National Sandwich Day is November 3! The story goes that the Earl of Sandwich was a big gambler and didn’t want to stop long enough to eat. He instructed his chef to make him something he could eat while continuing to play cards. Roast beef on a roll was presented and soon other players were demanding “I’ll have what Sandwich is having.” Then it became shortened to the “sandwich.” Although the name may attributed to the Earl of Sandwich – Americans have truly embraced the sandwich and taken it to whole new levels.
Everyday is Sandwich Day here at Sandwich America, but once a year others get into the act as well. Check out the photo gallery below for some scenes and sandwiches from National Sandwich Day 2016.
