Saturday Sandwich 57: The Dagwood

The Dagwood sandwich comes from an American comic called Blondie where her husband makes these huge sandwiches.


We've been really looking forward to this sandwich all week. It contains many of our favourite sandwich components. I've even been singing about it..."Oh, the Dagwood sandwich is a-comin' on over the hiiiillllll" :D

Here's a recipe if you want to try one ---> http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/05/the-dagwood-sandwich-recipe.html






So basically it's a huge sandwich layered in between 4 slices of rye bread with cheese, tomato, dill pickles, many cooked meats and topped with olives.


And, turns out, it's impossible to eat! There's no way to get a taste of the whole sandwich at once so you just have to attack it as best you can and kind of gnaw away at it until it's gone.



 It defeated me. I'd had enough of eating it before I'd finished.


It tastes good but it's just too much sandwich at once. JD said a sandwich half the size would've been much better and he's right. There was too much meat (twss), too much cheese and it was difficult to enjoy different parts of the sandwich because of all the tastes going on. It does look great though.

Overall a bit dissapointing, really.
