2009 Tournament of Sandwiches Champion


The origin of this sandwich, which is most often associated with hotels around the world, is all a matter of speculation and guesswork. The name probably comes because of its popularity at resorts and country clubs. It definitely existed in the United States by the late 19th century. The Club Sandwich was the favorite of former King Edward VIII of England and his wife, Wallis Simpson. In fact, she took great pride in preparing this sandwich.


One hot debate that raged throughout the tournament was whether or not the hamburger was infact a sandwich.


My friend Stevie, whose part of the mainstream media conspiracy decided to do some investigative reporting. He stumbled across a 2006 court case between Qdoba and Panera Bread where Massachusuetts Judge Jeffrey A Locke ruled that anything edible, placed between two slices of bread can be classified as a sandwich.

“In his ruling, Locke cited Webster’s definition of a sandwich and explained that the difference comes down to two slices of bread versus one tortilla: ‘A sandwich is not commonly understood to include burritos, tacos, and quesadillas, which are typically made with a single tortilla and stuffed with a choice filling of meat, rice, and beans,’ he wrote”
