They take their pizza seriously at Il Cane Rosso in Dallas, but that doesn't mean the VPN-certified pizzeria doesn't make a mean sandwich too. When the Cane Rosso team comes in every morning, they cook their sandwich bread (made from their same pizza dough) at 500°F before firing up the oven to the scorching 900°F pizza temperature to toast the bread, giving it that crispy, slightly charred outside.
'sausage sandwiches' on Serious Eats
Since 1924, Long Beach locals have been flocking to Joe Jost's, a mellow bar that serves up beers at 29 degrees (they even have a thermometer showing the current temperature) by the schooner along with pickled eggs, chili peppers, peanuts, pretzels, and a delicious little sandwich called the "Joe's Special." For $2.95, bartenders will give you a Polish sausage wrapped in a fresh slice of rye bread, served with Swiss cheese, a pickle and mustard.
This is by no means a healthy undertaking, but hey—you're definitely getting a serving or two of veggies in there.
You have to love an Italian meat shop with posters of saints on the walls and a friendly neighborhood crowd and chatty counter staff, where a bag of chips with your sandwich costs 30 cents. It's the sausage sandwich at Carbone's Italian Sausage Market that's worth an order, as they make the starring meat in house, flattened into a juicy slab with red pepper flakes and fennel.
It's not a spicy, smoky-sweet chorizo you'll find in the chorizo sandwich (listed as "sausage sandwich"; $3.95) at El Gran Castillo de Jagua.
It sounds like a novelty stunt, or a Primanti's knockoff--Belgian frites and fried merguez sausage and tons of sauce in a bun, served at Belgium native Pierre Vandamme's fries-and-waffles shop, Bruges. But it's a classic friterie sandwich called a "mitraillette," directly translated to "machine gun"--and a far more refined sandwich than the description lets on.
While sausage sandwiches aren't usually the first thing I'd order on a lunch menu, City Sandwich is helping me appreciate them, thanks to a delectable sandwich known as Dave ($8.95).
The Henrique ($8.95) at City Sandwich is a very sexy sandwich.
Think of the beef sausage hero ($10, drink included) at Má Pêche as, essentially, a glorified wiener.
In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check...
[Photographs: Robyn Lee] Since we like Oktoberfest, and we like Shake Shack, how could we not like Shacktoberfest? Until October 10th, all the Shake Shacks around town (except Citi Field and Saratoga Race Course) are offering special Oktoberfest menu...
"Good choice!" The girl behind the counter nodded in approval when I ordered a spicy sausage laffa from Olympic Pita.
Primanti's it's not, but The Pittsburgh ($12) sandwich at Rye House clearly takes its inspiration from that iconic Steel City lunch—tossing french fries and coleslaw right in the sandwich.
