WE PRESENT INSTRUCTIONS for the assembly of select sandwiches from French Cook Book for American Families, by Xavier Raskin. Published in 1922, this book is in the Public Domain and available at archive.org for the delectation of all.

LETTUCE SANDWICHES: Place dry, tender lettuce leaves between buttered slices of bread. Spread each leaf with a little Mayonnaise, trim off the crusts, and cut sandwich into triangulars.

CLUB SANDWICH: Arrange crisp lettuce leaves between buttered slices of bread, and add any of the following, thoroughly cold: a broiled slice of bacon, a fried egg turned over, or a poached egg. Spread with a little Mayonnaise and cut into shape as above. Occasionally a thin slice of white chicken meat is substituted for bacon.

WINDSOR SANDWICH: Cut into small pieces some cooked white chicken meat, and as much boiled lean ham or pickled tongue. Pound these to a paste, adding 2 or 3 anchovies. Rub through a sieve, then mix with a little Mayonnaise. Arrange crisp lettuce leaves between buttered slices of bread and spread mixture over leaves. Cut into shape as above.

If you decide to prepare and attempt to enjoy a sandwich inspired by this offering, kindly send a picture to us at indignity@indignity.net.
