Does A Sandwich Have To Include Bread? Jimmy Dean Says, “Heck No”

November 1, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Breakfast sausage and sandwich maker Jimmy Dean (Tyson Foods) is intrigued by America’s growing tendency to eat sandwiches without bread. A third of Americans are swearing off bread in the coming year, and half have eaten breadless sandwiches. To celebrate National Sandwich Day earlier this month, as well as the debut of its Jimmy Dean Delights Egg'wich sandwich, the brand is asking Americans, probably tongue-in-cheek, to sign a petition to change the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of a sandwich to include those made with – and without – bread. Why must a sandwich, the company asks, be defined by bread? So it’s not too surprising that the new Egg’wich is made with sausage and cheese packed between two egg frittatas rather than bread slices. The sandwich contains 13-14 g of protein per serving with no artificial colors or flavors.[Image Credit: © Tyson Foods, Inc.]
