Today is National Sandwich Day!
It is thought that the 4th Earl of Sandwich John Montagu was the designer of the sandwich. It is said that the Earl would spend so many hours at the gambling table that he would asks the servants to put slices of meat between bread so he could keep on playing. Soon his gambling mates would also ask for sandwiches to that they too could stay at the gambling tables.
Thank you Pat for the image of this sandwich.
