Egg Salad

Eggs, mayo, simple seasonings…egg salad sandwiches are controversial. Some like them about as much as others hate them, but maybe that’s why they’re so great.


The Cuban

The Cuban is essentially a hot ham and cheese sandwich but ten times better.




Nothing is more classic and epic than the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich. All you have to do is toast the bread and you’re on your way to a delightful snack no one has ever regretted.




Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are awesome mostly for nostalgic reasons, but also because they never spoil, are perfect for picnics, and frankly, are down-right delicious.


Meatball Sub

Whoever invented the Meatball Sub was a genius. Meatballs on spaghetti are great but throw them on a nice soft loaf of bread, and you’re good to go.


Breakfast Sliders

Breakfast sandwiches on a biscuit are great and all, but they can’t really beat delicious breakfast sliders. What makes them a step above? Usually they are made on sweet Hawaiian rolls!


Triple-Decker Grilled Cheese

There’s boring grilled cheese and then there’s Triple-Decker Grilled Cheese. Why settle for one slice of cheese when you can put on three different types of cheeses? It makes the sandwich way better.


Black Bean Burgers

If you like black beans, then you’re going to love the black bean burger. Throw some onion, tomato, and maybe a little bacon, and you’re about to bite into greatness.


Chicken and Waffle Sandwiches

At first glance, chicken and waffles together don’t seem like they would go well together. But give it a try and you might be surprised how amazing it truly is.


Cuban Sliders

There’s the Cuban and then there are the Cuban sliders. As we’ve discovered with the Breakfast Sliders, sliders always make a sandwich better.


The Ultimate Party Sub

Parties are good for two things: eating pizza or eating subs. In this case, the Ultimate Party Sub wins by a mile. No matter what toppings you place on the sub, it’s likely to be a righteous meal.


Roasted Cauliflower Sliders

Again, sliders always trump other kinds of sandwiches, and while a sandwich including the word “cauliflower” might seem like the wrong way to go. it’s not. It’s healthy and delicious; a combo you can never beat.


Mushroom Melt

Some might not want anything to do with mushrooms, but much like the Egg salad sandwich, they’re beloved by many.


The Dagwood

The Dagwood is a classic sandwich and like a skyscraper of tastes with the ability to have an infinite number of condiments, meats, and veggies.


Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwich

Not only easy to make but delicious to eat, the Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwich is a BBQ must. If you go with this one, put a little coleslaw on the side.


Salmon Burgers

Who doesn’t love salmon? But too often it needs a little something to improve an already good thing. Throw in some buns, tomatoes, lettuce, and you’ve got a salmon burger.


The Jibarito


The Jibarito is essentially a sandwich with fried green plantains as the bread. And it’s a delight.


Salmon BLT

Bacon makes everything better. But add salmon and you’ve just entered a point of no return, a world where the BLT doesn’t quite cut it anymore. Once you go Salmon BLT, you never go back.


Chickpea Burgers

If you’re looking for a healthier burger option, then you must try the Chickpea Burger. With egg, carrots, and garlic, it might convince you to never try red meat again. The keyword is might.


The club sandwich


The Club Sandwich is the kind of stalwart classic sandwich you pick when the waiter needs to know your order and you’re being indecisive. Go with the club. It’ll never fail you.


The Primanti


A sandwich stuffed with french fries and coleslaw will always have our vote and The Primanti does all that and more.




You might have to head on down to Lousiana to get the Muffuletta sandwich but it would be well worth the road trip.


Soft-shell crab sandwich

If you’re a fan of seafood, the soft-shell crab sandwich is like the meatball sandwich but full of delicious crab meat. How can you go wrong?


The Parms

The Parms is a sandwich with leftover chicken parm, red sauce, and a little mozzarella cheese on sub sandwich bread. It’s a magical spread that doesn’t disappoint.


Lobster roll
