I see your “sandwich” and raise you the Double Down.
Two hundred and fifty years ago, John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich famously ordered meat between two slices of bread and had no idea how much his simple request would change the world. A quarter of a millenium later, it’s hard to imagine how humanity survived before the invention of the sandwich. And now we’ve got the Double Down. We’re amazing.
The American military has invented a slew of awesome things and one of their latest innovations is less something that will destroy cities or power ships to distant planets, but one that will feed soldiers. It’s a sandwich that stays fresh for two years.
I couldn’t find the origins of the shooter’s sandwich— it looks British or rural French, but it looks like one of the absolute tastiest looking simple sandwiches I’ve ever seen. I’ve never had one, but I hear it makes for fantastic sandwich fare and it’s pretty easy. Two big hunks of fresh steak and chopped mushrooms in a hollowed-out loaf of bread and the whole thing is pressed down.
Continuing in his theme of creating amazing American-themed sandwich creations, after he created “The American”, Tingham is back with a right hook of a sandwich to have you after lunch napping with the fishes. Called “The Jimmy Hoffa”, this bad boy is less over the top and more right to the point and no bullshit. Bacon fat galore, however.
Inspired by last week’s post about the sandwich, “The Angry French Canadian”, IHC admin Tingham decided to create his own awesome sandwich to represent the awesomeness of America. Called “The Amercian”, this is more or less a serious sandwich— not just some collection of random junk food that’s been deep fried and covered in peanut butter, “The American” is a true masterpiece.
