Want a Sandwich?

Hearty Veggie Sandwich

Hearty Veggie Sandwich

We love sandwiches, we eat sandwiches, when handed a sandwich, we gobble it down. We eat sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a midnight snack. It seems we can not get enough sandwiches. We may not even ask “what’s inside”. It doesn’t matter, because it’s in between two pieces of bread, so it must be good.

Where did this world famous meal come from?

Some believe that it was created by an old Jewish Grandma who placed lamb and bitter herbs in between two pieces of Matzo during Passover (yum). Others believe it goes back to the middle ages, where thick slabs of stale bread were used as a plate which soaked up the flavor of the meats which were placed upon it. But, the first use of the word sandwich goes back to an 18th century snobby, gambling, English aristocrat by the name of  John Montagu, (who was the 4th Earl of ….you guessed it, Sandwich) He was most delighted by this self contained meal because he could eat and not make a greasy mess while he was playing cards. So, there you have it, the Sandwich was named after a place by the name of Sandwich.

My award winning, Hearty Veggie Sandwiches are jam packed with healthy vegetables.  Even the strictest of meatarians, love this sandwich. You will be surprised as children, teens and adults enjoy every last bite. Try it and you will love it too.
