A World of Sandwiches

Our family absolutely loves sandwiches. There are so many varieties, that you can have a sandwich for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, or a midnight snack and each one would not have one ingredient repeated.

Sandwiches are so popular, there are restaurants that name their sandwiches after celebrities or certian historical events. Even Dagwood, a cartoon character, is famous for his outrageous sandwiches.

The first sandwich is said to have been made by John Montague, the fourth Earl of Sandwich during a card game. Since he was playing cards with one hand, he decided to stack his bread, cheese and meat enabling him to hold it in the other hand, making a sandwich.

Some other stories date the sandwich back to 100 years B.C. when a Rabbi placed apple slices and nuts between two matzos.
