The ultimate in convenient food and one of the most beloved food around the world, it is no surprise that the humble sandwich has it own day.

The unofficial holiday commemorates the birth anniversary of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. Rumor has it that the modern day version of the sandwich came about when Montagu's servants put some meat between two slices of bread as a way for the Earl to eat his meal while gambling.

How to Celebrate?

  • Eat sandwiches for all your meals. Have a bacon and egg sandwich for breakfast, an egg salad sandwich for lunch, a roast beef sandwich for dinner and an ice cream sandwich for desert.
  • Gourmet up your sandwich by adding gourmet ingredients like bacon jam, goat cheese and roasted beets.
  • Make a grilled cheese sandwich instead of just a normal sandwich.
