Sandwich Savoir-Faire: Top 6 Sandwiches

August is National Sandwich Month!

We think a sandwich is perfect anytime, but in the summer a sandwich makes a neat solution for a quick dinner or a picnic lunch. On a hot evening who wants to cook? Opt instead for a cold sandwich with choice charcuterie and a bottle of rosé.

 “America is a confirmed sandwich nation. Everywhere you go you find sandwich stands, sandwich shops, and nine out of ten people seem to stick to the sandwich-and-glass-of-milk or cup-of-coffee luncheon.” –  James Beard

Sandwich Quote

We have already laid out a little history and a plan for sandwich domination here. Feast your eyes on a few of our favorite sandwich ideas…

1. Open Face Sandwich

This peppery saucisson sec tartine with refreshing slices of cucumber makes an easy sandwich.


2. Smoky Chicken

This simple chicken salad sandwich, made with smoked chicken breast and chorizo, was a smash hit at an office tasting.

3. Pulled Duck

And though we advocate the cold sandwich as a summer meal, it’s hard to resist the lure of this pulled duck sandwich.


4. Lobster Roll

Or the lobster roll with bacon, which is undoubtedly the perfect summer sandwich.


5. Pressed Sandwich

A spicy pressed chorizo sandwich with cheese and red peppers satisfies the heat seekers.
