How to Make the Perfect Sandwich Sandwiches today as we know it, are just slices of ham and cheese put together with two slices of bread. The dictionary definition of sandwich is two or more slices of bread with layer or layers of meat, cheese or other various condiments. But where did the word ‘sandwich’ come from? You and I both know that a sandwich does not contain sand in it. In fact sandwich is actually a title of an English Nobleman, John Montagu, The Fourth Earl of Sandwich. John Montagu was gambling late at night, when he was hungry, he asked the waiter for slices of meat between two slices of bread so his fingers wouldn’t be greasy and it would keep the cards clean. But since John Montagu gambled very often, he would order it every time. It soon caught on to outsiders, where eating sandwiches were the perfect food while gambling. The perfect sandwich should be slices of bread with anything you like in it; it should be just the way you like it. Sandwiches can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks. How big the sandwich is can determine whether it should be for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. For example a basic grill cheese sandwich containing, two slices of bread and one slice of cheese is small and light, therefore it should be snack. A bacon, egg and cheese sandwich is one hearty meal, but it has breakfast written all over it. Bacon, lettuce and tomato, sounds familiar? Of course, the B. L. T. is one of the most famous sandwiches out there. The B. L. T. can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, or dinner all depending on the amount of bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes you put in it. My all time favorite would have to be the classic turkey sandwich. And no, you do not have to wait until there are leftovers from Thanksgiving. The first thing you would need to do is buy turkey. No, not the entire turkey! You can buy sliced turkey from your local supermarket or deli. Usually I prefer honey-glazed smoked turkey, which contains a sweet smoky flavor. Next you would have to buy bread, what kind of sandwich would it be without bread? I would suggest whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread, why? You have to taste it to see for yourself, even if you run out of materials to make sandwiches; you can most definitely eat this on its own. The next thing I would get is lettuce and tomatoes; they just add this fresh, crisp flavor to the sandwich. One last condiment I suggest getting is cheese, pepper-jack cheese to be exact. If you don’t like spicy foods, I would then suggest Swiss-cheese. If you dislike the holes, you can always get American cheddar or mozzarella. After you buy all the materials needed to make the classic turkey sandwich, start off heating a grill or a pan, use low heat. No need to oil or butter it because you would just be toasting the bread and melting the cheese. Take two slices of the whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread and put it onto the grill or pan side by side. Next take two slices of the pepper-jack cheese and put one slice on each slice of bread. Turn off the heat once you see the cheese melting slightly. The next step is the fun part, “have it your way”, put turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese or even bread on top of the melted cheese. Go ahead stack them anyway you like it, but don’t forget to eat it.
