When a savvy 18th-century servant layered some meat between two slices of bread so that John Montagu, the hungry fourth Earl of Sandwich, wouldn't have to leave the table during an intense card game, he unsuspectingly created culinary history. Although the British population never fully sank its teeth into this novel idea--beyond developing a fondness for the delicate tea sandwich--folks on the other side of the Atlantic came to embrace the concept enthusiastically, finding endless variations on the theme. Around the time of the American Civil War, sandwiches were being served as an occasional simple supper and were sometimes packed into traveler's knapsacks. By the middle of the 20th century, the sandwich had become a major mealtime tradition and was well on its way to becoming an American food icon.
