Big Sandwiches For The Big Game

Alright, y'all, we're getting really close to the "big game." It's time to start thinking about the "big buffet." I'm talking about the spread you need to put together to maximize the pleasure of the Super Bowl Sunday experience. It's practically a national holiday so the food has to be on point. After all, what would the 4th of July be without a hot dog? Just hot.

Here's an idea: include iconic sandwiches from the areas where the two Super Bowl teams call home. Between New England and Philadelphia, there's a lot of good stuff you can put on your buffet. While you're at it, why not throw in something from the host city of Minneapolis? Moving from east to west, here are the sandwiches of Super Bowl LII:

New England Sandwiches

1. Lobster Roll (below) - Big chunks of lobstah on a hot dog bun.
2. Clam Roll - Same idea as #1. Make mine fried!
3. Italian Spuckie or Grinder - Other names for a sub.
4. Fluffernutter - Peanut butter and marshmallow on white bread.

Philadelphia Sandwiches

1. Cheesesteak (below) - Pat's, Geno's, Jim's...take your pick!
2. Roast Pork Sandwich - Don't forget the broccoli rabe.
3. Italian Hoagie - It's what Rocky calls a sub.
4. The Schmitter - Cheesesteak with salami, tomatoes, and Schmitter sauce (mayo, ketchup, relish, Worcestershire) on toasted kaiser roll
