Today is Sandwich Day because on this date in 1718, John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich was born.
While the sandwich was named after him, there is debate as to whether he was the first to create and eat a sandwich.
Since today is Sandwich Day, I thought I would share some more recipes from my vintage Better Homes and Garden New Cookbook.
This is called a Choo-choo because the bottom crust is not cut so the bread is still coupled like a train.
I grew up reading the comic strip, Blondie. So when I think of a sandwich, I think of this guy - Dagwood Bumstead. He was created by artist Chic Young in 1930. Dagwood could eat a huge stack of sandwich and in all those years, he never gained an inch.
Here is the recipe for the sandwich named after him.
I love how this sandwich is topped with an olive. How appropriate!
I'm joining Suzanne and Vintage Thingies Thursday again this week.
