6/13/2016 – Sandwiches


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Before we get into the questions, I’d like to announce that today is the 100th installment of Five Course Trivia! Thanks to everyone who have tagged along for all this time, and I look forward to many more installments as a reach my goal of knowing all food.

Last Friday, we had a Food/Drink question, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL69, MD12) – A distinctly American sandwich comprising an absurd number of layers of various meats, cheeses, vegetables, and condiments takes its name from that of what popular comic-strip character?

I’ve been a comic strip fan ever since I was a child, and the famous Dagwood sandwich was known by me. While I’ve seen Dagwood eat plenty of his sandwiches, I feel like I’ve seen Shaggy and Scooby knock down more of them. By the way, have any of you actually tried eating a Dagwood sandwich? It seems…pretty difficult. My love for the funnies now puts me at 5 for 5 in Food/Drink questions. What food hysteria is this?

Today’s post is all about sandwiches. Enjoy the 100th episode!

1. Name the sandwich seen here.
