If you find yourself mysteriously craving a delicious footlong sammie today, it may be because November 3rd is National Sandwich Day. To celebrate, we suggest you go take advantage of the freebies that are being offered in honor of the holiday.
But if you find that you can’t break away from your desk or already have non-sandwich dining plans, we have the next best thing: 10 amazing sandwiches that you can make over the weekend. Even if you don’t actually make these recipes, you can still appreciate the beauty in a glorious, delicious sandwich. Sandwiches can and should be celebrated in many ways.
