(WHAS11) -- Sandwiches are always a lunch-time staple, but even more in the month of August because it is National Sandwich Month.

A Rabbi allegedly created the first sandwich during passover celebrations more than 2,000 years ago.

The sandwich is named after a British gambler named John Montague who was the Earl of Sandwich in the late 1700s. Since he needed to keep one hand free for cards, he put his meals between two slices of bread.
