Ensure you never run out of lunch ideas with this list of 250 sandwich ideas.

It has been said that the first sandwich was invented back in 1762 in Sandwich, England. The Earl of Sandwich asked his servant to bring him a slice of cold meat between two pieces of bread – and the rest is history. Since then, the sandwich has spawned numerous offspring, from burgers to open-face ‘wiches to grilled and bite-sized, and even sweet ice cream sandwiches. And, we can’t forget about wraps, pitas or fajitas, too.
