Celebrate National Sandwich Day With 10 Delicious Creations

Nov 3 2011 - 5:07am

Happy National Sandwich Day! Today marks an official foodie holiday that celebrates all the glory that comes in one of America's favorite foods. The reason we celebrate on Nov. 3 every year? John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, and the world's first recorded sandwich-maker, was born on this very day. Here are 10 delicious sandwich creations that will have you and your taste buds celebrating in no time at all.

Turkey-Parm Sandwich

Chicken parm may be your go-to submarine choice, but I urge you to mix things up with a taste of turkey-parmesan sub on focaccia [1] for yourself.

Tofu and Chinese Broccoli Sandwich

An Asian-inspired spread sets the stage for this inventive tofu and Chinese broccoli sandwich [2].

Grilled Sausage Sandwich

A grilled gourmet sausage sandwich on olive bread [3] brings the classic Italian flavors of sausage and peppers to an elevated sandwich.

Spanish Monte Cristo

You may have heard of the Monte Cristo sandwich, but you've never tasted one like a Spanish Monte Cristo [4]. It's far more savory than its notoriously sweet cousin.

Updated Tuna Melt

Bring new dimension to a tired tuna sandwich with this Mediterranean tuna melt [5].

Meatball Sandwiches

Feeding a large crew? Make a slew of these tasty meatball sandwiches [6], and you'll be in great shape for entertaining.

Focaccia Reuben

Take a modern twist on an iconic deli classic with this focaccia reuben [7]. No need to worry; the corned beef stays king!

Classic BLT

The combination of flavors that come together to create a perfect BLT [8] is just too good to mess with.

Caprese Sandwich

Caprese salad is one of those simple and delightful dishes that always goes over well. Put this Italian classic between two slices of fresh bread and you've got yourself a perfect caprese sandwich [9].

Mediterranean "PB&J"

Creamy, nutty, salty, and sweet flavors collide in this delicious Mediterranean "PB&J" [10]. Instead of your typical peanut butter and jelly, this sandwich uses figgy preserves and almond butter as the foundation for sandwich glory.
