The month of August can mean a lot of different things. It signals the end of summer vacation and the beginning of the school year. But did you know that August is also officially National Sandwich Month?
Named after John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, in the late 1700s (yes, this is a real thing!), this popular lunchtime delicacy has been enjoyed for hundreds of years, so it’s only right that we dedicate one month of the year to celebrate it. And what better way than to savor new sandwich choices at McArthur’s Bakery?!
Check out our fresh, delicious menu selections below to celebrate National Sandwich Month right!
Chicken Salad – You’re gonna go crazy for our freshly-made chicken salad sandwich! Made with shredded chicken breast, celery, mayonnaise, and sweet pickle, this sandwich kicks the pants off any other chicken salad you’ll ever have (well, if sandwiches wore pants, anyway). Want lettuce and tomato? You’ve got it!
Ham and Swiss – Served hot or cold, there’s really nothing like a delicious ham sandwich. Take it to the next level with our Virginia ham and Swiss on wheat berry bread, featuring a butter mustard spread on a delectable hoagie.
Hoisin Pulled Pork – Sure, there’s still plenty of time to pull the grill out and smoke some meat, but that involves effort. Make it easier on yourself by enjoying our slow-roasted pulled pork with hoisin BBQ sauce and ginger slaw on a toasted hoagie bun. You’ll thank us for keeping you out of the heat.
Italian – Get a taste of Italy with our sweet, sweet combination of Virginia ham, pepperoni, salami, sliced pepperoncini, and Italian garlic aioli with sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and provolone cheese. Served up on a fresh hoagie bun, this sandwich is filled to the brim with tasty goodness.
Mojo-Style Cubano – We know how to make your mouth water. Enter our Mojo-Style Cubano, which features slow-roasted mojo Cuban pork and sliced honey ham. Topped with Swiss cheese, house-made pickles, and sweet mustard, this sandwich is served panini-style and is guaranteed to steal the spotlight this summer!
Smashed Avocado Grilled Cheese – We know – not everyone wants to have meat on their sandwiches. So to all those vegetarians out there (or anyone who wants to mix things up a bit), we proudly present our smashed avocado grilled cheese sandwich! We panini press wheat berry bread, which is filled with smashed avocados, sliced tomatoes, and American and queso fresco cheeses, giving you a sandwich that’s sure to melt your heart.
Sweet Thai Chicken – Feeling like chicken? We’ve got you. Our irresistible, sweet Thai seasoned grilled chicken breast is topped with Thai carrot, radish, and cabbage slaw on a toasted hoagie bun.
Of course, we still have some old favorites for you to savor all summer long. Try out our Turkey Tango, California Club, The Lou, or Veg Head if you’re feeling nostalgic. And as always, you can’t go wrong with The Basics: turkey or ham with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and julienne pickles!
