The American 10  sandwich that has become famous

One American culinary invention is the sandwich. Though created elsewhere, most would say that the US has adopted the sandwich—just look at how many of us get stirred up over whether a hot dog is a sandwich! As long as you eat it sideways, yes. 

Western New York's French dip counterpart, the Beef on Weck, is a roast beef sandwich on a kummelweck bread with horseradish and jus for dipping.

Any Los Angeles taco-stand aficionado knows that if you're hungry, you order torta de adobada (spicy beef), milanesa (cutlet), or huevo (eggs) slathered in avocado, tomatoes, and peppers on a soft bun to last all day.

 Our first pick is a southern classic that hasn't made much of an impact up north. The Pimento sandwich, a simple hot sandwich with wonderful pimento cheese between two slices of buttered Texas toast, beats all grilled cheeses.

According to some sources, the Muffaletta sandwich originated at New Orleans' Central Grocery, and we owe them a Wookiee life debt. The taste of Italian sliced meats and cheeses, briny olive salad, and a huge round Sicilian sesame bread is unmatched.

Okay, this may be stretching it. Kentucky's Hot Brown has more in common with eggs Benedict than any other sandwich on this list, but to leave this exquisite marriage of turkey, bacon, and Mornay sauce off would be sacrilege.

Louisiana's second entry on this list is their Po' boy, which serves fried catfish or shrimp on a crusty French baguette with mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, butter, pickles, and Louisiana hot sauce.

Before you go all "well actually" on us, the Cuban sandwich was invented in Florida—maybe in Ybor City, Tampa, or Key West. The USA is responsible for its excellent combination of pulled pork, ham, cheese, mustard, and handmade pickles on a toasted Cuban baguette. Mmmmmm.

Philippe or Cole invented the French Dip sandwich first in Los Angeles, a contentious issue. Both are great, but Philippe's offers their French Dip with au jus, whereas Cole's serves it separately.

Whether the Reuben came from New York City or Omaha, Nebraska, corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss, and Russian dressing on rye is wonderful.

 What else can be said about this sandwich? One of the few school lunch staples that still stands up today, the Sloppy Joe isn't just a sandwich; it's an experience that lasts long after you eat it, mostly because a glob of ground beef spilled on your favorite shirt and required some time to remove.
