Different types of Sandwiches

All around the world, there are hundreds of different combinations of sandwiches from gyro to Pb & J so let’s take a look at some of the most iconic sandwiches from around the world.

I figured why not start out with the classics, for most people here in the united states the first thing that comes to mind is the age-old salty and sweet delight the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But don’t let its simplicity take away from its amazing flavor.

Next up is a classic east of the USA, I’m talking about the cubano. The name kind of gives it away but it origniated in cuba and it consists of: 5 main ingredients Cuban bread, ham, Swiss cheese, pickled cucumber, and mustard. The sansdwich is then toasted with a generous amount of butter until it has a crispy exterior.

Next up we have another american classic that I figured I would mention as it is legendary all over the world and is a classic that shouldnt go unmentioned. That sandwhich is the Hoagie as well as the Philly cheesteak and as it turns out both these legendary sandwiches originated in Phillidelphia. The Hoagie is an Italian American creation that consists of: hoagie rolls, ham, salami, tomato, lettuce, onion, italian dressing, and cheese. The philly cheesesteak has less ingredients and they are as follows: Thin cut ribeye, onion, provolone cheese, and hoagie rolls.

Our next sandwich finally goes far away from the states and lands us in Greece. Now maybe some of you can guess why we are here but I’ll just let everyone know that it is for another world renowned sandwich and I am of course talking about the Gyro. Gyro is a traditional greek sandwich that is enjoyed typically for lunch but it can really be eaten at any time. It is made with: Pita bread, tzatziki, Lamb and mutton, onion, tomato, yogurt, garlic, and cucumber.
