The Dagwood Sandwich originated from the comic strip character named Dagwood Bumstead, in the “Blondie” comic strip back in the 1930’s.  The term, Dagwood Sandwich denotes a tremendous size sandwich with an infinite amount of ingredients.   According to the creator of the comic strip, the only thing Dagwood could prepare in the kitchen was a mountainous pile of various leftovers, dangerously arranged between two slices of bread. The Dagwood Sandwich is a term known so well, it made it into the Webster’s New World Dictionary.

While creating this sandwich I decided to make it practical.  Instead of all the ingredients sandwiched between two slices of bread, I decided to make this into individual sandwiches, which would be easier to serve. I took leftover ingredients from my meat and cheese platter and arranged different variants inside each sandwich.

So, go ahead and use up all those leftovers, from your party.  You can create easy, delicious and beautiful sandwiches, everyone will love. As Dagwood would say “As long as we’re up, we might as well have a little snack.”

I was raised in and around an Italian family. All my life I cooked and everyone around me cooked. It was my life and still is.  In 2013 I had to go gluten-free for health reasons. I was devastated to learn that I can no longer enjoy bread and pasta, that I was so used to eating every day. Can you imagine an Italian girl not eating bread or pasta? During the last few years, I have experimented with all kinds of different products. Searching for a good tasting bread has been a struggle because there was not much available. I was super excited to find Three Bakers Rye Style bread while visiting CT, my home State. I was even more excited to learn it is available locally here in FL. It is absolutely amazing!
