Dagwood Sandwich

This Dagwood Sandwich gets a solid two thumbs up. It’s a classic in the making!

Every once in a while we get messages asking if it’s okay to add additional ingredients to this sandwich. Can I add cold cuts? What about a favourite mustard? Can I add an additional piece of bread and make it a triple-decker? The answer to these and all other questions are the same – yes, yes, YES! A DAGWOOD SANDWICH is made using whatever you want.

I’m hoping the proverbial light bulb just went on over your head – this sandwich is as good as what you put in it. Mine became a favourite by accident; I was hungry and needed a quick lunch, so I gathered everything I could find to make a sandwich. That’s the beauty of this creation, it changes almost every time.

Here are some tips on creating your own DAGWOOD SANDWICH:

Ingredients for a dagwood sandwich

Some like to say, this sandwich has it all. For the bread component, consider all your options: white, brown, whole wheat, rye, French stick, and so on. Make sure your bread is fresh and don’t forget to toast it for added flavour.

Crispy bacon is wonderful in a Dagwood

Although I always add bacon whenever I have it on hand, I’ve also had great success using cold cuts, meatloaf and thin-sliced roasts. The same goes for the cheese. I’m partial to cheddar but whether it’s Swiss, Havarti, Monteray Jack or cream cheese, they all belong here.

Tomato and lettuce for the inside of the sandwich.

Fresh vegetables are a welcome addition to this sandwich, and although mine only calls for tomato and lettuce, you can also add cucumber, zucchini, shaved slaw and even grilled favourites.

Condiments are also a welcome addition to this sandwich and mayonnaise has always been my first and only choice. That said if you really want to amp up the flavour profile try making this HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE, you won’t be disappointed. Of course, you can try other spreads and condiments too so just add your favourite and enjoy!

Other things that go well with this classic include our incredible HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP and our CREAM OF ASPARAGUS. A delicious bowl of soup partnered with a fabulous sandwich such as this is always well received.

Looking for a really delicious classic, then look no further – a DAGWOOD SANDWICH has it all!
