Hello class! Please take your seats. I have a question for you. What did you eat for lunch today? Chances are some of you had a sandwich. A sandwich is a perfect lunch food because you can make it ahead of time, add many different types of ingredients to it, and eat it without any utensils.

Sandwich

 

Did you know there was actually a time when people didn't eat sandwiches? It's hard to imagine, but it's true! Of course bread, meats and cheese have been staples of the human diet for many thousands of years, and it's very likely that people ate them together, but putting your favorite ingredients between two slices of bread wasn't something that was commonly done until the late 1700's.

 

Earl of Sandwich

 

 

The modern sandwich owes its thanks to one man who liked to eat more than just chips while he played cards with his friends. He didn't want to get his hands, and the cards, all greasy so he put the meat he wanted between two pieces of bread to keep everything clean. That man's name? John Montagu. His title? The Earl of Sandwich.

 

For a while, the sandwich was considered a man's food, to be eaten while gambling. It wasn't until 1827 that it was included in a family cookbook, making it a legitimate meal for families all over Europe and America.

 

Can you guess what the most popular sandwich in America is? Peanut butter and jelly of course! Soldiers popularized this sandwich during World War Two. Included in their food rations were peanut butter, jelly, and bread, but all separate. It didn't take long for the soldiers to combine them into one tasty sandwich. When the soldiers returned they shared this easy to make favorite with their families, and soon after millions of kids around the world were stuck with a pb & J sandwich every single day for lunch.

Buggy Sandwich

 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I should dismiss class now. I brought a peanut buggy and jelly worm sandwich for lunch, and I think I see it trying to escape!

 

 

 

 

Sandwich or Not?

Which is a sandwich?
