Here are some examples of sandwiches from many cultures. First on the list is that the Vietnamese baguette is smaller than its French counterpart, created from a wheat and rice flour blend. Fill your Vietnamese baguette with chicken (or a protein of your choosing), pickled veggies, and fresh seasonings to produce a delectable bành mi (coriander and cucumber). Spread a little mayonnaise on your baguette for added flavor, then relax and enjoy!

Before putting it under the broiler, a slice of ham, pineapple, and cheese is placed on white bread slices smeared with mustard. To finish, add a cherry or cranberry jam to the top. This white bread steamed in a bamboo basket is a favorite for everyone. Bao originated in China and is typically filled with a pork mixture (in traditional varieties), although you can stuff it with pickled vegetables, meat, salmon, mushrooms, or even chocolate!

This sandwich, firmly ingrained in American popular culture, is as satisfying as tasty. and incredibly economical! “Broodje” refers to a sandwich, while “Kroket” refers to a fried meatball coated in breadcrumbs.

You’re probably more familiar with the term “Panini,” which is the plural form of “Panino,” but whatever you call it, this grilled Italian sandwich is popular with everyone.

You can efficiently serve it with fries on the side! Finally, this triple-decker sandwich (the club sandwich) with roast chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and a hefty covering of mayo is a favorite among Americans.
