That is just a small sampling. Where are the Po Boy, Cuban, Media Noche and Reuben etc. I always thought the Muffuletta originated at the Central Grocery in NOLA and a cheese steak was made with rib-eye and not chicken.

The one thing I miss most about low carb dieting is sandwiches.

Thanks for the link, creative - wow, there are some great looking sandwiches there.

The only thing they could come up with for the US was peanut butter and jelly?

Ha...yes, I thought the same about UK being represented by the chip butty!
But then saw that London gets to be defined by a pork roast roll (far better).

What sandwich do you think better represents US?

Wonder how they decided on what gets shown...

I don't know for certain what might be best, but peanut butter and jelly sure ain't it.

Perhaps the most common and ubiquitous sandwich in the US is the hamburger, but there are so many variations on it that it's hard to say that it qualifies as just one sandwich. The Hot Dog is also supposed to be an American contribution to sandwich style foods.

For cold sandwiches, I'd go with a Poor Boy/Hero/Submarine sandwich, as they are found just about everywhere under different names.

IMHO, I think PB&J would be the only all-encompassing U.S. sandwich, except maybe a grilled American cheese sammy (aka Kraft, Borden, etc. - sliced processed cheese). There are a multitude of regional specialties, some of which have been mentioned in this thread, as well as your link.

Was just going to say that, RP.

Don't forget that Po Boys can be made with fried oysters, shrimp, fish and soft-shell blue crab, served hot/warm.
