Sandwiches, sandwiches, sandwiches, most people eat them....but how did they start? What is the first recorded sandwich in history? whatscookingamerica.net...

A sandwich is one of my favorite ways to eat. There are so many different breads and fillings..and in making a sandwich a person can be creative and put together endless combinations of ingredients.

One of my favorite sandwiches is pretty simple...but I love it! A tuna sandwich...but (of course) I have to have it made a certain way.

Albacore Tuna
Miracle whip
Whole wheat bread toasted
Romaine lettuce
Sliced onion
Sliced tomato
A little salt and pepper

What is your favorite sandwich?

I believe it was the Duke of Sandwich who was hunting one day..

and decided he was hungry so..

he ended up putting some meat between two slices of bread and created a sandwich..

but i might be wrong..lol...who knows..

I always dug the sandwich Adam Sandler made in the movie Spanglish:


Last week I had a sandwich that is now my current favorite and it was a SHRIMP BLT with avacdo on homemade bread with garden fresh veggies, mmmm.

1 cup mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
4 slices bacon
8 extra-large shrimp - peeled, deveined, and tails removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
2 leaves romaine lettuce
4 slices ripe red tomato
6 slices sourdough bread, toasted

Your sandwich sounds good but Miracle Whip? Really? Try it with some mayo, please!

Here is mine. It takes a little work but worth it. I promise!

Take a double burner pan or griddle. Get it nice and medium hot with some butter (yes, the real stuff)

saute some onions and bell peppers and whatever else gets you excited
also, throw on some deli sliced turkey, chicken, and or beef
when the veggies get translucent put them on the meat and add provolone cheese on top
butter buns and give them about 1 minute on the griddle

put it together (with some mustard and / or mayo) and wonder why you ever buy a sandwich!

Welcome to yummy-town!

I used to work at a little deli counter in my youth, and we made custom sandwiches for the lunch rush.

My favorite to this day was one of the "house" specials:

Multi-grain bread, a dollop of mayo.
Provolone cheese.
Purple onion.
Avocado slices.
Tomato.
Romaine lettuce or sprouts.


Totally veggie, I know...but oh! OH! So delicious!

My favorite sandwhich would be tune, same as OP
fixed a certain way.
Second place the old fashion BLT - Bacon, lettuce and
tomato (prefer the vegs to be right out of the garden).
I never eat bacon any other way and I seldom make
a sandwhich. Do you know where the BLT originated?

Reuben sandwich is my favorite!

I also like anything with best foods mayo, avocado, and tomatoes..

Probably BLT come in a very close second.

This one is for people with few ingredients on hand. And it might make some of the sandwich masters upset but as a kids when pickings were lean I would do this little trick.

2 slices of bread
1 slice american (yup, that nasty stuff) cheese
and... drumroll please - Bacos

Nuke it for about 20 secs or so and enjoy. Surprisingly quick and cheap to boot!

I know how that goes!
I was raised on fake mayo (MW), fake butter (margarine), and fake meat (sausage - haha) and fake cheese (american)! As an adult, I have learned to appreciate the "real" stuff, yet maybe to my demise...

Happy New Year to you too Caladonea, thanks!

It seems there is a bit of interesting history to the ole sandwich.

The first time it was named sandwich was back in 1726 when the inventor of the sandwich, John Montague, the fourth earl of Sandwich, who was a heavy gambler and was spending endless hours playing cards, kept asking for bread, cheese and meat. Because he kept the cards in one hand, he had to use the other one to eat, so he though about placing the cheese and the meat between the slices of bread. The other players saw the earl’s invention and started asking about the same type of food, calling it “Sandwich’s”.

The "Earl" of sandwich,
sounds like a good name for a new sub shop!

In 1827, sandwiches were introduced in cooking books and by 1900, they were already famous in the United States. The most beloved sandwich here is peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which was created by the soldiers fighting in the Second World War.

And don't forget the Elvis twist of adding sliced bananas.
