Sandwich Month

Club sandwich cut into three with ham, cheese, lettuce, and tomato.

No matter how you slice it, everyone seems to have a favorite sandwich. In a month known for its “dog-days” and heat, a sandwich may provide just the meal you need. They’re low fuss, yet can be quick and nutritious, and most require no cooking.

A sandwich by definition includes one or more pieces of bread which can range from bagels to ciabatta or pumpernickel to Kaiser rolls, and have a filling of meat, cheese, fish, eggs, vegetables or a combination of these items.

The first sandwich you ate was probably peanut butter and jelly on bread. Maybe the crust was cut off; maybe grandma made the jam or jelly. Any combination provided both the sweet and salty tastes we crave.

As adults we expand our tastes and have favorites like a BLT, Monte Cristo, or grilled cheese. With so many variations possible, an old favorite can become a new favorite.
