Restaurant Uses Pickles as Bread for Their Sandwiches

Elsie’s, in Haddon Township, New Jersey, innovated their sandwiches by replacing bread with thick pickles.

Pickles is the most commonly used side dish for a sandwich in the US. But now the tables have turned as a restaurant near Philadelphia decided to go meta on their sandwiches by using pickles as buns.

Elsie’s, home of the original pickle sandwich, created the world’s first low-carb, bread-free sandwich—and it probably has more pickles than any other sandwich ever.

You can try their signature sandwich which has a split-down-the-middle kosher pickle, or build your own from scratch, with a choice of meats, cheeses, and toppings.

There are also roll-up sandwiches, sort of like a two-bite wrap. There is always the option to replace bread with pickles or cucumbers. An order of this has six pieces.

Co-owner of Elsie’s, Katherine Cohen, shared with Thrillist, “So essentially, we’re a sandwich shop without the bread.”

“We have a family pickle recipe that we resurrected,” she adds.

Whatever you feel towards this new food discover, you have to admit, it’s kind of a big dill…
