Folks have been enjoying meat and vegetables on slices of baked bread for a long time. But it wasn’t until 1762 that the Earl of Sandwich first coined the term. So the legend goes (according to the British Sandwich Association):it all started when John Montagu,the fourth Earl of Sandwich called for his manservant to bring him some cuts of meat between slices of bread so he could eat while continuing to play cards (he was a gambler). Sandwich’s sandwich was popular and soon his friends were asking for the “same as Sandwich.”The rest is history.
