In an effort to cut back on carbs, I often make breadless sandwiches. I roll up a slice of cheese with a slice of meat or just layer a sandwich on a plate, minus the bread.

When bread is a necessity for something like pimento cheese, I only use one slice of bread instead of the traditional 2 slices.

I just don't eat bread. I also don't have it in the house.

Little gem lettuces make a nice, small container to place a sandwich filling - attractive and healthier than bread also! Would look good at a party/buffet.

Love the look of the cuke sub "buns". The Portabella halloumi burgers look yummy, too. Definitely a knife-and-fork sandwich in our house, though.

I've substituted a romaine lettuce leaf for the bread for ages. I do slice a bit of the spine off, tapering it carefully so that it is barely above the leafy part. That way the romaine is very flexible and doesn't crack when you roll the leaf. Lay some thin meat slices and a bit of cheese, roll, and stuff into your mouth. Or be polite, stab with a toothpick, and put a few on a plate. Mine is usually the grab-and-go version.

I'm not trying to be pedantic here and argue that it's not a sandwich without bread. There are some really clever ideas in that link.

The thread got me curious and I googled. Wiki includes bread in the definition of the sandwich but what I found really humorous was a ruling by a Boston court:

In the United States, a court in Boston, Massachusetts ruled that "sandwich" includes at least two slices of bread.[1] and "under this definition, this court finds that the term 'sandwich' is not commonly understood to include burritos, tacos, and quesadillas, which are typically made with a single tortilla and stuffed with a choice filling of meat, rice, and beans."[15]...

I have a cucumber...

So, a Danish open face sandwich isn't a sandwich. Well, it's still smørrebrød.
