Who would have thought sticking something between two slices of bread would make for one of the most comforting and soul-satisfying meals that man ever created — the glorious sandwich.

Whether it’s a quick peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the go, or maybe something more elaborate with fancy cheese and juicy cuttings of meat, the sandwich can be as humble or as extravagant as time permits.

The special sandwich is filled with artichoke hearts, roasted mushrooms, jack cheese, tomato, iceberg lettuce, pesto aioli, and dijon sauce.
