National Sandwich Day

03 Nov

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Friends – this is an awesome day – National Sandwich Day!  Sandwiches are so varied in how you can make them – what bread, what meats, hot or cold, grilled, pressed, open or closed, condiments, toppings – sigh – let me slow down.  The options are out there my friends.  Do you know how the day got started?

English history says that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich.  He was a heavy gambler and would spend hours at the tables in London’s gambling halls.  In 1762, he created the sandwich by putting meat between two pieces of bread.  This allowed him to stay at the tables longer to gamble.  Thus, the sandwich was made.

And do you know what Elvis Presley liked on his sandwiches?  Peanut butter, banana and bacon (sorry Bacon) and then it was grilled.  It does sound interesting in a round about way.

      I know! At times instead of using bread, mom/dad use lettuce. It’s just as tasty for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    Interesting story of the birth of a sandwich. I have no idea that it is a gambler’s fast food.
