Sandwiches are an ancient tradition, dating back to the 1st century B.C., when Rabbi Hillel the Elder created the Passover tradition of filling two matzohs with a mixture of apples, chopped nuts, spices, wine and herbs -- an elaborate dish, and certainly a fry cry from today's simplified peanut butter and jelly concoctions. The term sandwich, coined in 1762, emerged in England in reference to slices of bread filled with cold cuts, predecessors of today's array of fillings.
From French dips to Fluffernutters, Monte Cristos to simple grilled cheeses, sandwiches cover an ingredient listing spanning the alphabet -- and including anything that can feasibly fit between two slices of bread. What's your favorite local sandwich? Describe its contents in the comments.
