December 17, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we look back at the time we tried McDonald's beloved and mysterious McRib. It's usually out in October, but it comes a little late this year, so it's better timed as a sign of the coming apocalypse.
December 10, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we celebrate Hanukkah with the Latke Double Down, a Jewish take on the classic KFC sandwich which replaced bread with fried chicken. It's eight nights of calories in one, easy to hold package.
November 26, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we make our own version of a special from Asia's Freshness Burger chain: The Butter And Sugar Burger. Spoiler alert: It has two ingredients, and they are butter and sugar. And it's on a bun.
November 19, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try Le Whif breathable chocolate. It's a great way to get your chocolate fix without all the pesky chewing. It's also the perfect thing if you've been meaning to start smoking but want to ease your way in.
November 12, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, West Virginia native Ian brings back a delicacy only found in his home state: the mighty pepperoni roll. Sandwich Monday is a little different this week because Ian punched anybody who tried to make fun of it.
Angry Whopper, Angry Peter.
November 5, 2012 To honor the 55th Anniversary of the Whopper, Burger King is offering the Angry Whopper, which first debuted a few years ago. It's a spicy version of their classic burger, made with jalapenos and special sauce, and it's angry because it wishes it had done more with its life.
October 29, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try a Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich, a recipe dating back to the Great Depression. It's an unlikely recipe The New York Times compares to the marriage of Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett. Not cool, New York Times. Not cool.
October 22, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try a new take on a sandwich classic. In the spirit of the KFC Double Down, which replaces bread with fried chicken, we make a grilled cheese using a doughnut in the place of the bread. It's a good first step on the path to replacing all of our food with doughnuts.
October 15, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try the Candwich, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a can. The makers say it has an extended shelf life over conventional sandwiches, staying fresh for years. This is good, because it may take decades to get up the nerve to eat it.
June 21, 2010 A listener Sandwich Monday...a New Yorker goes to Texas to try Frito pie.
The porchetta sandwich.

May 10, 2010 Today, we set out to find the fabled McDonald's Secret Menu. It's a list of a dozen or so dishes known only to the ancients, but that the good people behind the counter will get for you if you only know how to ask.
May 3, 2010 Sandwich Monday: The Mother-In-Law. The Wait, Wait staff tries a Chicago mainstay: the Chicago hot dog, with a tamale replacing the hot dog.
