Slideshow SLIDESHOW: 25 Sandwich Recipes We Love

By now, the world's enterprising culinary minds have shoved almost every possible food item between some bread, calling it a sandwich. Simple handheld versions of our favorite dishes are not, however, what the art of sandwich making is really about. A perfect sandwich really occupies only one culinary niche—its own. Meat, cheese, greens, or any good sandwich filling elevates bread beyond its normal limits, and the result can be truly transcendent.

We've rounded up a wide variety of sandwich recipes—from casual sliders to meaty bread-bound mains—making it easier to enjoy great sandwiches all the time. Check out the slideshow above or the list below for all the sandwiched sustenance you'll ever need.
