A Gastronomic Alternative to the NATO Phonetic Alphabet

I’ve had some crazy sandwiches in my day, but this one certainly takes the cake (not to be confused with a sandwich cake).  Food blogger Nick Chipman recently constructed the Alphabet Sandwich, a dish that takes 26 ingredients, each starting with a unique letter of the alphabet, and crams them between bread.  Here’s a list of what he used:

Avocado
Bacon
Cheese
Doritos
Egg
Fish sticks
Garlic bread
Ham
Italian sausage patty
Jalapeño peppers
Krispy Kreme doughnut
Lettuce
Macaroni and cheese
Noodles
Onion rings
Pepperoni
Queso blanco dip
Ramen noodles
Spinach
Turkey burger
Usingers bratwurst
Veal Parmesan
Waffle
Xylocarp
Yams
Zucchini

He finds some creative solutions for more difficult letters.  For example, a xylocarp is a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees, so coconuts fall into that category.  It also happens to be one of the least disgusting ingredients used, as the sandwich also contains queso blanco dip, Doritos, and a Krispy Kreme doughnut.  Good luck with all of that.

  1. Noodles AND Ramen noodles? I’m making the same face I make when a song tries to pass off two lines that end in the same word as a rhyme.

  2. there weren’t better options?

    This is a totally acceptable list and I know I shouldn’t be too critical of it because there are some great ideas, but I think we can do a little better than “Cheese” for C. At least say Colby or something. Also spinach instead of salami? Who wants to eat that?

    A sandwich fit for a king! (Assuming generations of intrafamilial matchmaking and a violent peasant uprising.)

  5. old man fatima says:

    Is he going to unhinge his jaw to eat that thing?

    • Simon Spidermonk says:

      It’s probably just for looking at. If he was a snake, all the ingredients would start with S. Ssscience.

  6. Commentatrix says:

    Why wouldn’t he just use the Krispy Kremes instead of the bread?

  7. Casey says:

    Extra points for using bacon for B instead of bread, which would have been a bullshit cop out and everybody knows it.

  8. flanny says:

    I’ll admit, I was grossed out until I saw the onion rings, and then I was like, “Oooooh yeaaaaah.”
