It's over 840 miles by road from Key West to Pensacola, so I don't think there is any one sandwich that represents that whole route, but I'd vote for the Cuban (mixto) sandwich down here in SoFla.

The Panhandle would probably vote for a Grouper or Mullet Sandwich.

Guess she hasn't got to the Pork Tenderloin for Indiana, yet.

I'd bet Iowa would arm wrestle you for that one!

Iowa at least has the Maid-Rite as a fallback...does Indiana have anything other than the BPT?

If I had to pick between Iowa and Indiana for the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich, despite the pride of both states, I would have to pick Indiana if only one gets to claim the sandwich. Despite what Iowans think, they are more pervasive in Indiana and extend into more restaurants of all strata. Does Indiana have an alternative? A fried catfish sandwich was suggested by another site reviewing state sandwiches but I had always known catfish as a plate dinner and not a sandwich in Indiana.
 
For many years the Maid-Rite loose meat sandwich was Iowa first and foremost when it came to mention. I think the Iowa Pork Producers Association elevated the BPT over the Maid-Rite in just the past decade with its best pork tenderloin sandwich contest - a stroke of marketing genius.

Here in Maryland both pit beef and crabcake sandwiches have fanatical followings, but my personal fave is a fried softshell crab sandwich.
+1, though pit beef may be a bit more centralized to the greater Baltimore area.  I'm going to guess the crab cake will be the state sandwich of Maryland.


The thing is, Hon, you've gotta know that the crab cake shouldn't be served on bread, it's served on saltines. Nuf said!!

I associate Maid Rite's with Iowa not the BPT. So on that, Iowa should be a MR.
 
BPT for Indiana.
 
I was also thinking, for Kentucky, the Hot Brown of course. Although in the eastern half the Chili Bun would be the choice.
New York almost has to be cut in two. Pastrami on Rye in NYC area and Beef on Weck in WNY.
West Virginia and Virginia could both use the Hot Dog "All the way"
The Coney Dog for Michigan although the Pasty may qualify.
Ohio could also use the Coney Dog however it would have to be with Cinci Chili as well they could use the Double Decker.

It has to be the cheesesteak, with all due respect to the Italian roast pork sandwich and Italian hoagie (no comment on Primanti's!).

No doubt that it has to be the cheesesteak.  I was just stating my personal preference.

While it's a great sandwich, it's so regionally oriented to SW Pennsylvania and not well known by non-yenzers, I'm inclined to give the honor to the Cheesesteak. Even Buffetbuster agrees in the above post.

If that's the case I'll go with a Lutefisk on Lefse for Minnesota
and a Baked Beans on Brown Bread for Massachusetts.

Baked beans on brown bread was listed in the Stern's sandwich book that came out about 5 years ago.  Apparently this was a favorite of the late chef Julia Child

I happen to be a big fan of baked beans on/and brown bread. Trouble is, now I have to order the canned B&M brown bread -- or bake it myself. It was one of my favorite meals as a kid, possibly because it was one of the very few things my mother was unable to ruin.

I have my doubts about the Italian Beef for Illinois. It's more of a Chicago area thing and I don't think you see it much when you get 100 miles away. Also in the area I live in the add on are gardinera or sport peppers, not green pepper.


I think she has it covered -- giardiniera for the hots, roasted green bell for the sweets (don't usually see sports on a beef, only dogs). But I think you have a point about it representing the whole state. Maybe a better candidate would be the horseshoe, which was invented in Springfield, the state capital.

No surprise that N Carolina gets represented by a bbq pork. Lots of variety goes with the cut of pork, type of sauce base and slaw. I'm wary of the type of slaw pictured. Looks like simple green cabbage with a vinegar tang but most will offer slaw with a tomato/vinegar base or opposite direction with mayo. Sad to say most Carolina restaurants feature bbq in some fashion and fail in one or all the aspects of the sandwich. The best are usually not from retail but church or community bbqs. Just be looking for a cooker or smoke stack with piles of hickory feeding a fire barrel.

Hot dogs should be off the board as far as sandwiches. Too many States would potentially be best represented via the hot dog...until it's no longer a sandwich project.

I just found out we, here in Wisconsin, near Brookfield-are getting a Maid-Rite! Curious to try one. Back to our state sandwich- I agree with others it would be a brat. Screaming Chicken suggests it would be served on a hard roll-which is fantastic. But having lived in Sheboygan for 5 years, thats an area thing. Everywhere else I have been, a brat is served on a good old brat bun( very different from a hot dog bun)

Except you don't see a horseshoe much outside of Springfield! I don't think either one could represent whole state because it's so diverse from north to south!

I agree, kland. In northern Illinois it is either a Chi-town style dog or Italian beef.More southern it may be a horseshoe-my cousin lives in Marion, and I have seen neither on a menu there........

That's funny, off topic, my aunt was the best cook I ever knew, but, she fried liver to the point of incineration! I grew up hating liver, until I had calf's liver that was cooked correctly and it was a marvelous thing!
