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.


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!

I was the same way about pork chops. My mother, who incinerated everything from eggs to burgers, cooked pork chops even longer. Because of her pork chops I was 30 before I found out that pork chops were white, tender and juicy.

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)

It looks like a hot dog bun, but made with  rye and wheat flour, it has a much darker appearance and most I find around the La Crosse area will have seeds on the top.

I'm having a problem with their use of the word "sandwich." To me, a hot dog is not a sandwich - it's a hot dog. And North Carolina is more than just barbecue or BBQ.....I'd like to see pimiento cheese on white bread as our state "sandwich."

I agree that a hot dog is not a sandwich. But, how about a burger?

Then how does it that much differ from a cheesesteak?? Meat stuck into a bun.

And besides, you see more folks in NC eating pulled pork mounded onto a plate with slaw, fries/beans, bread or hushpuppies alongside than you see folks eating a pulled pork sandwich.

Chicken parm for Connecticut? Nah! A steak sandwich, a lobster roll, a hotdog.


Fully agree - steak sandwich on a hard roll, hot (or cold) lobster roll or a hot dog from numerous roadside stands is much more a draw for me than a chicken parm.   

I just moved from Missouri to Connecticut and, wow, grinders. Everywhere there are grinders.  All pizza joints have grinders. There's a place that offers falafel and shawarma and grinders.
 
And it's funny about the chicken parm because that's been my gauge of quality. I figure, if they bother to prepare good chicken and marinara, then the other grinders are probably fine too.  I live in Middletown and have so far tried chicken parm at two nearby pizza places: Zerio's and No Anchovies (both technically in Cromwell).  Zerio's blew No Anchovies out of the water - their chicken had the taste and texture of real breast filets, the marinara was excellent, and the provolone generous.  No Anchovies' chicken was a processed slab, like it was minced and pressed together, and the sauce was bland.
 
I'm not much for seafood (then why'd I move to New England, right, yeah yeah), but if a steak sandwich is more the "signature" grinder then I'll add that for comparison.

The steak sandwich I posted about is not a sub or a grinder. It's shaved eye of the round (usually) slices grilled on a flattop and served on toast or a hard roll (my preference is on toast). It often has a slice of tomato and/or a slice of raw onion, or grilled onion.

I'd like to say Phillipe's French Dip, but that's too localized. 
 
California is too big to have one sandwich.
 
So,  I'll say that California's state sandwich is the...

Oh, Phillipe's French Dip. Chewy keeps talking about Billy's photos of that sandwich. I never did see that picture.

That's the thing.  When a state is tiny it's easy to have a state sandwich.

I didn't see Tennessee listed, but if I had to guess I would say it would be a Pimento Cheese sandwich. You can't always find it everywhere you go, but quite a few of the restaurants I frequent have some sort of menu item with pimento cheese added.

For me, it's the sliced london broil on a hard roll (also not a grinder, but also not the shaved steak typical for a Phili cheese steak) as typically served at delis & diners.

Didn't Ms Dupree refer to pimento cheese as the pate of tha south? Actually, it's increasingly available as you move down the Delmarva peninsula as well.

If you define a sandwich as anything, including but not limited to things like meats, tuna salad, egg salad, sardines, PBJ Etc., served between 2 slices of a bread product, then a hot dog has to be included as a sandwich.
Tacos, however, don't fit the sandwich category IMHO!

I  don't  know about my 3  states of Missouri, Kansas, and Oregon.  Hamburgers for Kansas, but the other 2 raise questions.
Fish Sanwich for Oregon?
Missouri, like Pennsylvania, has 2 different cities/cultures on opposite sides of the state.
I'll go ahead and say Burnt Ends, though it barely qualifies as a sandwich other than resting on bread. I still think Italian Steak Sandwiches should be a staple on every menu, but the World doesn't agree with me, it seems.  :(

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.


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!

I was the same way about pork chops. My mother, who incinerated everything from eggs to burgers, cooked pork chops even longer. Because of her pork chops I was 30 before I found out that pork chops were white, tender and juicy.

 
Yes indeed! Back then they thought pork had to be charred beyond edible to kill bacteria!

pineyhill-would love a rye bun. Just havent seen them around here-yet. What stores are you able to buy them at in your area?

 
We get consistently decent buns at Kwik Trip made with rye flour, a lot of other so called rye buns are made of wheat flour only which means a bit different flavor.

I've seen the rye buns at Carle's in Bucyrus, Ohio, but I've never bought them. Next time I'm there to buy brats I'll buy a package.

Ann (and pineyhill too), I lived in Fond du Lac for many years, and my sister is in Meno Falls for thirty years, and I admit I was surprised too.  Living over there, I had never seen one of those buns, that I can recall.  Then, moving over here, they are all over, and the interesting thing is they are often referred to as "Milwaukee" buns.  Just google Village Hearth Milwaukee buns, for example.
 
The website calls them "wheat" buns.  I don't know if other similar products are actually rye, or just another "wheat" bun, which of course is just regular wheat flour with brown dye (excuse me, caramel coloring) added.
 
Anyway, never saw them over there, but they're everywhere over here.  They are just a regular size bun, with sesame seends.  We do like them, and buy them often just for hot dogs if not brats.

I agree with MiamiDon on the Cuban sandwich for Florida. Yes, We also have a lot of great grilled or fried fish sandwiches, but you can get those in many other states as well. The cuban seems quintessentially floridian to me
