Today Is National Sandwich Day!
Today is a celebration of one of the most popular foods in America -- the sandwich! National Sandwich Day is a time to remember why we love sandwiches oh so much (as if we ever forgot). This day became an actual thing after 18th century English noble John Montagu, wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve his lunchmeat between two slices of bread.

Needless to say, this man was brilliant! If you love sandwiches as much as he did then and we do now, then you came to the right place. Sandwich hacks are a MUST if you want to make the most out of your lunch or dinner plans.

So, open your mind (and your mouth) because it's time to celebrate National Sandwich Day right!

1. Put your sandwich condiments in condiment holders so your sandwich doesn't get soggy by lunch time.

2. To keep wraps and burritos from falling apart, warm your tortilla before you start rolling everything together.

3. Try making the PB&J 2.0 sandwich with strawberry jam, honey, marshmallow fluff, two kinds of peanut butter, and Nutella.

4. Instead of butter, try making your grilled cheese with mayonnaise.

5. To beat soggy sandwiches, let your tomato slices rest on a paper towel while you're preparing the rest of your sandwich.

6. If you're making your own hoagie or sub, only slice the baguette 3/4 of the way through so ingredients don't fall off.

7. Make a quick breakfast sandwich in a mug: Spray it with Pam, tadd an egg, cheese, meat, veggies, and anything else. Microwave it for one minute, then slide the contents onto a toasted bagel.

Handle them gently so they remain juicy and plump and be sure to allow the resting time once they're coated with the crumb mixture. This helps the coating adhere better and takes the chill off the oysters so they don't cool down the oil as much when added to the pan.
Add enough oil to the pan to be equal to about 1/2 the thickness of the oysters. In most cases 1/4-inch depth works well, but if your oysters are especially plump, you may want to add a bit more.
Work in batches and don't overcrowd the pan. Overcrowding will lower the temperature of the oil too much. This can cause the coating to fall off and the oysters to absorb more oil than they should.
Turn the oysters over with tongs when you start to see a little moisture form on the upper side - about 2-1/2 to 3 minutes should do it.
You can keep the cooked oysters warm by putting them on a baking sheet in a single layer and placing them in a preheated 250°F oven for the few minutes it takes to cook the next batch. Just don't cover them, they'll get soggy.
If you have an electric skillet, by all means use it. The precise temperature control will provide excellent results.
