Sandwich Glossary S-T

The Sandwich Glossary S-T gives you words and terms that have to do with this perfect, portable meal. It can be as simple or as complex as you like. You can take it to work for lunch or eat it for breakfast or dinner.

The list below contains words we have found so far that begin with S or T. You can add to the list as well. We've added a form below and you can add a term and the definition of a word that we haven't listed.

It would be really great if our international visitors could add words that relate as well. Pretty soon we'll have a great resource.
