The sandwich is the perfect meal to pack in a picnic basket, lunchbox or even briefcase. Sandwiches are portable and can be customized to fit your tastes. Maybe that is why people all over the world eat so many sandwiches each year. But sandwiches are not just for lunch anymore. It is not uncommon to see sandwiches on menus for breakfast and dinner too.
The breakfast sandwiches we see at restaurants usually do not stray from the usual egg, meat and cheese combo but the type of bread does vary somewhat. If you are at the drive through, English muffins, biscuits and croissants are the most common options with a few exceptions. At a sit down restaurant you can be a bit more creative by adding sauces or vegetables to your sandwich. The variety of meats may also be expanded to include ham, steak or even chicken.
