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…
