Since that time so long ago, we have made up for lost time and statistics say that Americans eat over 300 million sandwiches a day! I guess that is why the sandwich gets a day all to itself! Today is National Sandwich Day and therefore, the subject of Friday Faves!
Alicia couldn't decide which is the best between two kinds of sandwiches. Her first choice was a good French Dip. I know the appeal of this sandwich, it is also a fave of mine! Alicia says, "I like French dips because they are so delicious. I love the flavor of the roast beef with the cheese. Then when you dip it in the au jus it’s so perfect." I couldn't agree more. One caveat is that the au jus has to be flavorful and not bland. When it is good, it makes the sandwich! The Pioneer Woman has a great recipe here!
- Crab salad with avocado and bacon (I haven't tried making this, but I must!)
- Turkey with avocado and bacon (This will be easy to do on my own.)
- Because Thanksgiving is coming, I am looking forward to a Hot Turkey open-face sandwich with gravy. (I've had this every year after Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember! So good!)
- Or, turkey with cranberry sauce on it. Don't forget the salt and pepper! (Another after Thanksgiving staple.)
So, there you go! Some of our favorite sandwiches and how to put them together. What are your faves? Do you like creamy or crunchy peanut butter? Whatever you enjoy, eat it today in honor of National Sandwich day!
