make it correct, of course!).
I'm aware this could also be the equivalent of a grocer's apostrophe (the "deli's on"?)
You may be right, amigo - but still it riles me.
Right now I'm desperately craving a BLT. With avocado! Oh my god.
