Each and every state is proud of its famous sandwiches. Since we love sandwiches as much as any other hand-held dish, we've decided to take a summer road trip around the country, one sandwich at a time. Our first battle features big-time coastal rivals: California out west and New York back east.
Pictured at the top is the California Chicken Sandwich from MyRecipes. It features that classic California ingredient that always tastes best on the west coast- avocado. In addition, it includes a citrus mayo (CA grows a lot of fruit) and a flavorful marinade for the chicken.
Then, there's the hefty stalwart challenger from New York, the Reuben Sandwich from Simply Recipes, below. To make a Reuben, you pile corned beef, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut on toasted rye bread with a schmear of deli mustard. If you haven't had one in New York, especially at Katz's Deli on Houston Street, it's time to book a ticket!
Let us know which state sandwich you prefer in the comments and try your hand at one today. We think you can't beat the Reuben!
