He may not have been the first to eat meat between two slices of bread, but Sandwich did lend the now-famous food his name. Allegedly, 1762, the Earl was deep into a marathon poker game and couldn’t be bothered to leave the gaming table for dinner. So he asked a servant to bring him a piece of meat stuffed between two slices of toast so he wouldn’t smear food on his cards. Wonder what he think of a pastrami and rye sandwich!
