To honor National Sandwich Month we've put together this epic glossary of sandwiches. If you weren't already convinced, this should prove to you how much we obsess over sandwiches. Herewith the American sandwiches, and check out the international edition over here.
These sandwiches are all iconic somewhere, though they range in national fame from the grilled cheese to the horseshoe (wait, what's a horseshoe?). Many of these we've eaten before; some were new to us. And though we divided them regionally, they can of course be found in any number of cities across the country. See them all in the slideshow!
Since we didn't catch every single sandwich out there, please chime in with any we missed.
