So many to choose from, the Club Sandwich would be a good choice for an American sandwich.

History of The Club Sandwich: How to make a Club Sandwich

or maybe the hamburger.

There are some really tasty looking sandwiches in that article, creative. My eyes thank you, but my tummy is now on a mission to make me eat. That peanut butter and jelly sammie just wouldn't do it justice right now. And for heaven's sakes, make it on honey whole wheat bread and leave the yummy crust on! I know one thing for sure, though. Our daughter would love a chip butty! Her ideal supper is french fries as a side to a baked potato! As far as three slices of bread in a club sandwich? Whenever I've seen those, it looks like they are made out of thinner slices of bread. Maybe those three add up to two normal slices? I wouldn't know - my mouth isn't big enough to try one. :

If I had to pick the quintessential U.S. sandwich, my choice would the a hamburger. Even though they might be dressed up differently from region to region, in the end they all are pretty much a ground beef patty between two halves of a sandwich bun as the basic.

Put your meat, cheese, and toppings between two sturdy pieces of romaine lettuce. When I want a sandwich but not the bread, I take two large leaves, fold each one tip-to-base to double them up and square them off, then make my sandwich. If you want condiments, I recommend you smear them between the slices of meat or cheese because they just don't adhere to the lettuce like they would on bread. NOT a real sandwich, but still danged good.

Presumably low carb doesn't mean no carb so how about pitta bread?
(Nicer briefly warmed up, e.g. on a grill).

Would that be allowed?

I used to have the biggest crush on Peggy Lee! Haven't thought about her in decades.

Just have to respond to CG's mention above of a peanut butter sandwich on a good whole wheat bread with crust...YES! I'll happily have one of those with a spread of good honey instead of jelly any day.

Fortunately, Carl's Jr. offers just that. The call it lo carb, and it is a burger with the toppings wrapped in a leaf of iceberg lettuce. Kayelle then slides it into a sandwich bag to hold it together

Pita bread has more than twice the carbs of white bread. It's basically white bread with the air squished out, but it ends up being thicker.
