When it comes to sandwiches, you can choose to keep it as simple or as unique as you would like. Everyone has a different preference when it comes to sandwiches. With so many toppings, spreads, and meats to choose from, it can be a challenge to decide what should go between those two pieces of bread. With so many sandwich decisions to be made, can you guess which sandwiches are the top six favorites in the U.S.?


Turkey sandwiches are the most popular choice in the United States. Your typical turkey sandwich consists of mayo, bread, lettuce, tomato, and turkey breast. Turkey is also commonly used in a club sandwich that contains all of the above listed ingredients in addition to ham and bacon.


It is no surprise that turkey’s right hand man ham is a close second. Most Americans like to combine these two deli meats in their sandwiches. However a ham sandwich can also stand alone – try making yours with cheddar cheese and yellow mustard.


Chicken sandwiches haven’t always been prevalent, but within the past decade the demand for chicken sandwiches has excelled. You can find a grilled or fried chicken breast inside a sesame seed bun almost anywhere these days. There is the classic chicken sandwich that contains a fried chicken breast with mayo, pickles, and a little bit of lettuce. This type of chicken sandwich can be found nationally.


This classic hardly gets the attention that it deserves. Everyone loves a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich from time to time, and you know they are a kid-approved choice as well. This delightful vegetarian choice can be made with any jelly of your choosing: Strawberry, raspberry, grape, apricot, apple, mango, blackberry, boysenberry, peach, cherry, pineapple, and orange. Choose from crunchy or creamy peanut butter for pairing.


The BLT is a classic American sandwich. It is a sandwich that is incomplete without three key ingredients: Bacon, lettuce, and tomato. The rest of the sandwich is up to you. Add pickles, jalapenos, avocado, onion and any other ingredients of your choosing. As far as condiments go, try ranch dressing or mayonnaise

Grilled Cheese

Everyone loves a good grilled cheese. This sandwich can always be counted on for cheesy goodness. Accompanied by tomato soup, it is definitely an American classic. This sandwich can be made casually with cheddar or American cheese, or make it more of a classy dish with a fancier cheese selection such as havarti or gruyere.
