We've been looking forward to National Sandwich Day for weeks, hoarding fine mustards and anchovies, thinly slicing red onions, baking fresh slider buns and whisking up grandma's homemade mayo, which calls for eggs laid that very morning. It's not every day we get to use our commercial deli meat slicer or stackable bamboo bao steamers. Grilled lamb belly doesn't always make it into our BLTs. Are you catching our drift here? It's SANDWICH DAY. Throw away that sad package of deli sushi and pay tribute with 12 of our greatest hits.
