Celebrate National Sandwich Day! by rachelshulman November 3, 2009, 10:04 pm Today is National Sandwich Day, supposedly because November 3rd marks the birthday of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. Legend has it that Montagu ordered his servant to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread so Montagu could eat one-handed while gambling. While I’ve yet to be convinced that National Sandwich Day wasn’t created to sell more sliced bread, the holiday is still a good excuse to make a sandwich for dinner tonight – or any night for that matter. Sandwiches can be much more than your basic peanut butter and jelly. When done right, a sandwich can be a simple, healthy, and elegant meal. Here are my top sandwich choices from the Eat.Drink.Better archive: Meatless Monday: 8 Meat-Free Sandwich Ideas Meatless Monday: Berry Compote, Tofu Pesto Sandwiches, and Pasta With Chickpeas A Beefy (yet Beefless) Burger with Black Beans For more ideas, visit: Smitten Kitchen’s Sandwich Archive Sandwiches, from Vietnam to South Carolina Scanwiches To test your sandwich knowledge, take this quiz.
