Eponymous Sandwiches

No finer tribute exists than to have one's name associated with a sandwich. The term sandwich itself is a tribute (to the late earl), and the name is now known in nearly every language. Sandwiches are more than merely food—they are our friends. As they are our friends, we give them names: hero, hoagie, club, French dip. But great and iconic sandwiches take the names of great and iconic people. From the Dagwood to the Gatsby, here are 6 sandwiches with famous names. These recipes first appeared with Daniel Pinkwater's story Say My Name from issue #137.
