I recently read an interesting article about sandwiches in one of the foodservice magazines I get here at the association. Being the sandwich fan I am, PMQ Magazine’s article spurred me into thinking about my days working at Subway as a ‘sandwich artist’ during college and before that, my fascination as a kid with Dagwood’s mightily stacked sandwich he would build in the cartoon strip ‘Blonde’.
When you stop to think about how portable and convenient sandwiches are, plus all the different ingredients and sauces you can layer and slather onto them, the sky is really the limit – literally and figuratively speaking just like Dagwood’s sandwiches.
As you can see, this is how this post came to be, so I sifted through our recipes and found five of our most popular sandwiches to share. Enjoy!
