Encyclopedia of Sandwiches

Encyclopedia of Sandwiches If there is even the smallest, tiniest, single micron thin, silver lining to this past year of being completely shut in, (for me at least) it is a seemingly renewed (or awakened) public interest in sandwiches. This is evidenced best by the viral Encyclopedia of Sandwiches poster. …

On Open Faced

An open faced sandwich is a sandwich that you could easily throw another piece of bread on, but it is so aesthetically pleasing that you end up leaving it off. Whales could breathe air all the time, but then what’s the point of being in the water?

long sandwiches

The Longwiches

Italian sandwiches, Submarines, Heros, Hoagies, Grinders, Wedges, Zeppelins, Jambon Beurre, Dagoberts, and Banh Mi

Also Gatsbys and Po’Boys
They are among the longwiches.  They are those made from bread longer than it is wide, split lengthwise and stuffed with things like meats and sauces and vegetables. They are typically loafwiches, though some may argue they can also be bunwiches, provided the bun has the correct dimensions

3 hot dogs

The Hot Dog Dilemma

I love hot dogs. And not just the Jumbos, or concession franks. The best ones are the small grocery store ones. The elation and validation I felt when I bought my first ever New York City hot dog from a cart and saw that it was just a little wet basic weiner was incredible. It was like every boiled hot dog I ever had as a kid. That’s the proper way by the way. It’s how they’ve always been done, even before that pesky bun showed up and started this dumb argument. Boiled.

Bacon Mania

Since its invention, the club has been one of the ultimate restaurant sandwiches. If a restaurant has a sandwiches section on their menu, i’m pretty sure they’re legally obligated to have some version of a clubhouse. A restaurant’s clubhouse is a reflection of the restaurant itself and its goals and aspirations. Is it the sandwich cut in four with frilly toothpicks through white bread, with over broiled bacon and under ripe tomato with iceberg? Well, you’re either in a classic diner, or a cheap hotel restaurant. Are there seemingly way too many adjectives describing the bread and/or bacon? Is there avocado or aioli? Well then you just may be in a gastro pub there bud.

Grill Me A Cheese

I have eaten a lot of grilled cheeses. My all time favourite lunch growing up was when my mom would make an actual pile of grilled cheeses piled on a plate, family style, for her, my sister and I (I’m not sure you could pay my dad to eat a grilled cheese), always with a big glass of milk and plenty of pickles. Honestly, every grilled cheese should be served with a pickle on the side.

My Bologna

I don’t know about you, my audience of sandwich connoisseurs and aficionados out there, but I have a pretty strong picture in my mind of the perfect example of a sandwich. It’s that sandwich from commercials, cartoons, and memories that may or may not have actually ever happened. It is our culture’s residual image of a sandwich. It is white bread, some kind of meat, cheese, lettuce and maybe tomato. You can’t tell exactly what else is on there, or even what kind of meat or cheese, leaving it open to interpretation. Most of the time, I picture there being some mustard and mayo on there, the cheese is cheddar, and I’m not sorry at all to say, the meat is Bologna.

peanut butter and raspberry jam

Go make yourself a peanut butter sandwich

I love peanut butter sandwiches. There just always, always must be an ‘and’. I’ll accept peanut butter on toast for a quick breakfast, but apart from that it must always have a companion. When attempting to put PB on an sandwich, a chaperone is required for it to enter my tummy.

The Dagwood Sandwich

What is a Dagwood? Let’s not over complicate it. It’s really just any very large sandwich with multiple meats. Sure, you can stretch the definition to include uncut clubhouses and Subway cold cut combos if you wish. I even saw a nice fella on YouTube trying to sell a BELT …

There are a lot of sandwiches out there.

It makes sense. If a sandwiches are anything between two pieces of bread, then the permutations are nearly endless. Even the bread. How many kinds of bread are there? I’m not sure. I haven’t done that research yet. Maybe I could ask Google right now, but that’s a topic that …
