The ham and cheese sandwich is one of the first close-faced sandwich ever recorded. Its origin has been debated for years, but the main theory is that an Irish immigrant started selling a bread dish in England in the 18th century. It grew popular and by the end of the century, street vendors all over London could be found selling the sandwich. The UK has even added a pickle to the sandwich for an added bit of crunch and flavor!
