It’s a throw back from the 1930’s, and it’s just as crazy and delicious… and admittedly, just as hard to eat today as it was back then. But boy, is it fun to build! I’m talking about The Dagwood Sandwich, an insanely layered ginormous sandwich of deli meats, cheeses, pickles and tomatoes named after that silly, bumbling Dagwood Bumstead from the comic strip Blondie, created by American cartoonist Chic Young nearly a century ago. Dagwood was the original foodie, I think; a chow-hound who would raid the refrigerator and devour everything in sight. As the comic strip evolved, so did Dagwood’s sandwiches. They just got bigger and more ridiculous, stacking crazy combinations like sardines, baked beans, onions and horseradish. Blondie became the widest read comic strip of its time, and now I’m wondering if part of the popularity was just to see what Dagwood was dishin’ up this time! While there is no real “official” Dagwood Sandwich, here’s a version that Blondie’s food-crazed hubby would love. I’m certain of it!
