Mouthwatering, juicy corned beef Reubens and flavorful seafood Po’boys made a name for American sandwiches around the world.
Americans consume an average of 45 billion sandwiches each year which makes the sandwich one of the most traditional convenience foods in the US. Much like Americans, Russians also have a thing for this type of light meal. Russian sandwiches, however, are much less sophisticated then the loaded Chicken Bacon Ranch Melt or the Italian Chicken Panini we see at Subway or Panera Bread.
A Russian sandwich is usually served open-faced style with a slice of bread topped with a slice of bread topped with some incredibly filling ingredients. Some variations, like red caviar served over whole wheat toast, are extremely nutritious and healthy. Others, like an inch-thick slice of ‘Salo’, a Ukrainian version of a rich, fatty bacon, served over some freshly baked white bread, should never be mentioned during an annual check-up appointment with your physician. Nonetheless, most Slavic sandwiches are great treats that can satisfy both your taste buds and hunger. Here is a line-up of the 25 most popular Russian sandwiches in all their glory.
