What is Your Favorite Sandwich? – TR Robertson

By   /  September 12, 2022  /  No Comments


TR Robertson — The majority of people in the U.S. have a favorite sandwich in mind when they think about fixing or ordering a sandwich for themselves. There are several sites on the internet where writers have gathered information about the favorite sandwiches, by state, eaten most often.  In looking into this delicious topic, I visited articles by Hannah Doolin, Megan Willet and Erin McDowell, Emily Monaco, Kathy Morris, Dalia Colon, and Emily Goodman. There was some consensus for some of the states, but for other states several sandwiches stood out as a favorite to fix at home or order at a restaurant or deli. Read through the list. Note which ones you have tried or want to try or would never try. If you don’t see your favorite on the list, drop a note about the sandwich you feel should be added.

If you google some of the sandwiches you will note that some require specific bread, buns or rolls. They also will list the condiments, cheeses and veggies that should be added, if needed, as well as if the sandwich is made cold or grilled.
