Best Thing since Sliced Bread

Restaurant Recipes for Sandwiches

A great many of my restaurant guests have requested these restaurant Sandwich Recipes and other restaurant recipes they have enjoyed ...and keep coming back for!

When you think “sandwich,” what comes to mind? Two pieces of bread with some meat jammed in between?

These hot selling restaurant sandwiches ARE WAY MORE than that!

Sandwiches really didn’t “take hold” in America until bakeries started selling pre-sliced bread.

Pre-sliced bread allowed children to make their own sandwiches without having to use a sharp knife. And as we all know, a sandwich is “portable,” and Americans were “on the move.”

Wonder Bread began selling its soft white bread in 1930.

This was so popular it produced a new American phrase: “The best thing since sliced bread.”

Today Americans are fortunate to have a huge variety of foods available for culinary endeavors and it doesn’t have to be a big deal to make delicious sandwiches for you, your family and your friends to enjoy.

Did you know? The use of some kind of bread to lie under and over some other food, or used to scoop up and enclose or wrap some other type of food, long predates the 1700's (the Earl of Sandwich), and is found in numerous much older cultures worldwide.
