The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread! 10 Recipes to Celebrate National Sandwich Month

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches With Tomatoes and Pesto


It’s time to start slicing that bread and loosening those belts — August is National Sandwich Month!

The first recorded sandwich was by the famous rabbi, Hillel the Elder, who lived during the 1st century B.C. He thought of the spectacular concept of putting bitter herbs between two pieces of matzo during a Passover feast. Lucky for us, sandwiches have become a little more tasty and creative since then.

From reinventing the classic grilled cheese sandwich, to experimenting with a Vietnamese bánh mì, we have rounded up 10 spectacular sandwich recipes to try this August. Now that really is the best thing since sliced bread!
