Today in Questionable Sandwiches

Posted by on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 at 9:05 AM

NPR reports on the sandwich known as the Ignatius R., "with enough calories to get us to the end of winter," from Jerry's in Chicago. It does seem like it would have a deleterious effect on one's pyloric valve—it's got:

• fried chicken
• cold hickory-smoked sirloin
• applewood bacon
• fried shrimp
• fried green tomato
• mortadella
• country ham
• fresh mozzarella
• pickled okra
• American cheese
• tomato
• Carolina vinegar
• and "southwest mayo"

...on a potato bun for $24.95. But then again, it's -2 degrees in Chicago right now, and Jerry's might be delivering—they say to call and try them. Chicago Fan, why don't you see if they'll bring you one for lunch?

Thanks, rob!

That looks like fun at a party or after a long day of body dysmorphia.

Also see if they'll bring me one, please? I'm in downtown Seattle, thanks.

That's not a sandwich, it's a buffet on a bun.

Food is not served well if it cannot be eaten easily and the avalanche of messiness is overpowering. It's an insult to a good sandwich. It's an insult to all good cooks. It's an insult the wait staff to end up tossing a good part of it away.

It's gloomy enough where I am today that I was totally on board—'til I got to the pickled okra.

If only there were a bottle of Dr. Nut to wash it all down.
