Nationa Cold Cut Day Enjoy a Dagwood

Cold Cuts Day is expressed on March 3rd and is here to celebrate anything and everything related to cold cut meats. Who nominated cold cuts to have a day of their own no one really knows. Most of us for sure have some lunch meat in our fridge and many of us probably use it as a staple for lunches, snacks or quick meals. Cold cuts come in many shapes and forms. From leftover ham, turkey or chicken to deli sliced pastrami, salami, chorizo, sausage or corned beef.

One character that I believe could have really celebrated this day is Dagwood. Now he truly loved his cold cuts in a sandwich piled as high as you can get one.

3 slices rye sandwich bread
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
4 slices deli ham
2 slices American cheese
2 leaves iceberg lettuce
4 slices bologna
4 slices salami
6 dill pickle chips
3 slices tomato
4 slices turkey
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 pimiento stuffed green olives

Lay the three slices of bread out on a cutting board. Smear two of them with a tablespoon each of the yellow mustard. Smear the last one with mayonnaise. Top one of the mustard smeared slices of rye bread with the ham, cheese, lettuce, and bologna. Top the second mustard smeared slice of rye bread with the salami, pickle chips, tomato slices, turkey, Swiss cheese, and the third slice of rye bread, mayonnaise side down. Stack this unit on top of the first mustard smeared slice. Skewer each green olive with a toothpick. Secure the sandwich with these. Slice the sandwich in half if you'd like
