November 3 is celebrated as World Sandwich Day. The yummy staple got its name after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. According to some cricket experts, the Earl had a significant role to play in the realm of cricket. He was born on November 13, 1718 and a lot of historians are of the view that in 1762, during a 24-hour gambling bout, John Montagu, wanted his food to be prepared in such a way that it wouldn’t interfere with his game and this gave birth to the comfort snack. Over the centuries, there have been many variations of the tasty treat. Here are a few sandwiches that will leave your mouth watering and can be easily made at home.

Food Historians also believe that the club sandwich may have originated at the Union Club of New York City.
