Keeping in mind the USA uses what the UK and Canada call "streaky bacon", I'd agree MsM. The BLT is an American classic..here in the west it would be with Sourdough bread, and maybe avocado for a BLAT. Then you could add red onion for a BLOAT. It's all good.

Sandwiches from around the world!

I don't think a BLT can trump the ubiquitous nature of the burger. McDonalds, Burger King, In and Out Burgers, Bobs Big Boy, Jack In the Box, Five Guys etc etc etc. they are all national chains famous for burgers, nothing but burgers. Weekend BBQ? We all grill burgers.

You may be right Andy but a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to represent the USA is just silly.

I agree. These lists of foods that represent different states or regions never seem to get it right.

Well the sandwiches given cannot constitute a scientific result but are based on some kind of research.

It looks to me as if a writer at msn.com pitched a feature to their editor:

W: Hey, how about if I pick out pictures of a bunch of yummy-looking sandwiches from around the world and make a slide show of it?

E: Sure, that sounds like a good idea! Go for it!

So I'm guessing it's one individual spending a few hours searching the Internet for "a selection," as the main page says. Maybe s/he passed the list by a few co-workers. Nothing really involved.

Not that there's anything wrong with that! Sounds like a fun job!

You are giving the content creator too much credit. The purpose of content like this is to get people's attention and to click through, which generates ad revenue. There aren't any standards for the accuracy of the content.

The link doesn't purport to me more than what it is, i.e. (just) sandwiches from around the world NOT definitive sandwiches but maybe common ones!? Yes?

Close scrutiny can be counter productive and can lose perspective..... anyway the link has been quite favourably received and generated enough interest and feedback so that's all that can be asked of it really!

I also believe there isn't much research done for lists like this. It does promote some lively discussion on foodie forums, doesn't it.

Not to mention Red Robin, and just about every one of hundreds of brew pubs in the country, most of which have a delectable selection of burgers. Applebee's, even Denny's and Village Inn have good burgers. They really are the most ubiquitous sandwich in the US.

You find the PB&J more in the home, but the hamburger eats in and goes out on the town too.
