It's National Sandwich Month!

Get your bread and peanut butter ready.

August is National Sandwich Month!

A rabbi allegedly created the first sandwich during Passover celebrations more than 2-thousand years ago.

Back then, a sandwich was just bitter herbs between two pieces of matza.

Since then, the sandwich has evolved.

You can customize it with whatever meats, veggies and cheeses you like.

In case you were wondering about the name...a British gambler named John Montague was the Earl of Sandwich in the late 17-hundreds.

Since he needed to keep one hand free for cards, he put his meals between two slices of bread.
