This stretches the concept of a sandwich. It looks like a beef dish with bread on the side.

Nope, the bread is underneath, although this version might be a tad overstuffed That's why it's called an open-faced sandwich. Absolutely delish!

Agreed. Hot beef and hot pork sandwiches like that (well, not quite like that one) were some of my favorite foods growing up. Potatoes, gravy, meat, bread.... what more could a growing boy ask for?

That's what I thought too, but they are delish and it's gravy on, not in. We often have "hot chicken sandwiches" when we have leftover chicken.

How does the gravy stay ON the bread without sinking into it?

Well, it doesn't. Do you have a problem with bread and gravy? I think it's a delicious combination!

Open faced hot turkey, or hot beef sandwiches are on nearly every diner menu in the USA. Like GG said, you need a knife and fork to eat one, unlike a hamburger.
That reminds me, the last time we were in the UK we took the train from London out to Windsor Castle. At a village restaurant we ordered what was listed on the menu as an "American Hamburger" and it was pretty darn good. We were fascinated by a couple of proper British ladies at the next table eating the same loaded burger with forks and knives, which never left their hands.
Different strokes for different folks, as they say.

Kay, my Aunt would eat most of her sandwiches that way. I think it started when she got her dentures and was afraid to bite into sandwiches. Never got over that fear, I guess. Or maybe because she was a perfect "lady". Tried darned hard to make me into one, too, but just like my Mom, I managed to escape her powers!

Wow so many different types of sandwiches.
Some of them are close to what other countries have also.
Thanks for sharing this link with us.

Interesting CG! I wonder if both the proper British ladies had dentures? They had an eye on us too, eating "American Burgers" animal style. No doubt we were Americans. We all had a terrible time minding our manners without eye rolling.
Who eats an "American Burger" with a knife and fork?
