Easily transportable and completely satisfying, the sandwich is America’s favorite lunchtime staple.  From BLTs to ham and cheese, sandwiches come in a variety of flavors and styles.  In honor of this national holiday, grab your favorite sandwich and a bag of chips and chow down.

With unlimited sandwich options, deciding on what to eat can be a little difficult.  How often do you go into a deli and are offered bread and meat combinations you didn’t even know existed?  I get stressed out when they hurriedly ask me, “Roll, hero, whole wheat roll, wrap, spinach wrap, or bagel?”

Who even knew there were that many choices?  Never mind what’s going inside the roll: “Roast beef, ham, swiss, turkey, bologna, cheddar, American, or tuna?”  As one who needs a little time to pick out the perfect sandwich, I usually walk into the deli with a game plan.

Whether you’re grabbing a sandwich at the deli or not, love your panini press, or love the classic hero, this day is for you.

Celebrate, grab your favorite sandwich, or try one of our favorites below that are sure to pep-up your lunch break.
