A sweet strawberry and nutella sandwich.

Let's be honest, people can be very passionate about sandwiches. Ever see the Friends episode where someone ate Ross’ "Moist Maker" sandwich? I believe the halls of the museum rang with, "You ate MY SANDWICH?! MYYYY SANDWICH?!"

I’m sure we can all relate to Ross’ mild breakdown on some level, as we too have felt strongly about a great sandwich. Of course, the ultimate sandwich is different for most people; the choice of meat, filling, and bread are all up for discussion and debate.

We recently wrote an article on how to put together the Perfect Sandwich with tips from a pro, but we also decided to gather the editors together to create some of their favorite sandwiches, whether sweet or savory, meat- or seafood-filled.

Check out our recipes below and please feel free to share your favorites with us!
