Classic sandwiches that have withstood the test of time


Sandwiches are the ultimate comfort food, easy to make and consume. Some sandwiches have become so popular over time they’re now considered classics.  Here are some well-known favourites commonly served in cafes or restaurants, with tips on making them at home. Toasters like the Electrolux ETS5604S make it easy to put together a great-tasting sandwich, with its integrated bun warmer that allows you to warm up all kinds of breads, including baguette rolls.


Club Sandwich

If a restaurant offers sandwiches on its menu, chances are the Club sandwich will make an appearance.  While its ingredients may vary from time to time, the classic Club consists of sliced poultry like chicken or turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.


It is often cut into halves or quarters, and held together by hors d’œuvre sticks. What makes its look memorable is its two layers of fillings, separated by an extra slice of bread.


French Dip

The French Dip is a roast beef sandwich that’s dipped into meat jus before being eaten.

Created in the early 20th century, this sandwich features thinly-sliced roast beef on a baguette served with a cup of beef jus or broth on the side.


How it’s consumed makes crusty Italian rolls or even hardier breads suitable for use with this sandwich. It is possibly one of the few that’s at its best when soggy, because what sets it apart is how it’s eaten. The sandwich is dipped into the jus, soaked and the soggy, salty result is then savoured.

Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes are all you need to make a BLT sandwich.

It doesn’t get simpler than this. Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes. That’s the three key ingredients in a BLT. As long as it’s between two slices of bread or baguette, it doesn’t matter. Mayonnaise is also often added.


While calories should be the last thing on anyone’s mind if they’re eating a BLT, turkey bacon and low-fat mayo is sometimes used to lower the fat and salt content.


Sloppy Joe
Throw on a napkin before consuming this one. A type of loose meat sandwich, the Sloppy Joe is so named for its filling – loose ground beef, onions, spices and ketchup on a hamburger bun.


It likely got its name because it’s impossible to eat without the filling oozing out – but chances are you’ll love it anyway.
