25 Super Sandwiches To Gobble Down

August is National Sandwich Month, and with that said I wanted to pay homage to one of my favorite main meals I grew up on. My Mom didn’t cook… so sandwiches were a go to meal for her to make. I can’t say they were always elaborate, nor were they always called sandwiches. Sometimes my Mom referred to them as tortas, which is a latin sandwich served on a bolillo instead of sliced bread. In my world tortas are just as wonderfully delicious. Here is a round up of both sandwiches and tortas which in the end are the same thing. Enjoy.
