Project: Design the Ultimate American Sandwich

What's the most American sandwich of all? Design a new sammy to rep the USA.

Next week, GOOD will release its map of the United States of GOOD Sandwiches, a curated list of the most culturally significant and locally-produced sammies across this great nation. In the meantime, we're asking you to expand your stomachs even further: Help us design the ultimate national sandwich. We're looking for the sandwich with the most American pedigree possible—a hand-held meal that draws from American culture both high and low and weds ingredients from states east, west and in-between. Make our sandwich eagle proud! Think sprout-covered hotdogs, Sriracha-drizzled cheesesteaks, and vegan, multi-grain Sloppy Joes. Then, let your sammy flag fly by downloading this wallpaper of a bald eagle preparing to ensnare a massive sandwich in its beak. For America.

Design the ultimate American sandwich.

Assemble your ingredients and send us a photograph of your ideal U.S. sammy. Then, justify your choice and tell us how it tastes.

Submit your photograph and description here. Photos should be JPG images, 450 pixels wide and less than 1 MB in size. The deadline is noon PST on Tuesday, September 27. Then, we'll compile the greatest GOOD sammies in the USA and announce a winner. The creator of the most American sandwich will receive a GOOD T-shirt and see their design displayed on
