This Restaurant Replaces Bread With Pickles For A Whole New Kind Of Sandwich

As National Sandwich Day arrives, we take a look at one of the more rogue innovations that sandwich making his seen in recent times

November 3 2020 will always be remembered as an important day in the history of the United States, a day when thousands, perhaps millions of Americans, stood up and exercised their right to…eat a sandwich on National Sandwich Day.

Ok, so we do have an election happening today which we anticipate will be dominating your news feeds. However, we do encourage you to still find the time to treat yourself to a sandwich. National Sandwich Day only comes around once a year and it would be a crying shame not to make the most of it.

What’s your National Sandwich Day treat?

Chances are that you eat a lot of sandwiches, so you must be asking yourself “how can I make National Sandwich Day extra special?” Well, look no further, we give to you Elsie’s Pickle Sandwich.

Yes, that’s right, Elsie’s, which can be found in Haddon Township, New Jersey, has been replacing the bread on their sandwiches with pickles. It’s a bold move. Bread is pretty much the one ingredient that remains consistent in a sandwich. Well, not anymore, Elsie’s bread-free alternative allows you to build your own sandwich with a choice of meats, cheeses, and sauces, but no bread, just pickle.

The slightly thinner pickle sandwich

That is a chunky pickle. For those who find it a little too chunky there is also the option of using thinner pickles and getting a roll-up sandwich. Apparently, the bread-free idea came from a resurrected family pickle recipe.

If you need any more convincing that a pickle sandwich is a good idea, we should inform you that November 14 is also National Pickle Day. National Sandwich Day and National Pickle Day in the same month? A match made in heaven. Well, at least to the good folks over at Elsie’s they are.

If you’re not willing to take a trip all the way to New Jersey for a sandwich (which we understand) then the pickle sandwich is something you could try at home.

Whatever you end up doing, we wish you a happy and belly-filling National Sandwich Day.
