National Sandwich Day


This day honors one of America’s most popular lunch items. White or wheat, mustard or mayonnaise?  However you slice it, almost everyone has a favorite sandwich.

Some of the most common sandwiches include:
Peanut butter & jelly ~ grilled cheese ~ bologna ~ tuna fish ~ hamburger ~ sloppy Joe ~ club ~ sub & the BLT

The sandwich is believed to be the namesake of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich in the 1700’s.  As the story goes, he enjoyed spending time at the gambling table playing cards.  Not wanting to take time away from the game, Lord Sandwich would order slices of meat between two slices of bread.  Montagu’s gambling friends soon began to order “the same as Sandwich”, from this, the sandwich was born.
Enjoy your favorite sandwich today.  Most of my favorites are far from fancy.  I love a fried egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast.  In the summertime, radish and butter sandwiches.  And every once in a while, a fried bologna sandwich with cheese and mustard, hits just the right spot.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest-ever sandwich was a 5,440 pound corned-beef sandwich made in 2005 by staffers at Wild Woody’s Chill and Grill in Roseville, Michigan.
