Finding the perfect sandwich that is not only cheap but also tasty can be a challenge. Jeff Mauro, host of the new Food Network series $24 in 24 and Sandwich King, shares his favorite sandwiches across the U.S.
Winner of the seventh season of Food Network Star and host of Sandwich King, Mauro is back with $24 in 24, a new half-hour series in which each week he travels to a new locale with a budget of just $24 to find the tastiest breakfast, lunch, and dinner in cities like Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, and Philadelphia. Many of these meals were sandwiches.
"You can make any meal into a sandwich, and any sandwich into a meal," said Mauro.
From a Cuban breakfast sandwich at Porto's Bakery in Los Angeles to an Italian beef sandwich dinner at Scatchell's Beef & Pizza in Chicago, Mauro managed to find fantastic fare in each city during the inaugural season of $24 in 24.
With all his experience eating on the go, Mauro shares with The Daily Meal his favorite sandwiches in the U.S.
