History of Sandwiches

There are many sandwich origin stories, but the name ‘sandwich’ came about in 1762. As one story goes, John Montagu (aka 4th Earl of Sandwich) was playing a card game and didn’t want to stop for lunch so he asked for roast beef between two slices of bread to keep his hands free to continue playing. Although sandwiches have been eaten for thousands of years, they weren’t called ‘sandwiches’ until 1762.

Growing up, I didn’t love cold sandwiches and maybe that’s because my Mom didn’t major in sandwiches. She never made them because they weren’t a common way to serve food growing up in Ukraine. I remember the first time my Grandpa had a sandwich in America, he disassembled it and ate it separately. All the kids thought that was funny but he probably thought we were the odd ones.

Chicken Sandwich Recipes

Chicken sandwiches are great in warm or cold sandwiches. I also love that you can use leftover chicken to make a great sandwich the next day. By the way, if you try the Chicken Bacon Avocado, consider our Homemade Focaccia – it’s next-level delicious!

Cold Sandwiches

Cold Sandiwches are probably the easiest of the bunch because they just have assembly required for the most part, unless you’re cooking bacon. P.S. For small batch bacon, try our Air Fryer Bacon or our favorite method for big batch bacon in the oven.

Shrimp Sandwiches (aka Easy Entertaining)
I love that there is no cooking required with this recipe, especially if you buy pre-cooked shrimp which is so tempting when the temperatures outside are climbing into the 100’s! Use a colorful variety of tomatoes to prettify your platter. Lining everything up and allowing guests to build their own sandwiches is really an easy way to entertain and it keeps things interesting. If you’re really pressed for time, you can even use a selection of good cold cuts, salami, etc and cut your prep time in half!

Open Face Sandwiches

Open-faced sandwiches are some of the easiest sandwiches to make and they easy on the eyes, like the avocado toasts which are so versatile for breakfast or lunch. We also love hot open-face sandwiches and melts. The chicken melt is a familly favorite.

Open Faced Avocado Spread Sandwiches
Easy and healthy; you are going to love these open faced avocado sandwiches! Imagine biting into a generous layer of avocado spread and through crusty toast with that subtle crunch. These sandwiches can be assembled in under 10 minutes and they are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

When cooked correctly, eggplant is tender and meaty which makes it a perfect meat substitute. I made the eggplant two ways (baked and sautéed) because I was curious and I included tutorials for both. These were so satisfying!

    Hi Natasha, all of your recipes are great, but could you help us with lunch box ideas? No cooked food as there is no microwave to warm it out.
    Thank you

    I’ve made your Philly Cheesesteak sandwich so many times. It was actually requested by family for Easter dinner this year! Two favorite family sandwiches are cream cheese and sliced cucumber on homemade (by me) Artisan bread. And bacon, fried egg, and cheese between two toasted slices of bread. My youngest son is a very picky eater still at 22. He has convinced many restaurants to add the bacon egg and cheese recipe to their menu!!

    Two of my favorite sandwiches are missing from this list. (1) The turkey club sandwich for lunch. (2) The toasted everything bagel with salmon, purple onion, onion & chive cream cheese, capers, and black pepper for breakfast.
