If you're a sandwich addict like I am, you probably already know that Nov. 3 is National Sandwich Day, aka an entire 24 hours dedicated to the world's most versatile and beloved food. If you haven't already planned out your celebratory meals for the day, maybe these insanely creative sandwiches will give you some ideas.
While not every food deserves a national day of recognition — I'm looking at you, rice pudding — sandwiches are more than worthy of the honor. They're the perfect combination of foods: the delicious taste of bread is balanced out with the juicy flavors of meat, the creamy compliments of the cheese, and the perfect crunch of vegetables. No matter how picky or adventurous you are, I'm confident there is a sandwich out there for you. Not into eating animal products? Veggie sandwiches are more than enough to fill you up at any meal. Not a fan of bread? Collard greens make great wrap substitutes. Dairy-free? Skip the cheese! Hot or cold, big or small, they're the kind of food you can eat any time of day. They are, quite possibly, the world's most perfect food.
So, are you ready to celebrate pure deliciousness? Here are 15 creative sandwiches that will ensure you do National Sandwich Day the right way.
